Description

Take a magical summer tour to the Icelandic Highlands with hidden gems and endless beautiful nature. Travelers looking for an intimate experience exploring East Iceland from Seydisfjordur town should book this small-group tour now.

This nine to 10-hour tour of the Highland Circle starts in Seydisfjordur, where you guide will pick you up. The Highland Circle is a remote and rugged area on the country's northeastern end, little known to most travelers. 

Long beaches and dramatic rock formations shaped by centuries of wind and water erosion await. In addition, the region features many historical sites, ranging from ancient turf houses to churches dating back to medieval times.

Then it's time to ride through Jokuldalur glacier valley, home to several waterfalls.

You'll enjoy a stop at Saenautasel turf-roof farm. It was restored and brought back to its former glory in 1843. Here you can eat lunch and gaze at the lakeside scenery of this remote Highlands area.

Next, the tour continues along the deep ravines of the Hafrahvammagljufur canyon, a landscape of striking beauty. You'll stop at a secret treasure—a warm waterfall in Laugarvalladalur valley. Here you can swim in the warm waters of the geothermal waterfall or take a shower under a stream that flows into the valley's main river. 

Afterward, the tour will visit the Karahnjukar power plant, Europe's largest. It towers over a canyon formed by two rivers and boasts outstanding views.

To finish your adventure, you'll head toward Fljotsdalur valley, where you'll find a sprawling forest filled with larch trees from Siberia and red spruce from North America. In addition, you'll encounter native birch trees, rowan trees, and willow trees.

After an unforgettable day, your driver will take you back to Seydisfjordur.

This tour sees some of the most dramatic scenery in the country, with towering cliffs and deep fjords cutting into the earth's surface. The adventure will allow tourists to experience Iceland's distinctive scenery in comfort.

Get ready to enjoy beautiful nature with an incredible, full-day tour from Seydisfjordur to secluded Highlands areas with amazing landscapes and untouched nature. Check availability now by choosing a date.
