Tour provided by: Mountaineers of Iceland
Our most popular day tour ever.
The Golden Circle tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Our first stop is at Þingvellir National Park, which is one of Iceland’s most significant historical sites. It's the home of Iceland’s first parliament which was founded in 930 AD. From Þingvellir we head along mountain tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir Hot Spring, the one spouting hot spring on Earth after which all other spouting hot springs are named. From there we continue on to Gullfoss (“the Golden waterfall”) where your proximity to its edge is so close you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face. Next we kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for an one hour snowmobile tour on Langjökull, Europe’s second largest glacier. We reserve the right to alter the itinerary according to weather and road conditions.
We recommend that you bring warm & wind-proof clothing in addition to good, waterproof hiking boots and a camera.
