Golden Circle Express with Reykjavik Whale Watching

Golden Circle Express with Reykjavik Whale Watching
A geyser called Strokkur blasts water in Haukadalur Valley.
This mighty two-tiered waterfall in the Hvíta River is called Gullfoss.
Harbour Porpoises and White-Beaked Dolphins are two very common species seen in Faxaflói Bay, and all around Iceland.
Minke Whales are usually docile, but, as can be seen, do occasionally perform in the waters around Reykjavík.
Þingvellir National Park is a dramatic land of ravines, lava fields, springs and forest.
Þingvellir National Park was once the centre of democracy in Iceland.

Join us on an unforgettable full day combo tour taking you to some of the most popular activities in Iceland - the magical world of Þingvellir national park, Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall, Hveragerði (the hot spring town) and the whales of Faxaflói bay.

Start the day with a pickup from your designated pickup place (hotel or bus stop) in the Reykjavík area and collect your tickets for an adventure at sea. On this 3 hr. whale watching you will learn interesting facts about the whales and wildlife in and around Reykjavík, tales about the landscape and towns on the horizon and (hopefully) spot the beautiful creatures of the bay, namely the whales and dolphins! The most common sightings are Minke whales, Humpback whales, Harbour porpoises and White-beaked dolphins. In the summer months we are even likely to spot some Puffins, as they travel from Southern waters to Iceland to breed and feed.

We return to shore in time for you to walk around the harbour area, look into little shops and restaurants or simply wait for your bus to collect you for the tour.

Spend the rest of the day on a guided bus tour to the most popular sights of Iceland, better known as the Golden Circle! You will be visiting the best known historical sites and natural phenomena in the country.

The National park preserves some of Icelands most precious geology and is also a UNESCO world heritage site as the world’s first parliament was founded there in the 10th century. Walk between two continents through the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where North America and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart. Silfra fissure is on the edge of lake Þingvallavatn and is one of the top places in the world to snorkel and dive as the water is so pure!

Gullfoss waterfall is one of the most powerful natural wonder in Iceland. Situated in a canyon of the great Hvítá (white river) created from melted glacial waters, you can really hear and feel the power that nature possesses.

Geysir Geothermal area is a wide spread landscape characterised by bubbling hot springs and hissing steam vents from the active earth beneath. Strokkur geyser, next to the now dormant Geysir, blasts off every 5-10 minutes spouting water high into the sky (up to 40 m. or 131 ft.)! This is where the name ‘geyser’ originates.

After the tour you will be driven back to your hotel or designated bus stop in the Reykjavík area. Don’t miss out in this great opportunity to visit the wonders of Iceland!
