Overview
Take a day trip you won't soon forget on this Golden Circle and Kerid tour from Reykjavik. Unlike traditional Golden Circle tours, this excursion includes a visit to Kerid, a 6,000-year-old crater lake, and convenient hotel pickup and drop-off. In a climate-controlled coach bus, travel between Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, and the Geysir Geyser with ease, and learn about local culture and folklore from a guide.
Highlights
  • Explore the Golden Circle on a hassle-free day trip 
  • An ideal choice for travelers with limited time in Iceland 
  • Travel between natural wonders with ease from Reykjavik 
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
In the morning, board a climate-controlled coach bus at your Reykjavik hotel, and set off for Iceland’s Golden Circle route. During the journey, your guide provides commentary with stories of local legends and folklore. Stop first at the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, where the tectonic plates of Eurasia and North America collide, and visit Althing, one of the oldest functioning parliaments in the world. Next up is the thermal town of Laugarvatn, followed by Gulfoss waterfall. At the waterfall, enjoy ample time to explore and take photographs. See the famous spouting Strokkur geyser, Faxi waterfall, and the Tungufljót river. The tour culminates with a visit to the 6,000-year-old crater lake of Kerid, composed of vivid red volcanic rock. After stopping briefly in the thermal town of Hveragerdi, return to your Reykjavik hotel in the early evening.

This tour was a great time. I couldn't imagine doing this tour in a huge bus like some of the other groups we saw. The sprinter van was just the right size. I really appreciated the extra small stops peppered into the tour and our tour guide Magnus was warm and engaging. I do
