Golden Circle Day Tour | With the Earthquake Exhibition and an Icelandic Farm

Jump aboard and join us for a minibus tour of the ever popular Golden Circle, a visit to the famed farmhouse of Efsti Dalur, and a stop at an earthquake exhibition where the very powers that shaped this country into existence are put on display.

The first stop of the Golden Circle tour is by the magnificent Gullfoss ('Golden Waterfall') on the Hvita River. Cascading over 30 meters into the gorge below, this aquatic giant's mighty power makes the earth tremble under your feet while you are invited to stand close enough to feel the spray on your face.

Next, we visit Geysir, the world-famous hot spring in the geothermal valley of Haukadalur. Geysir is undoubtedly Iceland's most iconic natural attraction, and although it is not as active as it once was, it's neighbor, Strokkur, maintains a constant display of the earth's unbound energy by shooting boiling water as far as 40 meters into the sky every 10 minutes.

The last stop of the Golden Circle tour is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Þingvellir ('Parliament Fields'), the national reserve in which the Icelandic parliament was founded in 930. Þingvellir is home to the rift valley which marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic range where the American and European tectonic plates are slowly drifting apart, and in the Almannagjá canyon, you can walk between the two continents.

On our way to Geysir, we will visit the farm of Efsti Dalur where you can get coffee and homemade ice cream in the café which is located in the barn. We will also pay a visit to the earthquake exhibition in Hveragerði to learn about the powers that forged the day's sights and see how they have affected the people who live in this area of extreme volcanic and geothermal activity.

Avoid the crowded big bus tours by booking this affordable minibus excursion of the Golden Circle. Check availability by choosing a date.
