Enjoy Iceland´s nature and culture in a full day tour of the Golden Circle from Reykjavik. Feast on scenic stops at Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland´s parliament was founded in 930 A.D. and holds the meeting of the tectonic plates.
Geysir geothermal area is quite stunning where you witness the geyser Strokkur erupt every five minutes and the thundering Gullfoss waterfall tops many lists as a powerful and hypnotizing natural phenomenon. To top it off we take an easy hike to Oxararfoss and Faxi waterfalls. Very family friendly and breathtaking scenery.
Furthermore we visit some really friendly horses in the area, visit Efstidalur dairy farm for some ice cream and visit Icelandic cows and other animals, Laugarvatn geothermal area to learn about rye bread making in the ground and go to Fridheimar tomato greenhouse for a nice lunch.
We put the full emphasis on nature and culture as we tell stories when we ease through the surroundings in a small group. The tour is operated in a minibus and we focus on not exceeding more than 15 people. This way the guide can connect to all passengers and a much nicer vibe is created during the day.
The Golden Circle is Iceland´s most popular route and it is not by any coincidence. The route lies not so far from the capital and easily offers a variety of natural scenery to explore as well as many stories from the settlement to our times.
