Golden Circle Express Tour Including Optional Blue Lagoon Admission from Reykjavik


  • Save time and see three of Iceland's most famous landmarks in half a day

  • Visit Thingvellir National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage Site

  • A great choice for visitors with limited time 


After a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, travel in style on a bus with Wi-Fi access and GPS sensitive tablets with audio commentary. A guide provides commentary during the bus journey.  The tour starts at UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. Here you can see where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates have pulled apart and created a rift valley: it's an amazing place to take photos of Iceland's largest lake and enjoy panoramic views. Next, stop off at Geysir, to witness the world-famous erupting Strokkur Geyser. If you're hungry, you are able to pick up snacks and drinks from shops here. Finally, head to the stunning Gullfoss Waterfall. The 2-tiered waterfall cascades down 104 feet (32 meters) and roars as the water hits the glacial lake at the base. Your day finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.
