With limited time in Iceland? No worries. We offer a package tour that covers many interesting sights on this two days tour Golden Circle and South Coast in Iceland.
The first stop is Þingvellir National Park. It is not only famous for its beauty, also is widely known for being the first parliament in the world, which was founded by the locals in the 10th century. Since it is the private golden circle tour, it is more flexible to see the sights, but having in mind that there are also so many other beautiful pleases as the tour continues.
Next stop is the Haukadalur geothermal area, where you will find Strokkur Geysir hot spring. It is the most active geyser in Iceland that shoots hot water as high as 20-30 meter (65-98ft) and it happens approx. every 5-10 minutes. Besides it, you will also find a small cute geyser, which we call “Litli Geysir” its water is about 100°C (212°F), so don’t try to touch it, it could burn you.
To cool down, we continue the drive to Gullfoss waterfall, the second largest waterfall in Iceland. In the summer, if you stand close enough to the falls, you can even feel fresh mist touching your face. But, don’t get too close to the cliff, it’s dangerous.
At this point, we are done with three main attractions of the famous Golden Circle. However, our tour is not finished yet, we will be heading to the south to visit Fridheimar tomato cultivation farm, where you get a chance to taste fresh tomatoes or even try tomato-based dishes in the cozy greenhouse. All their products are locally grown. If we have time, we can try their lunch or brunch here.
After the lunch break, we keep moving with our tour and we have a special stop at the Secret Lagoon, where you have a chance to have a soak in the beautiful natural hot spring. We are going to stay here for about an hour so you can experience it.
Now, we are about to finish this tour, our last stop will be the crater Kerid crater. It’s said this volcano has been here for thousands of years ago. It was created by an explosive eruption, and it made up the formation that we are looking at today. It looks like a mirror facing the sky, because of that the water looks different every day.
The private golden circle Iceland tour is very flexible. Our driver is able to swap the itinerary and make sure that you will see all the sights and take a lunch break at your requested time and place. In general, the tour will take about 8 hours. Note, if you spend more than the discussed hours, we will need to collect an extra fee for it.

The South Coast tour Iceland will reveal many secret spaces and show both the green and the icy side of Iceland. On this tour, you get to see the magical Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you will be able to literally walk behind it without getting completely wet.

After enjoying these two amazing waterfalls, we will be heading to see another beauty. The Skogarfoss waterfall, which is 60m (197 ft) high. Even from the distance, we will still feel the power of it.
