Get away from Reykjavík and travel to the west side of the country to see beautiful waterfalls, learn about historic places and take a trip inside a glacier!

This 10-12 hour tour, operated on well-equipped super-jeeps will sure be a highlight of any visit to Iceland. You'll be in the company of trained guides throughout your journey, and have access to free wifi and charging stations, so there is no need to worry that your batty will run out from all the photography. 

We pick up in Reykjavík in the morning. Then we head to Hvalfjörður fjord which is just outside Reykjavik. There we'll travel the wavy roads and canyons of this quiet and calm countryside. After that, we drive through Skorradalur valley, where many locals choose to spend the summers in their personal summer huts. 

Next, we head to the beautiful and tranquil Borgarfjörður and see Deildartunguhver, the highest outflowing hot spring in Europe. The water from the hot spring is piped to nearby towns, Akranes and Borgarnes.

Reykholt is our next destination, where the renowned poet and writer Snorri Sturluson lived and worked in Reykholt during the Middle Ages. He is famous for writing many of the Icelandic Sagas, and the Eddas - the books of the Gods. Then, there is an excellent photo-op at the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. These waterfalls are unique because they are made out of a thousand tiny waterfalls that run into the river Hvítá.

Now to the peak of our adventure! We will head to the Langjökull glacier,  the second largest glacier in Iceland, rising between 1200-1300 m above sea level. There, we will go into man-made ice tunnels, an extraordinary experience to see the glacier from inside. That doesn´t happen every day! You don´t have to worry about the cold since you can get protective clothes and crampons.

A guide will take you through these ice caves and tunnels, providing valuable information and you can take great photos in the rare light that proceeds from the glacier.

 After this unique experience, we will stop at Húsafell where you will enjoy an inviting buffet – you´ll probably be hungry after this adventure! Before we head back to Reykjavík for the evening, we´ll take a look at the historical church in Húsafell which has an exciting story.

Don't miss this remarkable opportunity to explore west Iceland and the great glaciers. Check availability by choosing a date.
