Activity description

The Golden Circle is a “must-do” experience in Iceland. We take you to the three most visited natural nature attractions in the southern part of Iceland, Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Area and Þingvellir National Park. On the trip, you experience some of the highlights in Iceland when we drive along glacial rivers and beautiful landscapes.

Your trip to Iceland won’t be completed without a visit to those sites. The tour guides are local experts that know the area like the back of their hands and are storytellers at heart.  Being a small group guarantee tour we can assure you that the tour guide has time for all the questions from each participant.

This Golden Circle Tour from Reykjavik combines fragile nature, saga, powerful geothermal wonders. Silfra is a fissure between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. Silfra constantly fills with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava rock for 30 years. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates is therefore filled with the clearest water on our planet, allowing for over 100 meters visibility.


On the snorkeling tour, we will dress you in a dry suit and guide you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. Floating through Silfra's crystal clear water is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colours, and sensations of flying provide a very unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget.
