Explore West Iceland's magnificent lava waterfalls when you book this incredible eight-hour guided tour. Those eager to see some of Iceland's most spectacular natural wonders should book this private tour now. 

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik for this private tour, just for you and your traveling group. You'll be dropped off here again once the trip is finished, full of happy memories that you've made throughout the day. 

You'll start when you head north to the West Icelandic fjord of Borgarfjordur. This area is spectacular, filled with mountains and waterfalls, and situated around 62 miles (100 kilometers) from Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city. 

Your private guide is also an expert on Iceland's natural landscapes, and you'll have them all to yourselves, so you'll be able to ask any questions you have along the way. They can talk about the landmarks en route, the region's folklore, and the life of a local.

First up on the journey is Hraunfossar. Hraunfossar is a series of wide, trickling waterfalls that stream out of the Hallmundarhraun lava field, created following an eruption of one of the volcanoes under the glacier Langjokull. These gentle falls pour into the Hvita river.

Next, you'll visit Barnafoss. Although nearby and also a waterfall, Barnafoss couldn't be more different from Hraunfossar. Barnafoss is a twisting, turning waterfall that races down a narrow valley. You can view it from above. 

The contrast between these waterfalls, one dramatic and the other peaceful, makes for such a magical experience. 

As this is a private trip, you can customize the rest of your day to see other sites of the west, such as the highest flowing hot spring in Europe, Deildartunghver, and the village of Reykholt.

Deildartunghver is not only a beautiful landmark but home to the Krauma Spa, a set of geothermal pools with gorgeous views. If you organize admission here before departure, you can take a break from sightseeing to enjoy the waters.

Reykholt has most appeal to history buffs, as it was once the home of the writer Snorri Sturluson. This medieval chieftain was influential in Iceland's civil war and its transition toward the Norweigan crown, and you can learn about him at a local museum.

The village also has a beautiful church.

After a full day of exploration, you'll head back to Reykjavik.

Don't miss this incredible eight-hour experience discovering the contrasts between two of Iceland's most well-known waterfalls and other sites in the west. Check availability now by choosing a date.
