Detailed description of the excursions:
 

Whale Watching

Everyone loves Wales. But that has nothing to do with this. Most people love whales as well…and Iceland is an especially good place to go and see them in their natural habitat. Seeing them is made all the easier by stepping aboard a boat and heading offshore and there is no finer whale watching boat in which to make the voyage than Andrea. That’s precisely why she is the boat we choose to use.

On your three hour adventure, you will see water, you will see Reykjavík and the surrounding countryside from a unique angle, you will see plenty of seabirds (which fly so close that they surprise many by being one of the highlights of the trip), and you will hear engaging and useful commentary from our expert guide. 

With any luck you will also see dolphins, porpoises, great whales, or maybe even all three.

Due to Andrea’s expert and experienced crew, this tour has the enviable distinction of seeing whales over 95% of the time. That’s mighty impressive when you consider we are talking about wild animals who live underwater! You are most likely to see minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises and humpback whales – but there are other rarer visitors around as well…

In addition to the expert guide, this tour also guarantees an inside seat for all passengers, warm overalls if you get cold, and a free tour if you are not lucky enough to see any whales first time round. There is a café/bar on board.



Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is undoubtedly Iceland’s most famous day tour, as it includes three of the country’s most recognisable attractions in one  simple 300km round trip.

On this trip you will be treated to hot water, flying water, deep water, clear water, fast water and tumbling white water. And all the while remaining firmly on dry land.

At Þingvellir National Park you will see unbelievably clear, deep blue water in Peningagjá, into which you might choose to throw a coin or two and watch how long they take to sink to the deep bottom. You may also see Lake Þingvallavatn, Iceland’s biggest, which is world famous as a dive site due to its spookily clear water. Þingvellir is also famous as the site of the founding of modern democracy about a thousand years ago, for the fact that the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are 
slowly pulling the place apart, and for being the place where Icelanders executed their accused ‘witches’ by drowning. It is also famous for its natural beauty, plants, birds, animals and the Öxarárfoss waterfall.

But Öxarárfoss is no match for Gullfoss. Gullfoss is one of the most impressive natural phenomena in Europe: a huge, roaring staircase of a waterfall, throwing up clouds of spray and succeeding enviably at making us humans feel very, very small indeed.

The Golden Circle tour also takes in Geysir – the geyser which gave its name to create the word geyser. Ironically your chances of seeing Geysir erupt while you are at Geysir these days are extremely slim; but its little brother Strokkur is a couple of footsteps away and throws 
scalding water up to 30 metres high every few minutes. While you’re waiting there’s plenty of other hot springs and bubbling mud pools to keep you entertained.
 


Relax at the Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is not to be missed while you are in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon's world famous warm water contains a unique cocktail of natural mineral ingredients like mineral salts, silica and blue - green algae which helps you relax and unwind while the white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin.
This tour includes coach travel to the Blue Lagoon from Reykjavík or Keflavík International Airport and entry to the Blue Lagoon. The tour also includes a return to your hotel in Reykjavík or to the airport. 
Departure and return times are flexible, with as many as 11 coaches daily during the summer months. So while the water relaxes body and soul, the coach company ensures there’s no stress in getting there and back.

 

Included: Return bus fare and admission to the Blue Lagoon.



And if this isn't enough, there are loads of optional extras for you to choose from. If you want to go on a monster truck…no problem! Perhaps you’re itching to ride an Icelandic horse? Again, no problem! You’ll get the same answer if you want to go up on a glacier, try snorkeling, hiking, trekking or biking. Just ask us…
