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.

Loved everything about the tour. Tour guide was very entertaining and informative. Bus seats were more comfortable than the airline seats. Also, free WiFi on the bus. It's a shame that everything is so expensive in Iceland.

This was an excellent trip and well worth the money. Christina and Valdoosh apologies for the spelling or mis-pronunciation of the name were excellent as a guide and coach driver. We were only in Reykjavik for 3 nights and we wanted to fit in as much as we could and this trip covered a lot of ground, the coach was really comfortable and we went through some stunning scenery on the way to the first stop. I would certainly recommend it and the tour company.
