Know More about this tour

Start your experience with a pickup from Reykjavik and travel by minivan to a typical Icelandic lava tube cave, arrive at a lava field and listen as your guide explains how long-ago volcanic eruptions created a maze of lava tunnels and caves, hidden under your feet.

Get a safety briefing, put on your provided helmet with headlamp, and follow your guide into a lava cave. Then, walk and crawl through the dark chambers to see weird and wonderful rock formations, craters and other natural wonders.

After the caving exploration you will be dropped off at a bakery for a short lunch break before being being picked up again for the sightseeing part of this adventure combo tour. Follow the famous route around southern Iceland to visit three of its must-see natural phenomena. Your first stop? Gulfoss waterfall. Ogle the 105-foot (32-meter) cascade as it crashes over stepped tiers of lava and then continue your journey to Geysir. See the bubbling hot pools and marvel at Strokkur, the erupting hot spring that shoots water high in the air every few minutes. Next, travel to UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, famous for its raw Icelandic beauty. Stretch your legs to see the Thingvellir tectonic rift where the two continental plates sit side by side and, hear about the Viking meetings first held here in the 10th century, effectively making them the world's first parliaments.

Please note that the order of the itinerary can vary whereas we might swap the order of the attractions due to weather conditions and other related factors.

  • Great trip, cavng was amazing. More time needed for Golden circle tour though. Thankfully I had been before

  • I found with most things in Iceland they over-priced, and over-promise and under deliver. Unfortunately this was no different. The driver/guide use the word guide loosely was friendly, but we had to ask her questions, pry for information about Iceland and the places we were visiting. She was also a reckless driver - to the point where quite a few passengers made comment.
    The sights themselves were great - however my partner and I felt quite rushed on each of the Golden Circle stops - and we were constantly waiting for the same couple to return to the bus the guide didn't hurry them along.

  • Tour guide, Sveni?, I think, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with all aspects of the tour. Totally enjoyed all sights and the approx. 1000 meter lava caving was GREAT! Highly recommend.
