In the afternoon, your tour continues with the Gullfoss and Geysir Express half-day trip. The tour begins with a visit to Thingvellir, a geologically unique place where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The Icelandic parliament Althingi was established here in 930, and in 2004 Thingvellir was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.
You will also see the majestic and beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. After a visit to the village of Hveragerdi, with its large greenhouses cultivating all manner of fruit, vegetables and flowers, the tour returns to the capital.
Despite doing this trip in the middle of winter it was well worth doing and a wonderful way of seeing the landscape outside of Reykjavik. The guide and driver were excellent and very informative. Would highly recommend
We got a great feel for 2 different areas all in one day. Combining both for same day was perfect for our time frame.
