Know More about this tour

Hotel pickups for this 8-hour tour around the Golden Circle take place between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., with the aim to leave Reykjavik by about 10:15 a.m.

Your first stop of the day is at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. Take a walk into the rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, and learn about one of the world's first parliaments, the Althing.

Next, continue heading eastward over the small mountain pass, Lyngdalsheidi, toward the town of Laugarvatn, which lies within the Golden Circle. The town has a population of about 200, and lies predominantly along the west side of the lake. The lake contains geothermal springs under its surface, making it a popular swimming spot with some warm patches along the shoreline. Keep moving along to the amazing waterfall Gullfoss or the Golden Falls, which is an iconic waterfall of Iceland, located in the glacial river Hvítá.

After that, pay a short visit to the small but beautiful waterfall Faxi (or Vatnsleysufoss). The waterfall is located on the Tungufljót river.

The caldera, like the other volcanic rock in the area, is composed of a red (rather than black) volcanic rock. small fee of $4 to enter the area
