Was a nice day including geyser view, waterfalls and time in the geothermal blue lagoon. This is something that gives a flavor for Iceland that would be worth doing if this is all you have time for in Iceland.

We took the tour in April of 2017. It was amazing. Iceland has some of the best scenery and the pictures we have from that day are awesome! Definitely recommend.

We’ve just had a great day - full day, full value. And November starts tomorrow. The sun shone for us though and you obviously take pot luck with the weather. But I’d do it in any conditions and meet with the majesty of... More
