Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Golden Circle Express Tour from Reykjavik including Gullfoss and Geysir

Gulfoss and Geysir Express Half-Day Trip from Reykjavik

Start your afternoon with a pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, and head into the countryside outside the city to discover the country’s natural phenomena, historical sites and scenery.

Pass waterfalls and geysers, and learn about the harsh, yet strikingly beautiful, landscape from your guide. Then, hop out of your coach at Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and location of the old Icelandic parliament. Geologically, the site is significant, too. Hear about the ‘rift valley,’ where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, and admire the wild stretching plains that make up the wider Thingvellir National Park.

From the park, continue onward to Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s best-known waterfalls. Stop for photos, and then visit the Geysir hot spring area, home to Strokkur: a large natural spring that burst jets of hot water into the air.

Your afternoon tour then finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Incredible!!! The Golden Circle is a must see in Iceland. You get to see how spectacular the Gullfoss waterfall is and the beautiful landscape of Iceland while riding in a very comfortable bus. Our tour guide was fabulous too! I highly recommend this tour.

This day tour seems like a long day but it goes by really fast. Only 3 stops were made but each one was very interesting the tour guide gave a lot of information about this beautiful country.

This tour was awesome! The geysirs were super cool to watch and Gullfoss is HUGE! Get the Swiss Mocha in the little shop at Gullfoss, it's delicious.

The Golden Circle Express Tour was perfect for us, as we wanted to see Pingvellir National Park, Geysir and Gullfoss Falls. It was also lovely watching the stunning snowy landscape going by on the Tour Bus.

We had plenty of time stopping at each point and there were facilities at Geysir to eat lunch.

Pickup and drop offs were close to my hotel and getting on the coach was well organised.

The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and we had the added bonus of the driver played the trumpet for us when we returned to the coach after one stop.

A highly recommended tour.
