This Golden Circle tour takes you along glacial rivers and beautiful landscapes to the three jewels of Icelandic nature. Þingvellir National Park, Geysir hot spring area and the countries crown Gullfoss Waterfall

At Þingvellir we’ll encounter the birth place of the Icelandic nation, as well as the foundation site of the first Viking Parliament or Alþingi in the year of 930. It is still the oldest existing parliament in the world. Þingvellir is one of the spots where we can appreciate more clearly the forces shaping our planet as the tectonic plates spread apart creating new crust. We visit the visual Rift Between the Eurasian and American Continents

We come to Gullfoss Waterfall one of Iceland most beautiful sight. Not a coincidence that its name translates as the Golden Waterfall.

Geysir hot spring reputation precedes it as the gusher that gave the international name to the phenomenon “Hot Spring” doesn’t need much introduction. His neighbor, Strokkur, will blow steam high in the air few times per hour for our delight.

Please make online booking at least 2 hours prior to the departure.
For late bookings call: +354 558 8899

We travel in small groups, with maximum 19 persons, so dates tend to get fully booked rather early. Booking in advance allows us to organize the departures, so please, book in advance when possible.

During the winter, we may find icy conditions on the areas we visit, and the weather may be extremely windy and cold. Ice crampons can be useful and warm clothing recommended.

Our friends at Saga Travel offer wide range of other tours from Reykjavík and from Akureyri

Frequently Asked Questions

-Lunch is not included in any of the tours

-We always stop at some place where you can buy some food. A picnic in the case of the Glacier Walk during the South Coast.

-The gastronomic selection once you leave Reykjavik is quite limited. So, even though the prices are the ones of fine dinning, don’t expect any fancy places or menus.

-Giving recommendations about food is always difficult, and we have got feedback on both ends of the scale. Food being very good, and food being expensive and bad.

-Iceland is a place with very unstable weather, so you can expect anything at any time.

-Bring your sunglasses and your raincoat everywhere.

-During the winter you may find icy walkways, so having a pair of ice-walkers is not a bad idea during the winter. Quite often we do have some ice-walkers on the minibuses that you can borrow, but not always.

-All our tours are rather easy going, so no need of any special gear, outside the Glacier Walk on the South, where you need some shoes rigid enough as to tie the crampons without hurting your feet. You can borrow some footwear for the Glacier Walk on the South Coast.

– All cancellations must be made by e-mail and confirmed by Geoiceland customer service.

– Cancellations made with more than 48 hours notice will receive full refund of the payment.

– Cancellations made between 48 to 24 hours prior to departure will be charged 50% of the total.

-German, Swedish, Spanish, and French available for private groups.

-The concept is a minibus tour, with microphone commentary during the transit between stops, and once at the sites, free time to explore the location by yourself.

-All the tours are quite easy going, outside the Glacier Walk or the Snowmobiling (nothing extreme, but requires a minimum fitness).
