Do you want to experience all of Iceland's natural wonders? Don't miss this tour that includes whale watching as well as visits to the Gullfoss waterfall and the Great Geysir.

Whale Watching & Golden Circle

After picking you up from one of the meeting points in Reykjavík, we'll head off to the Port of Reykjavík. From here we'll set off on a boat trip around the Faxaflói bay at 9 am. 

For the first three hours we'll enjoy whale watching on the Atlantic Ocean, and you'll be left speechless by these magnificent, enormous creatures. What's more, depending on the time of the year and the currents, we'll also be able to spot some dolphins and killer whales.

When we return to the port of Reykjavik, we'll visit the Whales of Iceland Exhibition, where we'll see 23 life-size whale models. Afterwards, we'll take a 30-minute break so you can get something to eat. We recommend bringing a picnic.

After lunch, we'll set off on a bus tour of the famous Golden Circle. In less than an hour, we'll arrive at Thingvellir National Park where Thingvallavatn, Iceland's largest natural lake. 

We'll now head to one of the most exciting parts of the tour: the Gullfoss waterfall, which will take your breath away.

Our next and final stop will be Geysir, known for its geothermal activity. We'll see Strokkur, one of the most famous geysers in Iceland, and marvel at its 15 metre high eruptions.

The trip will end at 7 pm when we head back to Reykjavik and drop you off where we picked you up from in the morning.
