Your tour will start with a free pick up service from your accommodation or nearest meeting point within Reykjavík. Then you will head up north towards the Grábrók Volcanic Craters. Just few meters away from the famous Ring Road there are three craters – Stóra (Big) Grábrók, Grábrókarfell and Litla (Small) Grábrók that formed approximately 3.400 years ago. Solid, wooden stairs lead up to the top of Stora Grabrok from where you can admire other colourful craters, lava fields and lake Hreðavatn.
Next you will stop to admire Hraunfossar – a series of waterfalls spread at the distance of almost 900 meters. They are also called “The Lava Waterfalls” as the waters flow out of the 1000 years old lava field called Hallmundarhraun. Close by is another stunning waterfall – Barnafoss, which literally translates into “The Children's Waterfalls”.
The highlight of this tour is a visit to Víðgelmir Lava Cave. Once inhabited, today it is the longest and most impressive lava caves accessible for visitors in Iceland. During the 1,5-hour long expedition, you will see some spectacular lava formations. During winter time, the interior of the cave is covered with ice-stalagmites and stalactites which gives this place a little bit of magic. You will be provided with all needed safety equipment to enjoy this unique experience.
Just before the final of this tour you will stop at Reykholt historic site. There you can learn a bit about history of Iceland and see Snorralaug – small hot spring used by local people since 12th century. This place was first mentioned in medieval writings of Snorri Sturluson -the famous Icelandic poet and politician who used to bath there. In present days Snorralaug is just the archaeological site, but you can still take an advantage of taking a warm bath in rich in minerals geothermal waters that boil underneath the ground in the Borgarfjörður area. After a day full of adventure, it is time to relax in an Icelandic style at the Krauma Geothermal SPA built next to the bubbling Deildartunguhver hot spring. There you can soak in one of five geothermal baths, warm up in saunas and rest in the relaxation room. You can also take advantage of an in-water beverage service while admiring spectacular view.
