Golden Circle and South Coast – Private Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Depart your Reykjavik hotel by 4x4 Jeep, and set out on your full-day trip to Iceland’s Golden Circle and south coast. As you travel, hear about the country’s history and geology from your knowledgeable guide, and gaze out at the lunar-like lava fields and volcanic peaks.

    Enter the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, and skirt the shores of Lake Thingvallavatn, one of Iceland’s largest natural lakes. Stop at Althing, where the country’s first parliament gathered in 930 AD, and visit the continental rift, where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America meet above ground.

    Walk between the two tectonic ridges, and for luck, toss a coin into the waters at Silfra, a crystal-clear, fissure pool between the plates. Visit the Geysir geothermal field, home to the Strokkur geyser, and behold the bubbling pools and wait five to 10 minutes to watch one of Strokkur’s regular eruptions, sending a high plume of hot water into the air.

    Continue to see the double-tier waterfall at Gullfoss, whose name translates as Golden Waterfall.

    Then, enjoy a tour of Iceland’s epic south coast and marvel at Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss—two of Iceland’s most breathtaking waterfalls.

    Finally, journey along the south coast’s cliffs and beaches, pausing for photos of its natural wonders. View the black sand bay at Reynisfjara to marvel at its basalt cliffs and the stunning natural rock bridge at Dyrholaey.

    Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Reykjavik.

    A group of 10 of us from our cruise ship spent the day with Sergei visiting the Snaefellsness Peninsula. Sergei is an outstanding guide (and driver) and we enjoyed amazing scenery, including waterfalls, volcanic landscapes, beautiful beaches and towering mountains. Absolutely

    Response from Sergei S, Owner at Golden Circle and South Coast – Private Day Tour from Reykjavik
    Responded 15 Aug 2019
    We are very sorry for the tour cancellation, which happened due to a technical breakdown of the vehicle. The tour was canceled more than a day before its start, the refund was also made. We hope you had the opportunity to reorder the Golden Circle tour from another operator. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the tour.

    Sergei is the best! We picked this tour based on TripAdvisor reviews and we hit the jackpot. We had a very full day with Sergei visiting sites along the Golden Circle and South Coast. Our family of four was extremely comfortable in his van and we saw and learned so much. Sergei
