What to expect

Spend your day discovering some of the most iconic sites in Iceland: the amazing geysers, the Golden waterfall, Thingvellir and the Blue Lagoon. As a bonus, you'll also get to see the big volcanic crater Kerid, with its unique lake at the bottom.
Thingvellir National park is the natural pride of all Icelanders: it's located in the belt of the volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, that divides two continents: if you want, you can stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America.

Next, you'll be taken to admire the geysers of Haukadalur, Strokkur, and Geysir itself, which gives all the others their name. Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes and you can watch as a column of water is launched into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters. Once your visit to the natural wonder is over, you'll get to see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, Gullfoss. This completes the standard Golden Circle route but, as a bonus, you'll also get to visit the Kerid Volcanic Crater, 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. If you look inside, at the bottom you'll find a lake, which adds a little bit of magic to this amazing view.

At the end of the day, your last stop will be the stunning Blue Lagoon, where you'll get to relax in the baths before being taken back to your hotel in Reykjavik.

Please note that the entrance fee to the Blue Lagoon is not included and must be booked separately for the 5pm/17:00 timeslot if you wish to swim in the Lagoon. After booking this tour, you will receive an email with further information on how to book your Blue Lagoon ticket.
