What to Expect
Following a pickup at your centrally located Reykjavik hotel, take a seat aboard your coach and head out of the city on Iceland’s famous Golden Circle route. During your hop-on hop-off tour, take in the Golden Circle’s most famous natural wonders and enjoy the freedom to decide where to stop—and for how long. With multiple departures each day from every stop along the route, you can relax and enjoy the best of the Icelandic scenery. Follow the footsteps of ancient Viking tribes in the Thingvellir National Park, and listen as your guide sheds light on the world’s oldest still-functioning parliament. Discover top natural attractions including the famous Strokkur geyser and admire panoramic views over the Icelandic wilderness. Stop at the mighty Gullfoss waterfall—widely considered the Golden Circle’s most impressive feature—and capture the mighty torrent on camera. Then, when you’re ready, return in comfort to your starting point in Reykjavik.

We were notified the day before our tour that it was cancelled due to buses being out of service. While disappointed, we were given the option to take a different tour ( which we did) and we're promptly credited for the difference in price.

Great experience with Sikki son of Olaf and Trusty son of I don't remember. I was there with an elderly friend (80+ years) and it was absolutely incredible. Despite the bus being very full it was a very enjoyable tour!! I would definitely recommend it.
