The tour departs from Reykjavik Terminal (Skógarhlíð 10) and will take you on a 45-60 minute drive to the first stop of the day, Þingvellir National Park. You will be riding in a new bus and in every seat there is a Wifi connected computer tablet. Using the GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide on the tablet, you can choose your preferred language to get all the information you need about the places you will visit on the tour as well as interesting facts about Iceland.
The tour starts with a stop in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the gigantic tectonic plates of America and Eurasia have pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is right there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland’s biggest lake.
The next stop is at Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the one-and-only original geyser and Iceland’s most iconic natural attraction. Here the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.
Now for a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall, which is an awesome sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.
