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.

Excellent tour guide and driver. Weather was poor, but well worth the time and money. Hope to go back in the summer

This was an informative and remarkable tour. Loved the Geysir and actually caught it on video. The Gulfoss waterfall was a bit too much for my sister to walk the pathway to so I hung back with her. My cousins made the trek and took amazing pictures and videos. Our tour guide was exceptionally funny and kept everyone intrigued with his facts and information.

We had a great guide who was passionate about Iceland and its beauty and who was very informative. The tour was very enjoyable and in a short time we got to see a lot of Iceland's amazing beauty.

A quick, but excellent half-day trip. All the sights were able to be covered, with quick stops at each, during this short-of-daylight time of year. Well worth taking this tour if you are in Reykjavik in December!

Despite the long drive, it was well worth it. Incredible scenery, enhanced by the terrific commentary given by our guide.

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!
