Full description
Depart Reykjavik and travel in a small group towards the famous Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon of Iceland. Stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park and experience its geological and historical importance first hand. Look around Iceland's first parliament at Althingi, and see the fissure at Silfra, rated one of the world‘s top dive sites. Next, head towards Faxi waterfall before visiting the hot springs area of Geysir. At Geysir you can walk among the bubbling springs and mud pits. Watch the land explode and hot water spout into the sky at the geyser of Strokkur. Then, go to the last attraction on the Golden Circle circuit at the waterfall of Gullfoss. Take in the stunning surroundings of the waterfall, located in the canyon of the Hvítá River. Be amazed as the water cascades down 32 meters in 2 steps.   End with a visit to the Secret Lagoon, where you can soak away your aches in a natural hot spring pool. Relax in the magical surroundings and feel all your stress slip away before the drive back to your accommodation in Reykjavík for an approximate 19:00 arrival.

Overall great experience! If you only have one full day in Iceland, this is a great sampling of the natural beauty and geological wonder. All 4 of the stops (National Park, geyser, waterfall, geothermal lagoon) are amazing. Only minor criticism is the limited amount of time at the different sites. Much of the first and final hours are eaten up by the bus pickup drop-off ceremony. But, overall a great experience!

We had a fabulous day! We toured the Golden circle on a small group tour of 12 people. (I highly recommend spending the extra money for a smaller group) we saw the most amazing waterfalls, a guysir, and ended our day at the Secret Lagoon. Our tour guide was kind and professional. We had a great day!

absolutely amazing tour and great to see so much more than on the agenda. you experience all the winter countryside and see the geysers and falls. Pascale was the best guide ever. one note, pickup bus stops in Reykjavik are very hard to find. research beforehand and allow plenty of extra time.
