Highlights
    What to Expect
    After being picked up from your Reykjavik hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 19 people, and head east to explore the popular Golden Circle sightseeing route.

    Your tour begins at Thingvellir National park, where you’ll get the rare opportunity to walk right on the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Learn about the shifting of the plates and their influence on Iceland’s volatile volcanic landscapes from your guide as you admire the views, and hear more about Iceland’s history as you visit the site of the world’s first parliament.

    The photo-worthy landscapes continue, as you stop by the Geysir geothermal area to see geysers including Strokkur and Geysir, the geyser after which all others are named. Stick around long enough to watch the Strokkur geyser erupt (around every 10 minutes), spurting a column of water up to 98 foot (30 meters) in the air.

    Stop for a lunch break near the hot springs (own expense) and then continue to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most visited sights.

    Your final stop of the day is the magnificent Kerid Crater Lake. Gaze out over the dramatic volcanic crater, which measures an impressive 886-foot (270-meters) wide and 180-foot (55-meters) deep, and marvel at the glittering crater lake at its heart.

    Relax on the ride back to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or nearest meeting point.

    We loved our experience on this tour. Our guide, Cristina (a Greek girl in Iceland) was just fabulous! She was very kind, funny and helpful, telling us local stories and other funny facts about the places we visited.
