Description

Prepare for an unforgettable adventure by embarking on this captivating 8-hour sightseeing tour, visiting a picturesque fjord, powerful hot springs, idyllic waterfalls, and a subglacial ice tunnel. Travelers who want to explore the highlights of West Iceland will love this excursion.

The journey begins in Reykjavik. Your expert local guide will collect you from your accommodation, and you'll meet any other guests on the tour.

As you leave the city behind, you'll travel through the Hvalfjordur tunnel, a marvel of modern engineering that runs beneath a majestic fjord.

The first stop is the Deildartunguhver hot springs, a geological wonder and Europe's most powerful hot spring. Marvel at the steaming waters bubbling up from the earth as your guide tells you about the springs. Their heat supplies warmth to nearby towns and greenhouses.

Continuing the journey, you'll arrive at the Hraunfossar waterfall. Instead of falling dramatically from a height, the water at this cascade flows gently as several creeks. A lava field surrounds it, and it's a beautiful place.

Your guide will ensure you have enough time to explore the area and capture its unique beauty with your camera.

The next destination will give you a spectacular view of the Langjokull glacier, Iceland's second-largest ice cap. The sight of this imposing glacier looming on the horizon is awe-inspiring.

Enjoy the stunning white and blue colors as you take in the panoramic view of this frozen expanse. Your guide will share insights about the glacier's formation, environmental impact, and the local life around these icy landscapes.

The best part of your adventure is a visit to some ice tunnels underneath the Langjokull glacier. You'll step into an otherworldly realm surrounded by walls of glacial ice.

These tunnels have been carved into the glacier's interior, offering a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore the intricate beauty of ice formations.

You'll also gain a deeper understanding of the forces shaping our planet. It's an adventure that combines education and wonder, providing memories to last a lifetime. You can explore the tunnels and take photos of the fantastic icy structures surrounding you.

As the tour concludes, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik. You can spend the evening relaxing and reflecting on the incredible sights you've encountered on your excursion.

Don't miss your chance to visit the highlights of West Iceland with this 8-hour tour of the Borgarfjordur district, including a visit to an artificial ice tunnel. Check availability now by choosing a date.
