Know More about this tour

Advise the tour operator of your preferred time and get picked up from your Reykjavk hotel, ready for a 7 to 8-hour private tour of southwest Iceland.

First, drive around 30 minutes to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where the Althing, the Icelandic Parliament, was founded in 930. Learn about the history of the area and its high level of seismic activity. Continue 30 minutes to Laugarvatn lake and soak up the majestic beauty of the surrounding mountains. Head another 25 minutes east into the Haukadalur valley where you will see Geysir, also known as the Great Geysir, as well as Strokkur, its smaller neighbor, which erupts every few minutes with bursts of sparkling blue water.

It's just a 10-minute drive to Gullfoss, the 'Queen' of Icelandic waterfalls, which plunges 105 feet (32 meters) into a gaping canyon. Next, head 20 minutes to Faxi waterfall, a little less known and smaller. For lunch (own expense) stop at Friheimar, a restaurant in a greenhouse, to eat among the tomato vines. After lunch, head to Keri, a volcanic crater, before the drive back to your Reykjavk hotel.

  • Our only complaint about this experience is that our driver was very reserved. He was professional and timely, but offered little information. We, at times, asked questions to obtain additional information, but received minimal feedback. If someone is looking to be driven to all the sites without wanting to hear about history et al this is a very well run excursion. However, if you are comfortable renting a car with GPS, you would easily have a similar experience and save considerable money.

  • excellent driver with interresting info about the country. too bad the weather was not with us. But He very gladly added a downtown tour since we were early on the program because of the weather. wery positive experience

  • This is a must when coming to Iceland. We had a great guide and a memorable experience. Well worth the money!!!

  • Excellent guide.

  • We had a private tour of the Golden Triangle, and it was quite good. We left at 9:00 AM, ahead of the tour busses and other major traffic.

    Excellent views of waterfalls and geysers.

  • Great tour, my guide went above and beyond to make it an enjoyable experience.

  • Bad weather limited the tour.

  • Oil was an excellent guide and answered all of our endless questions. Vehicle was clean and tour was beautiful!!

  • This was an excellent way to see a lot in one day at one's own pace. John from Private Hire Iceland, the sub-contractor, was excellent. He really knew his country and was very proud of it.

  • Not much off a tour - it is just like providing private transportation to each attraction.
