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.

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.

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.

"Comfort is King!"

Our south coast tour was lovely! The black sand beaches felt almost other worldly. Waterfalls are stunning. The south coast tour is a must!...even though it is a very long day. However, booking with Reykjavik Sightseeing is a really great option. Of the four companies we had tours with, they were by far the best.

"Golden Circle Tour with a Toddler"

Visiting the Golden Circle with Reykjavik Sightseeing was a great experience. They had a car seat for our 18 month old that allowed him to easily see out the window during the ride between stops. The buses are very nice, and they provide a tablet with tour facts.
