Reykjanes Peninsula and Gulfoss and Geysir Express Tour from Reykjavik
- Hotel pickup included
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
After leaving the capital, you'll start the day by heading for the Reykjanes Peninsula. The peninsula is almost completely covered with old lava flows - you will see lava combs and craters of all sizes and shapes, plus Iceland's famous tectonic plates.
You'll then continue to the lighthouse on the westernmost tip of the peninsula, and marvel at this area's rich birdlife. One of the world's biggest north gannet breeding colonies is at Eldey Island, where surf crashes against the beautiful basalt cliffs. It's a simply stunning sight!
From there, you'll continue through the lava fields to the nearby fishing village of Grindavik. After a short stop by the Blue Lagoon, you'll return to Reykjavik to pick up your Gulfoss and Geysir Express half-day tour, to see Iceland's best known historical sites and natural phenomena.
The afternoon tour begins with a visit to Thingvellir, a geologically unique place where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The Icelandic parliament Alpingi was established here in 930, and in 2004 Thingvellir was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.
You will also see the majestic and beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. After a visit to the village of Hveragerdi, with its large greenhouses, the tour returns to the capital.
