It’s a classic for good reason. Combining history, culture and extraordinary nature, the Golden Circle Classic Tour makes for an unforgettable day
Lasting 6-7 hours, the Golden Circle Classic Tour takes you on a wondrous circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s Southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites.
Rich history & colliding continents
Þingvellir National Park is an attraction of great historical, geological and cultural significance. Located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, the UNESCO designated world heritage site is also the birthplace of the Althing—Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD—where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking-age justice.
The tour continues across an area of picturesque scenery to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. Once there, you can take several paths around the two tiers of cascading water to explore several vantage points. Extra time is allotted at this location for a lunch break at Gullfoss Café.
Bubbling with excitement
Home of “The Great Geysir” hot spring, which all geysers are named after, this area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colourful algae deposits. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.

Thank you for submitting review
the pickup locations should have a map.
Golden Circle Classic Tour was a great experience. First, we had a nice weather. Second, the guide was a fun guy, a lot of info provided, etc. Third, we visited really beautiful places. A tour usually means, that you spend hours in the bus/car and when you get to the location, you have few minutes to enjoy it...On this tour, we had fairly enough time to see the locations and we could enjoy them, too. So well done, Gray Line.
