This popular route into the heart of Iceland includes among its circuit the beautiful Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall, and the geysers of Haukadalur, all essential trips for any visitor to Reykjavik.
Got off the ship. On the Dockside is a shop with some tourist information.
Inside at a desk booked a Golden Circle tour with Bus Travel Iceland 8,890 ISK which is 69.00 GBP at the time of writing this. The ship excursion wanted at least twice that amount.
We waited in the shop for 1 hour as the coach was not due to leave until 12:30 lunchtime. The tour was 6.5 hours. It was about 45 mins drive in between each stop. The tour guide was Icelandic and spoke good interest. He filled in the journey with comments. Everything you would want from a good tour.
Not to be missed. Felt that I had seen this area of Iceland completely with its various and unusual sites. I would have liked the ship to spend another day so I could see more of the city itself....but just as we arrived back in time for sailing the weather turned rainy and foggy....so maybe left at a good time
Fascinating countryside. Visited a tomato farm. Wonderful soup there and fascinating discussion about growing tomatoes in Iceland year round. The geysers were interesting and the hot water water falls throughout the countryside.
When you only have one day in Reykjavik this is THE excursion to take. About 15 people in the bus. Beautiful scenery. Saw all the sites. Very good tour guide. Lots of walking, enjoyable. Extremely affordable relatively speaking.
Very nice tour. We walked along the continental plates by an huge lake. Lovely views, lovely area. We ate by the geothermal area and the food was quite good. Amazing Waterfall, Gulfoss, There must have been thousands of people but there was enough room to see it all. Impressed by the board walks built to support the traffic
We booked with Geoiceland and had a great excursion. We were picked up at the pier, a group of 18, and guided to see the waterfalls, thermo pools, lakes, parliament fields, Iceland horses and more. Our guide was very knowledgeable . We were able to charge the tour while on the bus.
9 hours of pure brilliance, from driving through epic country vistas' to visiting waterfalls, bobbing in geothermal hot baths, visiting the first Parliament, stradling the North America European Tectonic plate, watching a geyser pop every 8 minute, to enjoying a pretty decent lunch. Absolutely loved it!
This was a full day tour and we loved every stop. Thingvellier National Park was spectacular as was the Gullfoss Waterfall. Also spent an hour at the Geothermal Baths with plenty of time to enjoy the water. Great lunch then on to the Geysir.
