Departure Time

4:00 PM
Meet your guide at your Reykjavik hotel in the late afternoon, and head off by private, air-conditioned vehicle on your 8-hour tour.

On route, admire Iceland’s volcanic landscapes and hear about the Midnight Sun — the times in high summer when the sun never sets. In June, July and August, the nights are bathed in a half-light that fits with the country's ancient myths and ethereal scenery.

At these times, the Golden Circle is almost deserted, making the evenings perfect for avoiding the crowds, and this tour a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As you travel, talk to your guide about tailoring your itinerary. Your tour is private, so you can adjust the time at different sights as you wish.

Stop at the Kerið caldera, a 3,000-year-old caldera of red volcanic rock coated in colorful mosses and half-filled with a shallow lake. Admire the eerie beauty of the crater in the atmospheric, soft light and walk inside its walls to snap photos.

Next, head for the gorgeous Secret Lagoon, a semi-natural hot spring pool, where you’re free to enjoy a hot soak if you choose. Afterward, move on to small-but-impressive Faxi waterfall, and then visit the spectacular Gullfoss falls, made even more stunning by the dusky light. Behold the roaring waters of the huge double falls and then continue to the Geysir geothermal area.

Walk around the bubbling pools and steam vents, and watch the Strokker geyser, famous for spouting a huge plume of water high into the air every eight minutes or so.

Continue to the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America stand above the ground. Walk along the craggy rift and then visit the site of the Althing, the world’s first ever parliament, held here by Vikings from back in the 9th century.

Your tour then concludes with a hotel drop-off.
