Itinerary for The Golden Circle



Passengers get picked up in their accommodation in Reykjavík.


Walk around the national park.  Þingvellir is interesting, both in a geographical and historical sense.  It used to host the oldest continuous parliament in the world, in addition to showing the rift between the North-American and Eurasian plateaus in a very spectacular way.

Lunch in Efsti-Dalur

Efsti-Dalur is a picturesque farm that serves local fresh produce and homemade ice-cream.  Lunch is included in the tour price.

Geysir Geothermal Area

The geothermal area in Haukadalur has lots of hot springs and geysers in all their diversity.  Strokkur churns up 15-20 meters of water (50-65 feet) every 10 minutes or so, which is perfect for the selfie of the year.  Other hot springs include Geysir, which is now mostly inactive, but all other geysers in the world are named after this one and only hot spring.  

Gullfoss Waterfall

Gullfoss is one of the most powerful waterfall in Iceland is simply breathtaking!  Back in the days, some people wanted to dam it up to produce electricity, but now it’s one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations.  How about that?

Dinner at Fjöruborðið, Stokkseyri

Nothing beats dinner on the seashore, with the overview of the magnificent Atlantic Ocean.  Fjöruborðið Restaurant is famous for their love for lobster, and you’ll love it too!

Hunt for the Northern Lights (only in winter)

If weather, brightness and solar gas fluxes permit, we’ll try to hunt down the Aurora Borealis.  This is only possible from September 1st to April 20th.

Return to Reykjavík

After a day packed with wonders we’ll head back to Reykjavík, or to the accommodation of your wishes.

Went on an amazing tour with Clemenz. He was everything you could ever want in a guide- personable, funny, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about his homeland. We have loved our time in Iceland, and before we return (because we absolutely are) we are calling Clemy to plan our fun!
