Overview

The Silver Circle Tour in Iceland is a stunning journey through some of the country’s most captivating natural wonders and historic sites. This tour offers a perfect mix of breathtaking waterfalls, hot springs, and a peek into Iceland’s rich history. Here’s a closer look at some of the highlights you’ll experience on the Silver Circle Tour.

Tour Plan

Hraunfossar & Barnafossar

Hraunfossar, also known as the Lava Falls, is a series of enchanting waterfalls that stream out of a lava field into the Hvítá river. The crystal-clear water cascades down over a wide area, creating a mesmerizing scene that looks like it belongs in a fairy tale.

Hraunfossar

Barnafossar, or the Children’s Falls, is nearby to Hraunfossar. It has a fascinating story attached to it. According to legend, two children fell into the river and drowned, leading their mother to destroy the natural stone bridge that once crossed the falls. The turbulent, rushing waters of Barnafossar contrast sharply with the gentle flow of Hraunfossar, making both spots a must-see.

Barnafossar

Deildartunguhver Hot Springs

Deildartunguhver is the most powerful hot spring in Europe, producing 180 liters of boiling water per second. The steam rising from the ground creates a surreal atmosphere, and the hot spring provides hot water to the towns of Borgarnes and Akranes. Visitors can marvel at the immense power and heat of Deildartunguhver and even purchase fresh vegetables grown in greenhouses heated by the spring.

Árhver Hot Springs in the Middle of a River

Árhver is a unique hot spring located right in the middle of a river. This rare sight is captivating as you witness the boiling water bubbling up amidst the flowing river. The combination of the hot spring’s heat and the cool river water creates a beautiful natural phenomenon that showcases Iceland’s geothermal wonders.

Reykholt: A Historic Site

Reykholt is one of Iceland’s most important historical sites. It was the home of Snorri Sturluson, a medieval scholar, poet, and politician. Visitors can explore the Snorrastofa, a museum dedicated to his life and work, and see the ancient hot pool, Snorralaug, where he is believed to have bathed. Reykholt offers a fascinating glimpse into Iceland’s medieval past and its literary heritage.

Seamless!!!! If you need a ride, this is your guy!!! From booking to completion, the whole experience was seamless!!! Communication was effortless which set my mind at ease…especially flying so far and to an area totally unfamiliar with!! Sultan reached out to confirm reservation and then again day prior to our arrival. When we landed, he was already there at arrivals waiting for us. The ride in itself from KEF to Reykjavik was like a tour in itself! He also referred a colleague for our transportation from our hotel to our cruise! This was also so convenient and absolutely helpful! Sultan was very personable, friendly, reliable and a wealth of information. We had already booked tours prior to booking our ride with him, if we ever go back, we will certainly book with this company!!! If u need a ride, a tour, a guide…don’t hesitate!! You won’t be disappointed!!!

10/10 I used these for airport pickup and drop off. They were on-time and professional. I recommend them. I also went out on an aurora spotting trip and although the aurora were elusive due to poor weather our driver did his best and drove us for 4 hours to several places to keep trying.

Excellent service, excellent tour . Don’t miss and book with Iceland Paradise Tours especially if you want flexibility. Amazing excursion. Our tour guide Sultan from Iceland Paradise Tours was professional, knowledgeable, and was excited to show us all the sites. We travelled with my mom who has very limited mobility and Sultan was helpful in getting her in and out of the van. I highly recommend this company, great customer service and Sultan brought us water and snacks as well.

A wonderful experience with Sultan What an amazing tour guide Sultan was. We received a recommendation to use him as our guide for our overnight stop in Reykjavík and couldn't have been happier. From the start he was very responsive and accommodating. We were a group of 4 that spent over 12 hours with him. From the pickup at the cruise port to the stops to see the waterfalls, to searching for puffins, to a quick change in itinerary from going to Diamond Beach (since he was just there the day before and there was nothing to see due to the warmer weather) and seeing Jökulsárlón (otherwise known as glacier lagoon) to see some of the most beautiful icebergband a surprise stop on the way back to see the church downtown. We couldn't have asked for a better guide or day. We highly recommend reaching out to Sultan for a wonderful and memorable experience.

Snaefellsnes Peninsula Tour and airport transfer My teenage son and I had a great customized tour, including airport transfer and special day seeing the most amazing sites. We really enjoyed the hot spring, Hvammsik. We visited Kirkjufell mountain and waterfall, Djupalonssandur Beach, two sets of cliffs and the Vatnshellir lava cave! Our driver was very catering to us and treated my son like his own. Thank you for this special trip and the amazing pictures and memories.

Fantastic Family Adventure Our family just arrived back from an incredible first trip to Iceland and a friend asked what part was our favorite. How could we choose just one after exploring the Golden Circle, South Coast and Snaefellsnes peninsula with Iceland Paradise Tours! Sultan the Guide has a passion for sharing the beauty of Iceland and capturing your memories magnificently with his professional photos, as does his colleague, Abdelmajid Zaidy. We saw sweeping glaciers, rainbows in majestic waterfalls, mink whales off the coast of black sand beaches, incredible basalt columns, sparkling seas, quaint fishing villages, expansive lava fields and picturesque countryside with snug homes and adorable horses. We witnessed geyser eruptions, climbed down craters, braved mighty winds, drove through snow squalls, stood between tectonic plates, relaxed in a natural hot spring, got a closer look at an active volcano and hunted Northern Lights. Thanks to Sultan's dedication, we saw the Northern Lights on our second attempt! Fantastic Icelandic family adventure!

Amazing south coast trip! We just had an amazing 7 nights in Iceland. At first I found it quite overwhelming wondering whether to hire a car, who to do the tours with etc. Thankfully I saw a recommendation for Sultan of Iceland paradise tours. I had several conversations with him and told him what me and my family wanted to do. He listened, gave some great advice and told me that he could actually book everything for me which was great! I then received an invoice and he sent me over all the tickets for all the attractions. When we arrived we found him very friendly and accommodating, on all the tours we did with him he always added a few ‘surprise’ visits to beautiful locations that are very quiet and unspoilt! What I also loved about him was that he was very respectful that it was ‘our family holiday’ and would go off to have his lunch with the tour drivers but similarly would take the most amazing family pictures if you so wished! I would not hesitate to recommend him - in particular his passion and knowledge of the northern lights is second to none, he drove to several locations with us in order to not only find them but to get away from the crazy winds so he could take some brilliant professional photos for memories of our superb trip to this very special country! We would highly recommend anyone to use him if you want a stress free holiday and someone who is very knowledgable and helpful in ensuring you have a wonderful break, he absolutely loves to make his tourists happy and always goes the extra mile - providing snacks, drinks and hot chocolate too!

All inclusive, stress free trip! Just returned home from a wonderful trip. With a group of 8, it was difficult to decide on renting cars or to book excursions/transfers with a company. Even though we are all experienced winter drivers, we felt the drivers would not be able to relax and enjoy the sights as much. After reading so many positive reviews from Iceland Paradise Tours , we took the chance on turning our trip over to Sultan Mahmoud. We gave him a few ideas and he turned it into a fantastic itinerary. It was a great mix of scheduled tours and free time. Day 1 included airport pick up and drop off to our accommodation. That evening was a successful Northern lights tour with professional photographs and hot chocolate and some Icelandic treats. He knew the spots to go for the best chance of seeing the lights. Having a smaller vehicle also allowed for easier access to remote viewing areas. And if we hadn’t seen them that first night we arrived, we would have kept trying every night of our trip. On the way back to Reykjavik, the lights started dancing again and Sultan immediately pulled over for us to have another view and photo opportunity. Within 20 mins of being dropped off at our apartment, Sultan had sent us all the pictures he had taken that evening. This was only day 1 and we were beyond happy with our choice to book with Iceland Paradise tours. Day 2 we did the Golden Circle tour including a stop at Laxnes Horse Farm for a 2 hour ride. Day 3 was a day of much needed rest and to explore Reykjavik on our own. Day 4 included the South Coast tour with a few special surprises for us. Day 5 we had our morning free and went to Hvammsvik Hot Springs in the late afternoon. Day 6 was return transfers to the airport. We had door to door service in a comfortable van with plenty of room for luggage on airport transfers or room to bring a change of clothing or rain pants to take on/off at certain stops. Sultan knew the history of each area we visited and also the expertise of knowing which order for the stops to avoid major crowds for better picture opportunities. We never felt rushed at any sight and really enjoyed Sultan’s commentary. We never felt bombarded with constant narration or that our space was being intruded. It was a great mix of having a private guide/driver and also our own space. And most importantly, knowing we could stop when needed for restroom breaks!! We had compared the options of booking all individual transfers/tours and for the small price difference we decided to go with something more personal and convenient. There was no stress of finding meeting points or bus transfer locations each day. We were met at the front door of our accommodation and we didn’t have to think any further. Just sit back relax and enjoy. I only needed a camera at every stop as our all inclusive price included all entry fees. No worrying about standing in line or pre-booking activities. Sultan took care of everything. I highly recommend him if you want a small tour all inclusive experience. All I had to do was book flights and our accommodation. Sultan took care of the rest. I only had to budget for meals and souvenirs. I highly recommend Sultan and Iceland Paradise Tours. Initial contact was by email and then further calls and texts on WhatsApp. I never waited long for a reply. Even on our free days Sultan reached out to check in or to give us suggestions or tell us about possible Northern lights sightings from the harbor. We had such an amazing stress-free trip, thanks to Sultan. Every day I said this was my favorite day until the next day came 🤣. Looking forward to returning 🇮🇸

Exceptional Private Tour Experience We are thrilled to share our exceptional experience with our reasonably priced personal tour guide trip in Iceland. Sultan from Iceland Paradise Tours who took us on a two-day adventure to the Golden Circle and South Coast. Also he added additional sightseeing stops and even brought treats for the kids shows his attention to detail and thoughtfulness. On the day of returning back from South coast tour late in the night. He stopped immediately to safer location as soon as we spotted Northern Lights. That was added Bonus for our trip. He ensured he took best photographs throughout the trip for our memory. He has been very responsive from initial planning point from the day we contacted him on Facebook messenger and continued planning on what’s app. He addressed all our questions while planning trip. He went above and beyond to make our trip truly memorable, he accommodated our needs specially given we were traveling with kids (Age 9 & 10). He is very respectful about his tourist and always arrived punctual on time. We also had booked airport transfer with him which was flawless. His knowledge and passion for the stunning Icelandic landscapes truly shone through as he expertly navigated us through all these breathtaking locations. Not only did he provide insightful commentary and historical context, but he also went above and beyond to ensure that our tour was personalized to our interests and preferences. From hidden gems to iconic landmarks, our guide curated a memorable itinerary that exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend him as tour guide for anyone looking to explore Iceland in a unique, convenient, personalized to cater to your travel needs.
