What to expect

The Golden Circle is a popular route that passes by a series of the most remarkable and diverse sites in the Southwest of Iceland. If you are only doing one tour in Iceland, this is the one. During one day, you’ll see amazing nature and unforgettable sights.

In the Geysir geothermal area, you will get the chance to observe the boiling hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes.

The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls, is only a 7-minute drive from Geysir – located in the glacial river Hvítá. Its elegant and majestic form is like no other. See how the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32-meter-deep canyon.

Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located at the intersection of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates but also a place full of history. Hear stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. The national park was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural value in 2004.

Additionally, the tour includes a visit to the volcanic crater lake Kerið.

TUI Into Langjökull Glacier

In 2010, the first manmade Glacier Ice Cave was carved to take people inside the heart of this remote glacier ice cap. What's more, you'll also visit the Hraunfossar Waterfall.After arriving at Husafell base, you'll climb onto a rugged snow truck to start your ascent to the ice cave, exploring the rugged glacial landscape along the way. An experienced guide will lead the way inside, where you'll see the magnificent blue ice buried deep beneath the surface that stays at a constant temperature of 0°.All this is combined with stunning waterfalls and panoramic views of the mountains as you make your way north to the glacier.
