Description

Embark on an exclusive adventure through West Iceland with this private Silver Circle tour, a 10-hour excursion that promises to unveil the hidden treasures of this captivating region. Discover lesser-explored regions adorned with stunning waterfalls and hot springs, all while traversing the majestic Langjokull glacier and witnessing the grandeur of the largest glacier tunnel ever constructed.

This thrilling private tour is perfect for those seeking a deeper connection with Iceland's untouched beauty, offering a personalized and immersive experience.

Your journey starts with a convenient private SUV or Superjeep pickup in Reykjavik. 

Hvalfjordur, also known as the "whale fjord," is where the adventure begins. It provides a peaceful retreat into nature, away from the typical tourist routes. Traveling through this calm fjord, you'll follow a road that winds through beautiful landscapes, making it a perfect path for those looking for a peaceful experience and an opportunity to appreciate Iceland's unspoiled scenery.

Following that, you'll visit Deildartunguhver, a natural hot spring where the water reaches a high temperature of 97°C (200°F). This geothermal wonder has the highest flow in Europe, releasing 180 liters (47.5 gallons) per second, and plays a crucial role in heating the neighboring towns of Borgarnes and Akranes.

Your journey proceeds to Reykholt, a town steeped in history and cultural significance. Beyond its charming appearance, Reykholt is a vital part of Icelandic heritage, with ancient structures and narratives of historical figures shaping its identity. Explore the past as you stroll through the paths that were once frequented by notable individuals, immersing yourself in the rich history of this quaint settlement.

Next on your journey, you'll explore Hraunfossar. Translating to "lava waterfalls," Hraunfossar is a unique natural wonder. Unlike typical waterfalls, it's not a single cascade but a collection of small streams forming numerous white waterfalls. These streams flow into Hvita, the "white river" in Icelandic.

While these falls are not powerful and lack a significant drop, their beauty lies in the contrast of white water against the dark, solidified lava surrounded by vibrant plants. 

The tour proceeds to Barnafoss, known as the "children's waterfall." According to legend, it got its name because two children tragically fell into the river and drowned while their parents were at church, despite being told to stay home. Although the story is somber, the waterfall itself is enchanting. 

Finally, you'll reach Husafell, the starting point for Langjokull glacier adventures. Weather permitting, you'll venture off-road to visit the glacier and explore the Highland Road of Kaldidalur. 

Please note that a modified super jeep is required to approach the glacier, and additional options include snowmobiling, ATV buggy rides, exploring a man-made ice cave, horseback riding, and a guided lava cave tour.

As your adventure concludes, you will be comfortably dropped off in Reykjavik, bringing an end to this immersive 10-hour private Silver Circle tour through the hidden treasures of West Iceland.
