Gullfoss and Geysir and Thingvellir Direct Day Tour

Golden Circle Day tour in Iceland

This ever popular tour allows you to experience the thrill of an erupting geyser, one of the country´s most spectacular waterfalls and Iceland´s best-loved national park, all within the space of few hours. 

We visit the world-famous high-temperature Geysir geothermal area with spouting springs of various formations and the nearby Gullfoss waterfall (Golden Falls) where you can watch its enormous quantities of water tumble violently into a deep, meandering gorge. Our last stop is at Þingvellir National Park, the site of Iceland´s ancient parliament and the place where you can see the American and Eurasian tectonic plates pulling apart at the rate of a few centimetres per year. 

Whether you take the morning or the afternoon tour, you will spend your time encountering a cross-section of Iceland's natural wonders and geological phenomena at Thingvellir National Park, an area of historical and geological significance.

Guidance in English every day and Scandinavian on Sundays.
