Tour Description

The Grand Golden Circle is a compact tour that takes you to a series of remarkable and diverse sites in the Southwest of Iceland in a span of only eight hours. If you are only doing one tour in Iceland, this is the one.

In the Geysir geothermal area we get the chance to observe the boiling hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes.

The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls, is only a 7 minutes’ drive from Geysir – located in the glacial river Hvítá. Its elegant and majestic form is like no other, where the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32 meters deep canyon.

Þingvellir National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located on the intersection of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, but also a place charged with history, as the site of the national parliament since 930. Þingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004.

Additionally, the tour includes visits to the volcanic crater lake Kerið, and the waterfall Faxi.

    This Golden circle tour was everything I had hoped for and more. It included the typical stops plus a few others as well!
    I was looking for a Golden circle tour on a budget, this was the best one I found when comparing price and places it went to. The guide was truly a professional, funny and very smart.

    If you are looking for a cheap but good Golden circle bus tour, this is definitely they way to go!

  3. Grand Golden Circle Tour- Incredible!

    Not one to write reviews often but this experience needed telling! The highlight of our trip, made by our fabulous tour guide Ragnar. We went on a number of day trips while on our stay in Iceland and felt a tour guide was missing to explain some of the beautiful locations we passed on our way to places. Ragnar was everything we wanted, we were treated to the history, politics, Icelandic traditions as well as all the information we needed and very technical too about the sites we were visiting. There were around six stops with sufficient time at each, didn’t feel rushed at all and often we were back before the guide as it was so bitterly cold. Plenty of rest breaks for toilets and refreshments. Would definitely recommend, not one of the well known companies but absolutely the best service we received on our trip and great value for money!

  4. Good golden circle tour

    The weather was really bad the day I went, but still the tour was pretty great! Driver was on time to pick me up at my hotel. I did not spend much time at each location because of the weather. I will go again when i visit Iceland next time. But overall it was a good tour just wish the weather was better.

  5. Great value for money

  10. Wonderful Tours in Iceland - Bustravel

    I went to Iceland for leisure with my kid in this summer. I booked BUSTRAVEL both Grand Golden Circle tour and Glacier Lagoon and South Coast tour on 10 & 11 August with Bustravel. These two tours were guided by Hermann Valsson who was a wonderful tourist guide. And he was so knowledgeable about Iceland and had a great sense of humour.

    And I found he got enthusiasm into his job. People normal works about 8-10 hours per day but Hermann picked us at 7:15a.m. and sent us back one by one at almost 10~11p.m.

    Wow! He worked for almost 15-16 hours during the Glacier Lagoon tour. If I were him, I must be too tired to talk or drive at the end of the tour. I found he was still full of vim and vigor. I can say he is very professional and he is happy to respect work.

    We enjoyed the tours and had an excellent time. Thank You so much, Hermann for answering many questions we asked as well!

    All the best for Hermann’s and Bustravel’s future.
