Overview

Iceland is the country of the Saga's. When you read the saga's of the Icelanders and how they struggled to survive the elements and sometimes each other, one cannot really understand how unless seeing it with your own eyes. That is exactly what we do on this tour. We mix the saga's of Snorri Sturluson into a packed day of adventures where we fuel your imagination and help you to understand our history while enjoying the recreation that we, the descendants of Vikings have built for you. That is why we take you to the ice cave and the largest lava cave and some waterfalls and Snorrastofa, which was built in his honor. We do not forget the relaxation in the newest natural spa, Krauma, which is fueled by Europe's most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver. We would love it if you joined us and you will love it if you do.

The Tour:
Reykjavik - Husafell - Vidgelmir - Hraunfoss/Barnafoss - Snorrastofa - Krauma - Reykjavik
Our plan:
We have to start early from Reykjavik, at 07:30 am. Pickup starts 30 minutes before. We drive straight to Hsafell and on the way you will be told all about the saga's and Snorri Sturluson, our greatest author in the 12.th century. When we arrive at Hsafell, a hidden gem under our second largest glacier, Langjokull, a mountain bus will take you up to base camp. The ride takes 40 minutes(one way) and then they take you up on the glacier to the man made Ice Cave. The whole ice cave tour takes about 4 hours from start to the time when you arrive back to Hsafell. We go directly to Vgelmir, the country's largest lava cave, and explore it for 1,5 hours. Perhaps we will find Egil's gold or trolls or elves or just each other, who knows? From there, we drive to astonishing waterfalls, called Hraunfossar or Lava falls. There we will see Barnafoss or Children's fall. After a short stop there we head to Snorrastofa, where we also make a quick stop and then to Krauma. Krauma is a newly built spa with hot pools filled with hot spring water that comes from the most powerful hot spring in Europe. We soak in that for 1,5 hours and then head back to Reykjavik. After a completely full day of history, geology and adventures, you happily go to sleep in the land of fire and ice.
