The Golden Buggy Circle (full day)

The Golden Buggy Circle (full day)

Take the famous Golden circle with a twist and take a buggy ride during the middle of the tour and have an adrenaline rush.

The Golden circle is one of the most popular routes in Iceland and well worth visiting. The sights on this tour are Þingvellir national park where the foundation of the Icelandic parliament began in 930 AD. It is as well a site of geological wonders, as it lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic ridge. The rift is clearly visible and the movement of the tectonic plates pulls apart the island about 2,5 cm every year. Þingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The mighty Geysir is a dormant hot spring but Strokkur erupts about every 4-10 minutes, sprouting the hot water 15 to 20 meters high and sometime up to 40 meters.

Gullfoss, or the “Golden falls”, comes from the glacier river Hvitá. As one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, so that it appears that a mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.

"Somewhere" along the way, a stop is made for the action part of the day – The 1 hour buggy tour. You get the opportunity to get the rally feeling and your adrenaline pumping, as you drive gravel roads and tracks, not accessible by regular cars. What better way to add diversity to your day? The location of the buggy tour depends on the season and conditions each day.
