Itinerary


Golden Circle & Reykjavik City Sightseeing Tour is a perfect way of how to see Icelandic's history and amazing nature in one day. If you are looking for these two options, this tour is right for you.

On this tour, you will get to enjoy a view over Reykjavik from the Perlan museum, explore the oldest part of the city, and visit the Hallgrķmskirkja church who's design was inspired by basalt lava columns and Icelandic nature. You will explore the farm style of the Presidential Residence at Bessastašir and the town Hafnarfjöršur, where a mysterious race of “hidden people” lives in perfect harmony with the human population.

Leaving at 13:00 for the Golden Circle as the second part of this combination tour, you will see geological intrigue and historic legacy featuring National Park Žingvellir; Gullfoss waterfall, and Geysir hot spring area.

Žingvellir National Park
Žingvellir National park became the national park in 1930, exactly one thousand years after the Althing, first Icelandic parliament was founded here in 930 AD. Icelandic nation's most powerful leaders met and decide on all legislations, laws during the Viking-age justice. We can call Althing also the first democratic parliament in the world. Žingvellir National Park is home for many rare world's natural phenomenons. For example, its location in the rift valley is where Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. Žingvellir has also a beautiful waterfall, a natural lake Žingvallavatn, and more. Žignvellir is a place to not miss.

Gullfoss Waterfall
A waterfall that got its name after the golden color of its water as it churns up silt and sediment. Gullfoss waterfall is situated on the river Hvķtį and it has two stages, and together the waterfall makes 54 meters of down running water. There is a lot of stories behind the Gullfoss, and also why this majestic waterfall got the name "golden falls", and our best-experienced guide will gladly share with you on your tour. But for now, one of them is that Sigrķšur Tómassdóttir stopped any plans of buildings at Gullfoss waterfall which were supposed to make from this waterfall an electricity generator. This story is most likely false, but people like to share it with visitors.

Geysir Strokkur and more
The third stop of the Golden Circle tour part is at amazing, little bit smelling but warm Geysir Geothermal area. Here you can find geyser Strokkur that erupts every 6-10 minutes, and even it is not always the strongest eruption, it is so worth seeing it. All Geysir Geothermal area is a place we always ask you to pay respect to nature in the area.
