Your day's adventure will begin with a pickup from your accommodation in Reykjavík city by a Mercedes Benz V-class luxury minivan. From there, you'll be whisked north-west along Road 1 on your way to the first destination, Langjökull, the second largest glacier in Iceland. 

Until now, what lies under the surface of the Langjökull glacier has been unknown to the public. But in 2010, a couple of Icelanders had a vision; to take people, not just around and on top of the glacier, but also inside glacier ice cap so they could see the blue ice which rests deep inside the glacier.

Working to make this possible were engineers, geophysicist and a presidential candidate. They made it possible to shape the biggest man-made ice cave tunnels, and the first one accessible to the public.

You'll follow your guide through these intricate tunnels, witnessing first-hand the ever-changing environment of glaciers. You'll see countless of rooms and halls built inside the glacier, including the 'chapel', where both weddings and concerts have been held.

On the way back to Reykjavík, you will make a stop at Hraunfossar waterfalls. This cascade is an exceptionally beautiful and unusual natural pearl. The waterfall looks like it magically appears from within the lava, but it actually is a spring that surges through the ground and runs down into the Hvítá river. The waterfall streams out of Hallmundarhraun which is an ancient lava field created in an eruption from a volcano lying under Langjökull glacier.

There is a hiking trail which leads from Hraunfossar to another nearby natural pearl, Barnafoss waterfall. This cascade is vastly different from Hraunfossar as it rushes violently through a dramatic canyon.
