Know More about this tour

The Silver Circle Day Tour:

In the Silver Circle tour you will see Deildartunguhver, Krauma and so much more.

Silver Circle tour in Borgarfjrur. Why not join this guided tour and get the essential Icelandic experience by visiting places off the beaten track which are outstanding, not only natural beauty but historical importance.

Your adventure begins in Reykjavk where youll be picked up in the morning and taken to visit Europes highest outflowing hot spring at Deildartunguhver.

A natural beauty, the water from Deildartunguhvers hot spring is also piped to the towns of Borganess and Akranes for heating.

What is more, and not far from here, we will visit the natural hot baths at Krauma

As a matter of fact,  you can relax and experience nature from its core by bathing in the geothermal baths here (Entrance fee is included in the tour price). The hot water here originates in Europes most powerful hot spring at Deildartunguhver our first point of call. Interestingly, to achieve the perfect bathing temperature the hot water here is mixed with cold water from the smallest glacier in Iceland which is named Ok.

We will then visit Hraunfossar Waterfalls often decribed and being wide and gentle. Whilst not large nor powerful, or narrow and high, the fall is unusual because it is actually made of thousands of falls that flow out of solidified lava and run as tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River.

The next stop on the tour is Barnafoss Waterfall.

This is yet another Icelandic gem, which is not too far away (Side by side of Hraunfossar). It is here that the color of the water can be mesmerizing.

The name Barnafoss translates as Childs waterfall and as legend would have it Barnafoss used to have a natural arch. The arch was destroyed by the mother of 2 children who all fell from the arch to their deaths.

 The final stop of the Silver Circle tour will be at Reykholt.

At one time this was one of the intellectual centers of Iceland. Indeed for many years one of the most important schools of the country. The poet and politician Snorri Sturluson lived in Reykholt during the Middle ages.

Records of the Old Norse language and mythology of medieval Iceland by Snorri Sturlusonare are invaluable to modern scholars.

Here the remains of his farm and a bathroom with hot pot Snorris Pot can be seen and and a tunnel between the bath and the house can still be visited.
