What You Can Expect

Gulfoss and Geysir Express Half-Day Trip from Reykjavik

Gulfoss and Geysir Express Half-Day Trip from Reykjavik

Start your afternoon with a pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, and head into the countryside outside the city to discover the country’s natural phenomena, historical sites and scenery.

Pass waterfalls and geysers, and learn about the harsh, yet strikingly beautiful, landscape from your guide. Then, hop out of your coach at Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and location of the old Icelandic parliament. Geologically, the site is significant, too. Hear about the ‘rift valley,’ where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, and admire the wild stretching plains that make up the wider Thingvellir National Park.

From the park, continue onward to Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s best-known waterfalls. Stop for photos, and then visit the Geysir hot spring area, home to Strokkur: a large natural spring that burst jets of hot water into the air.


Your afternoon tour then finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

The half day tour was perfect for seeing the Grand Circle sights. Gulfoss is spectacular! The falls and the short hike to get up close were especially memorable. Tour leader also provides historical and natural information along the way.

Excellent half day trip, just about the right amount of time to see some beautiful scenery and sights. The tour guide was very informative. Gulfloss was amazing but wrap up warm when visiting as the cold wind is cutting.
