From Egilsstadir, you'll set out on a journey that promises to unveil the region's hidden gems. Your private group of up to four passengers will ride on a super jeep specially built for the rugged terrains of the Icelandic winter.
The first stop on your East Iceland itinerary is the majestic Rjukandi waterfall. This awe-inspiring cascade plunges in multiple flows from a towering height of 305 feet (93 meters). Its water curtain is visible from the road, but you can take a short hike to its base in clear weather.
Just 14 miles (22 kilometers) away is the Studlagil canyon, one of the highlights of your trip. The ravine boasts the largest number of basalt rock columns in Iceland, which are its main features.
Studlagil's discovery only happened a few years ago after the river's water level receded. As your local guide leads you into the heart of this natural wonder, they will share exciting insights and local tales about the canyon's formation and cultural significance.
Today, you can see almost the entirety of its unique volcanic walls reaching a height of 98 feet (30 meters). You can view it from the top or near the base to get a closer look at the unique blue-green waters, which create a captivating contrast with the dark basalt formations.
The adventure culminates in a visit to the Vok Baths, the most famous geothermal spa in the region. This is the perfect place to experience a soothing geothermal bath against the cold temperatures of the winter season.
As you soak in the warmth of these rejuvenating baths, you'll be surrounded by Iceland's serene winter wilderness, including the beautiful Lake Urridavatn. Vok Baths features three pools of different sizes with temperatures ranging from 41 to 105 F (5 to 41 C).
Other facilities you can enjoy in the spa include in-water bars, changing rooms, and a restaurant serving delicious Icelandic cuisine.
After a relaxing dip in Vok Baths, the guide will drop you off at your hotel or desired location in Egilsstadir. This marks the end of your five-hour adventure in East Iceland.
