Golden Circle, Fontana Thermal Baths, Dinner and Northern Lights Day Trip from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Get picked up in a minibus from your Reykjavík hotel. Pickups happen just before noon.
    Start off by making a stop at Fridheimar Farm (Friðheimar) to try their loved tomato soup and freshly baked bread. Then, it’s off to the Golden Circle where you’ll want to have your camera ready to take some photos.
    Visit the Strokkur geyser, and see it spout hot water up 49 to 98 feet (15 to 30 meters). Then, admire the Gullfoss waterfall, which is a big traveler’s attraction of Iceland. The waterfall has an almost stairway-like cascade that flows into the Hvítá River.
    Afterward, get back in your minivan until you reach Efstidalur (Efsti-Dalur I). Sample a few of the farm’s products, such as skyr (a kind of thick-set yogurt) and ice cream. 
    Head on over to the Fontana Baths (Laugarvatn Fontana), and relax in the hot waters of the geothermal spa before dinnertime.
    Your 2-course dinner will be served at Lindin, a local restaurant. Soon after you've finished eating, your hunt for the Northern Lights begins as everyone on your tour keeps their eyes peeled on the ride back to the hotels.

    Hugely impressed by this tour, led by the superb Margerete, who kept it exciting and informative throughout. Great blend of sights and surprises, thoughtfully put together and with real insights, flexibility and attention to detail. Highly recommended. Tom Fletcher (plus parents and brother)

    Just to be clear, I very rarely go out of my way to review anything. This was one of the best tours I've been on, hands down. Jon deserves a shout-out for being a phenomenal tour guide: A perfect blend of fun discussion, wit, and...More

    We booked the Golden Circle/Magical Nights tour and I have to admit I was very anxious about booking a 10-12 hour tour. It seemed like a very long time but in reality I think our tour lasted close to 12-13 hours and we enjoyed every...More

    This is a really great tour and a really great company. Small group, there were nine of us. Couldn't have a asked for a better guide in Harold. He's a geologist and was wonderfully verbal as we were driving along. Talk about an enhanced experience!...More
