Spicy Golden Circle | Minibus Tour

It’s also possible to Discover Iceland and the Golden Circle on a minibus tour, if you prefer. We believe there’s great value to this tour, since you’ll get to see the main highlights, but also a good number of other stops. Read on!

We begin with the intensely red pseudo craters of Rauðhólar and here you’ll learn about volcanoes and eruptions. Then we’ll take you to the ocean, to a desolate place, the black sandy beach around a river delta. This is a time to enjoy open spaces and solitude.

Then we go to see the famous Crater Kerið (a small entrance fee applies), then Waterfall Faxi. The mighty Gullfoss Falls will be our next stop. Next will be the Geyser Strokkur, which erupts every 5-8 minutes.

Our last stop is Thingvellir National Park, a location very dear to Icelanders due to the contribution it’s given to our history. It’s also a tremendously important place, geologically speaking, since here it’s possible to see the tectonic plates of two continents, splitting apart. And then, we return to Reykjavik and drop you off at your hotel, hoping you’ve enjoyed our minibus tour just like kids 🙂

These tours are long, but the day really flies by. This also provides the best of both worlds if you’re conflicted about Golden Circle vs. Southern Coast […]”. Continue reading…
