Discover the Wonder of Geysir and Gullfoss Fall

Join a local English-speaking guide for a full-day Golden Circle tour from Reykjavik to explore the Arctic edge. Experience the allure of Iceland's renowned Geysir geothermal area, where the first geyser was documented in European literature over 10,000 years ago. Don't miss the chance to witness the Strokkur geyser erupt every 6 to 10 minutes. See the Gullfoss Waterfall, fed by the Langjökull glacier. Admire the double cascade as it tumbles down a stunning 32 meters. On sunny days, you might even spot a rainbow.

Explore Thingvellir and more

Hike along the Thingvellir National Park where the first-ever parliament took place and the only place in the world where you can stand between two continental plates. Upgrade your experience to visit Bruarfoss, a waterfall named for a natural arch that once served as a bridge. The water at Brúarfoss appears in a milky turquoise hue due to glacial flour suspended within, and its color can shift depending on the sunlight and weather. This option also includes a visit to Kerio Crater, around 3,000 years old. Walk along the crater rim for stunning views or descend to the lake's edge for a unique perspective.
