Visit the Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the original geyser and one of Iceland’s most famous natural attraction. Here the ground shakes and steaming hot water erupts regularly from the Strokkur Geyser.

Tour Highlights

Almannagjá

Historically, Almannagjá was a campsite for the people of the Parliament (Alþingi) every summer. Hence the name meaning Everyman's Gorge. Through it runs the Öxará river, cascading down a waterfall forming the infamous Drekkingarhylur, where adulterous women were thrown into the abyss to drown.

Þingvellir

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is a National Park since 1930 and a UNESCO world heritage site, hosting the old Þingvellir parliament. It lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Þingvallavatn

Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake in Iceland, lies perched on the rift valley separating the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Most of it is in Þingvellir. The Silfra fissure pumps glacial water, filtered through the surrounding lava , into the lake, where the mineral rich fluid fertilises a variety of vegetation.

Geysir

Geysir, southwestern Iceland is the first geyser described in a printer source and the first known among Europeans. Geysir is in Haukadalur valley, also home to Strokkur geyser. Eruptions at Geysir can be up to 70 metres. Strokkur now erupts every 8-10 minutes from 15-20 metres up to 40 metres high.

Gullfoss

Gullfoss is a waterfal that flows from Hvítá glacial river. It plummets down 32 meters into a canyon measuring up to a 70 meters deep. The waterfall's existence is the result of a hard fought legal battle in 1907 by the first Icelandic environmentalist, Sigríður Tómasóttir.

Reykjavík Old Harbour

The Reykjavík harbour was built between the years of 1913-1917 and is becoming a boom area. With the new addition of the Harpa Concert Hall and a growing number of other interesting places and businesses in addition to beautiful ships and boats.

"“These guys raise the bar in tourism services”"

A phenomenal tour group, tip top services! Being in the hospitality industry, one is always inclined to observe the "little extras that go a long way", the small details that set a company apart from the rest. Reykjavik Sightseeing went above and beyond my expectations. They run a fleet of exceptionally new, modern and comfortable buses which make longer tour travel an absolute dream.

"“Wow just wow”"

Went on our aurora tour our first night in Iceland. Got picked up on time from our hotel. What a night !!! Our tour guide was fantastic. Informative patient and enthusiastic for what he was doing. The buses all had tablets in the seat pocket but take your own earphones to listen in your own language. What a display !!!!!!! Best they had seen in a long time. The guide had binoculars telescopes and endless enthusiasm. Definately use them again 10/10.
