Immerse yourself in West Iceland's rich culture and wealth of attractions by joining this private tour of the Silver Circle with geothermal bathing in Krauma. Those who want to visit a museum, a geothermal spa, and waterfalls near Reykjavik should look no further than here.
For your convenience, this private tour begins with a pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. You'll meet your English-speaking guide here, your primary source of information and assistance for the next 10 hours.
Aboard an electric vehicle, the adventure first takes you to Borgarnes, an hour away north of the Icelandic capital. Borgarnes is a town of cultural and historical significance located in the beautiful fjord of Borgarfjordur in West Iceland. It also connects the rest of the country to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.
First to visit in Borgarnes is the Settlement Center museum, which will give an excellent insight into Iceland's rich history. The museum houses the Settlement Exhibition and the Egil Saga Exhibition. Visitors can explore these permanent exhibitions using audio guides available in 15 languages.
The Settlement Exhibition delves into the founding of Iceland by Vikings, while the Egil Saga Exhibition profiles the life and works of the poet Egill Skalla-Grimsson. Both exhibits feature artifacts and multimedia displays for an immersive experience.
Before leaving the museum, your group will enjoy a traditional Icelandic buffet lunch at the on-site restaurant. The food price is already included in your tour package.
Soon after, the journey takes you to the natural attractions of the Silver Circle tourist route, from geothermal areas to majestic waterfalls.
The 3,000-year-old Grabrok volcanic crater is one of the highlights of this tourist route. Grabrok is the largest of the three craters in the area and is known for its hiking trails and panoramic views.
Barnafoss and Hraunfossar waterfalls are not far from here, two breathtaking attractions with unique appearances and folklore. Hraunfossar is famous for its many streams cascading down an expanse of lava fields covered with lush vegetation.
Meanwhile, its neighboring Barnafoss waterfall has a dark tale the guide will tell you more about.
To complete your experience in Iceland, you'll end the trip with a relaxing hot spring bath at the Krauma geothermal spa. Geothermal bathing is a large part of the Icelandic culture because it's the perfect activity against the country's cold weather.
At Krauma baths, guests can take advantage of six pools, relaxation rooms, and saunas. The pools maintain warm temperatures of 98 to 105 F (37 to 41 C), with waters sourced from Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring.
Other attractions you may visit on this Silver Circle sightseeing and culture tour include the Snorrastofa research center and Snorralaug pool.
After a day of exploring and relaxing in West Iceland, you'll return to your hotel in Reykjavik, marking the end of this tour.
