Golden Circle Express

Express version of the The Golden Circle covering the main sights. Tour buses depart at 10 AM.


The Golden circle is the route through south of Iceland that covers three of the most famous attractions.

Our first stop is in Þingvellir National Park, which is the founding place of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the huge tectonic plates of America and Eurasia drift a part and the rift valley is there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland’s biggest lake.

We then visit the Geysir geothermal hot springs, one of Iceland’s most famous natural attractions where hot water shoots out of the ground every 8 minutes or so.

The last stop is the Gullfoss Waterfall, where you can walk down quite close to the edge of the waterfall. The powerful glacial river flows down 32 meters into a narrow canyon with a tremendous roar.

Simply put, if you only do one tour in Iceland, then this should be the one!

Ella G (February 2017)

Fantastic tour! Very well organized, efficient, covers main points of interest (Golden Circle) and allows to see the best of Iceland without much planning on your own. Our tour-guide Herman took care of everything, even added couple extra stops and made sure to answer any questions. The hotel pick up was on time and the operator was very responsive when booking online. One comment: Golden Waterfall requires longer stop (45') and the Gaiser stop could be shorter (1'15). Thank you!

I took the Golden Circle Express Tour from Reykjavik. Everything about this tour was phenomenal. I cannot say enough good things about our driver, tour director, and the beautiful locations that we visited. Absolutely stunning scenery in conjunction with amazing service and interesting information narrated by the director made it a fabulous trip. The driver and tour director even pulled to the side of the road so some other passengers and I could pet Icelandic horses. I would book again with this company in a heartbeat!
