The Golden Circle is Iceland's most iconic travel circuit, showcasing three natural wonders: the historic Þingvellir National Park, the powerful Gullfoss Waterfall, and the ever-erupting Geysir. Whether you prefer to travel it alone, with a group, or as part of a larger adventure in south Iceland, at Icelandia we can make it happen!

Why Choose a Golden Circle Tour?

Of all the landscapes in the south of Iceland, it’s perhaps the Golden Circle that most captures visitors’ imaginations. On this route, a stone's throw from the capital, Reykjavík, you’ll have the chance to explore the very essence of Iceland.

What do we mean by that? Here, you’ll see the natural variety and power—and discover the history—that has made Iceland the place it is today.

On a Golden Circle tour from Reykjavík, you’ll explore the best-known sites for the route.

Unforgettable Natural Wonders

First, there’s Geysir, where magnificent torrents of boiling water are forced from the Earth by geothermal pressure. In an area rich with volcanic activity, it makes for an unforgettable display. Then Gullfoss, one of the most powerful waterfalls in Europe, will take your breath away with its thundering torrent and atmospheric mists.

Visit Iceland Ancient Parliament

Finally, you’ll have the chance to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park, once the meeting place of Iceland’s ancient parliament. Among other wonders, the park is home to Silfra, a trench between two continents where you can swim.

But Golden Circle tours can show you more. At Icelandia, we offer visitors to the Land of Ice and Fire the chance to get off the beaten track and combine the classic sights with other wonders.
