Highlights
  • 11-hour Golden Circle, Kerid crafter, and Blue Lagoon tour from Reykjavik 
  • A guide offers history and geology facts you wouldn’t learn on your own
  • Small-group tour of 19 or fewer people guarantees a memorable experience
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from your Reykjavik hotel or accommodation
What to expect
  • Begin your tour with pickup from your hotel or accommodation in the Reykjavik area. Meet your guide and small group and hop on your climate-controlled vehicle. Set out toward the Golden Circle, hearing about Icelandic history, geology, and culture from your guide en route. Head to Thingvellir National Park, where you learn about how it lies within a volcanically active area. It's also home to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Straddle two continents while you walk between the plates. Hop back on the bus for the journey to the lake-filled, 3,000-year-old Kerid crater. Stop to marvel at its magical-looking lake and colorful slopes. Next, visit the surreal Geysir geothermal area on foot, stopping at bubbling ponds, steam vents, and Geysir and Strokkur geysers. The next destinations are Gullfoss waterfall and the iconic Blue Lagoon. Choose to head inside the lagoon spa (own expense) if you’ve pre-booked admission. Enjoy a soak in the steamy waters while admiring surrounding lava fields. After roughly two hours at the lagoon, relax during the journey back to Reykjavik, and finish with a drop-off at your hotel.

Opportunity to see several highlights in one manageable day!
Visited in December so everything was covered in snow. Balfour was our guide (Nice travel) and he was great. Informative and experienced. Need to book SEPARATE admission to blue lagoon- contact the travel operator to confirm for which time slot. Note traveling in winter everything is dark by 5pm so it is hard to see the landscape of you arrive at the blue lagoon 5pm or later. I heard it’s hard to see during the day as well due to the steam coming off the lagoon.

Dear guests, thank you for booking our tour and for you kind comments. Thankfully the Blue lagoon is very well and beautifully lit so arriving there when it is getting dark can add another dimension to the experience.

Great day trip - do it!
Great day. Pickup from our hotel was prompt and drop off dead on time. Baldur was our driver and guide. He was great fun, full of stories and local knowledge. He explained the formation of Iceland really well. We had plenty of time at each stop and the final two hours in the Blue Lagoon rounded off a perfect day.

Just do it you won't regret it
Our tour guide/driver was extremely professional, informative and friendly. The day was packed full of sights and relaxation. Would recommend this to everyone who has only a day but wants to experience Iceland. Thank you so much for an amazing day nicetravel and also to Baldur (apologies as most likely spelt this wrong) you made this trip easy and fun.

Brilliant
Brilliant and our guide was so knowledgeable. The scenery was out of this world and we want to come back to visit other parts of the country. Highlights for us were the geysers. There was not a bad part but we did find the blue lagoon rather commercialised preferring the more natural elements of the trip
