On the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon Tour you will experience a series of remarkable and diverse sights in the Southwest of Iceland.
Start the day with a leisurely swim in the Secret Lagoon, one of the oldest natural geothermal pools in Iceland, nestled amongst bubbling hot springs and a small erupting geyser. Steam rises from the surrounding geothermal area as you relax in the 38-40*C warm mineral-rich water surrounded by a geothermal area.
Then we embark upon the quintessential Icelandic tour to the Geysir geothermal area in the Haukadalur valley, where the Strokkur fountain geyser spouts water high into the air every few minutes, before visiting the majestic “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss, considered by many to be Iceland’s most beautiful waterfall.
Then onward to the historic geological wonder Þingvellir National Park, which is not only the seat of the world’s oldest still-functioning parliament (where the Icelandic Alþingi first convened in 930 AD) but is considered the best place on earth to view the geologic meeting point of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, pulling apart year by year.
The duration of the tour is 9 hours.
This experience will see you travel along the stunning shores of the North Atlantic sea . From Reykjavik through the village of Vik towards Iceland's largest glacier called Vatnajökull.
You will have plenty of time to explore and witness to the stunning visuals of the south coast and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
We then begin our long voyage along the southern coast of Iceland to the amazing glacier lagoon where large icebergs are breaking off the mighty Vatnajökull glacier, the sight of these floating towards the ocean is truly a wonder. At the lagoon there will be options to enjoy the view from the icy shore, journey out onto the water on a boat (May to November), learn more about the area at the visitor centre or head down to the diamond beach to watch the crumbling ice journey outward to sea.
After the visit to the lagoon we will head back to the city but not before taking time to stop off at the waterfalls Skógafoss a mighty 65m tall waterfall and Seljalandsfoss a beautiful waterfall that holds a pathway that leads behind the waterfall offering a very special experience.
The duration of the tour is 14 hours.
The Northern Lights Bus takes you out of Reykjavik city to see the bright dancing lights of the aurora. The Northern Lights are one of the most spectacular shows in Iceland and can frequently be seen during the winter moths.
