The Golden Circle Classic Tour takes you from Reykjavik city to Ţingvellir National Park, arguably the most important site in Iceland in terms of history, culture, and geology.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Ţingvellir National Park is home to Iceland‘s largest natural lake and the place where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart. Ţingvellir is also the birth place of the Old Icelandic Commonwealth and the Alţingi assembly, where Iceland’s most powerful leaders met to decide on legislation and carry out brutal viking-age justice.

From Ţingvellir, the tour continues through an area of beautiful scenery towards two of Iceland's greatest natural attractions at Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring area.

At Gullfoss waterfall you can take a short walk down a pathway and get right up close to this powerful waterfall and feel the mist of glacial water on your face as it cascades down into the narrow Hvítárgljúfur Canyon.

Leaving Gullfoss, lunch break is usually taken in Gullfoss Cafe or at the Information Centre at Geysir area.

Home of "The Great Geysir" hot spring, which all geysers are named after, this area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colourful algae deposits. It also features one of the world's most reliable fountain geyser, Strokkur hot spring, that every 4 to 8 minutes blasts out a column of super heated water up to 20 metres into the air.

From Geysir hot spring area, the return journey takes you past lakes Laugarvatn and Apavatn and on to Skálholt Church that for 800 years was the place of religious and political power in Iceland.

Back on the Golden Circle route towards Reykjavik, the tour includes a short stop at the Icelandic Horse Park, Fákasel where you can stretch your legs, grab a cup of coffee or learn about the Icelandic Viking horse breed.
