Explore Iceland's most famous sights on a private jeep tour of the Golden Circle. After pickup from your accommodation in Reykjavik, drive to Thingvellir National Park. See where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are drifting apart, and enjoy spectacular views of Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.   Continue to the beautiful Laugarvatn Lake, to stop at an organic farm restaurant and enjoy some delicious local food and homemade ice cream. Afterward, visit Strokkur geyser — one of the country's most popular attractions — that erupts every 10 minutes, throwing a column of water 20 or 30 meters into the air. Stop at Gullfoss, known as the Golden Waterfall, where you'll have time to walk around the beautiful canyon on the Hvita River and take plenty of photos. Then discover the Secret Lagoon, a manmade pool dating back to 1891. Walk around the lagoon and see the hot springs, or choose to take a relaxing dip in the waters. On the way back to Reykjavik, stop off at Kerið, a beautiful crater with a volcanic lake inside. Throughout your Golden Circle experience, take in local sights including sheep corrals, Icelandic horses, amazing red pumice hills, and a mine. At the end of your tour, you'll be dropped off back at your accommodation.
