Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins at your Reykjavik hotel, where you board a Wi-Fi-equipped minibus. Over the course of your tour, discover the highlights of the Golden Circle, a 185-mile (300-km) route home to spectacular natural landmarks.

    The first stop is Kerid, a crater lake filled with milky blue water that cascades down black and red rocks.

    Then, stop at Efstidalur farm to sample Icelandic delicacies and learn about traditional agricultural practices.

    Continue on to Geysir and Strokkur, whose boiling mud pits and erupting geysers create an incredible sight.

    See, too, the colossal Gulfoss Waterfall, whose powerful torrents of water plunge into a deep crevasse 105 feet (32 meters) below.

    The final stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates collide. Marvel at vast landscapes littered with rock formations and geysers before embarking your vehicle and arriving back in Reykjavik.
