Description

Discover the enchanting attractions of the Golden Circle, Iceland’s most famous driving route, with this express 6.5-hour bus tour from Reykjavik. Travelers seeking a budget-friendly trip to check off top bucket list sights should book this excursion now.

Your bus departs from Reykjavik’s BSI bus terminal in the morning. You’ll greet your local professional guide, then travel into the heart of Iceland's awe-inspiring natural splendor. This tour promises an enriching day packed with remarkable sights and lasting memories.

This Golden Circle express bus tour offers a magnificent journey through time and nature, revealing the very essence of Iceland. It’s perfect for those looking for an affordable way to see the country’s best attractions or those short on time.

Your first destination is the Geysir geothermal area, where you can stroll through steamy, sulfuric landscapes dotted with bubbling mud pools. The highlight is Strokkur, a geyser that reliably erupts every 5-10 minutes, shooting hot water up to 98 feet (30 meters) in the air. You’ll want to have your camera ready for this one!

Next, you’ll board the bus to the nearby Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland's most spectacular sights. Witness the raw power of the Hvita River as it plunges down a dramatic two-step cascade into a canyon. On a sunny day, you may even see a rainbow in front of the falls. 

Feel the spray on your face as the deafening roar of the water fills your ears, a testament to the untamed power of nature. Enjoy strolling the well-maintained path to view this awe-inspiring spectacle from different angles. Gullfoss is the perfect example of Iceland's accessible rugged beauty.

Then you’ll head to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the final Golden Circle attraction. It's not just the breathtaking vistas that make this place extraordinary. Thingvellir is where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates pull apart, creating a rift valley. 

Your guide will lead you on a walk through the Almannagja gorge, providing insights into Iceland's ancient history and the founding of the world's first parliament, the Althingi, in 930 AD.

After witnessing the three stunning Golden Circle attractions, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik, with an expected arrival time in the late afternoon. The journey offers the perfect time to reflect on the day's beauty and share photos with new friends.

Experience the magical landscapes and unparalleled natural treasures Iceland offers on this 6.5-hour Golden Circle express bus tour from Reykjavik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
