From towering waterfalls to bubbling geysers, some of Iceland’s most dramatic landmarks are clustered around the Golden Circle. This full-day, guided coach tour takes in the highlights, including Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Strokkur Waterspout. Let someone else navigate and drive, so you can relax and enjoy the spectacular views as a guide shares the fascinating stories behind the scenery. Tour includes convenient pickup and drop-off from Reykjavik.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your centrally located Reykjavik hotel, or at the cruise port, and then leave the city behind as you head into Iceland’s rugged, mountainous interior.

The first stop on the Golden Circle route is Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland held its first parliamentary assembly. Hear guide commentary about the site as you admire the pristine beauty, and peer into the Thingvellir Rift, two tectonic plates joined by a narrow valley.

Next, head to Gullfoss Waterfall, double-tiered cascades that send up spectacular mist and occasional rainbows.

Continue along the Golden Circle to an area simmering with volcanic activity, hot springs, pools, and steam vents. Keep your camera ready at Strokkur, a powerful waterspout that erupts 98 feet (30 meters) in the air. This Golden Circle tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Great trip with Grayline

We joined the tour in August. The tour is well organized. The coach is comfortable. We had enough time at each stop. The tour guide is very amazing. He was knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. Would totally recommend!

Very Unhappy and Disappointing Experience!

Beyond our control, a late flight into Iceland, we did not arrive at our hotel until 5:00 am Pick up was at 10:00am but we did not check the fine print that stated we had to be out in front of the hotel at 9:30...More

Thank you Karca for writing your review. It is truly unfortunate that you missed your tour with us. By the timing you have listed I cannot tell what tour you are referring to as we do not have any tour departing at 11:30 or 12:00...More
