Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your tour with pickup from your Reykjavik hotel or at a centrally located meeting point. Meet your local guide and settle into the comfortable air-conditioned bus for the journey to Thingvellir. Set in a dramatic rift valley between cliffs, where the American and Eurasian continents meet, Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and original setting of Iceland's parliament, the oldest in the world. Enjoy ample time to explore the area.

    Head next for the world-famous Strokkur Geysir and admire its hot water shooting into the air every few minutes. Afterward, drive on to the dramatic Gullfoss waterfall where water plunges in two stages into a 105-foot (32-meter) crevice.

    Finally, enjoy entrance to the Secret Lagoon. Don't forget your swimsuit and towel so that you can enjoy the relaxing waters of the natural hot spring.

    Take advantage of the bus' free WiFi to upload and share photos on the way back to Reykjavik, then finish with a drop-off back at your original departure point.
