Golden Circle Day Trip with Geothermal Greenhouse visit from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Following morning pickup at select hotels in Reykjavik, board the climate-controlled coach and embark on the Golden Circle tour of Iceland's most remarkable natural landmarks. Along the way, learn about the history, ecology and geology of the area from your local guide. 
    Stop at the Geysir geothermal area, home to the Strokkur geyser, which erupts with a 98-foot (30-meter) column of boiling water every 4 to 8 minutes. Continue to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most impressive waterfalls, where the Hvítá River cascades into a 105-foot (32-meter) crevasse. 
    In Thingvellir National Park (Þingvellir), see the fields of verdant moss and the gash in the earth where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are pulling apart. 
    Visit the Friðheimar greenhouse, where organic produce is grown using the power of the earth's geothermal heat. Learn about the growing process and taste some of the fruits of the farmers' labor.

    In general I’d recommend this trip for families, couples or individuals who want to see a range of what Iceland has to offer and the convenience of a Reykjavík start/stop in a single day. With that said, the dropped pin or link that was provided...More

    From what I saw, you get picked up from hotels around the city and taken to a central bus station to be transferred onto the Golden Circle Tour. Unless your cruise company has organised the pick-up's, I don't think you would... More
