For those interested in exploring Iceland, the Golden Circle has undoubtedly popped up in your travel guides and Web research, and for a good reason. The immensely popular touring route takes travelers to some of Iceland’s most significant and beautiful historical and natural landscapes and attractions. Part of the Golden Circle’s appeal is that it is truly for everyone – the drive is surprisingly easy and Iceland’s wild topography is largely unrestricted. With GeoIceland and Iceland Buddy, you can spend 8-9 hours enjoying the Golden Circle via minibus, with a few bonus attractions along the way.
You and a small group will depart from Reykjavík between 8:30 and 9:00 in the morning. Your first stop will be at the birthplace of the Icelandic nation and the site of the oldest parliamentary conference to ever take place on the European continent, Þingvellir. Next, you will enjoy the “Golden Waterfall” itself, – Gullfoss, one of the most beautiful of its kind on the Arctic island. Finally, you will reach the mighty Geysir, whose explosive power is so impressive that the very term “geyser” came from it. Later, you will enjoy the lush, perpetually blossoming “greenhouse village” of Hveragerdi, as well as the majestic waterfall Faxi.
This tour operates in small groups of no more than nineteen guests in order to facilitate excellent personalized service. If you’re interested in this world-famous adventure, make sure you book your spots early!
