Golden circle private tour starting Reykjavik offers the opportunity to see a meeting-point of the continental plates and site of the ancient Icelandic parliament (Thingvellir), a spouting hot spring (Geysir) and a roaring waterfall (Gullfoss), all in one doable-in-a-day loop. Visiting under your own steam allows you to visit at off-hours and explore exciting attractions further afield.
Start from Reykjavik and drive over Mosfellsheidi heather to the Nationalpark Thingvellir where you will see the meeting-point of the continental plates and site of the ancient Icelandic parliament (Thingvellir).
From Thingvellir drive to the nice Village of Laugarvatn where we see natural hot springs and natural steambath build directly on top of a geysir.
After that head to the Geysir Area and enjoy the spouting hot spring Strokkur and also the old Geysir. The Golden Waterfall (Gullfoss) is only a 10 minute drive away from the Geysir area.
On the way to Reykjavik we will see the Faxi waterfall with interesting salmon ladder and few small villages on the South Coast.
There are several options available for a nice lunch break on this tour. On this private tour you will explore the nature on your own pace. A visit to the family owned greenhouse Fridheimar http://fridheimar.is/en is really popular on our tours.
