Description

Head off on the ultimate Icelandic experience with one of our knowledgeable guides. On this awesome trip, you’ll be able to explore the famous Golden Circle which covers some of the country’s most exceptional landscapes. Plus, you’ll get to explore the underground world in the Leiðarendi Cave.

The Golden Circle Tour is an unmissable attraction covering three locations, the Þingvellir National Park,  the Haukadalur geothermal active valley and Gullfoss Waterfall.

We’ll start at Þingvellir which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Iceland’s first parliament, Althing, was formed here back in the year 930 so it holds important historical significance. It’s also geologically a really interesting place as there are two tectonic plates that meet there to create interesting landscapes.

From there we’ll move on to the Haukadalur Valley to see the impressive  Geysir and Strokkur geysers. The last stop on the circuit will be the breathtaking Gullfoss Waterfall.

For the caving portion of this awesome day out, you’ll head to Leiðarendi Cave. This was a lava tube that was formed thousands of years ago from thermal activity. It’s 900 meters long and has a couple of tight spots which you will need to crouch down to walk through. There is even a bit of light crawling. It’s great fun. In the cave, you’ll get to see mesmerizing stalactites and shelves and learn all about the geology of the region.

So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch today and organize your full-day of spectacular Icelandic nature around the Golden Circle and beyond.

If you would prefer to just spend a half-day and head to the cave, be sure you check out our half-day trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
