Full description

Experience the raw natural beauty of Iceland's Golden circle with this day tour from Reykjavik. Feel the rush of watching the Strokkur geyser erupt. Take a swim in the warm relaxing waters of the Sky Lagoon geothermal spa.

Be picked up in Reykjavik and take in the country landscapes as you are transported to Thingvellir National Park. Walk between two continents at the location where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet. Hear stories about Viking history at the site of the first Viking parliament.

Next, head to the geyser geothermal area where you can see the geyser Strokkur erupt every few minutes. 

Marvel at Strokkur as the geyser sends boiling hot water up into the sky. Continue to the Gullfoss waterfall to watch as millions of gallons of ice-cold, glacier-fed water plunges 30 meters into a canyon.

Finish your day with a trip to the Sky Lagoon geothermal spa. Experience Icelandic bathing culture first-hand with a relaxing swim in a 250-foot infinity pool. Admire views of the dramatic coast as you lie back in the warm soothing waters.

Have the freedom to swim up to the cave bar for a refreshing cocktail. Try the revitalizing Icelandic 7-step ritual that includes a fog misting, an indulgent body scrub, and a trip to the steam room.

We had a great day- picked up from hotel on time, fairly easy transfer to bigger coach( only real issue was pushy English tourists that couldn’t wait patiently to get their names checked off!) Bus driver and tour guid were amazing, and we had a wonderful trip out to the Thingvelar national park, the geysir, and the stunning waterfall. After we headed back to the bus hostel, we then had a short break before transferring to another bus for the sky lagoon. It was sensational! The whole experience- the warm water, icy cold dip, sauna etc. was wonderful. I can highly recommend the whole tour, we loved it!

Our guide Karen was brilliant and our driver Milan was very good. Karen knew everything about everything! She was full of information about the things we saw and passed by, and she was funny. We learned much about Iceland and the things we stopped to see were interesting. The most exciting for me was seeing where the two tectonic plates meet. Even though the weather was foggy and rainy at times during the day it just seemed to authenticate the whole Icelandic experience. I was glad that I had brought crampons as it was slippery and icy on some stretches and would advice others to bring them when visiting in the winter. We finished the day at Sky Lagoon which I definitely recommend every body tries! The 7 step spa was lovely and the view from the lagoon and sauna amazing! A really good day!

I have 4 stars cause the bus we were on had broken seats which caused some frustration between passengers. And the first sight thingvellir national park was so dark that you really couldn’t see anything at all so I would recommend bringing a head torch.
