Departure Time

9:00 AM
Start the day with pickup at your hotel in downtown Reykjavík, then travel to Thingvellir National Park, a highlight of Iceland’s Golden Circle, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore a rift valley between two diverging tectonic plates, and visit Althing, the first national parliament of Iceland, and one of the oldest operating parliaments in the world. You’ll also have time to see the Silfra Fissure and Almannagjá Rift as well as Faxi warerfall before continuing to the Geysir Hot Springs.

Take in the volcanic power of the landscape first hand, in a geothermal field of bubbling hot springs and geysers, and watch the spouting Strokkur explode 100 feet (30 meters) into the air.

Your third destination on the Golden Circle is Gullfoss Waterfall, where the Hvíta River plunges in two dramatic steps, falling 36 feet (11 meters), then 69 feet (21 meters), and sending up a powerful mist. Make the final stop of the day at Secret Lagoon Hot Springs, where you’ll have time to relax in the mineral-rich water of the naturally hot pool before returning to Reykjavík. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Very hands off, but if you have questions ask! The tour guides are very informative and full of answers. The day was a leisurly fun water day with small hiking and sufficient time at each stop to get a good glimpse of what each area has to offer. The hos spring will leave you feeling very tired, but your body will feel so good afterwards! Highly recommend!

The tour guide was very informative of anything about Iceland you asked. The small group wasn’t as small as I expected. We were crammed in the little bus.

Off with Alf

Alf was our driver and guide. He was funny and wears a peach coloured hat. Alf is very passionate about Iceland and is good at conveying that through his excitement about the places you visit. The sites themselves are great and a must see. Last stop at secret lagoon was magic way to relax. Well done everyone, especially Alf.

What an experience

This tour was paced perfectly, with the natural attractions spaced throughout the day, meaning you were never in the minibus for too long. The highlight had to be the Secret Lagoon. More rustic than it's commercial neighbor, the Blue Lagoon, it felt more authentic & we benefitted by having less than a dozen people in the pool at any time, amazing experience to be swimming in the snow.

Nice Places But You're On your Own

Van and driver were on time. But once we were moving we heard little from our driver/guide. Very uncommunicative and sort of mumbly. First stop - he pointed us in the direction of a waterfall and said he'd meet us at the end of the trail with the van. So there he was after we walked through the rift valley but never asked if we found the waterfall, which we didn't. Lunch at the geyser was fine. Next the Gulfoss Waterfall - very nice. As was the Secret Lagoon, where suits & towels were rentable. More than enough soaking time. Only downer was a very lackluster guide but a good, safe driver.

Good Route

Tour content itself was pretty and well planned. Only negative point is the short time at strokkur, as this is also supposed to be lunch stop. We could only look at the strokkur quickly and no walk around the rest of tje area. To stop at the lagune in the end is perfect. However I did not learn anything during the tour. The "guide" was a nice person but his monotone and silent voice made most people in the bus fall asleep. Most things I could not understand and at some point i gave up. Apparently he was a teacher before. As mentioned the guide is a nice person but not quite good. Also our tour was delayed by 45 min due to other guests not showing up. As I know other companies only wait 10 min max 15 if guests do not show. Or at least the guide should have accted faster. 3 points only for the beauty of iceland, not the tour itself.

This all day tour took us to several beautiful and/or historic places. We had ample time for a short visit at all locations. Our guide was not very personable. It certainly felt like he was doing a job because he had to not because he enjoyed it or his clients.

Loved our guide!

Our guide was so wonderful. She clearly loves her country and that made the trip all that much more special. She told us stories and shared a story about the old gods on the way back. We also got a top notch suggestion for dinner. We ate at the Fish Company. Do it!
