Reykjavik: Lava Cave, Hot Springs, and Waterfalls Tour

1. Reykjavik: Lava Cave, Hot Springs, and Waterfalls Tour

After being picked up from your accommodation, you will travel west to the historic area of Borgarfjörður, a region that can be regarded as the setting for most of the Icelandic sagas. First, visit the charming Glanni Waterfall and Deildartunguhver Geothermal Area. Afterward, you will see the great Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls spread at a distance of around 900 meters. The waters flow out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field that was formed around 1,000 years ago during a massive eruption of a volcano lying under a Langjökull glacier. Rivulets streaming from the lava field create one of the most breath-taking views in Iceland, and just a few meters away, you will find another interesting waterfall.  The highlight of the tour is a visit to a colorful Vidgelmir lava cave. Just shy of 1,600 meters in length, the cave features amazing colors and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth. The area surrounding the entrance to the cave will allow you to realize just how powerful eruptions of volcanoes can be. Lastly, visit the Reykholt historic site where you can learn about the history of Iceland and see Snorralaug, small hot spring used by local people since the 12th century. This place was first mentioned in medieval writings OF Snorri Sturluson, the famous Icelandic poet, and politician who used to bathe there.

A wonderful summer day; sunny and temperature between 18 - 20°C. I was the only tourist on the tour that day and had the guide/driver to myself the whole day. The guide was so knowledgeable, interesting, very service minded and had a great sense of humour. The view from the volcano crater and waterfalls was amazing. The visit to the lava cave was interesting and the hot springs in the spa was very relaxing. Because I was the only passenger on the bus, I also got to visit the Museum of Snorre Sturlason and had some extra photo stops. A fantastic tour!

Beautiful views, a volcano and vegetation in its vicinity, a beautiful fjord through which we passed and waterfalls. The guide charmed us with the beautiful weather and the sun actually appeared. Lava cave is an unusual adventure, you have to wear warm temperature close to zero degrees. End of the day in a nice new spa, great relaxation and rest and lots of new impressions

Had a great day out and can totally recommend this tour! The combination of beautiful waterfalls, geothermal hot springs, the historic sights and the huge lava cave was brilliant, and our guide, Thor, explained everything so well and I just had a very fun and interesting time.

Very good day, exceptional views and full of exciting information thanks to our guide Magnus.

We had such a great day, tour guide Thor was brill and loved the cave. Would recommend.
