Explore the undiscovered beauty of West Iceland when you book this incredible private excursion. Those eager to find areas of Iceland that are off the beaten track and see unique hot springs, waterfalls, and bays should book this luxury Jeep tour now.

Your tour begins with pick-up from Reykjavik in a luxury Jeep. This excursion is a private tour, so it's just you and your friends or family. A private tour allows you to ask your expert guide questions and customize the tour to suit your interests. 

West Iceland is an excellent place to explore as it is less traveled than other parts of Iceland. You'll find fewer tourists along the way and see some spectacular scenery without the crowds. 

After you leave Reykjavik, your guide will drive along the Hvalfjordur fjord, whose name translates to "whale fjord." The fjord is home to the remains of a former whaling station and one of Iceland's highest waterfalls, Glymur. It's known for its stunning natural beauty and is a popular hiking destination.

Next, you'll visit the Deildartunguhver hot spring. This impressive hot spring is known for its flow rate of 180 liters per second. It's one of the highest-flowing hot springs in Europe and is well worth a visit while you're in West Iceland.

The water from the hot spring is used for heating homes in the nearby towns of Borgarnes and Akranes, making it an essential source of geothermal energy. Your guide can tell you about the importance of geothermal power in Iceland as you visit the nearby viewing platform.

You can also stop at the nearby Krauma Geothermal Baths. These hot pools use the natural hot spring water from Deildartunguhver to provide a relaxing and rejuvenating spa experience.

You can stop here and soak in the waters, surrounded by the beautiful Icelandic nature. You'll find hot tubs, a sauna, and a relaxation room here. The tour doesn't include the entrance fee to the spa, so you should book your ticket for this separately.

Next, it's on to the medieval town of Reykholt. Reykholt is known for its historical significance and natural beauty. It was the home of the medieval Icelandic scholar Snorri Sturluson and is home to several important cultural and historical sites, including Snorralaug, a hot spring pool believed to have been used by Snorri. 

Natural landscapes, including waterfalls, hot springs, and hiking trails, surround Reykholt. Two of these waterfalls are Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, and you can explore both during your trip. The tour's last stop is Husafell, a large farm and church site. You can also take an optional tour of the Langjokull glacier and visit an ice tunnel.

At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped off at your accommodation in Reykjavik.
