If you are planning a trip to Iceland, you will come across Reykjavik Excursions. This year the tour company is actually celebrating the 50th Birthday. Reykjavik Excursions are the leading organiser of coach and bus tours in Iceland. They have been providing day trips and guided tours all over Iceland since 1968. We did many tours during our long weekend in Reykjavik and used the FlyBus for all our transportation needs. Every part of the trip is planned out to perfection.
Reykjavik excursions offer the FlyBus and FlyBus+ in Iceland and we highly recommend it for transport from the airport to the bus station or your hotel. You can book your tickets online here The Fly Bus which will take you to the bus station in Reykjavik will cost 2.700ISK and the FlyBus+ will cost 3.300ISK and will take you to your hotel. We would recommend booking the FlyBus+ tickets as it brings you to the nearest bus stop to your hotel and the bus station is a bit of a distance from where you want to be.
Reykjavik Excursions are known for their tours and experiences in Iceland. They have a range of tours available to suit everybody and all budgets. You can see all the range of tours available on their website – www.re.is.
We did two tours during our long weekend:
Warm Baths & Cool Lights Tour – While we were there we did the warm bath and cool lights tour with Reykjavík Excursions. It is a magical experience and one not to be missed.During this trip, you drive via the UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park. On arrival to the Laugarvatn Fontana, you get to enjoy a local style dinner buffet You then get to Laugarvatn Fontana to bath in the geothermal bath on a cosy evening. Sometimes, you can actually see the northern lights from the baths but it was cloudy on the day so we went on an Northern Lights hunt afterwards. We were very lucky to see the lights during our hunt and it is a moment we will cherish forever. The tour starts at 6pm until 12:30pm and 14.900 ISK. You can book it here.
The Blue Lagoon – The Blue Logoon is one of the 25 wonders in the world and is a must while visiting Iceland. You also must pre-book your tickets for the blue lagoon and we would recommend doing this a few weeks before your trip to make sure you get the time you want. Once you are in the lagoon, you can stay in as long as you like.The geothermal water originates 2,000 metres below the surface, where freshwater and seawater combine at extreme temperatures. On its way to the surface, the water picks up silica and minerals. When the water emerges, its temperature is generally between 37°C and 40°C (98-104°F). The geothermal water has a unique composition, featuring three active ingredients – Silica, Algae and Minerals.
