Main Description

The tour starts in Reykjavik and takes you through Borgarfjörður Fjord. In the area we will see the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss. Hraunfossar means translated "lava waterfalls" and Barnafoss means "children´s waterfall". This name is according to legend due to a tragic incident your guide will tell you about. Also we stop at Europe´s biggest hot spring Deildartunguhver. The hot spring´s water is used for heating in the nearby towns of Borgarnes and Akranes.

The next stop is Húsafell where we have lunch. Afterwards we reach the highlight of the day: Víðgelmir cave, which is one of the biggest Lava caves in the world. The cave has two entrances near its north end from where you can access it. It is 1585 m long and up to almost 16 m high and 16 m wide with some sections being more narrow. To guarantee your safety in the cave safety equipment is provided and included for this part of the tour. Please always listen to the guide and follow his instructions to get the most out of the tour.

On the way back you can take a relaxing bath in a geothermal pool at Húsafell. So make sure not to forget a swimsuit and a towel even if you initially do not plan to bathe, you may change your mind after a long day full of excitement.

Highlights

Deildartunguhver

Deildartunguhver is Europe´s highest flowing hot spring with 180 liters per second. The name hot spring is more than deserved with the water emerging at stunning 97°C. The water is partially used to heat the nearby cities of Borgarnes and Akranes. But also the hot spring itself is worth a visit.

Hraunfossar

Hraunfossar ( Icelandic for “lava waterfalls” ) is a series of waterfalls in the west of Iceland. The total length of this series of waterfalls is of about 900 meters. These waterfalls plunge into Hvitá river ( Icelandic for “the white river”) which originates on Langjökull glacier and later on plunges down Gullfoss waterfall before flowing into Ölfusá river in Selfoss. Almost right next to them or a bit upstream you find the waterfall barnafoss. 

Additional stops:

  • The Museum in Skogar which gives you an insight into the life in Iceland of the past.
  • The Lava centre in Hvolsvöllur where you can learn more about volcanic activity in Iceland.
