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.

This tour was ABSOLUTELY amazing. Once again an incredible tour guide that was so informed and helpful. Gave us a lot of fun stories and information. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat, got to see so much in one day. The only thing I will say is a dip in The Blue Lagoon is NOT included in this. They bring you to the Blue Lagoon, and you have the option of buying a ticket at an extra cost and staying there for the second half of the tour. OR only staying for 30 minutes and taking a bus back to the bus terminal to go for the second half of the tour. You are still able to explore a bit and get some pics by the blue water. We chose going back for the second half of the tour, which we are glad we did, cause we would have missed a lot of we stayed at the Blue Lagoon! So keep that in mind when booking. You may want to book a Blue Lagoon trip separate. But man, this tour was one of the highlights of my life. DO IT if you can!

The natural beauty of Iceland is unparalleled, and this tour brought us to the important sites that we really wanted to see quickly and easily. The tour guide was very well informed and helpful. The trip was well worth it for my family of four with an 8 and 6 year old. The bus we were on was very modern with usb ports to charge our phones, which was very helpful. We highly recommend this tour.
