Full description

Embark on a trip around the beloved Golden Circle, a must-see area you cannot miss during your time in Iceland. Enjoy three stops on the classic route and some staff favorites as extra stops. Visit Kerid Crater (entry included) and stop for lunch at the Fridheimar Tomato Farm.

Head to the Thingvellir National Park first. Learn the history behind this park and get a one-of-a-kind opportunity to walk from the European tectonic plate to the North-American one. Next, visit the Laugarvatn geothermal area.

Discover the original geyser, Geysir, and its little brother, Strokkur, which is still active today and erupts every 5-8 minutes. Set up your cameras and catch this spectacular activity.

Then, see Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, and spot the Langjökull glacier on the horizon if it’s sunny enough. Stop at Fridheimar Tomato Farm just in time for lunch (not included). Learn about the use of local geothermal energy and experience how this process works.

Before the end of the trip, visit another secret staff favorite: the Kerid volcanic crater in the Grímsnes area. Marvel at the caldera that’s 55-meters deep and 270-meters wide. At the bottom, find an amazing aquamarine blue lake.
