Taking a Reykjavik day tour is one of the best ways to see the country. Whether you want to get close to glaciers or take in the Northern Lights, these tours will give you an experience to remember.URL:ventito.is
You can do a few of these excursions on your own, but booking a tour will let you relax in a hot spring or hunt for the Northern Lights. Plus, you won’t have to worry about driving in a foreign place or finding places to park.
A popular choice is the Golden Circle, a 300 km (186 mile) loop that includes three of Iceland’s most popular sights. This tour will take you to Gullfoss, the Geysir Geothermal Area, and Thingvellir National Park. In the latter, you can see a giant fissure in the earth that marks the division between two continents, walk behind the waterfall Oxararfoss, and visit the ancient parliament site Law Rock.
Urban Explorations: A Day Tour Odyssey in Reykjavik
Glaciers are synonymous with Iceland, so it’d be a shame to skip a glacier-viewing excursion in Reykjavik. You can visit the Langjokull glacier, which is one of the largest in the world, on a self-drive or guided tour. For something more family-friendly, you can book a trip to Sky Lagoon, a new geothermal pool that’s quieter and closer to the city — perfect for a Reykjavik day tour with kids.
Another option is a whale-watching boat cruise. The chance of spotting whales or dolphins is high, and you’ll be on the water, admiring the rugged mountains that surround the coast.
