Know More about this tour

The Golden Circle Express is ideal for those with a little less time, as in just 7.5-hours you'll see the famous erupting geyser and hot springs, experience the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and walk in the footsteps of Vikings through the lava canyon where the American and Eurasian continents have dramatically pulled apart in Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park.

Step on board a comfortable new coach, equipped with WiFi-connected computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use the GPS Sensitive Audio Guide, available in 10 languages. There is also a local guide on board, who will happily answer any questions you might have about Iceland. In each seat you will also find a USB Charger, should you need to top up your phone or camera battery along the way.

The first stop is in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the founding place of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the huge tectonic plates of America and Eurasia drift a part and the rift valley is there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland’s biggest lake.

The next stop is at Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the original geyser and Iceland’s most famous natural attraction. Here the ground shakes and steaming hot water erupts magnificently into the sky from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.

Our final stop is at Gullfoss Waterfall, where you can go for an easy walk down to the edge of the waterfall, an unforgettable sight to behold. Here the powerful glacial river flows down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

We will make a minimum 30 minute stop at Geysir Hot Springs, Gullfoss Waterfall and Þingvellir National Park. In Geysir & Gullfoss there are shops where you can buy food and drinks.

If you only have time to do one tour in Iceland, then this should be the one.

  • Great tour - the small number of people meant that we got a very personal experience. Highly recommend, especially if you want to start a little later in the day than the regular Golden Circle tours.

  • Excellent, personable, knowledgeable guide. Pickup at our hotel was on time. The tour was just the right length to see the continental rift, geysers and Gullfoss waterfall without feeling rushed. There were adequate bathroom breaks and plenty of time for lunch. My waterproof poncho came in handy for the rain and waterfall. In spite of the rain, it was an awesome experience!

  • Excellent tour with a very friendly well informed guide. Strongly recommend.

  • This trip was amazing. Of course, we had wonderful weather, but our tour guide Johan was interesting, funny, and a wealth of knowledge. He showed us lots of interesting sites. I was somewhat concerned about the amount of walking, but it was not a problem. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • Our guide Hilda was very friendly and knowledgeable. However the bus microphone was not working and she had to really project her voice and she maintained a high level of professionalism. Our driver Willie was very efficient and was very open to questions when the bus was parked a various sites.

    I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
    I give it 4 .5 stars

  • It is a wonderful tour. If you have only a short time in Reykjavik, the Golden Circle Express Tour is highly recommended.

  • The tour was amazing. I highly recommend this tour as it was well worth the money and you get to see a lot of Icleand in a few hours.

  • An amazing tour, the guide and driver added to the experience with a wealth of knowledge. This tour is a must do, so much of Iceland packed into the tour.

  • this was perfect for me since I had trouble walking it was enough time to spend in the places as needed. great guides

  • This was an excellent tour of the Golden Circle. We saw all of the highlights, and spent just the right amount of time at each location about 45 minutes. The views from the bus while driving between the different highlights were absolutely stunning! Our tour was able to make an extra stop at a beautiful waterfall because we were running slightly ahead of schedule. My only complaint was that the on-board bus bathroom wasn't working, but it really wasn't an issue because there were rest areas at each stop.
