Thingvellir National Park (The Tectonic Plates view point)
Geysir Geothermal Area and Haukadalur Valley
Gullfoss waterfall (Hvíta River Canyon)

With our personalized and family-friendly private tour of the Golden Circle in Iceland, we will visit the most popular places and include an off-the-beaten-path experience. This day tour is perfect for couples, solo travelers, and honeymooners who want to add the best of Iceland in one day of touring, with the possibility to include geothermal baths, glacier activities, and many others,

 

National Park Thingvellir. It is a place of significant history and geology known by Iceland's parliament from the 10th to 18th centuries. The park lies in a rift valley caused by the separation of two tectonic plates and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can see the Mid-Atlantic ridge and walk between both tectonic plates. 

Öxarárfoss waterfall: This waterfall is a hidden gem located within Thingvellir National Park. You will see the power of this majestic cascade as it falls into the depths of the Almannagjá Gorge, a geological phenomenon marking the meeting point of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. 

Geysir Geothermal Area: A hot spring in a geothermal area in Haukadalur Valley erupts with thunderous plumes of steam and water soaring into the sky every few minutes up to 30 meters (100 ft). To capture the perfect picture of your visit to this fantastic location, you must stand still for a few minutes while waiting for the water explosion to appear in your photo.

Gullfoss Waterfall: Located in the Haukadalur Valley, Gullfoss, meaning "Golden Falls" in Icelandic, stands as a testament to nature's raw and natural beauty. This iconic waterfall is the most famous falls on the Golden Circle. The drops plunge into a narrow, 32-meter-deep (105-foot-deep) canyon, creating a mesmerizing spectacle of nature's power. The watercourse of the Hvítá River, fed by glacial Langjökull meltwater, carries a mesmerizing blend of turquoise and milky-blue hues, adding to the waterfall's unique beauty.

Brúarfoss waterfall: Translated as "The Bridge Falls," this waterfall is unique. This gem is off the beaten track and not on many agencies' lists, but we believe it's an experience you shouldn't miss. If you do not know what to expect from Bruarfoss Waterfall, read this interesting review from the blog Lost Between Oceans with a great overview of this fantastic waterfall you can visit during our Golden Circle Tour.

 

Kerid crater:

This iconic landmark, affectionately known as the "Eye of the World" for its distinctive circular shape, is a remnant of a volcanic eruption over 3,000 years ago. Measuring approximately 55 meters (180 feet) deep and 170 meters (560 feet) wide, Kerið Crater boasts a stunning cobalt-blue lake that reflects the surrounding red volcanic rock, creating a beautiful photo spot. Its composition is primarily rhyolite, a type of volcanic rock renowned for its striking red hue.
