Explore the natural sights and fascinating history of the Borgarfjordur area in West Iceland by booking this incredible nine-hour excursion from Reykjavik. Those eager to discover hot springs, waterfalls, and glaciers with an expert local guide should book this private tour now.

Your tour starts with pick-up at your accommodation in Reykjavik. You'll meet the guide leading your group on the trip. This excursion is a private tour, so just you and your group will be there. There's no need to wait for other guests, and you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask your guide any questions. 

The first tour stop is the Deildartunguhver hot spring in West Iceland. Europe's most voluminous hot spring produces around 316 pints (180 liters) of almost-boiling water every second. The spring's hot water is a vital source of district heating for nearby towns, including Borgarnes and Akranes, showcasing Iceland's pioneering use of geothermal energy. 

The next stop on the tour is the historic village of Reykholt. The settlement has deep historical significance as it was the home of Snorri Sturluson, the renowned medieval Icelandic historian, politician, and author. He's thought to have written the Prose Edda, a masterpiece of Icelandic literature that preserved ancient sagas and laid the foundation for our understanding of Norse mythology. 

Next, you'll visit two famous waterfalls close to each other that couldn't be more different: Barnafoss waterfall and Hraunfossar waterfall. 

Barnafoss waterfall, also known as the "Children's Waterfall," is named after a legend where two children disappeared while crossing a natural stone bridge, and their grieving mother destroyed it. Its turbulent waters rush through narrow ravines, creating a beautiful, dramatic sight.

In contrast, the Hraunfossar waterfall, or "Lava Falls," is a series of smaller cascades flowing from the Hallmundarhraun lava field. The water emerges from underground springs, gently cascading down the dark lava rocks, offering a serene and enchanting experience. 

You'll get a good view of Langjokull glacier from here. Langjokull glacier is the second-largest glacier in Iceland and makes for an awe-inspiring sight. You'll have time to take photos as you explore the area.

Your last stop of the day is a lava tube adventure, where you'll see some unique geological formations and learn more about Iceland's volcanic activity. At the end of the tour, your guide will take you back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Take advantage of this immersive 9-hour private tour exploring West Iceland, the Borgarfjordur area, and the natural wonders they are home to. Check availability now by choosing a date.
