Let’s join us on a day tour, the Golden Circle Tour with Blue Lagoon experience. This combo tour is ideal for travelers to do two activities in one day. The Golden Circle Day tour will show you the main highlights of Iceland, the National Park Þingvellir, Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall, and Kerid Crater. At the end of this combo tour, you will be taken to the Blue Lagoon, where you will have two hours to enjoy and relax. After this experience, you will be taken to the hotel.
The tour will start with a short drive from the city to Thingvellir National Park. In this dramatic rift valley, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from each other along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge you can stand on two continents simultaneously. Thingvellir was also Iceland’s first parliament. For hundreds of years, the Vikings of Iceland came here each summer for festivals and settled their disputes. The “Law Rock” and the “drowning pool” saw rough justice delivered for thieves and murderers.
As we head deeper into the highland of Iceland, the next stop is Geysir, the most impressive sight in the Haukadalur “hot spring” area. Geysir is the Icelandic for “gush” and gave its name to all spouting hot springs. The actual Geysir doesn’t erupt very much now. But there is another gusher called Strokkur just a few meters away, which sends boiling fountains of water high into the sky every few minutes. Make sure where you stand while you wait to see the show, or you might get a soaking. Tips, don’t stand in the direction of the wind. One of the unique things is the strong smell of sulfur, which you will probably feel from a far distance.
Gullfoss waterfall is undoubtedly one of the most stunning and majestic sights in Iceland. It won‘t show you the soft and gentle side of Iceland, this is the really wild and rugged side of Icelandic nature. In clear visibility, you will even get a glimpse of Langjökull glacier, its white brilliance meeting the sky high on the horizon. Listening to the thunder of wild water and feeling the airborne droplets of moisture in the air, you will know you are in the presence of a great waterfall the moment you leave the car park. Photogenic, glorious, turbulent, and mesmeric in any season of the year, Gullfoss is all of these and far more. For me, these falls are at their loveliest when the giant boulders they drop over are cloaked in a patina of shimmering ice, but always take care in slippery conditions. There can be ice within the waterfall but it never freezes. It is also very special in the bright Arctic summer light.
After the Gullfoss stop, you will be moving on to the multi-colored crater at Kerid crater. Only a few thousand years old, the volcanic rocks are still rich in iron deposits, turning the caldera a vivid crimson color. There’s also an azure lake and blankets of soft green mosses too. That makes Kerid one of the brightest spots you’ll see anywhere in the country.
After all the sightseeing stops, it is now time for you to get prepared for the most relaxing part of your day! You will spend the rest of your day relaxing in the iconic naturally-heated water and enjoying the fantastic facilities there in the world-famous Blue Lagoon.
