Enjoy the quintessential Icelandic experiences of visiting the Blue Lagoon and sightseeing around the Golden Circle. This combination tour takes two classic excursions and rolls them into one day.

The excursion begins when you board a bus in Reykjavík and are whisked along the Reykjanes Peninsula to the Blue Lagoon. The lunar landscapes and rows of volcanic ridges that define this stretch are sure to engage you as soon as you set off. Please note that admission is not included in the tour price, and you will need to book in advance.

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular and famed attractions. Azure warm waters, packed with minerals, heal the mind, body and soul, and silica masks are available to revitalise your skin. There are saunas and steam rooms on site, as well as treatments such as massages that you can book. There is also a shop selling unique products from Iceland’s nature, allowing you to take some of the magic here home with you. 

After a full three hours enjoying the spa, you will return to your bus, and begin your journey around the three sites of the Golden Circle.

The first of these is Þinvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you can stand between the continents, and marvel over the ravines torn open in the earth and the clear water springs that fill them. This is the most important historical location in Iceland, being where the nation’s parliament was first founded in 930 AD.

The second destination of the Golden Circle is the Geysir Geothermal Area in Haukadalur Valley. While the Great Geysir is no longer active, the adjacent geyser Strokkur erupts regularly, ejecting a column of water to heights of over 20 metres. The whole region is steaming and seething with geothermal activity.

Finally, you will reach Gullfoss waterfall. One of the most recognisable features in Iceland, this monumental falls tumbles with enormous power into an ancient valley in two tiers. In summer, you can approach a platform to see it so closely that you can feel the mist of the glacial river refreshing your skin.

At the end of the day, you will be returned to the city of Reykjavík.

Don’t miss these two amazing Icelandic experiences. Check availability by choosing a date.
