This minibus tour is an express version of the Golden Circle – giving you a great small group experience of the three most popular attractions in Iceland.

You travel through beautiful scenery to Þingvellir National Park (Thingvellir). This is one of the most incredible geological wonders of the world and also the place where Icelandic history was made. The Icelandic Parliament, Alþingi, was founded here in the year 930, making it the oldest continuously existing parliament in the world. The Eurasian and North American tectonic plates have been slowly edging apart creating a stunning rift valley which runs right through Þingvellir. The rugged cliff of this valley forms a dramatic and atmospheric backdrop to the place where the Law Speaker, the supreme Icelandic Chieftain would stand to proclaim the law. A flag marks the law rock (lögberg) where the greatest decisions in the history of the Icelandic people were declared. What an incredible photo opportunity!

Next on the agenda is the Geysir geothermally active area. Great Geysir, the spouting hot spring whose fame gave us the English word ‘geyser´ to describe this activity, is inactive nowadays. You will see Strokkur, a nearby erupting hot spring which erupts huge volumes of superheated water every 8 to 10 minutes. These boiling water spouts often soar to 25 m but sometimes the scalding jets will be propelled 40 m skywards. Watching a geyser erupt is always a stunning and incredible moment.   

The final highlight is the most popular waterfall in Iceland, the magnificent Gullfoss (the “Golden Falls). The river flowing through Gullfoss is the mighty Hvítá (the White River), this river originates at Langjökull glacier, the 2nd largest glacier in Iceland. Feel the spray in the air as the thundering torrent is forced through the canyon, dropping 32 m in two stages, pivoting as it does so. You will see plenty of golden hued spray around Gullfoss, the Golden Falls!


Return Time

The tour returns to Reykjavík around 19:00 – please bear in mind that the weather conditions in Iceland can sometimes cause delays.


Pick-up Information

Pick up is at 12:00 pm from your hotel or a nearby meeting point in Reykjavík. Picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes, your patience is much appreciated.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.


Practical Information

What to bring: Warm layers, weatherproof top layer, headwear, gloves, scarves and hiking or sturdy shoes.

What if I don’t own all of these clothing items?
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process. We do not rent gear from locations, it must be ordered in advance.

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

View our pick-up locations in Reykjavík.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

Can the guide advise if I am eligible for rescheduling the tour and/or a refund?

No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

For further information about the difficulty ratings and descriptions.

 

How does carbon offsetting work?

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.

The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.

Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.

Do you offer a tour that is solely the Golden Circle?

Yes, we offer the tour Golden Circle small group tour which is basically the Golden Circle with some extra stops. This tour is focusing on sightseeing and the history of Iceland. Our stops are Gullfoss waterfall, Þingvellir national park (home to one of the first parliaments of the world), Geysir hot spring area and the historic Skálholt cathedral. View Golden Circle Tours.

What sights will I see on the Golden Circle?

The tour is based around the three most popular attractions in Iceland Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and The Great Geysir. We offer several Golden Circle trips that combine sightseeing with some of our adventure tours.

"Golden Circle Afternoon" | 5 stars By Athena Toliopoulos 18/07/2018
Zachary was an amazing guide and was so informative. He has a great personality and was so much fun to be around! We even saw him two days later picking up other tour participants and we said hello. We both enjoyed seeing all of the sights on this tour and learned so much about Iceland. Definitely a fun small afternoon tour worth the time and money!! Thank you for such a great experience! Nicole and Athena
"Great Tour - Uncomfortable ride" | 4 stars By M G Moharam 13/07/2018
Excellent tour and tour guide. Wish that the stops were longer but I understand that was the express version. However, the bus was extremely uncomfortable. Seats are small and too close to each other. (I am 81 kg and 178cm). The bus appears to be very old.
"Golden Circle" | 4 stars By Jo-Ann Zuk 16/07/2018
Our guide Zachary? Was very good. The weather was awful and unfortunately we did not bring warm enough clothing, so we were quite uncomfortable during the tour. This was no one’s fault but unfortunately it put a damper on our experience. Apparently Iceland is having it’s worst summer ever.
"Golden Circle" | 5 stars By Chris Birkhead 16/07/2018
Despite the poor weather our guide was upbeat and cheerful. It was nice that we could do the tour in an afternoon and early evening and handy to be dropped off at our ship.
"Fabulous Company" | 4 stars By Runa P. 14/07/2018
We booked two different tours with AA. South Coast with Becca was informative, comfortable, and fun. Access to phone charging was a bonus. Whale Watching plus Golden Circle was much the same except Golden Circle needs more time. We did have a problem catching the tour bus for whales as it was not made clear that AA was NOT picking us up but that it was a subcontract for Special Tours Whale Watching and they would transport us to the boat. However the AA staff quickly resolved the problem and made it correct. Heimur was the perfect guide for the Golden tour, even giving us an extra treat of a stop at a working dairy farm with ice cream shop and a chance to pet Icelandic horses. We will use this company again when we return to Reykjavik.
"Good tour" | 5 stars By Sue Bolton 27/06/2018
Fantastic country with wonderful landscapes and amazing sights like the waterfall. The itinery was fine and covered many things in the time available. The guide however did not speak loudly enough for everyone on the tour to hear him. The bus was very cramped. I still really enjoyed it though for the splendor of your beautiful country and we were blessed with amazingly clear and sunny weather.
"Easy no stress planning" | 5 stars By Mili 24/06/2018
This tour company was great. I did 3 tours with them, the Golden afternoon, the landmannalauger hike, and the blue ice trip. It was nice to choose the tours and not have to worry about planning out the logistics of getting to the trailheads. On the Landmannalauger (I think I spelled that wrong) tour, Matt was a great guide. He was very nurturing and making sure we applied sunblock and ate to ensure we were comfortable. Matt provided great stories of elves, trolls, and Icelandic culture. On the Blue Ice tour Ben and Kyle were great fun. They explained the anchor systems to me so, that I could be double sure they were safe. They taught us ice climbing techniques that I have long wanted to learn and provided an all around good time. It’s great to be with guides that can make you laugh when you are in unknown terrain during intermittent rain and snow storms. Overall wonderful tour company and worth the price.!
"Great guide" | 5 stars By JJ 23/06/2018
It is really intreasting and richful tour.
"Golden Circle" | 5 stars By Gillian 19/06/2018
Traveling with my grandson, had rented a car in north, coming to end of our trip and still hadn’t done Golden Circle. I felt it was obligatory, I don’t like bus tours, so Arctic Explorers seemed to offer perfect afternoon tour to get it done! To my surprise I really enjoyed it. ‘E’ our guide was terrific. We had just enough time at Gullfoss to enjoy under falls and see around, did Geysir with enough time to ‘snack up’, talked to some clever Icelandic ponies, who had landed great pr job. Then off to Pingvellir, which was beautiful and the best part of the tour... a place I will re-visit. I liked the small bus in a small group. I think our guide E, really made the tour interesting and I will recommend both Arctic Explorers and short Golden Circle to anyone visiting Iceland.
"Golden Circle Tour" | 4 stars By Piyush Sheth
All went well except the weather. Obviously no one can do much about it!! However carrying a few raincoats in the bus could help tourists encounter unexpected weather at times.
"Excellent tour guide" | 5 stars By Sinead Fallon 31/01/2018
Bjork was our tour guide and she was just fantastic. Her knowledge and humour were great she was friendly and professional. But most of all she was very caring. After a bad fall during the tour, she did everything humanly possible to assist me. She was excellent and I am very grateful.
"Would have been a great tour with better weather" | 3 stars By Meena Mehta 08/02/2018
Our tour guide was awesome. The weather was not cooperating so parts of the tour were definitely more challenging to enjoy. For the times the weather was somewhat cooperative, the beauty of the landscapes were terrific to view and enjoy. At the end, we got to feed some "candy" to a few Icelandic horses and that was a terrific treat to experience. All in all, it was a good tour despite the weather issues. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to see the major sites of the Golden Circle.
"Highly likely. Guides were awesome!" | 5 stars By VRG 22/02/2018
Highly likely. Guides were awesome!
"Golden Circle Express" | 4 stars By Nuala Morris 23/02/2018
Excellent guide and tour. Very knowledgeable. Would not hesitate to recommend Artic Adventures.
"Afternoon golden circle tour" | 5 stars By ANIKO BIBER 04/03/2018
Thank you for the great experience! We took the afternoon tour because we were supposed to land in the morning. unfortunately, the plane was late so we got to reykjavik at last minute to join the tour. our tour guide was great. gave us lots of interesting information and showed us around. pointed out the historic facts about places we visited and gave tips how to take pictures. the only disappointment was that the northern light tour was cancelled because of the bad weather. we should start using the technology to be able to see the northern lights though the cloud cover :) maybe a good idea for kick starter? definitely recommend the tour.
"Amazing Sights & Great Fun" | 5 stars By Fabio 06/03/2018
Loved the way the tour was organised. We were safely escorted by a knowledgeable tour guide to our destinations which was fun and easy-peasy. No tough terrain to negotiate. And Icelandic nature is just stunning!
"Great Tour Guide" | 5 stars By Daniel G 16/03/2018
We had a fantastic tour guide who was very informative and accommodating. We made the regular stops on the golden circle and even had some time for a quick extra stop that made our day and tour more enjoyable. We had plenty of chances to look around for souvenirs and to get food. I would recommend the company and our guide for anyone looking for a great tour.
"Golden Circle afternoon tour" | 4 stars By Brianna 17/03/2018
The timing of this tour was ideal for us since we landed early in the morning. We underestimated how windy Iceland can be and froze a little bit going through this tour! Overall, the sights were beautiful. I just wish our guide gave us a little more information throughout the drive. I would recommend this for anyone trying to squeeze in as much as they can during a short trip to Reykjavik!
"The Golden Circle tour" | 5 stars By Dariusz Myszkiewicz 25/03/2018
One of the best tours in Iceland.Beautifull views mountains volcanos waterfalls geysers.Must see places. Defo will recommend to anyone.
"The tour was great" | 5 stars By Helen Hendley 28/02/2018
The tour was great and gave us just enough time at each stop.
"I took three tours with Arctic Adventures and all three were fabulous" | 5 stars By Judith Gilbert 16/03/2018
I took three tours with Arctic Adventures and all three were fabulous. The sights were awesome, incredible, and the guides were fantastic. They all told so much about Iceland - so much more than just sightseeing. On the Golden Circle Tour I learned so much about geology and the seismic activity in Iceland. On the Aurora tour I learned a tremendous amount about the lights and cosmic activity. And on the two-day South Coast tour I learned so much about glaciers and waterfalls. The guides were great, friendly, polite, courteous, and very safe drivers. Thank you so so much, Arctic Adventures - and especially to my guides Aevar, Klemmi and Zacho - for making this truly an extraordinary experience, one that I will never forget.
"the tour itself is amazing" | 4 stars By Maria de Lourdes Moreno 03/03/2018
Our guide was kind but with his accent I did not understand almost anything that he said. He only gave us 20 minutes for Gulfoss, which I think was not enough.. I think the time spent in each place can be distributed better. Although, the tour itself is amazing, due to the magnificent places.. your tours were great, this is just for you to optimize your service.. thank you, I had an overall amazing experience with you...
"Golden Circle Tour" | 4 stars By James Derrett 31/03/2018
A great way to see some of the highlights when staying in Reykjavik. Our guide was Icelandic and very knowledgeable. We had plenty of time at Gullfoss and Geysir although the time at Pingvellir was a little rushed. Our guide also stopped so we could buy food and pet the Icelandic horses and we went to Efstidalur as an extra stop to see the calves and buy delicious icecream.
"Pleasant and Responsive" | 5 stars By Abby Heaslet 02/04/2018
The tour guide was very knowledgable and pleasant. He gladly took pictures for us and shared stories about both the tour components and his personal experiences growing up in Iceland. Additionally, Arctic Adventures was extremely responsive and easy to work with. We had a very hard time getting answers from vendors in Iceland, but not Arctic Adventures. They were great to work with and provided a great tour.
"Good tour" | 4 stars By William 05/04/2018
Good tour
"An excellent tour" | 5 stars By Janet Burtenshaw 11/04/2018
We were recommended this afternoon Golden Circle Tour by a friend who had been on it. Our guide, Tomas, was excellent and made the tour really interesting. The minibus was very comfortable and it was nice being with a smaller group rather than on a big coach. We had enough time at each stop to see everything and all the stops were excellent. Thanks to Tomas for doing an extra little stop at the lovely horses which my daughter really enjoyed. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
"Fantastic guide" | 5 stars By Jakob 16/04/2018
Fantastic guide - she was amazing. Lots of positive exciting stories and positive energi :-)
"Hop on - Hop off a service?" | 5 stars By Sam 20/04/2018
I think it would be beneficial to have a hop on / hop off service. I wanted to spend more time at some parks, but I knew we were limited in time. When I did the northern lights, there were two Arctic Adventure trucks in my tour and I think some people wanted to stay, while others wanted to leave and it would have been useful at the Golden Circle too. All the buses have WiFi, so you can easily alert people when it’s time to leave, if there’s an option for anothe bus, etc. that people could use via app.
"Golden Circle Express" | 5 stars By Sofia 17/05/2018
I really enjoyed this tour! Although it was only half day, we still got to see all the main attractions. Our guide Byork was awesome and very helpful; great driver! I would definitely recommend this tour if you don't have enough time for the full one.
"Golden Circle" | 5 stars By Gillian 19/06/2018

"Golden Circle tour" | 4 stars By Alison Lee 15/07/2019
I did this tour with Arctic Adventures, along with their South Coast tour and Laugavegur trek. All were well-organised, with small groups and knowledgable guides. I would definitely use them again.

"Circle Tour" | 5 stars By Kristin Miller 24/07/2019
We can’t say enough about Pedro!! He was very prompt, safe and knowledgeable!! Throughout the entire tour he had stories, got to know us and was funny!! We saw beautiful waterfalls, geysers and a few spots where Game of Thrones was filmed. Great tour with an awesome guide!
"Best use of an afternoon" | 5 stars By Erica 27/07/2019
Sure, we could have spent more time at each stop, but this was the perfect half day tour for the stop over traveller. Tour guide was great. Time was sufficient. And Iceland is amazing.
"Great tour for those arriving by flight in the morning." | 4 stars By Laura 03/08/2019
We joined the Golden Circle afternoon tour since our flight arrived the same day in the morning. As our guide Heimur explained, since it is the afternoon tour, it's an express tour to visit the main sites around the Golden Circle. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to visit extra stops such as an ice cream farm (the ice cream was delicious!), a stop to see icelandic horses, and a photo stop at Faxi waterfall. The guide was very kind, after a tourist on our minibus tour told him she had problems trying to find a rain poncho in the shop (it was drizzling that day), he returned with one and gave it to her even when she asked to pay him back. My only suggestion is that the stop at Thingvellir could be a bit longer.
"Golden circle" | 5 stars By Kate 03/09/2018
Thoroughly enjoyed the golden circle experience. While the tour bus was punctual & comfortable, we would have enjoyed more comprehensive local information & enthusiasm from the tour guide/driver along the way.
"A rough day" | 5 stars By David E Brackfield 04/09/2018
Even though the weather was bad we had a great time. Guide was awesome,sights were amazing will be back
"Friendly and knowledgeable staff" | 5 stars By Kevin Coffey 18/09/2018
I found the tour excellent value for money and the staff friendly and knowledgeable about the sites visited. I would recommend Artic Adventures when organising tours in Iceland.
"Half day Golden Circle - See it!" | 4 stars By Norma 02/10/2018
So glad I added this to my last day in Iceland! The half day Golden Circle tour has three very amazing and interesting sites to see. The afternoon went quickly though I found the overall time given to it was enough. If I were to change one thing I'd take more time at Gullfoss for several reasons. It is one of the few places with a gift shop, it is a long walk, and it's a place where one needs time to absorb the incredible beauty of these falls, as well as snap many photos. We had 35 minutes at Gullfoss and 45 minutes at Geysir. Geysir is mildly smelly and once it blows (every 4-8 minutes I think) then a short walk around the geothermal field here is sufficient. I don't remember the driver's name but he told many folk stories and answered lots of questions. He was pleasant and made the trip especially enjoyable. This was a great way to spend the afternoon and is a must-see! If time permits and you like to walk, or enjoy taking lots of photographs I'd say do the full day. The views are worth it. This was my third tour with Artic Adventures. Each tour was well-organized, on time from pick-up until the end, and worth taking. Thank you!
"Excellent afternoon on the Golden Circle" | 5 stars By Margie C 07/10/2018
We so enjoyed our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable- she was very clear in her explanations. She was friendly and helpful and an excellent driver. We saw such beauty in the Icelandic countryside. The ice cream stop was fun. All in all an excellent afternoon.
"Amazing Golden Circle" | 5 stars By Sue Schlange 11/10/2018
Our tour guide Holly was a delight. She shared many facts about Iceland as well as her own experience of living in this beautiful country. While the afternoon tour was brief (compared to the classic tour), it hit the main spots and we thoroughly enjoyed having our morning free before the tour. Thank you Holly and thank you Arctic Adventures for a wonderful afternoon.
"Golden Circle Tour" | 5 stars By Marilyn 18/10/2018
Very enjoyable tour. Our tour guide, Sven, (not sure of spelling) was very informative. He talked the whole way explaining your beautiful country. He would even check up on us while we were walking around to be sure we were enjoying the sites

"Great afternoon tour!" | 5 stars By Katelyn 29/11/2018
Great tour if you don’t want to take a long, all day tour. Plenty of time at each stop to see the major sites & our tour guide was very knowledgeable & friendly. Loved the minibus size as well so you weren’t on a huge motor coach.
"Tour guide was great!" | 5 stars By Jacqueline 16/12/2018

Joined the Golden Circle Afternoon with blue lagoon tour. The tour is great. Unfortunately the tour was a bit rush due to the very short daylight time. But highly recommend to join!
"Wonderful tour with Svenni" | 5 stars By Ronald van Erven 19/01/2019
"The tour was very enjoyable with our tour guide Svenni. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and showed us all the amazing stops along the tour while giving us plenty of time to enjoy them. The accommodations were topnotch and the food was wonderful. It was also easy to make changes to the tour which were necessary due to the weather. Thank you for this great experience of Iceland, we will be back for sure!"
"Wonderful experience" | 5 stars By Elisa 20/01/2019
We enjoyed the small bus coziness with such a nice and knowledgable tour guide. The places visited were all spectacular. We felt very safe st all times. We highly recommend it.

"Guide was superb" | 5 stars By Tom Turner 22/02/2019
Our guide for the Golden Circle Tour was Johann, a true Icelander, was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. You could ask no more. The tour was amazing just like the whole of Iceland.
"Friendly" | 5 stars By Soha Khan 28/02/2019
Our tour guide Hamier was unbelievably friendly, polite and knowledgeable. The tour bus was comfortable and the ride was scenic and safe. Thank you!
"Fantastic tours" | 5 stars By Hannah Stevens 13/03/2019
Would highly recommend artic tours, all tour guides were really good particularly Hans he spoke to us throughout the whole day giving us all different information he really made the day even more enjoyable. All transport was on time and everyone was so welcoming. Would definitely use again if we visited to Iceland again
"Absolutely Amazing" | 5 stars By Kaitlyn Harvey 01/04/2019
"I did some research before booking our trips and found that the smaller mini bus tours were better than the coach tours (if you're willing to stretch your budget a bit more!) Our tour guide, Nick, was the perfect guide. He gave us lots of information about the history of Iceland, he even tied in Icelandic music with his little history lesson! He even made a short stop at the end of the tour, to feed some Icelandic horses. Brilliant trip, would definitely recommend Arctic Adventures, especially their small mini bus tours."
"6-hour Golden Circle Tour" | 5 stars By Nancy O'Donnell 03/04/2019
We chose this tour specifically because it started later in the day (at noon) and was a condensed version of the Golden Circle Tour (only 6 hours vs. 10). We loved everything about this tour from leaving the driving to our awesome tour guide and the 2 extra stops he squeezed in on the way home: dairy farm so we could get ice cream and a stop to feed the Icelandic horses. Time & money well spent!
"Amazing Tour" | 5 stars By Sheiva S 15/04/2019
I really liked how the groups were small. I had taken a tour with another company and Iceland and it was massive. I really enjoyed the small group and all the facts we learned about Iceland in our tour. I recommend to anyone.
"Afternoon Golden Circle Tour" | 5 stars By Susan White 20/04/2019
Excellent trip. Our guide, Yannis, gave informed and interesting commentary, not only on the sights we saw but also on the history, culture, people and infrastructure of Iceland. Highly recommended, this is a compact tour ideal when your time in Iceland is short.
"Great day!" | 5 stars By Helen McDonnell 25/04/2019
"Very enjoyable tour, cave was really great! 2 tour guides were very good. Scenery was just amazing, Golden circle tour guide was very informative too. Great to see it all in reality! The stop over at the bakery was a bit too long, that would be the only criticism. Thank you for a very enjoyable day! Would defo recommend the tour. Helen & Bill"
