Join us on this brand-new bus tour where you travel to Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall by scheduled bus.

Learn about the history and geology of Iceland with the free audio guide on the bus between stops.

Þingvellir is Iceland's first national park and is one of the country's most significant historical and geological sites. Experience standing on the Mid-Atlantic ridge, between the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates which pull the country apart by about 2 cm per year (just under an inch). Þingvellir is also where the world's oldest parliament, Alþingi, was founded in 930 AD.

Geysir geothermal area is famous for its hot springs and Strokkur, the main attraction, erupts every few minutes some 20 to 40 metres up in the air. The area is named after the now mostly dormant hot spring Geysir, from which the English word geyser is derived.

Gullfoss waterfall is a two-step waterfall and one of Iceland's most spectacular waterfalls. The river consists of meltwater from Langjökull glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier which has dug its way into the ground, and the waterfall now falls into a deep and narrow gorge.

Explore each destination on your own, at your own pace.
