ABOUT THE TOUR

This day begins with a drive on the dramatic highland road leading to the bleak and haunted Kaldidalur valley until we reach Húsafell. There you have an option of buying something to eat.

Next, we drive to Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland. We take you all the way up to the tunnel entrance of Into the glacier. This man-made ice tunnel is one of only 4 in the world and walking within the moving glacier is quite the experience. This is your chance to explore a tunnel that reaches deep within the spectacular ice cap glacier. 

Then we drive towards Borgarfjörður and the magical waterfall Hraunfossar, a series of enchanting lava waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming out of Hallmundarhraun as well as the beautiful cascades of Barnafoss, with its tragic tale.

Iceland’s literary heritage and the magnificent sagas call for a short visit to historic Reykholt, the home of Iceland’s greatest saga writer, Snorri Sturluson. Here you can see Snorralaug, a hot spring where Snorri bathed which might be the oldest handmade structure in Iceland.

From Reykholt we begin the return journey to Reykjavík via Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful geothermal spring. On our way home we drive through Hvalfjörður, Whale Fjord, with its controversial history of whaling before we reach Reykjavik in the late afternoon

Please bring loose change for toilet fees, warm clothes regardless of season as the temperature in the ice tunnels will be below zero degrees Celsius. You can also bring a camera and some snacks for the ride. The driver will be stopping at service stations should you wish to purchase something there.
