Tour Description

This tour heads west out of Reykjavik enjoying steep, rugged mountains on one side and ocean on the other. Leaving the capital area we go below sea level as we cross the Whalefjord via tunnel.  We visit the unusual waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss and take a look at one of the world’s largest hot springs, Deildartunguhver. There are great lava caves to explore before driving towards Langjokull ice cap. It is always breathtaking to look at the vastness of the icecap, and even more so to drive up the snowy slopes.

Additional options:

  • Víðgelmir Lava tube cave tour
  • Into the Glacier tour in Langjökull icecap

Note: If additional options are selected the schedule might change slightly
