Don´t miss this ultimate Icelandic day tour

The Golden Circle day tour is one of the most popular trips in Iceland, as it covers the most iconic and diverse attractions that the land of fire and ice has to offer. The Golden Circle in Iceland refers to the three primary sights along a 300 kilometer (186.4 miles) route, with many other delightful, smaller-scale attractions scattered in between.

On our day tour, we will visit all of the main sights, and if time allows, we will make a few extra stops along the way, so you can see even more of Iceland.

First, we’ll visit Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that serves as a living testament to Iceland’s rich history and geological significance. Here, you’ll stroll through the very rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates drift apart, a mesmerizing sight that highlights the dynamic forces shaping our planet.

Next, prepare to be awestruck by the mesmerizing display of nature’s power at Geysir Geothermal Area in Haukadalur. Marvel at the explosive eruptions of Strokkur, a geyser that shoots scalding hot water high into the air with impressive regularity, creating an otherworldly spectacle against Iceland’s rugged terrain.

Continuing our journey, we’ll encounter the golden cascade of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls. Feel the mist on your skin as you stand in awe of this roaring testament to the raw beauty of nature, where glacial meltwaters plunge dramatically into a deep canyon, leaving visitors spellbound by its sheer grandeur.

And last but certainly not least, we’ll make a stop at the breathtaking Kerið Volcanic Crater Lake. Immerse yourself in the ethereal beauty of this volcanic crater, filled with stunning turquoise waters that contrast against the rugged volcanic rock formations. Whether you’re admiring the colors of the lake or exploring its depths, Kerið is a place you’ll always remember.

Get ready for a day full of excitement as we explore these amazing natural sights in Iceland’s Golden Circle!
