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.

I really enjoyed this tour. Great value for money. The guide was excellent, not only for the quality of his English but also his historical knowledge of Iceland. Would highly recommend.

Even though it was rainy and cold this was a great trip. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The only thing I was sad about was it said we would go to the crater Kerid. We didn't stop there though and no mention was made. We did get a bonus stop at a church where our guide sang in Icelandic.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This is a totally amazing tour. The guide was very informative and she was very passionate about Iceland and gave a lot of background and history information! The locations we visited were excellent. They are the sort of places you see in pictures so to go there in person was truly amazing. We went in February and there was a fair bit of snow and it was cold on the hands when taking pictures but if you wrap up ypu will be fine. I would 200 recommend this tour and Iceland in general. Once you have been once you will go back again. We are going back February 2016 for a third time! Great value!!!!!
