The typical itinerary includes all the major highlights and attractions in southwest Iceland, known as the Golden Circle. Drive through the Thingvellir National Park, site of the world's first democratic parliament during Viking times. Stop at Geysir, the origin of the term 'geyser' in English, and the often-erupting Strokkur. Strokkur erupts every few minutes, ensuring a great photo op of the bright blue spray. 

Visit Gullfoss, the most famous of Iceland's many impressive waterfalls, and return to Reykjavík through Skálholt, the site of the country's first Episcopal See, dating from 1056.

Stop at the Fridheimar greenhouse for a delicious restaurant lunch (not included) and conclude the day at the Kerid Crater, for the possibility to walk around the dead volcano.

Your private tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Great Golden Circle Tour

Our tour guide, Anna, was great. She listened to us and adjusted the tour to meet our needs. We had already seen a couple of the items on tour in previous visits to Iceland and she made recommendations on other places to see that we were very happy with. She was very informative on the places we visited and she let us set the pace for our tour that day. Great recommendation for lunch at the Fridheimar.

Superb Iceland Golden Circle Tour Plus!

We had a wonderful private tour by Anna of Iceland’s Golden Circle. Not only did we get to see the “Big Three,” we also had additional stops to see rye bread making; eat local, delicious, homemade ice cream; see a private waterfall; tour and eat at a tomato farm; and see Icelandic horses up close! Anna was extremely knowledge, personable and gracious. She told us much about Iceland’s history, legends and myths. There is a bit of walking on this tour… and Anna always made sure we only walked downhill! Thank you, Anna! We had a superb time and will visit Iceland again!

Jon is very friendly and knowledgeable, the tour is absolutely wonderful and we would love to come back with more time. One day Golden circle tour is better than none but every single attraction enroute is worth more time so could easily be 2-3 days with more time for walks at the sights. If one day is all you have, do this tour you won't regret it. Comfortable car, amazing scenery and a highlight to remember

Excellent look at Iceland if you're short on time

It was the most beautiful day. The Golden Circle" has, without a doubt, the longest golden hour for photos. The light is perfect as the sun just hangs low in the sky for hours at the end of June. Jon was hugely informative, convivial, and professional. A font of knowledge and fun to spend an afternoon/evening with.

We had a fantastic day. Saw several amazing waterfalls, the historic parliament and also the hot springs in Geysir. We also made a stop for some nice local ice cream. Good mix of educational stuff and also seeing nature. Our guide Anna looked after us really well - gave us lots of interesting background on the drive between sites and didn’t rush us at all. The day went by very quickly.

Our tour guide was John. He was very knowledgeable and shared some great history and stories! The trip was beautiful! Our least favorite stop was the Geyser but that had nothing to do with the guide or the experience.

This is absolutely the best way to do the Golden Circle Tour! Wonderful guide promptly met us at the hotel and made us feel like VIPs. Guide had lots of information about Iceland's history and culture that was very interesting and useful. Hotel pickup and return were perfect. Our guide had wonderful recommendations for stops and for lunch. Tips: This tour is a long day but getting an early start worked best for us.
