Description

Embark on a day tour around Iceland's Golden Circle to witness 3 natural wonders, which include erupting geysers, thundering waterfalls, and expansive volcanic valleys. Then, unwind from your adventure as you take a dip in the hot springs of Fontana's steam baths.

Make your way to the Geysir geothermal area, where spurting hot springs discharge their warm waters high into the sky. Stand before Strokkur, a fountain geyser, watching as it hurls boiling water up to 230 feet (70 m) in the air, and check out the smaller Strokkur geyser, which erupts every 8 to 10 minutes. The next stop is Gullfoss, a glorious waterfall that tumbles off a steep cliff into the deep, winding gorge where the rushing Hvítá flows below.

Leave the waterfall and head to Thingvellir National Park. As you arrive, listen to your guide explain how this large rift valley is unusual for its tectonic and volcanic activity. Enjoy expansive views of the valley before making your way to the Fontana Baths.

Enjoy the modern complex's hot tubs and steam baths, naturally heated by Icelandic hot springs. Before returning to Reykjavik, sample some typical Icelandic rye bread, which is slow-baked by the natural hot springs themselves for an authentically local treat.

My tour of the Golden Circle was simply amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and funny. There were plenty of stops to get out of the bus and get that perfect picture. The Fontana Baths at the end of the day was such a nice way to end the tour.

Wonderful tour. It gave us a perfect taste of the Icelandic wilderness, and our tour guide was so knowledgeable. Lily & Heidi did an amazing job!! The Fontana hot springs with bread baked in boiling water below the soil was an awesome way to end our Golden Circle tour. I highly recommend this tour as a intro tour to Iceland.

Awesome experience!! The Fontana Baths were great. The only suggestion I would make would be to have a little more time at the national park.
