The Golden Circle & Northern Lights - Combo Deal



See Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall and the northern lights on this amazing combo tour.


The Golden Circle & Northern Lights

Explore a few of Iceland‘s most famous landmarks on Golden Circle Direct as well as go on a search for the northern lights in one day. Begin the day at 12:30 with a Golden Circle tour, where you will visit Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall, and Þingvellir National Park.

Geysir the Geyser

Geysir is the place from which all other geysers in the world get their name. The famous Geysir does not often erupt anymore but the smaller, yet very impressive Strokkur erupts every 4-8 minutes and shoots a column of water up to 40 meters up in the air.

The Glorious Gullfoss

Gullfoss waterfall is a part of the glacial river Hvítá which gets its water from Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland. The step-waterfall is quite the sight, and from many viewpoints, it looks like the waterfall falls straight into an abyss, but in reality, it falls into a crevice that is 32 meters deep.

The Magic of Thingvellir (Þingvellir)

The last stop of the day is at Þingvellir which is known for being one of the very few places in the world where you can see the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates above ground (other places are all in Iceland). The park is a UNESCO world heritage site. You will arrive back in Reykjavík at 16:30.

Experience the Northern Lights

You will have a few hours to spend before you join our northern lights tour at 20:00 (16 October – 28 February), 21:00 (1 March – 14 March) or at 22:00 (25 August – 15 October & 15 March – 15 April). The three-hour-long northern lights tour will take you out of the city for the best possible view of the lights. The northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. The locations visited during the northern lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions.

Because this tour is weather-dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you do not see any northern lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge. Indicated return times may vary if the activity is good, but we should be back in Reykjavík three hours after the tour starts.
