Highlights

  • Drive across the roof of Iceland on the Kaldidalur (Cold Valley) road
  • Marvel at the western reach of the Langjökull glacier
  • Stop at the lava cave of Surtshellir
  • See the breathtaking Hraunfossar waterfalls, flowing into the glacial River Hvita from beneath tree-covered lava fields

  • Visit Deildartunguhver, the largest and most powerful hot springs in the Northern Hemisphere

Description

Drive across the summit of Iceland on a 9-hour scenic tour and see some of the nation’s most austere inland roads. Departing from Reykjavik in a Mountain Taxi Super Jeep, make your way towards Kaldidalur (Cold Valley), traveling alongside the western part of the Langjökull Glacier. Pause to get up close to this miracle of Mother Nature, and then veer north to stop at a lava cave named Surtshellir. Centuries ago, caves like Surtshellir were inhabited by outlaws! Today, they are simply breathtaking examples of nature at work. Feel the spray of the Hraunfossar waterfalls on your face as you watch them flowing into the glacial River Hvita from beneath tree-covered lava fields. Next, the tour drives through the historic site of Reykholt, home to Iceland’s famous chieftain and historian Snorri Sturluson. Sturluson wrote some of his greatest literature in the age of saga before he was murdered near the hot springs that are well preserved, and still used. Finally, visit Deildartunguhver, the largest and most powerful hot springs in the Northern Hemisphere, and a source of much of western Iceland’s heating needs. Your trip wraps up in Reykjavik, but not before driving alongside the scenic and colorful Hvalfjordur Fjord.
