The Golden Circle is Iceland‘s number one tourist attraction. A „must-do“ tour, as most would tell you. In one day, you get to experience the beautiful national park Þingvellir; Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss, one of Iceland´s most prominent waterfalls. If you would like to add this to your „been there, done that“ list, but still feel it is missing a personal touch, then the Golden Circle food tour is the tour for you. This is the perfect mixture of sightseeing and local food tasting. Double the fun, double the experience.


MB-08 – Golden Circle Food Tour

iceland golden circle tourThis is a full day tour, starting with a morning pickup close to your accommodation. The first half of the tour consists of the three classic locations of the Golden Circle. First up is Þingvellir, a national park of great significance which lies in a rift valley where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Next, the Geysir hot spring area, home of the original geyser and its’ baby brother, spouting spring Strokkur. It erupts every 5 minutes. Last but not least in the Golden Circle triangle is the very photogenic and alluring waterfall Gullfoss

Add some Amazing Food to your Golden Circle Day Tour

Efstidalur will be your first foodie-stop, a charming horse and cattle farm where you will feast on the ever-so-popular Icelandic meat soup and plenty of dairy products. A glass window away from the dining area are the cows that produce the milk; the main ingredient of the farm’s delicious ice cream.

Your next stop includes a tasting of the famous Icelandic skyr as well as a geothermal-style egg and bread that are cooked in a hot spring. Now, that‘s something you won‘t see every day. golden circle iceland tour

The third and final stop of this leg of the tour is a new brewery and pizza place. The beer is brewed geothermally and people agree that the pizzas here are heavenly. A one-of-a-kind brewery. Besides all of this, you will also get to taste some Icelandic treats, such as dried fish and brennivín. This is a must-try, even though it smells funny.?

All in all, this tour is ideal for people wanting a little extra touch to the classic, spicing up the story for the future visitor. Absolutely recommended!
