Golden Circle, Fontana Thermal Baths, Dinner and Northern Lights Day Trip from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Get picked up in a minibus from your Reykjavík hotel. Pickups happen just before noon.

    Start off by making a stop at Fridheimar Farm (Friðheimar) to try their loved tomato soup and freshly baked bread. Then, it’s off to the Golden Circle where you’ll want to have your camera ready to take some photos.

    Visit the Strokkur geyser, and see it spout hot water up 49 to 98 feet (15 to 30 meters). Then, admire the Gullfoss waterfall, which is a big traveler’s attraction of Iceland. The waterfall has an almost stairway-like cascade that flows into the Hvítá River.

    Afterward, get back in your minivan until you reach Efstidalur (Efsti-Dalur I). Sample a few of the farm’s products, such as skyr (a kind of thick-set yogurt) and ice cream. 

    Head on over to the Fontana Baths (Laugarvatn Fontana), and relax in the hot waters of the geothermal spa before dinnertime.

    Your 2-course dinner will be served at Lindin, a local restaurant. Soon after you've finished eating, your hunt for the Northern Lights begins as everyone on your tour keeps their eyes peeled on the ride back to the hotels.

    We really enjoyed Tinna as our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. We used three different touring companies and this one was the best. I’m vegetarian and the meals provided were amazing, although if you are vegan, options are a little more

    Hi Sharlene M, Thanks for reviewing Icelandic Mountain Guides. The Golden Circle tour with Fontana Spa and Northern Lights is one of our favourite tours we offer. Tinna will be very pleased to hear how much you enjoyed her company on the tour, and even with the powercut, it just adds another fun thing to make the trip unforgettable. We hope that Iceland was just as amazing as the time you spent with Tinna, and hopefully we will see you soon :) Best Regards Scott

    We booked the Golden Circle/Magical Nights tour and I have to admit I was very anxious about booking a 10-12 hour tour. It seemed like a very long time but in reality I think our tour lasted close to 12-13 hours and we enjoyed every minute. The mini-transport easily and
