Travel Tip: If your flight to Iceland doesn’t match with the departure times for the airport transfer to the Blue Lagoon, we suggest that you visit the Blue Lagoon as part of your transfer back to the airport on your departure day. You would then transfer on your own to your hotel in Reykjavik. We would be very happy to assist you with booking a transfer, if needed.

Hraunfossar Waterfalls – Barnafoss waterfalls- Deildartunguhver Hot Spring – Reykholt

Breakfast at your hotel. Combine history, natural spring water and relaxation on a small group tour. You will be picked up at your hotel or nearest tour bus stop (check with your hotel staff regarding the tour departure point). Visit the west of Iceland and get the essential Icelandic experience of natural wonders, spa relaxation and Viking age history. The scenic Borgarfjordur region is not well known to visitors, but it is an area Icelanders from Reykjavik love to visit on getaways. We think you’ll fall in love with this relaxing region, too.

The day starts with a visit to Reykholt, one Iceland’s most notable historical sites. Reykholt is most famous for being the manor home of Iceland's best-known author, Snorri Sturluson, during the years 1206-1241. A powerful chieftain, Snorri was an interesting man who played a big role in the events of the violent Sturlunga Age. An ancient geothermally heated pool, Snorralaug, is named after him. It is one of the few things preserved whole from Iceland’s medieval period. Ironically. Thanks to Snorri’s writings we know about the mythology and religion of the Viking people.

Then head on to Hraunfossar waterfalls, or Lava Falls – a beautiful and unusual natural phenomena. Clear, cold springs of subterranean water seep through the lava and ripple down as tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River. A series of scenic footpaths takes you to different viewpoints around the waterfalls. Also in the area is Barnafoss, the Children’s Falls. The water here is a brilliantly blue color. The falls are named after a sad incident that took place here long ago.

Next you will head to Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring. The water rushes by rapidly at a speed of 180 liters (48 gallons) per second. Right next to Deildartunguhver is Krauma Geothermal Baths. The spa’s hot water comes from  Deildartunguhver, at a temperature of 100°C (212°F). To achieve the perfect bathing temperature Krauma mixes the hot water with icy water from a mountain spring. Krauma offers five relaxing natural geothermal baths, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming saunas and a relaxation room where you can rest by the fireplace while listening to soothing music. Krauma’s restaurant has a real West Icelandic focus with vegetables, dairy products and meat from area farms.

After your relaxing day, you will Return to Reykjavik in the early evening.

Spectacular Waterfalls – Amazing Glacier Views– Glacier Discoveries

Breakfast at your hotel. You will be picked up for today’s tour at the hotel or nearest Tour Bus Stop (check with the hotel reception about the tour departure location).  Drive through the beautiful landscapes of Iceland’s south coast, enjoying the view of peaceful farms, many with horses grazing in the fields. If the sky is clear, you can view two famous volcanoes: Hekla (last eruption: 2000) and Eyjafjallajokull (last eruption: 2010). You might even glimpse the Westman Islands far off on the sea.

Stop at Skogafoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most iconic for its perfect shape. Perhaps you might even catch of glimpse of the legendary Viking treasure said to be buried in the falls.

Travel east to Solheimajokull, a glacier extending out from the larger Myrdralsjokull. Here you’ll put on crampons and take an ice axe for a glacier walk.  Your glacier guide will lead you up onto the surface of the glacier for a one-hour walk in spellbinding icy landscapes.  Enjoy views of jagged peaks, cool blue ice and wide- open sky; a treat for photographers! You’ll also learn about glaciers: how they are formed and why they are so important to our planet. This is a truly invigorating experience for your soul.

After the invigorating ice walk, you’ll visit beautiful Seljalandsfoss.  This ribbon-like waterfall offers the rare opportunity to walk behind the curtain of water (subject to trail conditions at the time of the trip).
