An amazing small group guided tour to the Golden Circle with a river rafting activity.

Experience Icelandic nature’s power! This guided tour takes you on a fantastic tour in a small group to the famous Golden Circle and for a river rafting activity!

What will you see?

Thingvellir National park is your first visit. Here you witness the aftermath of the continental drift. You see fissures, crevasses, and waterfalls while taking in the dramatic beauty of the place. Thingvellir is also an important historical site. It is indeed here that the oldest known parliament was created, back in the year 930.

Next, you visit the Haukadalur geothermal area spread over 3 km.  Here, the geyser Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes and shoots its warm water column up to 10 to 20 meters high. Be ready to capture this unique moment! At Geysir, you also find boiling mud pits and fumaroles. The water temperature gets extremely high, so stay on the paved path.

Now, you complete the Golden Circle exploration by visiting the mighty waterfall Gullfoss. This is one of Iceland’s most popular and photographed natural landscapes. The waterfall impressively falls from a 32 meters height and crashes into a narrow canyon, creating a mist of water spray. The chute is fed by the beautiful glacier river – Hvítá, rich in Salmon.

River Rafting

The adventure continues, and we crank up a notch with a river rafting activity on the Hvíta river! We take you on an unforgettable experience through the breathtaking Brúarhlöður canyon while enjoying a view only visible from a boat. This tour is suitable for most ages and abilities; all you need is the desire for adventure. We firmly believe that a journey down a fun and beautiful glacier river should be on everyone‘s bucket list. Don’t worry about being cold! – we provide a wet suit to make the experience enjoyable and a life jacket to keep you afloat.
