Golden Circle Private Day Tour | With Optional Snowmobiling Adventure

Groups private guided tours in a Luxury Van : Minibus : Super jeep.

On the booking page you can choose a Super Jeep day trip for an extra cost.

See Iceland’s most popular attraction, the Golden Circle, and do so in style. Let your private guide for the day whisk you away to Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall, as well as a few lesser-known spots. Thrill-seekers can even add on an exciting snowmobile excursion to this tour which is suited for all wishing to travel in comfort and luxury.

You’ll be picked up by either a super jeep or a minibus, depending on the size of your group. You can start in the morning, but if you'd rather sleep in, you can contact the provider, and they will see if they can postpone the departure time. After all, this is a private tour, and your comfort is key.

From Reykjavík, you will make your way south until you are greeted by pillars of white steam at the edge of the town of Hveragerði, the first stop of the day. Hveragerði is set in a high geothermal area, and the heat from the ground is harnessed to heat up several greenhouses located in the town, allowing the townsfolk to grow tomatoes, cucumbers and even bananas. 

From there you’ll move on to the beautiful Kerið crater lake where they aquamarine water is surrounded by steep walls of red volcanic rock. The contrasting colours are quite stunning, and the lake is equally striking in both the summer and the wintertime.

You'll continue onwards to Skálholt, a place with a history spanning over a thousand years but is now a site of culture and spirituality. The final stop before the famed Golden Circle is the beautiful but often overlooked, Faxi waterfall, named after a horse's mane. 

Then it is off to Gullfoss, Iceland’s most beloved waterfall. Freezing water from the Hvítá river plunges down two ‘steps’ into a 32-metre canyon created in the last ice-age. If you want to add a little twist to your holiday, you can board a large truck which will take you to Langjökull glacier where you will whizz across the ancient ice on a snowmobile. 

From there you’ll move on to the erupting geysers at Geysir geothermal area. There you’ll find Strokkur, one of Iceland’s most active geyser. Strokkur erupts every 5-10 minutes, creating a water column that can reach up to 40 metres. You can also find hot springs, fumaroles and bubbling mud pools dotted around.

The last stop before returning to Reykjavík is Þingvellir National Park, where Vikings founded Iceland’s parliament, Alþingi, in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir is located in a valley between two tectonic plates, the North-American and the Eurasian. As the plates move, they slowly pull the earth apart, creating cracks and canyons in the region.
