Itinerary

Iceland treasures different attractions and each one is interesting and unique. The Golden Circle Direct tour includes a visit to Geysir geothermal area. The Strokkur is the most popular attraction at this place. The earthquake of 1789 that was active until 1896 had formed this hot spring. This spouting spring erupts at an approximated interval of 8 minutes and spouts 25-35 m. However, this eruption is uncertain and can surprise you!


The Gullfoss waterfall has a special place in the hearts of local people. Icelandic people considered it as the most beautiful waterfall of Iceland. It cascades down and appears that the water is going underground but actually falls in 32 meters deep crevice. The formation of this waterfall is unique because you can view it from above, unlike the other waterfalls. This waterfall is the part of the river Hvita that is a glacial river and gets water from Langjokull glacier.


The Thingvellir is the last stop of Golden Circle that is famous because of varied landscapes. Thingvellir is a place where you are able to see the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates above the land.  This is the UNESCO world heritage site. After the completion of the Golden Circle tour, you will be taken back in Reykjavik. After spending a few hours, the tourist will join the Northern Lights tour.


The Northern Lights tour is approximately three hours long and you will be taken to the best possible location outside the city. These lights are also known as aurora borealis. The interaction of sun particle with the atmosphere near to the North Pole creates these lights. Seeing this spectacular light is a life-changing event. This natural phenomenon is unpredictable. As this is weather dependant tour so there is no guarantee of sightings. However, this tour provides you opportunity to see the Northern Lights at any of the further tours that too free of cost. Return time may change according to the activity.
