The Golden Circle is Iceland's most popular day tour, and for good reason. Your Golden Circle experience with Pink Iceland will begin by treading in the footsteps of the Vikings at Thingvellir National park. You’ll walk through the gorges, that are being torn apart as the tectonic plates move away from each other. If you listen closely, you just might hear the echos of the vikings deliberating at this UNESCO world heritage site of the first parliament in the world.
The renowned Geysir geothermal area is not to be missed as you’ll walk the path through boiling ground, but be on your guard as the geyser Strokkur will erupt when you least expect it! These otherworldly geothermal grounds are one of the most visited in Iceland for good reason.
The majestic waterfall Gullfoss is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. Were it not for local hero Sigríður Tómasdóttir who would walk all the way to the capital Reykjavik to argue against a dam being built up-river it would not exist in its current form - and our tour would be considerable less impressive.
We recommend lunch at one of the organic farms in the area. One of which is Efsti Dalur who offer the best ice cream in Iceland in our humble opinion - or maybe you'd rather like to enjoy tomato soup in a greenhouse.
You also have the option of soaking in some geothermal waters at the Fontana Spa, a fantastic modern spa built on the shores of Laugarvatn lake or The Secret Lagoon, the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. In both locations you’ll have the opportunity to relax in hot geothermal waters bubbling up from the ground.
Traveling with Pink Iceland gives a unique opportunity for flexibility, so if something catches your eye, we’ll stop to take a look.
This is a private tour in a luxury SUV with an amazing, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Hotel pickup and drop off included as well as light snacks + drinks in the car. Please note that spa entry and lunch is not included.
We look forward to seeing you at our office, located on Hverfisgata 39. If you are using the map on your phone make sure you choose the address in 101 Reykjavik as more streets in Iceland share the name.
Remember to bring your swimsuits and dress according to the weather. Layers are a great idea!
