Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir Iceland

Head first to Thingvellir National Park with your guide. It was here, in the year 930, that the Icelandic national parliament was founded. Known locally as Althingi, the institution stands today as the oldest of its kind in the world, but that’s not the only reason it’s such a special place. It is here, in the Thingvellir National Park, that the mighty tectonic plates of North America and Europe meet. 

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Gullfoss, White River, Blaskogabyggd 801 Iceland

Continue on to the impressive Gullfoss waterfall, widely considered to be one of Iceland’s most beautiful sights. Gullfoss is fed by the Hvítá River, which tumbles down dramatically over a series of rocky steps into deep plunge pools below. Marvel at the falls’ power and perhaps take a moment to capture the views on camera. 

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Strokkur, Haukadalsvegur, Geysir Iceland

Journey on to the Haukadalur geothermal area, where the hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur await. Discover impressive geothermal features such as bubbling mud pools, and marvel at the Strokkur geyser’s regular eruptions. 

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Golden Circle Route, Iceland

As far as the tour operators they were very professional and kept to the time schedule very well. Gullfoss is absolutely amazing and worth the price of the tour by itself. But the other two stops were just ok. Thingvellir was ok. There are some nice views but really nothing you have to see. The last stop was the geysir Strokkur which is beside the famous geysir that no longer erupts. Strokkur did erupt every 8-10 mins but it was extremely anticlimactic. If I were to come again to Iceland I would 100% go back to gullfoss and skip the other two. U

We were very glad we took this tour, as it provided stops at three of the four geological/historic sites we hoped to see in a single day tour. Gullfoss was dramatic and beautiful. Geyser, though something we have seen at Yellowstone National Park in the way of steam vents and geysers, was interesting to see in such a concentrated area. The UNESCO/National Park at Thingvellir was of high interest to us; it was thrilling to see the rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates and the actual walls of the plates. I would have given a 5 star rating to this tour if the guide would have commented about the parliament’s importance and its location in this valley and lake area.

Enjoyed this tour, particularly the Gullfoss Waterfall - quite spectacular. Being picked up for the tour at the cruise port was convenient and a factor in my decision to use Viator.
