The traditional Golden Circle Private tour consists of three stunning sights, Þingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss. On this tour we will explore all those locations and we will also do our best to find some other cool sights or activities in the area, that will make this tour an even more complete and satisfying experience for you.
Your driver guide will do everything in his power to satisfy your needs and help you make the most of your tour around the Golden Circle. We will for example start the trip when you want it to start, we will spend as much time as you want at each location and if you see a cool spot on our way, we will do our best to get you to that place so you can at least take the perfect photo.
The first stop of the Golden Circle Private tour is usually Þingvellir National Park. This is where the old viking parliament used be. Thingvellir is an extremely important place in an historic context and it certainly captures a great combination of the raw Icelandic nature. Thingvellir is also the places where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from one another. This tectonic activity has made its effect on the area and the visual outcome is beautiful.
Next stop would be Geyser geothermal area. Geysir is the name of the geyser that was most active in earlier days. This is the spouting hot spring that all the other geysers are named after. Geysir has been inactive for several years but his brother Strokkur is located right next to Geysir. Every 4-8 minutes Strokkur shoots boiling hot water up to 30 meters in the air in an impressive display of mother nature‘s power. Although the water is boiling hot when it leaves the ground, it cools down very quickly. the spray from the geyser actually feels refreshing and should not do you any harm as long as you follow the rules and don’t go past the ropes that surround the hot spring itself.
Gullfoss waterfall is only a short drive away from Geysir. Gullfoss is a powerful multi-step waterfall in the Glaciers river Hvítá. There are several different platforms that people can use to get different views over the waterfall. On the lowest platform you can get right next to the waterfall and when you get that close to it, you can really sense the overwhelming power from the waterfall.
There are many other beautiful places to see in the area and we will make sure to stop at some of them (included in the price). On this Golden Circle Private tour you also have many options when it comes to activities.
Some examples of extra activity would be:
Rent a helicopter to take you a bit of track and view some cool places from the air (such as Glymur waterfall in Hvalfjörður. Glymur is a 200 meter high waterfall and the second highest waterfall in Iceland).
Relax in the Secret Lagoon at the end of the trip.
