Full description

Visit Iceland’s natural wonders on this 8-hour minibus tour accompanied by a professional guide. The Golden Circle route covers a 300km loop from Reykjavík to central Iceland and back. Visit Thingvellir, a pivotal landmark that connects all the major events in the founding of the Icelandic commonwealth. It’s also the best place on earth to view the North Atlantic divergent ridge. Stop at Fríðheimar farm, owned by the same family since 1995. The family, besides growing tomatoes and cucumbers, are passionate about horses. Enjoy a truly unique experience and meet the Icelandic horses up close on a visit to the stables. You might get a chance to pet them and maybe take a selfie! Lunch (at your own expense) will be held in the greenhouse where you will have the possibility to purchase local products on the menu after a visit of the stables. See Gullfoss, which is considered the most beautiful of Iceland’s 30,000 waterfalls. You’ll also see Kerið, a striking crater lake filled with milky blue-green water and surrounded by stark black and deep red slopes.

A fantastic tour! Fiancée and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Pick up was fairly straightforward (from Bus Stop 1), thereafter stopped at a gas station where we were transferred onto a smaller bus. Our guide and driver, Howser, was excellent and made the whole day engaging and fun. He clearly knows his stuff, his passion for Iceland shines through and all delivered with a good sense of humour. Tomato farm and horses was a nice way to break up the day. Our stops were fairly short at ~35mins each (longer for lunch at the farm); but necessary given short daylight hours in winter and a packed itinerary. Would highly recommend doing the smaller tour group. We had a few miserable Americans who complained every time the world was not revolving around them, but nothing can be done about that!

Small group tour which allowed the timing for the day to be a little more flexible. The tour guide provided lots of opportunities to stop and look at the magnificent views of Iceland on route to the locations. His local knowledge was fantastic and very informative. Well worth the time and money would definitely do it again.

This was an amazing tour - we loved every minute of it! The scenery was wild and beautiful and sunrise was breathtaking. The tomato farm and Icelandic horse show were interesting and unique, a wonderful lunch stop. We had enough time at each attraction and Omar was both helpful and very knowledgeable, entertaining us with many interesting facts about Iceland. His love for his country is very apparent. Highly recommend this tour - well managed and memorable!
