If you want to make the most out of your short stop here in Iceland, this 3-day tour is ideal for you. You will see some of Iceland’s top attractions including Gullfoss waterfall, Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal hot springs and, if lucky, the magical Northern Lights!
Once you arrive in Iceland, you can either start with a relaxing bath in the Blue Lagoon or go straight to your accommodation in Reykjavík, depending on the time of arrival. In the afternoon/evening, you can use your free time to explore the capital of Iceland, Reykjavík.
You will be picked up from your accommodation or nearest bus stop at 08:30, and head out for your Golden Circle tour. The following sights will be visited during this tour:
Þingvellir National Park
The place where the two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plate, are moving away from each other. Few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Þingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Þingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. At Þingvellir Icelanders founded their parliament in 930 a.d. where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer. The name “Thingvellir” translates to “Parliament Plains”.
The melting water from Iceland´s second biggest glacier, Langjökull, falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic “Golden Falls”. On a sunny day, you can see the glacier Langjökull in the distance and enjoy a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall, an Instagram blockbuster waiting to happen!
The Geysir geothermal area hosts hundreds of colorful hot springs and two geysers, erupting hot springs. One is called “Geysir” and name giving for all the geysers in the world. Today, however, it erupts very seldom. The other geyser is called “Strokkur” and erupts every 5 minutes up to 40 meters.
Traditional Dairy Farm
Efstidalur farm owned by the same family since 1850. This Icelandic family-run business sticks to traditional Icelandic farming culture and focuses on cows and cattle breeding. You will be able to enjoy their tasty farm-to-table dairy products, see the stunning mountain view and pet the friendly animals. You will be invited to taste the ice cream yourself and meanwhile watch the animals relaxing in the stable.
Faxi waterfall is small, yet stunning waterfall. It is situated in the Tungufljót river, a famous salmon river. Alongside the river, there is a salmon staircase built to extend the salmon areas of the river. During the summer months, fishermen are often seen trying their luck at the waterfall and salmon seen jumping up the staircase.
Kerið volcanic crater
A stunning volcanic crater with a lake in the middle which formed in an eruption 3,000 years ago. Some believe that it was formed in a vast explosion. The more likely theory is that the volcanic cone collapsed into its own magma chamber after the eruption finished. Kerið is the perfect location to learn more about Icelandic geological history and observe a mind-blowing natural wonder.
Once you get back to Reykjavík, you will have about 2,5 hours before the pick-up starts for your Northern Lights tour. Enjoy your northern lights hunt in complete comfort in a small group with a relaxed pace and expert guide who will reveal all there is to know about the beautiful phenomenon that dances across the Icelandic winter sky.
If you arrived late on day 1, you can use this last day for a relaxing morning at the Blue Lagoon before heading back to the airport.
Otherwise, you will get picked up at your accommodation for your airport transportation.
