Amazing! 4.6/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 6 Expedia Verified Reviews

Drive along the famous Golden Circle route for a perfect introduction to some of the most important historical sites and natural phenomena that the country has to offer. From tectonic plates to dramatic geyers, this tour captures Iceland's genuine natural beauty.

Your tour begins with a scenic drive to Þingvellir—a unique National Park and UNESCO World Heritage site where the tectonic plates of America and Europe meet. From there, continue to the gushing waters of Gullfoss Waterfall, which tumbles down a deep canyon that runs perpendicular to the flow of the river. Stand in awe and absorb the beauty of this striking Icelandic icon.

Your afternoon carries on with a visit to the geothermal valley of Haukadalur, home to erupting hot springs. Although the Great Geysir is inactive, you do get to see the famous spouting fountain geyser of Strokkur, whose waters erupt every few minutes and shoot skyward up to 50–65 feet (15–20 m). Make sure to capture these fascinating surges of water—a great photo opportunity!
