What does a tour of the Golden Circle entail? Seeing Iceland in its most natural and beautiful state, by visiting the top attractions of Þingvellir, Gullfoss and the Geysir Geothermal area. You will also get the chance to sample true Icelandic beer at a beer tasting at Iceland’s oldest brewery, Ölgerðin.
The first stop on any Golden Circle tour, even if it includes beer tasting, is to the Þingvellir National Park. If you are looking for some of the best photographic opportunities in Iceland, look no further than Þingvellir. You will be amazed at the vast greenery, the unspoiled nature and a view of Þingvallavatn, which is the largest natural lake in Iceland.
The next attraction that you’ll visit is the stunning Gullfoss waterfall! The one thing that pictures cannot express is the sheer size and might of this waterfall, but when you get to see it close up, you will marvel at the power of nature, as you feel the spray of the glacial water upon your face – even from a distance. Walk down the path towards the waterfall and you can see the mass of water as it pours into the Hvítárgljúfur canyon – a sight that will surely take your breath away!
Your Golden Circle tour doesn’t stop here. Next, you will move on to the Geysir Geothermal area. The steaming vents, sulphurous mud pots are just the beginning as you wait for the real show to begin – the erupting of the geysirs! It can take moments or minutes, but when the spring soars 20m into the air, you are in for a real treat!
If you want to experience the undisturbed nature and dramatic landscape, this is the tour for you. The Golden Circle is one of the best things to do in Iceland, and definitely something to put on your bucket list. Your tour doesn’t stop here. We will let you experience Iceland in the best possible way, by some Icelandic beer-tasting! Journey through the history of brewing in Iceland, taste delicious beer and other beverages from Ölgerðin’s main brewery, as well as a selection of ambitious beers from their award-winning craft brewery.
