Golden Circle & Fontana Geothermal Spa
The Golden Circle Classic is our bestselling day tour!
Follow in the footsteps of the vikings of old as you walk down into the rift valley where the American and Eurasian continental plates are literally pulling apart at Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament.
Then at the Fontana Spa located at Laugarvatn, take advantage of the panoramic views while enjoying the natural saunas and bathing in the soothing warm pools of varying temperatures. In the saunas, hearing the boiling water bubble and gurgle below the floors is surreal - you can literally feel the geothermal power underneath the earth.
Afterwards we continue on to the geothermal springs as the ground trembles and hot water spouts spectacularly skywards at the Geysir Hot spring area. Experience the magnificence and power of Gullfoss Waterfall, a set of glacial river cascades falling 32 meters into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.
Join our tour and step aboard one of our new buses, fully equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets for each guest. The tablets provide you with a continuous stream of relevant information along the journey with a GPS synced Audio Guide, available with a choice of 10 languages.
Along the tour our local hosts will make your experience comfortable and are happy to answer any questions you might have about our peculiar country. In each seat you will also find a USB outlet to charge any of your devices.
All in all - it's the perfect combination of activities. Amazing must-do sightseeing, and a relaxing bathe in a geothermal spa set in a gorgeous location!
