Iceland in a Nutshell
Guided Super Jeep tour, Highland, Glacier, Caves, waterfalls.
We leave from Langjökull glacier, pausing to get up close and personal with one of Mother Nature’s finest gifts. Depending on time of the year, as well as weather conditions, we put our footprints on the glacial surface.
Optional: Man made Ice cave into the glacier, extra price 10.500 Isk
Next, we head north with a stop at one of this area´s lava tube caves. Centuries ago, caves like this once were inhabited by outlaws! Then we arrive at the breathtaking Hraunfossar waterfalls flowing into the glacial river Hvíta from beneath the tree-covered lava fields.
Leaving here, we’ll pass through the historic site of Reykholt, home of Iceland’s famous chieftain and historian Snorri Sturluson. Here, Sturluson wrote some of his greatest literature in the age of saga before he was murdered near hot springs that are still used and well preserved. We visit Deildartunguhver, the largest and most powerful hot springs in the Northern Hemisphere and a source for much of western Iceland’s heating needs. Our trip wraps up in Reykjavik, but not before driving alongside scenic and historic Hvalfjörður fjord. Included in this tour is driving on the glacier, helmets and lights for the caving, and visit to the brewery.
