ABOUT THE TOUR

The Golden Circle is the most iconic tourist route in Iceland. Walk down into the rift valley where the American and Eurasian continental plates are literally pulling apart at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the steaming geothermal hot springs where the ground trembles and hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser. Last but not least, you will experience the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s iconic waterfalls.

After seeing the must-see attractions on the Golden Circle, we’ll kick things up a notch and get behind the wheel of an ATV (Quad bike) for an unforgettable ride along a Black Sand Beach.

MORE INFORMATION

Reykjavík Terminal
• Tours depart from the Reykjavik Terminal located at Skógarhlíð 10. Please be sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure along with a printed or digital copy of your ticket/voucher.
• If you have booked a hotel pickup with Smartbus™, please be at your chosen pickup location 30 minutes before the departure of the tour. Look for the Green Smartbus™ which will be outside your accommodation at within the 30 minutes of pickup.

Þingvellir National Park
Located on the northern shores of Þingvallavatn (Iceland’s largest lake), Þingvellir (anglicized as ‘thingvellir’) is the national pride of Iceland and our first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. For this reason, Þingvellir has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is, therefore, a protected national park due to its unique geology and natural features. From the viewing area, the Almannagjá canyon between two tectonic plates can be seen, a visual representation of continental drift.

As the first stop along the tour, you will have an opportunity to walk through the park and use the restroom if needed.

Geysir Hot Springs
A favourite stop along the Golden Circle is the highly active Geysir Hot Spring Area with boiling mud pits and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 meters (100 ft) into the air every few minutes. The area became active more than 1000 years ago and comprises more than a dozen hot spring holes. Although one can only see steam emerging from the surface of Geysir these days, its name was adopted to represent spouting hot springs all over the world.

Along the tour, the newly opened Geysir Center offers guests and travellers a chance to use the restroom and to catch some refreshments as well as lunch.

Gullfoss Waterfall
As one of the most popular attractions in all of Iceland, Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the canyon of Hvítá river in the southwest of the country. The beautiful Hvítá river rushes southward in three steps into a narrow canyon with a breathtaking roar and grandeur. Furthermore, on clear days the magnificent Langjökull glacier, Iceland’s second-largest glacier, can be seen in the distance.

Guests and Travelers may use the restroom and purchase food and refreshments at this location as well.

ATV Tour
Shoot across a black volcanic beach of Iceland’s South Coast, on an ATV adventure fit for all true lovers of excitement and nature. Join us on this one hour tour, where you will drive towards and on the black beach by Þorlákshöfn, to enjoy the extent of the Atlantic Ocean coastline.
