Discover Iceland's most iconic natural and historical attractions on this all-time best selling tour - with Japanese guidance

What to expect?

The Golden Circle Classic Tour takes you from Reykjavik city to Þingvellir National Park, arguably the most important site in Iceland in terms of history, culture, and geology. A UNESCO world heritage site, Þingvellir National Park, is home to Iceland‘s largest natural lake and the place where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart. Þingvellir is also the birthplace of the Old Icelandic Commonwealth and the Alþingi assembly, where Iceland’s most powerful leaders met to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking-age justice.

From Þingvellir, the tour continues through an area of beautiful scenery towards two of Iceland's most magnificent natural attractions at Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring area. At Gullfoss waterfall, you can take a short walk down a pathway and get right up close to this powerful waterfall and feel the mist of glacial water on your face as it cascades down into the narrow Hvítárgljúfur Canyon. Leaving Gullfoss, lunch break is usually taken ar Gullfoss Cafe or at the Information Centre at Geysir area. Home of The Great Geysir hot spring, which all geysers are named after, this area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colorful algae deposits. It also features one of the world's most reliable fountain geyser, Strokkur hot spring, that every 4 to 8 minutes blasts out a column of superheated water up to 20 meters into the air. From Geysir hot spring area, the return journey takes you past lakes Laugarvatn and Apavatn.
