Full description
Depart Reykjavik to experience the geothermal landscapes of Iceland's legendary Golden Circle. See boiling water spout from the earth at the great geysers of Geysir and Strokkur in the Haukadalur Valley.

Experience the dramatic cascades of Gullfoss waterfall, fed by the glacial waters of the Hvítá River. Get different views of the impressive water as it plunges into a 32-meter deep crevice. Reconnect with nature in Þingvellir National Park, and discover where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia are pulling apart.

Return to Reykjavík for a few hours at leisure before your evening Northern Lights tour. Head back out after dark to look for the dancing lights in the night sky. Also known as the Aurora Borealis, the natural phenomenon is caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.

Circle was really nice. Northern lights was a horror. Go to same place each time. Guides get out and hang out with eachother. Do not work with people and help them look or give help. Dont try a different place if area is dead. Chance of seeing even on a good night 1% with them. Circle trip was awesome as well as guides and bus

Very interesting trip, knowledgeable guide and reasonable time allowed to see the sights. The bus driver was very skilled. Good value for money it's a must do trip if you are in Iceland. Our northern lights hunting trip was cancelled and rebooked and cancelled again due to bad weather conditions. At least they have not wasted our time in the freezing cold waiting for something which will never be visible. I was disappointed but its mother nature and she plays by her own rules. Money was refunded quickly without any problem. Very good experience. I can only recommend this company

Nice trip

It was very good trip with professional icelandic guide. We could see the most important and best known places on the Golden Circle Way. Unfortunately we couldn't see the Northern Lights because on first day our tour was cancelled and on the second - the Northern Lights show was very short and it was very difficult to see it. Next day we came back home so finally we didn't see the Northern Lights although we paid for the trip.
