Golden Circle Private Full Day Tour

The Golden Circle has been the most popular day tour in Iceland for decades – almost since the first tourist arrived to the country. You will visit the famous Geyser area to experience its neighbour Strokkur erupting. The famous Gullfoss – the Golden waterfall, is described by so many as the most beatiful waterfall in Iceland – or some just say WOW.

Þingvellir National Park is so unique in geology and for Iceland’s history. Where else in the world can you walk between two continents? We could even check out some Game of Thrones locations if we’re in the mood. Did you know that Tolkien – the author of Lord of The Rings had an icelandic babysitter?

Of course, we will stop at the Kerið volcanic crater, so within one day, 4 main stops, so unlike each other that it’s actually very strange they’re even in the same area. And of course I’ll show you my favorite viewpoint at Þingvellir National Park – overlooking some Game of Thrones locations.

Trip Highlights


The Golden Circle day tour has been the most popular daytour in Iceland for decades and not without a reason. A private daytour will give you the flexibility needed to enjoy more of the sites visited – and to see more.

Majestic sites like Þingvellir National Park – the only place in the world where you can witness the tectonic plates meet above water and as well visit the site of the first parlament in the world. Lets add to that Öxarárfoss waterfall and to walk down in between the tectonic plates – down Almannagjá canyon and Þingvellir is just something that can not been missed.

Geysir geothermal area where Strokkur erupts every 5 – 10 minutes is a experience that gives you something to remember. Let’s not forget all the other hot springs – each and everyone beatiful and some even spouting a little bit to show you they are alive and kicking.

Gullfoss or the Golden waterfall has by so many been descriped as the most beatiful waterfall in Iceland – and we have many to choose from. Could be the wow factor when you walk out to the first viewpoint or just the raw beaty of seeing it plunging down 32 meters in to drops. 

On this Golden Circle private day tour we will also visit Efstidalur farm – so much more than a farm becaue they make the best icecream in all Iceland and we do have a lot of good icecream.
