See Iceland’s geological wonders

Hop aboard your tour bus and head into the enchanting wilderness of Iceland with an expert guide. As you make your way into Thingvellir National Park, look out for breathtaking views as you descend into a rift valley. Shortly after this, you will get a chance to visit one of the country’s most sought-after attractions, the Geysir Hot Springs. Here, you will see the Strokkur Geyser shooting steam and water high into the air every few minutes. Gullfoss Waterfall will be the final stop on the Golden Circle Tour, where you will see the glacial waters of the Hvítá River thundering down a precarious 32-meter drop into the canyon below.

A quest for the Aurora Borealis

After a break for dinner and time to explore Reykjavik, your guide will take you on a quest to find the elusive Northern Lights. If you are lucky enough to spot the lights, you can get instructions on setting up your camera to capture it. Upgrade your Golden Circle adventure with a stop at the unique Kerio Crater, then cozy up with hot chocolate as you search for the Northern Lights.
