Reykjavik Day Tours

If you’re visiting Iceland, one of the best things you can do is take a day tour. You’ll see more of the country than you would driving on your own and you’ll have the added benefit of an expert guide to help make the most out of your trip.Read

Here are a few options for Reykjavik day tours to consider.

The most popular waterfall hike is the beautiful Skoga Trail (Skogafoss Waterfall Hike). This stunning hike takes you along 25 different waterfalls as well as dramatic canyons and glacier-topped volcanoes in the background. This is a must-do for nature lovers and it’s also great value, especially when booked as a group tour.

Lava Fields

Visiting the lava fields of the Reykjanes Peninsula is an exhilarating experience, even more so when you go under the lava tunnel, the Raufarholshellir. It may seem like a scary thing to do, but it’s really quite safe. And the views of the craters are spectacular, so it’s well worth it.


Glaciers are a huge part of the landscape in Iceland and it’d be a shame to miss out on seeing one, especially as they can be seen from the city on a clear day. Check out this tour that drives you to Myrdalsjokull glacier in a Super Jeep and then hikes up to Kotlujokull glacier, where you’ll explore a natural ice cave.

If you’re in the mood for shopping, there are plenty of great shops on Laugavegur and its intersecting streets. You can find some cool clothing and homewares as well as lopapeysa (cosy Icelandic woollen jumpers) and lava rock jewellery.
