This relaxing bus tour will allow you to truly appreciate the exquisite beauty of the Golden Circle, most evident as you drive through the picturesque scenery of Thingvellir National Park. The park will allow you to retrace the steps of the ancient Vikings who once roamed these regions. The largest lake in Iceland, Thingvallavatn, with its crystal clear water is undoubtedly going to make you fall in love with the park. Your guide will elaborate on the rich culture and history of the region, allowing you to obtain a peek into the lives of the first people who settled and formed a parliament here in ancient times.
The hilly regions of Haukadalur are perfectly suited for a hike, treating you to incredible panoramic views of the surroundings. As you see the Strokkur geyser sprouting a towering jet of water, and the ground trembles beneath your feet, the incredible forces of nature can be experienced. The blue-green water in the rocky region is a confluence of colors that can rarely be witnessed elsewhere. Geysir, although dormant most of the year, is the perfect hiking spot for those who want to catch astonishing sights of the surroundings from incredible vantage points.
The last attraction on the itinerary is the Gullfoss Waterfall. From afar, it presents the illusion of being a lake, landlocked on all sides. Only as you move in closer will you be able to catch sight of the plummeting waters over the edge of the canyon. A truly breathtaking sight, it is the perfect spot to lie back and absorb the sounds of the roaring waters that flow over the edge.
With a hop on hop off ticket, you can choose to spend more time at any of the iconic locations of your choice. A minimum 30-minute stop is included at each of the attractions so you can relax and give each site the time it deserves.
The sightseeing tour is available from Monday to Sunday at 8 AM, 9 AM, 10 AM and 11 AM. It can last anywhere between 7.5 hours - 11.5 hours, depending on how long you spend at the national park, hot springs, waterfall, etc.
We recommend that you dress in warm, waterproof clothes, like a waterproof jacket, pants, gloves and headgear. We also recommend that you wear sturdy, outdoor shoes.
