About the tour


We begin this journey, starting in Reykjavik and travel towards the breathtaking waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Be sure to watch out the window at the beautiful landscape, seaside and hopefully glimpse the Westman Islands.

At Seljalandsfoss, make your way up the steep staircase to get a unique chance to walk behind a waterfall. Feel the power as the water drops from the famous glacier, Eyjafjallajokull.

Back in the jeep as we drive to Skogafoss. Be sure to catch this waterfall from two views, in front and above. Do you have what it takes to walk the 60 meters of stairs?

Golden Circle & Blue Lagoon Tour

About the tour


Starting in Reykjavik, this once in a lifetime tour starts with all the iconic sights of the famous Golden Circle. You will travel in a luxury jeep (6 people max) to Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and home to the first parliament, mid-Atlantic crest and Silfra fissure. The name Thingvellir means “Parliament Fields” in Icelandic. The general assembly, the Althing, was established here in 930 AD making it one of the oldest parliaments in the world. Thingvellir is also known for its geology and has been a protected area since 1928. You can walk the paths along and between the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates, exploring nature and take in the beautiful views.

Our next stop is the famous Geysir hot springs area. It is located in the geothermal active valley of Haukadalur. Today the most active Geysir is Strokkur, an energetic spouting hot spring which erupts every 6 to 9 minutes. The white column of boiling water forms a beautiful half bubble before spraying up super-heated steaming water. It can reach a height of 15-30m (60-90 feet). Strokkur (the churn) was formed in an earthquake in 1789. Excuse the smell, it’s the natural boiling sulfur!

After Geysir, we go to the powerful Gullfoss waterfall. This is one of the most popular sights in Iceland. It runs down the river Hvítá in a curved, three-stepped staircase form. It’s a very powerful experience to walk close to the waterfall on the west side as an average of 140 cubic meters of water falls per second (80 in winter). The falls send moisture into the air so be prepared to get a little wet. We recommend wearing waterproof clothing here.

After a full day of sightseeing we head to the famous Blue Lagoon to relax and unwind (ticket not included in tour, please pre-purchase you ticket). Here you will have ample time to enjoy this magical pool, swim and float around in the healing blue waters. Take your time to explore the lagoon, cave, waterfall shower, sauna, steam-room and much more. Why not also try the famous Blue Lagoon Silica Mud Mask or unique Algae Mask.

This is where the tour ends and you will be driven back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Blue Lagoon Ticket: MUST be booked for 17:00
