What You Can Expect

Golden Circle Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik

Golden Circle Classic Day Trip from Reykjavik

Depart your central Reykjavik hotel or Reykjavik cruise port by air-conditioned coach and venture into Iceland’s starkly beautiful interior of rugged peaks, pastures and volcanic plains.
Make your first stop at Nesjavellir, a power plant in the geothermal region around Lake Thingvallavatn. Take in panoramic views of the plant that harnesses the area’s natural propensity for generating power, and hear how it produces renewable energy for more than half of Reykjavik's population.
Continue from here along the famous Golden Circle, the sightseeing route that showcases three of Iceland’s most spectacular natural wonders.
Stop by at Thingvellir National Park, a region of untouched beauty steeped in ancient history. Learn how it’s home to the original, outdoor site of Iceland’s first parliamentary assembly, the Althingi, that began in 930, and see the extraordinary Thingvellir rift, where the tectonic plates of America and Eurasia face each other over a narrow valley.
Snap photos as your guide explains how the plates are gradually pulling apart, and then continue to the Gullfoss waterfall. Marvel at the double-tiered falls and, with luck, catch sight of one of the famous rainbows that forms in the mists.
Next, visit the incredible geothermal region of Geysir, known for its hot springs and geysers. Take in the bubbling pools and steam vents, and see Strokkur, a waterspout that shoots to around 98 feet (30 meters) in the air.
Your tour then ends back at the original start point in Reykjavik.

Everything about this trip was fantastic. The tour guide Kristina was so full of knowledge and extremely pleasant. The coach driver was carful and cautious on slippery roads. The National park and tectonic plates area was beautiful scenery. The Gulfloss waterfalls were amazing. The Geysers erupted every 5 minutes. We had a very enjoyable day out

The whole experience was fantastic! Our guide Hally was amazingly knowledgeable and kept us informed the whole day. He kindly added a couple of extra stops for us at a second waterfall and at a horse ranch allowing us to see even more of this amazing country. We really enjoyed the smaller mini bus excursion which ran like clockwork despite the difficult driving conditions. Highly recommend this trip.
