Best of the West Iceland
We start with a Reykjavik pick up and drive through Hvalfjorður fjord to the Borgarfjordur District and further inland, we visit waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafossar and make our way through the Husafell woodlands.
At Husafell, we leave the main road in our super jeep for a highland trail to Iceland’s second largest ice field, Langjokull Glacier where we visit our glacier hut, Jaki. At the hut, we give you overalls and accessories to stay warm for the snowmobile ride.
After a brief lesson on safety and instructions, you will become a confident snowmobile rider. Into to the Glacier After about a 15 min snowmobile ride up to the top of the glacier, we find a tunnel that leads into it! We take a guided tour 200 meters into the glacier and 40 meters under it into a man-made ice cave, bringing the exploration to a whole new dimension. It is time to snowmobile back to the hut and move on to the next activity.
Kurama On our way back to Reykjavik we stop at Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring and from it was created a wonderful geothermal spa with one of the greatest facilities you can find in Iceland, variety of hot tubs and a relaxation room with a firepit and a view of the mountains. This tour will surely leave you in awe and refreshingly relaxed after a great days adventure.
