Full description
Experience Iceland’s 2 most visited natural attractions, the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon, in one day on a comfortable and convenient minibus tour. Departing Reykjavik, your first stop is at Thingvellir National park, the point at which the Eurasian and American tectonic plates converge. Amble through the stunning, lake-filled area, hopping back and forth between continental boundaries, and view the spot at which Icelandic parliament was held from 930-1798.

Afterwards, you’ll head to the Geysir hot spring. Home to a variety of geothermal pools which reach temperatures upwards of 200 degrees, the main event of the area is the Strokkur geyser, which erupts a plume of boiling water and steam up to 100 feet in the air every few minutes. In the Geysir area, you can grab a bite to eat if you so desire, before heading to Gullfoss, the mightiest and most breathtaking of all Icelandic waterfalls. 

Next on the docket is the Kerid volcanic crater, which dates back to an eruption that occurred over 3,000 years ago. Gaze down into the deep blue waters, surrounded by vibrant red rock. Your tour ends with a stop at another of Iceland’s most iconic sights, the Blue Lagoon. Luxuriate in the warm, geothermal waters, making use of an included silica mud mask.

The tour was very nice. David, the tour guide, excellent! However, we chose the small group tour and ended up sitting single file behind one another. This dampened the experience. We had no idea the mini bus isles were 2 seats together and single seats across the isle. Being the last group they picked up, we all sat in the only seats available, the single seats.

Superb full day trip. Enjoyed all activities which were very impressive in the snow. The driver and guide was very good and interesting. He gave us about the right amount of time to enjoy each site and for comfort / lunch breaks. We ended this busy day at the Blue Lagoon which was very relaxing (with the free mask and beer) and capped by the snow which started to fall. We would like to do this trip again but not in the snow to compare it.

Was collected near the hotel in small bus. We were 20 people on the trip (adjust number). We drove to all the different places where the guide briefly told us about the place and what we should pay attention to etc! In short!! We just had time to "explore" the place. Incidentally, the guide drove it perfectly the total blowing weather we were in - we felt safe and secure throughout the trip.
