An express version of the most popular day tour from Reykjavik
6 hours on the road to see the best sights
The Golden Circle Bus Tour
The Golden Circle bus tour takes you on a day trip to see the world-famous Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss, the queen of Icelandic waterfalls, as well as Thingvellir National Park.
Geysir Geothermal Park
The Geysir geothermal area boasts a number of spouting springs, including Strokkur, the most active geyser in Iceland. Strokkur erupts every 6 to 8 minutes and you can observe it from a safe distance that will allow you to take stunning photos and videos of this natural event.
At Gullfoss you are given the opportunity to stand next to the amazing waterfall, watching enormous quantities of water tumble violently into a deep, meandering gorge. On sunny days, the surface of the waterfall seems covered in a glistening glow which is what gives Gullfoss its name, the Golden Waterfall.
Thingvellir National Park
Whether you take the morning or the afternoon tour, you will spend your time encountering a cross-section of Iceland's natural wonders and geological phenomena at Thingvellir National Park, an area of historical and geological significance.
Optional pick up available at extra cost, starts 30 minutes prior to selected departure time.
Please take into account that this is an express version of the Golden Circle, which means you will spend less time at each location. In the summer, you can combine this Golden Circle Tour with our Silfra Snorkeling Tour or our Diving Silfra Tour.
