Overview
The Golden Circle route helps travellers reach of some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural attractions, but the distances can pose a challenge. On this afternoon sightseeing tour, hit three of the most popular sites  in southwest Iceland—Gulfoss waterfall, Haukadalur, and Thingvellir National Park—with ease, thanks to your driver/guide. Explore the sites on foot and soak up the scenery, with pickup and drop-off included from Reykjavik.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with late-morning pickup from your centrally located Reykjavik hotel or the cruise port. Hop into your vehicle and head out on the Golden Circle route.

First, visit the Geysir and Strokkur geysers in Haukadalur. With your guide leading the way, head straight to the best vantage points and gain insight into the region’s geothermal activities.

Continue on to Gulfoss waterfall—widely considered among the Golden Circle’s top natural attractions—and feel the spray from the waters of the glacial Hvítá River.

Delve into Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your route takes you through some of Thingvellir’s most impressive landscapes, with scenic views over the Icelandic countryside from the comfort of your vehicle.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Reykjavik hotel or the cruise port.
