The Golden Circle - Tours | Icelandair
Pingdom Check

The Golden Circle tour brings you to three of Iceland’s most beautiful and famous natural attractions. Plus, it goes without saying this eight-hour tour is a great picture-taking opportunity, perfect for sharing with family and friends back home!

When you book the Golden Circle tour, you’ll see the spectacular Geysir geothermal area: a field abundant in hot springs, exploding geysers and bubbling mud pools. Then spend time at the majestic, dual-folding Gullfoss - the queen of Iceland's waterfalls -  before a visit to Þingvellir National Park, to many Icelanders the most important region in their country’s history. This beautiful area was the site of Iceland’s old national assembly, founded in 930. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible here as well, which has slowly pulled Iceland apart along tectonic plates for thousands of years.

You will also visit Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation centre, one of Iceland's biggest greenhouses, to learn about growing vegetables with the aid of geothermal heat which Iceland has in abundance. Friðheimar is a proud winner of the 2017 Innovation Awards granted by the Icelandic Travel Industry Association.
