Golden Circle, Kerid Volcanic Crater, and Blue Lagoon Day Trip from Reykjavik

740 reviews
This day trip to the Golden Circle from Reykjavik is a stress-free way to see some of Iceland’s most beautiful attractions. Don’t worry about mapping out an itinerary: Let your guide and driver take you to Kerid crater, the Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss waterfall, and more. Plus, your guide explains local history and geology that you wouldn’t learn traveling on your own.

Just came back from trip to Iceland. Started at Blue Lagoon (it was great and lots of fun), to Reykjavík for 3 days and then counterclockwise on the the Ring Road. We detoured for one night in Arnarstapi to see sights in the Snæfellsnes peninsula (amazing). The Ring Road is easy driving as long as you keep eyes on road with some easy switchbacks or no super steep mountain passes. Having said that, most of the time there are no guard rails, the road tends to be up above 8-12 feet above ground (we saw two cars and an 18-wheeler that gone off the side) and as long as you don’t hit a snow storm - which we did. Drove for 1.5 hours in heavy snow, sometimes losing control of the car. Needless to say, drove very slow. Halfway into it, plows were clearing one side of the road so we were driving on the cleared opposite side until we saw cars coming our way, moved over and continued. I am from Miami and not used to mountain driving and I did fine. The Ring Road takes you through some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen: lava fields covered in moss, fjords, mountains, valleys - endless views. I would do it again in a heart beat. Hope this helps anyone planning. I’ll be glad to share more info.

So much to see, easy to navigate and we drove round in our rental. Great first day on the road then we moved onto Road 1 and circumnavigate Iceland.

If you plan to take a ring road tour, I recommend that you go with Arctic Adventures instead of Gadventures(G). G uses Arctic Adventures to run their tours in Iceland. Arctic Advenutures own tours are cheaper & better. The Best of Iceland 7-day tour from Gadventures is actually 5 days of touring. In contrast, the 6-day Around Iceland Adventure from Arctic Adventures(A) gives you full 6 days of guided touring, goes to more places, includes the glacial hike in the price and is cheaper (even accounting for 2 extra nights of lodging from Gadventures). There are two things that G tour has but A does not have is Bogarfjorour and Solheimar Ecovillage. To go to Bogarfjorour(B) means a detour with poor roads and it adds little to the trip. B is for seeing puffins & hiking. Puffins are gone after mid-August. Among the 100-110 Solheimar residents, only 45 are disabled. They get social benefits from the government. This type of visit is not the same as supporting a place in a 3rd world country. In my opinion these two items make the G tour even less appealing than the A tour.

I get major motion sickness and this road isn't too windy. You can drive all of Ring Road in around 20 hours. You'll have plenty of options for hiking and adventures along the road to stop along the way. They don't have a lot of gas options on the north side of the country so be sure to stop whenever you can to get gas. We really liked the Southern part of Iceland along Ring Road because that seem to have more adventure options for us. All in all, beautiful and a well maintained road.
