A visit to Iceland's Parliament Plains, Geysir Geothermal Area and Golden Waterfall
The Golden Circle is the most popular tour in Iceland and for a good reason! You'll see some spectacular and iconic Icelandic sights relatively close to each other.
The 250 km (150 mile) route includes the Parliament Plains National Park (Þingvellir) which was the site of the ancient Iceland Parliament established in 930 AD. It also includes a spouting spring at the Geysir geothermal area, and a magnificent waterfall Gullfoss (Golden waterfall).

We loved our tour of the Golden Circle with Stefan!! He picked us up at the port at 7:30 on the morning of our disembarkation and left us at the airport promptly at 3:00 to check in for our flight home. In between we not only saw all of the most famous sights of the Golden Circle but learned a lot about the history and customs of Iceland. We were four guests in our seventies and Stefan was very attentive to the dynamics of our group and flexible in his pacing. We would all highly recommend this guide!!
