What You Can Expect

Gulfoss and Geysir Express Half-Day Trip from Reykjavik

Gulfoss and Geysir Express Half-Day Trip from Reykjavik

You will visit Thingvellir, where the Icelandic parliament Alpingi was established in 930. It is here in this geologically unique place that the slowly diverging tectonic plates of America and Europe meet. In 2004 Thingvellir was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.

The tour also takes you to the famous Gullfoss waterfall, the spouting hot spring of Geysir and Strokkur. Continuing your journey to Hveragerdi, a small but beautiful horticultural town, you will see how geothermal energy has been harnessed for the unique greenhouse cultivation of all kinds of vegetables, exotic fruit and flowers.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Since we had a short time in Iceland, this tour was perfect for us. We were able to relax in the morning and then take the bus tour that gave a quick overview of many of the highlights of Iceland. The waterfall was beautiful and the geyser was interesting. Nowhere near as exciting as Old Faithful, but definitely worth seeing. The prices of everything in Iceland are extremely high by US standards, and that includes the food at the visitor's centers where we stopped on this tour, and the gift shop items. Fortunately, the restrooms took credit cards if you didn't have the appropriate Iceland coins! Yes, they charged a dollar or two to use the restrooms at the visitor center! Our tour guide, Ziggy, was very friendly and very informative about Iceland lore. We especially enjoyed his stories about fairies.

Best trip ever! We had the best driver and tour guide ever! Our guide's name was Swan and he was very good at his job. If you dont have much time in Iceland make sure at the very least you take this 1/2 day tour - well worth it!
