Reykjavik Golden Circle Excursion Reviews
If you have just one day in Reykjvick, this is the tour you will want to do. We got an excellent overview of the country's geothermal activity and could see many steam vents all over as we drove through the countryside. Our first stop was Haukadalur a site with over 80 active geysers, hot springs, steam vents and mud pots. Then it was off to Gulfass Waterfall which is similar to America and Canada's Niagara Falls (smaller than Niagara, but still very big). A highlight of the day was straddling the American and Eurasian tectonic plates at Pingvellir -- very interesting!
Wonderful driver-knowledgeable about history and geology. He was on time at the dock, gave us ample time at the Blue Lagoon. Driving tour of the Golden Circle is a wonderful experience.
Port slightly out of town necessitating shuttle bus (expensive) but so is everything in Iceland! Lovely port and well worth a walk around on your own.
Great things to see and wonderful scenery in between. I would strongly recommend this tour if you only have a day in this area as we did
Although we usually arrange for private tours, we booked a six tour package through the cruise line. And in general were not disappointed. The Golden Circle is a must when in Reykjavik. Waterfall is so awesome.
