Full description
Sit back, relax, and enjoy being driven between your tour highlights, local farms and restaurants by an experienced and knowledgeable driver guide. This mini bus tour is the perfect way to enjoy a great day out in the Icelandic nature.

This Golden Circle route starts with a visit to the world's first parliament, Thingvellir, and the surrounding landscape of the Thingvellir National Park. From there, make your way to a local greenhouse for a taste of their famous tomato soup and freshly baked bread. After lunch, head to the majestic Gullfoss waterfall and the great Geysir, which, when active, spouts a jet of steaming water 200 feet into the air. Nearby Strokkur is more reliable, erupting every 3-7 minutes with.

After having enjoyed these jewels of Icelandic nature, head to the local farm Efstidalur for a taste of their local products that can vary from season to season. Examples of their taste can be their locally produced Ice cream and Skyr. Now, head to Laugarvatn Fontana Spa, which showcases Iceland's geothermal power in its natural steam baths and open-air hot pools. This is the perfect way to relax and soak in the hot water before enjoying a delicious two course meal at a local restaurant.

Finally, cap off the day with a search for the famed natural phenomenon of Aurora Borealis. Keep a sharp eye on the skies on your way back to Reykjavik and hopefully you just might witness these mysterious northern lights dancing in the night sky.
