This tour starts at 9:00 am, where we drive out of Reykjavik and head straight to warm up and soak in the natural hot springs of the Secret Lagoon, Iceland’s oldest natural swimming pool. We will be there early, when it is quietest, allowing us to truly relax and soak in the magic of this wonderful geothermal pool. A great way to start the day!
Afterwards, we will warm up by enjoying a unique lunch inside the tomato greenhouse farm Friðheimar. There they produce over one tonne of tomatoes each day. Having lunch amongst all the tomato plants in the greenhouse is something we are sure you will never forget. We will be able to try their famous tomato soup or grilled tortilla pizza, ravioli pasta, homemade bread, as well as hot beverages. Lunch is included in the price of this tour.
Next we get to witness the force of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls. On sunny days, rainbows appear in the mist of this golden hued waterfall. From there, it is only a short drive to see the wonders of the geothermal area of Geysir, the original exploding geyser, and its surrounding steam vents. After all this we drive onto the famous Þingvellir National Park. This National Park holds historical and geological significance and Þingvellir is the site of the first known parliament in the world, where many of Iceland’s most important decisions were made. It is also a place of incredible beauty, sitting in the rift valley of the separating North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. From there, it’s a short drive back into town, reaching Reykjavik in time for dinner.
Locations visited
Hidden Iceland
Most visitors to Iceland journey around the Golden Circle—the popular sightseeing route that includes Thingvellir National Park, Geysir, and Gullfoss. This guided tour from Reykjavík elevates the experience by adding visits to the Secret Lagoon (a less crowded alternative to the Blue Lagoon, which you visit early, when it is quietest) and lunch at Fridheimar Tomato Greenhouse. Traveling in a group of no more than 12 people ensures a more laid-back experience than some of the bigger tours.
  • Visit the main landmarks on the Golden Circle, as well as some quieter spots
  • Small-group tour, limited to 12 people, ensures a more personal experience
  • Includes entrance to the Secret Lagoon and lunch at Fridheimar Tomato Greenhouse
  • Get insights into each place visited, and local tips, from your guide
