Super Jeep tour to Langjokull glacier

We depart from Reykjavik in a comfortable Super Jeep with our first stop at Thingvellir National Park, home of Iceland´s ancient parliament. After a 15 to 20 minute walk through the park where we will experience first hand the dramatic mid-Atlantic ridge, we head north to one of Iceland´s highest and most austere interior roads, called Kaldidalur (Cold Valley). Kaldidalur runs along the western side of the Langjökull glacier where we will stop with an opportunity for a unique encounter with mother nature.

Hraunfossar Waterfalls

We continue on north and then west with a planned stop at Surtshellir or another nearby lava cave. In the olden days these caves were inhabited by outlaws. Next we visit the scenic Hraunfossar waterfalls cascading into the glacial river Hvita from beneath the tree covered lava fields.

Icelandic Glacier TripWe head to the historic site of Reykholt, home of Iceland´s famous chieftain and historian Snorri Sturluson. It is at this sight that Snorri compiled some of the great earlier literature of Iceland´s famous saga age. Snorri met his end at the hands of his enemies near his hot springs hot pot. We then head on to Deildartunguhver, the largest and most powerful hot springs in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the source for much of western Iceland´s heating needs.

In the afternoon we head back south toward Reykjavik, enjoying the scenic Hvalfjordur fjord with its stunning combination of natural contrasts.

During the winter this route can be altered so that instead of driving through Kaldidalur and Þingvellir we will head back from the glacier
through the small town of Borgarnes and by the underground
tunnel in Hvalfjörður.
