Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Golden Circle Express Tour from Reykjavik including Gullfoss and Geysir

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.

Me and my boyfriend went on this trip and we had Darren and Stular who were the best tour guides we could ask for! Darren made the trip exciting and fun! Would recommend this tour as it doesn’t take up the whole day and you get just enough time at each location!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

Great trip and the duration was just about right to see the fantastic sites and nature at its best.
We definitely benefitted from having a guide who was very knowledgeable and informative but in a friendly and humerous way

This was an excellent excursion. The guide Swan was ever so informative and made the story he told interesting and entertaining.
The service this team provided was exemplary especially as we had a guest in a wheel chair who they were very accomodation with. The site were awe inspiring just wrap up warm for the waterfall as the wind chill really dropped the temperature
