Tour Details
The Golden Circle Tour takes you on a wonderful circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s Southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites. You will visit one of the most historical place in Iceland (Þingvellir), along with some incredible Icelandic nature sites (Geysir & Gullfoss).

Tour Highlights

Thingvellir National Park
Þingvellir is one of the most important sites in Iceland. It was here the oldest current parliament in the world was formed. The parliament was established here in the year 930 and lasted until 1798. Parlament was then re-established in the year 1881, but then it was moved to Alþingishúsið in Reykjavík. Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological significance, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. The park lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. To its south lies Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. Þingvellir National Park was founded in 1930, marking the 1000th anniversary of the Icelandic parliament.

Laugarvatn
Laugarvatn lies within the Golden Circle, a popular tourist route, and acts as a staging post. The town has a population of about 200 and lies predominantly along the west side of the lake. The lake contains geothermal springs under its surface, making it a popular swimming spot with some warm patches along the shoreline year-round. This is also a great place to experience a very unique geothermal bakery.

Efsti Dalur Farm
In Efstidalur you will get a unique and different experience. Right in the middle of the Golden Circle, you get a glance of the farm life in Iceland. This family farm has opened up for tourists and offers a variety of products straight from the farm, such as the famous ice cream, skyr and feta cheese. Efstidalur II is run by four siblings and their families. They recently took over the business from their parents that started and developed the concept with them as it is today. The siblings are the 7th generation living on the property but their family has been living on Efstidalur II since around 1750. They are dairy farmers first and foremost, but since 2002 the business has developed with increased tourism in the area. In 2013 they opened the restaurant and café and began to make their own products from the milk produced at the farm.

Geysir
Sometimes known as ”The Great Geysir”, is a geyser in southwestern Iceland. It was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans. The English word geyser derives from Geysir. The name Geysir itself is derived from the Icelandic verb geysa (to gush). Geysir himself is unfortunately not sprouting any more. However, his little brother "Strokkur" is still sprouting every 5-6 minutes and the usual hight is around 15-20 meters.

Gullfoss
Gullfoss is the largest waterfall in Iceland (by volume). It is also among the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland and the world. Tourists from all over the world, visit the waterfall every year. During the first half of the 20th century and some years into the late 20th century, there was much speculation about using Gullfoss to generate electricity. Sigríður Tómasdóttir, the daughter of the landowner, was determined to preserve the waterfall's condition and even threatened to throw herself down the waterfall. She fortunately, managed to save the waterfall and today this waterfall is a protected landmark. There is a stone memorial of Sigriður, located above the falls, that depicts her profile.

Secret Lagoon (Optional)
Bathing at the Secret Lagoon nature bath at Flúðir. The pool’s natural surroundings and steam rising into the air gives the place a magical feeling. The warm water stays at 38-40 Celsius all year round. There is currently no need to book in advance. You can see more info here Secretlagoon.is

Kerið (Optional)
Kerið is a volcanic crater lake, that is a popular stop when traveling the Golden Circle. You will be required to pay a small entrance fee. You can see more info here Kerid.is

The upper falls of the famous Gullfoss in the Golden Circle, Iceland. What an amazing waterfall. The path down to the river was closed so I had to work with limited views.

Si tu devais définir ton ressenti de l'Islande en une seule photo ?

Ah ben celle là chef, pourquoi ? Parce que depuis 2 jours c'est une explosion dans nos têtes, dans nos yeux, c'est froid, c'est chaud, c'est montagne c'est mer c'est aurores, c'est gourmand c'est croquant, c'est trop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ce pays se situe quelquepart entre la Nouvelle Zélande, une toute autre planète et la scandinavie...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alors oui, y'a du vent, ouiiii il pleut, oui il fait gris, mais franchement quel plaisir de retaper la route, d'être crevés le soir, de s'endormir direct, d'avoir hâte de re-regarder les photos, de courir jusque la dernière minute de jour et d'appeler les hôtels pour savoir si on peut check in après 20h30 🤣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bref, on kiffe déjà, c'est pas sur le point de s'arrêter, et on espère que vous kiffez avec nous par les photos qu'on vous partage 😊

Frozen Gullfoss. Probably the coldest night I’ve experienced in my life with strong winds too. It was unbearable for someone like me who feels cold when it’s less than 30°C out there 😀 But the aurora was crazy, kept dancing in the sky the whole night, absolutely spectacular show .
