You’ll visit the main highlights, including Þingvellir National Park, Geyser Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss waterfall. Stop at a cattle farm for some delicious ice cream and visit a tomato cultivation center to taste freshly prepared dishes made with tomatoes. Last but not least, take a stroll around a 5000-year-old volcanic crater. Come and join us now.
The first stop of the day is Þingvellir National Park, where you will have a chance to see Thingvellir lake, the second biggest in Iceland, and walk in a rift where North American and Euro-Asian tectonic plates meet.
It is also known as the site of Althing, the first parliament in the world that was established year 930 AD. That’s actually where the name of the park Þingvellir (e. Fields of the parliament) originates from. If you are not in any rush our guide will walk with you over to the Öxarárfoss Waterfall which falls into the rift and merges with Thingvellir lake.
This is a quick but interesting stop to explore how traditional, geothermal steamed bread is made. A tasting activity is not included in the tour price. But can be arranged on request.
The next stop is Efstidalur farm where we will see Icelandic cattle and locally made yummy ice cream. This farm has been run by the same family since 1750. If you like ice cream, it is on us. Choose whatever flavor you want 🙂
Within 10 minutes ride, we will reach Haukdalur/ Geysir geothermal area. Here we will explore some of the most geothermally active areas in Iceland. At the park, you will find the most active geyser in Iceland “Strokkur” which shoots hot water as high as 20-30 meters (65-98ft), at approximately 5-10 minutes intervals. Then we have Litli Geysir (“the small one”) which looks like a boiling pot and around 20 other dormant ones that can wake up at any time. Watch out for getting too close to it, its water temperature is about 100°C (212°F).
We continue with of journey to Gullfoss waterfall, the second-largest waterfall in Iceland. It is only 5min. walking from the parking lot to the viewpoint of the waterfall.
In the summertime, for those who are fine with hiking, we can walk with you all the way to the side of the waterfall where you will have an opportunity to feel the vibration and the fresh breeze from the waterfall cascades.
At this point, we have covered all three main attractions of the famous Golden Circle route. But it is not over yet, we like to show you more.
Now we will start driving south to visit Fridheimar tomato cultivation farm, where you get a chance to taste various meals and desserts made with tomato as the main ingredient. Some people say that this place offers the best Bloody Mary cocktail in the world. We will only make a short stop there to see the interior of the greenhouse (yes, you can see how things are grown there), and perhaps fancy yourself with a drink or soup from the bar. Please inform us if you’d like to have a proper lunch stop there, we might need to adjust the itinerary a bit to fit it into your schedule.
And last but not least, we stop at Kerid to see a beautiful view of this beautiful crater, which is approx. 5000 years old.
Our private tour is fully customizable to your needs. Our driver can adjust the itinerary and take a lunch break at your requested time and place. Book now and experience the Golden Circle like never before.
The tour is approx. 8 hours.
We usually make a lunch stop at Geysir Geothermal Area or Gullfoss Waterfall. Both of the locations offer canteen-style, fast food, and snack options. Lunch stop at Fridheimar Tomato Farm is only made if requested beforehand. It is mainly because they have limited seating and require table reservations. Food or drinks are not included in the tour price.
