On this tour you will see the The old Höfđi house where the all-important summit between the presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbatsjov took place in 1986. Höfđi house is also believed to be occupied by a ghost known as the The White Lady.

The tour proceeds to the the Harpa concert hall and conference centre.

We will check out the City Centre. You will see Hallgrímskirkja church, whose design was inspired by basalt lava columns – a common volcanic rock formation in Icelandic nature.

Day 3. The Great Golden Circle


The Golden Circle Classic Tour (duration 6-7 hours) takes you on a wondrous circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s Southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites.

Ţingvellir National Park is an attraction of great historical, geological and cultural significance. Located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, the UNESCO designated world heritage site is also the birthplace of the Althing—Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD—where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking-age justice.

From Ţingvellir, the tour continues across an area of picturesque scenery to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. Once there, you can take several paths around the two tiers of cascading water to explore several vantage points. Extra time is allotted at this location for a lunch break at Gullfoss Café.

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. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.

While any one of these stops makes incredible fodder for your Instagram feed, they also all have rich histories and fascinating tales, each told with their own nuances by our knowledgeable guides. It’s not just facts and figures that bring these places to life, but the compelling stories our guides have collected over time.

Highlights:
Ţingvellir
Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir Hot Springs
