We had good weather, a very friendly driver and a very knowledgeable guide (Helli) who engaged with the visitors and spent time at each site to answer the questions.

Great way to see the Golden Circle in an afternoon.This tour isn't for anyone who can't get around fast as there was limited time to see the sights, but if you can get around quickly then you will be OK.

Tour Itinerary

First on the list is Þingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament Alþingi was established in the year 930 AD. Known as the ‘Assembly Fields’ or ‘Parliament Plains’, situated around 45 km east of the capital, they were the first home of what has become one of the oldest parliamentary institutions in the world.

In 2004 Þingvellir National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List and is now one of eight hundred places in the world that have been honoured by UNESCO. It is a site of historical, cultural and geological importance.

From there we continue to Gullfoss waterfall where glacial melt water cascades down into the deep and narrow Hvítárgljúfur canyon.

Returning from Gullfoss, next stop is the Geysir hot spring area where you'll get to walk amidst hissing steam vents, sulfurous mud pots and get up close to an erupting geyser.
