We leave Reykjavik taking a north-western direction to Deildartunguhver, it is the most powerful hot spring in Europe. The hot spring is providing 200L/sec of boiling water! In fact if you happen to take a shower within 65km radius of the hot spring, the hot water is taken from here.
After that we arrive at Reykholt, which was the home to Snorri Strurluson, the historian, poet, and politician who also wrote the Icelandic Saga.
We then head towards Hraunfossar, which is an unusual marvel of nature where cold clear spring of subterranean water seep through the lava creating a cascade of delicate waterfalls that merge into the Hvita River. From Hvita River we will also get a load of Barnafoss, also know as the Children’s Waterfall and the sad story behind its name.
After that comes the highlight of the tour, where we will take an optional 1.5 hour lava cave experience at the Vidgelmir lava cave. It is a very well maintained lava cave that is slightly lit so we have a pleasant exploration underground.
The cave is just under 1600 meters, it features amazing colours and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth. The signature walkway is very family friendly.
The Lava Cave (Vidgelmir) entry is optional and is offered at an additional price. Also please note that this activity is subject to weather conditions.
Optional activity: The Lava Cave is 6,500 ISK per person
