Explore the geothermal areas and glacial landscapes of Iceland on a 6-hour bus tour of Gullfoss, Geysir, and Thingvellir National Park. Go to the site of the open-air assembly that ran from 930 to 1798, and see evidence of how the land was cultivated.
What to Expect
Discover the extraordinary sights and natural wonders of Iceland’s geothermal Geysir area, and see active geysers and cascading waterfalls along the way.
Following a pick-up from your hotel in Reykjavik, transfer to Geysir to see spouting hot springs, including the most active geyser in Iceland at Strokkur. Continue across the torrid landscape to Gullfoss, where you can stand next to an amazing waterfall as enormous quantities of water tumble violently into a deep, meandering gorge.
Spend some time exploring a cross-section of Iceland's natural wonders and geological phenomena at Thingvellir National Park, an area of such historic and geological significance it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.
Learn about the open-air assembly of Althing and how the landscape was husbanded over 1,000 years. See the dramatic fissures and rifts in the landscape caused by dramatic volcanic activity throughout history.
