What You Can Expect

Reykjanes Peninsula and Gulfoss and Geysir Express Tour from Reykjavik

Gulfoss Waterfall, Iceland

Immerse yourself in the incredible natural beauty of Iceland during this 10-hour excursion combining two separate tours into one action-packed day. Spend your morning amidst the surreal landscape of the Reykjanes Peninsula before continuing your afternoon visiting some of the country’s most famous natural sights, including Gulfoss and Geysir.

Start your day with pickup at 8am from your Reyjavik hotel or at the city’s cruise port. Please note that some pickups will commence prior to this time. Check with your tour operator for exact schedule. Make your first trip of the day to Iceland’s superlative-worthy Reykjanes Peninsula, allowing you a chance to see the country’s active volcanic activity up close. Explore the area’s wealth of lava combs and craters, before heading to the western edge of the peninsula for some bird watching. You’ll soon arrive near Eldey Island, one of the world’s largest breeding areas for north gannet birds. Watch the frenzy of activity from the winged inhabitants as the ocean smashes dramatically against the nearby cliffs.

Proceed back through the eerie lava fields to the fishing town of Grindavik. Make one more short stop at Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon before returning to Reykjavik to end the first half of your day and meet with your Gulfoss and Geysir half-day bus tour.

For part two of your trip, drive first to Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage site also known as the birthplace of Iceland’s parliament. You’ll also get to explore the area’s unique geology, thanks to Thingvellir’s location directly on top of the meeting point of the American and Eurasian continental plates.

Stop next at the massive Gulfoss waterfall, where you’ll feel the thunderous roar of this huge waterfall vibrating through your feet, and then visit the beautiful hot springs at Geysir and Strokkur. On your way back to the capital you’ll make one final stop at Hveragerdi, a key agricultural area for the country’s farmers. Finish your trip with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Absolutely fantastic, especially the Reykjanes Peninsula am. You have to visit this part if you go to Iceland. The driver was very good.

the afternoon tour was more interesting than the morning tour, also the guide Linda was excellent. We had no time for lunch, the morning guide told ud there would be 40 min, but he dropped us at the blue lagoon at 11:30 and we had to wait for the 12:00 bus that arrived just 5 min before the departure of the afternoon tour.

this tour is a staple of all tours in Iceland. Dress warmly, somehow its much much colder there than anywhere else in Iceland

Robert S United Kingdom

4 star rating: Recommended August 2008

A good trip to see the variety of landscapes in the country. Had the opportunity to have short walks at some of the attractions which was good rather than sitting on the bus all the time.

Julia C United Kingdom

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2007

I thought the tour was 'one tour', but in fact it was two half-day tours which meant I was driven back into Reykjavik to the bus depot and shuttled to a second bus. Seemed like a waste of time. The sights were interesting and I suppose it is cheaper than renting a car on one's own.
