Know More about this tour

Start your day with a pickup from your city hotel, and travel to Reykjavik Old Harbour to board your whale watching boat. Cruise out into Faxafli Bay, away from the shoreline, and look out for the whales and seabirds for which Iceland is famous. The bay is one of the best places to see Icelands marine life, and minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises are just a few of the creatures you may be lucky enough to see.

After roughly three hours, return to shore and swap your mode of transport to a coach for your afternoon Golden Circle tour. Listen as your guide talks about the route that loops into the heart of Iceland, and learn about the historical sights and natural phenomena ahead of you.

Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park, the area where Icelands first parliament was formed back in the first century. Take a walk around and gaze out over the rugged terrain as your guide gives the lowdown on the sites history.

From Thingvellir, continue to the waterfall of Gullfoss, known for its double cascades, and enjoy the spray of glacial water on your face as you stroll around the falls. Visit the bubbling Geysir hot springs, a geothermic marvel, and then stretch your legs on a visit to the village of Hverageri, known for its large quantity of hot springs and geothermal park.

Relax on the journey back to Reykjavik and finish with a drop-off at your hotel.
