About the gourmet Golden Circle Tour

Each Gourmet Golden Circle adventure is an exclusive experience. 

We avoid the traffic and follow a quiet path through stunning countryside to the Secret Lagoon.  Locally brewed beer, wine and tapas are served while you float in the warm volcanic waters of the lagoon - the aperitif of a lifetime!

Appetites whetted, we visit the greenhouse where the tomato is King and imbibe the best bloody Mary and tomato soup on the planet.

Suitably refreshed, we visit the lively Geysir which will perform for us like there is no tomorrow … and then, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall – not for nothing the number one visitor attraction in Iceland.

Now ready for some real food we repair to a farm restaurant to have early honest gourmet slow food dinner on locally produced beef and delicious homemade ice-cream.

Finally, we visit the Thingvellir UNESCO national park reserve where we witness the majestic continental drift separating Europe and America and, time permitting, the Althingi -the oldest house of parliament in the world.

Enjoy a full day getting to know the real Iceland, the people, the culture, the humor, the food, the fun. It’s an unforgettable experience!





This tour takes place rain or shine.


PLEASE do not think about making a dinner reservation the evening of our adventure as you will be in a comfortable “food coma” :)

Warm clothing and be prepared for SUN, rain, storm, heat... and possibly all of those together! 

Comfortable shoes for short hikes. Sunglasses, cameras, bathing suit and smiles :)
