Let us take you on a thrilling tour of the grand Golden Circle and the spectacular Kerid crater in South Iceland! Then you’ll enjoy an unforgettable dip at the sensational Sky Lagoon, Iceland’s newest spa experience!

The Golden Circle gives you the chance to see the very best features of Iceland’s remarkable landscapes in one easy day trip. You’ll get up close to geysers and waterfalls, walk between continents and around a colorful crater, and bath in the superb Sky Lagoon.

Thingvellir National Park
Your Golden Circle tour will start with a short drive from the city to Thingvellir National Park. In this dramatic rift valley, the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from each other along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge so that you can stand on two continents simultaneously! Thingvellir was also Iceland’s first parliament. For hundreds of years, the Vikings of Iceland came here each summer for festivals and to settle their disputes. The “Law Rock” and the “drowning pool” saw rough justice delivered for thieves and murderers!

Geysir & Haukadalur Geothermal Area
As we head deeper into Iceland, the next stop is Geysir, the most impressive sight in the Haukadalur “hot spring” area. Geysir is the Icelandic word for “gush” and gave its name to all spouting hot springs. Geysir doesn’t erupt very much now. But there is another gusher called Strokkur just a few meters away, which sends boiling fountains of water high into the sky every few minutes. Watch where you stand while you wait, or you might get a shower! You’ll feel the power of Earth’s burning core and smell it in your nostrils too!

Gullfoss - The Golden Waterfall
Just a short distance further inland lies your next extraordinary encounter with Iceland’s natural marvels – the glorious waterfall Gullfoss. The “Gold Falls” are a two-tier waterfalls fueled by Langjokull, the second-largest glacier in Iceland. Millions of gallons of glacial meltwater crash down over 30 meters here into a steep-sided canyon. On sunny days, the sheets of spray generate gigantic rainbows that wrap around the waterfall.

Kerid Volcanic Crater
After Gullfoss, your next stop will be the incredible multi-colored crater at Kerid. Only a few thousand years old, the volcanic rocks are still rich in iron deposits, turning the caldera a vivid crimson color. There’s also an azure lake and blankets of soft green mosses too. That makes Kerid one of the brightest spots you’ll see anywhere in the country!

Sky Lagoon (admission included)
As we return to the city, there is one more extraordinary experience to come! Icelanders love to bathe in geothermal hotpots, and now you can do the same at the Sky Lagoon! This brand-new spa experience, located just outside Reykjavik, features an immense 250-foot-long heated infinity pool, a swim-up bar and oceanfront views.

You’ll enjoy two heavenly hours lapping up the luxury here at Sky Lagoon – the perfect way to end your Golden Circle experience! During the booking process you can select one of the two types of admission: Pure and Sky.

Nowhere else can you see so many natural marvels in one day. Rich in fascinating history and magnificent sights, this tour is your chance to experience Iceland at its best!
