Golden Circle

The Golden Circle Tour is the classic thing to do in the Reykjavik area. Coaches run from the BSI bus terminal and take you to:

  • Gullfoss – a 32m two-drop waterfall
  • Geysir – the original geyser doesn’t often erupt any more, but Strokkur next door reliably blows every 6 minutes or so to a height of around 20m
  • Þingvellir National Park – in the rift valley which separates Europe from North America, this was the location of the first Icelandic parliament in 930AD.

Plus you may get taken to other sites as well, such as an Icelandic horse show, a tour of some Icelandic horticulture or a swimming pool/spa, depending on the tour you choose. There are cafes at all three sites and plenty of time is allowed to look round.

Airport Transfers

You will most likely arrive at Keflavík international airport (Southwest Iceland), though there are some rare charter flights from Europe to Akureyri in the North and Egilsstaðir in the East.

From here, buses run regularly into the centre of Reykjavík. This takes around 45 minutes and you will be dropped off at the BSI bus terminal or your hotel (specify when pre-booking online or at the airport).
