Know More about this tour

Pickup starts at 8:00am from your Reykjavik hotel then departs from the Harpa Concert Hall in downtown Reykjavík at 8:30am. The first stop will be the geothermal power plant, Hellisheiðarvirkjun, where you will be shown around their exhibition and learn about earthquakes, eruptions and geothermal energy. 
Then head to Faxi waterfall and its fresh water. If you are lucky you can see salmon traveling up or down the fish ladder. The next stop will be Geysir hot spring area where the geyser Strokkur spouts water up to 65 feet (20 meters) up in the air. From Geysir it takes less than 10 minutes to Gullfoss waterfall where melt water from the glacier Langjökull flows down a deep canyon forming the waterfall. The lunch stop can be either at Geysir or Gullfoss (at own expense).

The last stop of the day is at Thingvellir National Park where the old Viking parliament was situated and where the two tectonic plates that Iceland lies on are slowly drifting apart.

Return to Reykjavík will be around 5:00pm and your guide will drop you off as close to your hotel as possible.

  • The tour itself is provides a good overview of interesting terrain, with extensive information provided by the driver regarding historical factors that led to what we are looking at. I really enjoyed the green energy plant and the explanation provided by the guide. Our rating is one star lower than the trip itself warrants because our mini-bus broke down and stranded us on the side of a very busy highway. The tour company did all the could and arrived in about 45 minutes with a substitute bus, but that made the tour hurried because 6 people had a 5:00 commitment that had to be met. Also, the seat belts in the back of the bus only sort of worked. On the whole, I am glad we did the tour.

  • Had the best tour. The bus got us right on time and we had ample time there to check out the area. Highly recommended!

  • When I choose this tour, I find it includes many places to visit. Although there are only 2 reviews when I booked the tour, I am happy I have chosen this tour to join finally. A funny tour guide and he bring us to many attractions! We really enjoy and think the tour is very value for money!

  • Amazing! Our guide was just perfect!

  • Anna was a phenomenal tour guide and the stops were just breath taking! Thank you for the fantastic day!

  • Our trip was somewhat complicated by a blizzard hitting at the last stop and closing roads and making for an exciting snowy and windy ride home on a long alternative route... but that adversity highlighted the excellence of the guide, Pieter. Not enough characters left to praise him properly!
