Explore less-crowded areas in West Iceland, admire captivating waterfalls and hot springs areas, have a ride on top of the Langjökull glacier, visit the biggest glacier tunnel ever made and much more on this fantastic private Hvalfjörður Into the Glacier jeep tour.
The first highlight of the tour will be the breathtaking Hvalfjörður, also known as the Whale Fjord, where you can visit the remains of former whaling stations as well as Glymur waterfall, the second-highest waterfall in Iceland. The road along Hvalfjörður is a perfect idea for anybody who wants to escape crowds and go off the beaten track.
After that, we will visit the Deildartunguhver natural hot spring area, where we will have a relaxing geothermal bath in the newly opened Krauma Spa. You will get to choose from between various types of hot tubs, pools, and saunas. There is also a fantastic relaxation room. All this is set against a backdrop of mesmerising Icelandic nature.
After Krauma, we will head to the historical town of Reykholt and take photographs of nearby waterfalls Hraunfoss and Barnafoss.
The main highlight of the tour will be Húsafell, the base where all excursions to Langjökull glacier begin. Langjökull is the second-largest glacier in Iceland, so we are going to need a ride by a specially modified monster truck, as only this type of vehicle can drive on top of the vast ice cap.
We will park in front of the tunnel to enter the astounding world that can be found under the surface of the ice. There, we will discover a cross section of the glacier that shows the scale of snowfall throughout the ages, as well as signs of previous eruptions in Iceland that formed black lines, where the volcanic ash was settled and later pressed by the gravity of the glacier moving down the hill.
Please note that the "Into the Glacier" leg of the journey is not included in the price of this tour. If you would like to undertake this journey, please contact us.
In winter months, on our way back to Reykjavík, we will make additional stops, and weather and good fortune permitting, we may be able to spot some Northern Lights.
