Why we love this tour
Tour to the Geysir geothermal area Departs in afternoon! Free pickup and drop off from Reykjavik Travel in big bus
Not everyone is an early riser. This tour takes you to the most renowned natural pearls of the Southwest of Iceland in a single afternoon.
In the Geysir geothermal area we get the chance to observe the boiling hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes.
The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls, is only a 7 minutes’ drive from Geysir – located in the glacial river Hvítá. Its elegant and majestic form is like no other, where the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32 meters deep canyon.
Þingvellir National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located on the intersection of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, but also a place charged with history, as the site of the national parliament since 930. Þingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004.
