Grand Circle

You visit Gullfoss waterfall (see photo above), the Geysir Geothermal Field, and the Thingvellir National Park - all three are medal Hillman Wonder winners.

Ice and Fire Tour

You fly low over all three of the medal winning Grand Circle wonders mentioned above. And your Ice and Fire Air Tour gets you close to volcanoes and wilderness areas.

South Coast and Jokulsarlon Lagoon

The highlight of this 14-hour bus tour is beautiful Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. Once there, an amphibian boat glides you between icebergs.

Blue Lagooon

Immerse yourself in the geothermal-heated waters. The Blue Lagoon is popular, partially because it's just 50 minutes from Reykjavik.

Greator Reykjavik

It gives you a big-picture perspective before you explore Reykjavik and environs on your own.

Iceland is underrated

Iceland is one of the most underrated travel destinations in the world. Few travelers realize how many unique experiences and beautiful natural vistas it offers.

The island is ideal for a several-day to week-long getaway from western Europe or America, especially if you enjoy pristine natural environments.

Iceland is superb for day tours and has several good tour companies based in Reykjavik. The one that offers the broadest range of day trip tours (50) and the newest-on-average vehicle fleet is Iceland Excursions. Click Iceland Excursions to see my list of its tours.
