What to expect in this tour
There is a very good reason why the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon are at the top of list of must see places for most visitors to Iceland! Here you combine these two magic places in one day tour with comfort admission tickets into the Blue lagoon and admission to the Kerid Volcanic Crater included in the package.
Your day starts by driving from Reykjavik to the historic site of Thingvellir National Park. This was the venue for the Icelandic parliament from 930 till 1798 and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage SIte, both for it´s rich history and amazing nature. This is also where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet which creates an amazing feeling having one foot in each world.
After enjoying the experience of Thingvellir, you will travel onwards to the world famous site of the hot spring Geysir. Known throughout the world for it´s power and beauty, Geysir has become a synonym for this amazing show of nature. Strokkur, another hot spring, sits nearby and is very active, erupting to heights up to 30 meters every few minutes. In the Geysir area you will also have time to buy lunch or some snacks.
Next on the agenda is the waterfall Gullfoss – the golden waterfall. One of the most popular tourist attractions is Iceland, Gullfoss will amaze you with it´s raw power and beauty, plummeting down 32 meters into a rugged canyon.
These three attractions complete the classic Golden Circle – but to add even more to your experience – we also stop at the spectacular Kerid Volcanic Crater. This 3000 year old crater is 55 meters deep and offers a unique view of the beauty of the Icelandic nature. Admission to the Kerid is included in the tour price.
After this visual feast, it is time for you to head onward to the Blue Lagoon to spend the rest of your day relaxing in the natural hot water and enjoying the fantastic facilities there. The Blue Lagoon is sold out on most dates but as this tour includes the admission tickets, you can start looking forward to enjoying this unique place as soon as you have completed your booking of the tour.
After spending 2 hours at the Blue Lagoon, it is time to head back to the bright lights of Reykjavik where you can reflect on an amazing day and enjoy the rest of your night.
