    See the best of southwest Iceland on an 8-hour Golden Circle tour from Reykjavik. Visit the spectacular Geysir area, and go to the cascades of Gullfoss Waterfall. Discover where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet in Þingvellir National Park. Travel to the geothermal area of Geysir.

    This tour was well worth the money, the guide “God” was amazing and really made this tour what it is, from the humour to the very cool facts about Icelandic history. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

  • From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    2. From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Glacier Snowmobiling

    Board the bus at the BSI Bus Terminal and drive off to experience the different geothermal landscapes of Iceland's legendary Golden Circle. Stop at Þingvellir National Park, known for its exceptional beauty and historical importance as the site of the world's first parliaments. Continue into the hot springs area of Geysir, before driving to Langjökull to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure activity! Take control of a snowmobile – or travel as a passenger – to explore the vast white ice cap of Langjökull for an hour. Make your way back to Reykjavík via the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and gaze in wonder as the Hvítá River thunders into a 32-meter deep canyon.

    It was a great trip but I think the time traveling should be explained in the brief as this is quite a lot of the time out....also the actual time you get on the snowmobile was very misleading. We had half that time and the experience was very disappointing. It should explain that you literally go up and around in a circle following everyone which was very un impressive and not worthy at all of the cost of this. Next time I would probably not bother doing the snow mobiling as I felt it wasn’t a true experience of what it was Described as.

    This wetsuit snorkeling tour in Silfra fissure located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Thingvellir National Park is an out of this world adventure and a hidden natural wonder, where the 100 meter underwater visibility and bright colors make the experience almost unrealistic.

  • From Reykjavík: Golden Circle with Snorkel in Silfra

    7. From Reykjavík: Golden Circle with Snorkel in Silfra

    Experience the different geothermal landscapes of Iceland's legendary Golden Circle on a small group tour from Reykjavik. Listen to Icelandic music as you travel by minibus to Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart. Gaze in awe as you get a clear view of this massive geological activity. Watch the water melt from Iceland's second biggest glacier as you make your way to Gullfoss Waterfall. Marvel as hot spring water erupts from the earth in the geothermal area of Geysir. Then, snorkel in the extraordinary Silfra rift, considered one of the top dive sites in the world. Glide between tectonic plates floating on pure, filtered glacial meltwater.

    We had two guides, Hallur and Ronan. It was because of them that this trip was so enjoyable! The waterfall was majestic and extremely windy. The geysir was tiny but still worth a visit. Then Hallur brought us for some delicious ice cream. It shocks the body to enjoy ice in the cold but the texture was just too good to put down the ice cream. Then, we went snorkelling with Ronan. Right off the bat, he was friendly and most kind. He got to know each one of us personally. He was a diver in the navy so you can rest assured that you're in safe hands! Ronan made the snorkelling experience like a party. We had so much fun. The waters were clear and mesmerizing. And the hot chocolate that comes after was the best thing ever. I was nervous about the cold before, but the cold didn't cross my mind at all while snorkelling. It was an awesome experience. Ronan was amazing too, as he always went out if his way to help us. Amazing trip overall! Highly recommended! The guides should get a raise too ;P

  • From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Northern Lights Combo

    8. From Reykjavik: Golden Circle and Northern Lights Combo

    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.

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

What people are saying about Reykjavik

Our guide BG was amazing. You're lucky if you get him! He was full of cheeky, witty jokes, and he is extremely knowledgeable and insightful. To be honest, I was feeling under the weather. Everyone else in the trip was pretty hyped about everything and so BG was keeping up with their energy. But when he spoke to me, he matched my energy, and treated me kindly with respect. What a great guy! The trip itself was amazing too. We got very wet at the locations, from waterfalls to the black beach. So be prepared for that! It was truly awesome and inspiring. Highly recommend!

This tour was well worth the money, the guide “God” was amazing and really made this tour what it is, from the humour to the very cool facts about Icelandic history. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
