Explore the beauty of West Iceland and take a dip into the geothermal waters of Krauma Spa on this excellent day tour from Reykjavík. This excursion should not be missed by those who enjoy sightseeing and want to make the most of Iceland’s hot springs.

The tour begins when you are picked up by your friendly, experienced guides, and are whisked northward towards your sites of the day. The first of these you will come to is the beautiful Whale Fjord, Hvalfjörður, which is renowned for its stunning sea views, dramatic mountains, and beautiful flora in summer.

Soon after you round the fjord, you will come to two waterfalls, located just a few minutes’ walk from each other. Hraunfossar pours in many rivulets out of a wide lava field and is best known for its serenity and beauty. Barnafoss, meanwhile, is rapid, hurtling down a narrow canyon.

After enjoying and photographing these two sites, you’ll head to Krauma Spa. This feature is beside the highest flowing hot spring in Europe, Deildartunghver, which you will marvel over before entering.

Krauma is heated from the waters of this spring and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Make the most of the facilities available, so that you can continue sightseeing in a rejuvenated state. Before setting off, you’ll dine on the best Icelandic cuisine at the local restaurant.

With Krauma complete, you will continue on your journey, stopping at the village of Reykholt. Reykholt is a cultural centre due to the fact that it was the home of legendary medieval writer and chieftain, Snorri Sturluson. His works have been vital for piecing together the history of the time, and without them, we would know very little of the Old Norse beliefs.

With the sites of West Iceland thoroughly enjoyed, you will head back to Reykjavík, filled with memories of an exciting day in West Iceland.

Enjoy a beautiful sightseeing trip combined with a dip in a geothermal pool. Check availability by choosing a date.
