Martina was great! She gave great insight to the Icelandic culture and people that I never would have gotten from a book or website. Even though we did not have great weather, she was always positive and we saw wonderful waterfalls and landmarks!”

Tour was excellent. The guide was very good. The only disappointment was that the northern lights were not active for us. I think the tour did give us a true feel for the country. It would be good to see more of Iceland as the scenery is magic.”  

Lynette Kershaw • Submitted 18 Jan 2017

The tour was great and we saw some amazing glaciers and landforms. We saw the Northern Lights on both nights that they were on the itinerary. The tour group stayed in great country locations on these nights to maximise our viewing. Hilke our guide was really lovely and very concerned about our safety, which was necessary when you hear about the dangers and about tourists lost because of the hazards. The accommodation was good and food delicious. We especially enjoyed the five course meal on New Year's Eve and we were just a short walk from the Cathedral to see the fireworks at midnight. A lot was packed into our short tour. Thank you to On The Go for such a great visit to Iceland.”

Explore Iceland's Golden Circle
Discover the best of Iceland's natural beauty

Comprising of the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, the geyser-filled area of Haukadalur and the impressive Gullfoss waterfall, the Golden Circle is one of Iceland's most popular touring routes. Within striking distance of Reykjavik, the three key sites of the Golden Circle feature on all of our Iceland tour itineraries so you can enjoy incredible scenery and landmarks alongside the Northern Lights and more.

There's more to Iceland than the Northern Lights with attractive port cities, stunning national parks and gorgeous countryside that's worth visiting in every season. Here's some of our favourite spots in Iceland.

Reykjavik Dusk
World's northern-most capital


Iceland's capital city is a cosmopolitan mix of top-class restaurants, funky bars and fascinating museums set within colourful buildings and intriguing architectural designs. Reykjavik makes an excellent base for those short on time in Iceland and looking to explore some of the nearby countryside with an attractive setting on the coast and backed by mountains.

Blue Lagoon - Recommended Places
Open-air Geothermal Spa

The Blue Lagoon

Situated in a desolate lava field a short distance from Reykjavik, the man-made Blue Lagoon is Iceland's most visited attraction. Visitors flock here to bathe in the warm, therapeutic waters, believed to aid all kinds of ailments from psoriasis to arthritis, and enjoy the excellent spa facilities that encompass a bar, restaurant and cafe too.

Hella Countryside - Recommended Places
Icelandic countryside


Sitting on the banks of the attractive river of Ytri-Ranga, the rural town of Hella is surrounded by gorgeous countryside of glistening waterways and expansive green pastures where the scent of horses floats in the air as Hella also happens to be located in Iceland's prime horse-breeding area. It's also an ideal base for spotting the Northern Lights with minimal light pollution and beautiful scenery.

Gullfoss waterfall - Golden Circle - Recommended Places
Waterfalls and geysers

The Golden Circle

Comprised of the spectacular double cascade of Gullfoss, the geothermal valley of Haukadalur famous for its geysers, and the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park which perfectly showcases Iceland's unique geology, the Golden Circle is a popular tourist route and easy to cover in a day's excursion from the capital.

Vatnajokull NP
Protected Wilderness

Vatnajokull National Park

With impressive waterfalls, vast highlands, glacial lakes and volcanic craters, the Vatnajökull National Park is wild Iceland at its best. As fire and ice play against one another, the landscape is being constantly reshaped and is captivating throughout the year, carpeted in snow in the winter and blooming with green in the summer.

The Land of Fire and Ice

Known as the 'Land of Fire and Ice', Iceland is a country of contrasts. To the north is the famed Golden Circle, made up of Gulfoss, 'the Golden Falls', Geysir Hot Spring Area and Thingvellir National Park - a wonderland of geothermal and hydro activity. To the south lies quiet fishing villages, black lava beaches, glaciers and the troublesome volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which caused chaos over European skies in 2010.
