Duration: 8 Hours. Season: 7 days a week all Year round.
On the Golden Circle tour you can walk around the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.

One of the Golden Circles many highlights is the Gullfoss waterfall, the queen of Iceland's waterfalls. Finally, but no less spectacular is a visit to the Thingvellir National Park.

This is the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates. Lunch and refreshments not included.

Included: Bus fare, guidance in English every day,and entrance to Geysir Museum
Pick up at hotels and guesthouses 30 minutes prior to departure. Drop off after day tours may sometimes not be right in front of your hotel/guesthouse due to narrow streets and actual coach size used during the tour. 0900 to 1700    7 days a week forward Gullfoss ( Golden Waterfall ) is the turning point. But before reaching Gullfoss you will pass Pingvellir National Park on road 36, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Lake Laugarvatn Fontana with its geothermal pool and steam baths at Laugarvatn Fontana. The next stop is the great geyser Strokkur, just wait 15 monutes to see it erupt. There is a cafe restaurant at Geysir.
A tourist trap?  No this is nature at its best, the real thing. After admiring Gullfoss where there is also a cafe restaurant take a different route back passing the greenhouse areas of Laugaras and Reykholt and Skalholt Cathedral before reaching the volcanic crater lake Kerid, The last stop on the list is the greenhouse town of Hveragerdi ( Hot Springs ) where Europe's only banana plantation is located. On the way back to Reykjavik you cross the lava fields of Hellisheidi mountain pass. A great way to see new land in the making. And look in the rear view mirror as in the far distance you'll see the volcano Eyjafjallajokull.
Bon voyage.
