Explore the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon with this unique combo tour!

We pick you up at your hotel, guesthouse or at one of the bus stops downtown Reykjavík in the morning.
The pickup is always between 8:00 and 8:30, but you have to be ready at 8 o’clock.

Golden Circle



The first stop of the day is the UNESCO national park Þingvellir, which is full of history and natural beauty. This place has a special place in the hearts of all Icelanders. During the viking times, here was founded the first parliament in the world.

We will have enough time to walk around and explore this wonderful place. Take a walk in the rift valley, where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are pulling apart.

In the area there are restrooms and coffee shops for visitors.




The wonderful Gullfoss is one of the most beautiful waterfalls on earth. It is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, located close to the second biggest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull.

From the panoramic viewpoint, you will see the fresh glacier water falling down 32 meters into the canyon.

Gullfoss is beautiful from all angles. In the summertime it is possible to walk all the way down to Gullfoss and feel its power and spraying water in the air.



Next stop is Geysir, the most famous hot spring in the world.

Geysir is located only 8 minutes drive from Gullfoss and is our third big attraction of the day.

The only active erupting hot spring in the area is “the son of Geysir”, called Strokkur. Strokkur erupts every 3 to 8 minutes and goes as high as 35 meters.

At Geysir we will stop for lunch. Various food options are available there, but your can also bring own lunch with you.

We will have time to check out the hot springs (no bathing allowed!).


Before we head up the Secret Lagoon, we stop at one of the hidden gems in the area, Faxi waterfall.

Faxi is a small waterfall, sometimes called the little brother of Gullfoss. After checking out the waterfall, we will give you a little taste of Icelandic snacks: real Icelandic flatbread with smoked lamb and one of the oldest drinks in Iceland, called “Malt”.


Secret Lagoon

The last stop of the day is the Secret Lagoon. Known in Iceland as the “Old pool”, it is the oldest geothermal pool in the country, founded in 1891.

As we visit earlier than any other tour to the Secret lagoon, we will have a cozier and less crowded experience.

Remember to bring towels and swimsuits with you. Otherwise it is possible to rent them out at an extra cost at the lagoon.

We stop in the pool for about 90 minutes.
