The Classic Golden Circle Tour
The best selling day tour in Iceland!
The Golden Circle is the classic day tour in Iceland. For almost as long as tourists have been visiting Iceland, they have sought out this trio of natural attractions. This route has been around for almost as long as tourists have been coming to Iceland. And with good reason: within the span of just eight hours, you can take in not one, not two, but three iconic Icelandic landmarks: Þingvellir National Park, where you can witness the crack in the Earth that separates North America from Europe, and home to the world’s oldest parliament; the Strokkur Geyser, where you can take in the frothing power of geothermal Iceland; and finally, the majestic Gullfoss—Iceland’s premiere colossal waterfall.
This tour in particular also offers new buses that are fully equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets for each guest. The tablets provide you with a continuous stream of relevant information along the journey with a GPS synced Audio Guide, available with a choice of 10 languages. Plus, there are always helpful and charming guides available to answer questions and provide fascinating bits of trivia.
Experiencing the wonders of the Golden Circle is a must for first-timers in Iceland—and always worth repeat visits too.
