Prepare to be enchanted as we venture to the captivating Geysir geothermal area. Witness the exhilarating spectacle of Strokkur, a geyser that erupts every five minutes, shooting a powerful jet of steam and water into the sky. Immerse yourself in this natural wonder, capturing unforgettable moments and embracing the sheer energy of the Earth.
Continuing our journey, we encounter the majestic Gullfoss waterfall, a true marvel of nature.

Gaze upon the visually striking caldera, a testament to the awe-inspiring forces that shape our planet.
We put the full emphasis on nature and culture as we tell stories when we ease through the surroundings in a small group. The tour is operated in a minibus and we focus on not exceeding more than 19 people. This way the guide can connect to all passengers and a much nicer vibe is created during the day.
The Golden Circle is Iceland's most popular route and it is not by any coincidence. The route lies not so far from the capital and easily offers a variety of natural scenery to explore as well as many stories from the settlement to our times.
