Tour details

This tour will be introducing you to much of the natural features the country is known for – waterfalls, geysers, and remarkable geology. Stops along this guided, informative bus tour will include Gullfoss, a popular and impressive waterfall along the Hvitá river with an interesting history behind it; Geysir, which originated the term ‘geyser’ and is a geothermally active area with regular geyser eruptions and other steamy natural features; and Þingvellir National Park, the site of the country’s first parliament along the edge of the great rift being created by the drifting apart of the Eurasian and American continental shelves. Time will be left for lunch and for shopping in the gift shops at both Gullfoss and Geysir. Your tour may also include a visit to an active geothermal energy plant to learn more about the science behind harnessing the earth’s powerful heat (this is dependent on scheduling and is up to the discretion of the tour provider).
