Get picked up by at approximately 9am your guide and let the day begin with a drive along the west coast through the town of Borgarnes to the beach in Ytri Tunga which is a well-known seal colony. The seals are friendly and curious and will climb up on the rocks near the sandy beach. Visit the fishing hamlet Arnarstapi and then Hellnar where you will have time to walk along the cliffs for half an hour; the view to the sea from this hike is breathtaking. In Djúpalónssandur you will discover incredible rock formations. The beaches are covered with small black stones which are unique. You will hike to one of the most impressive formations called Lóndrangar, which are a pair of rock pinnacles made of basalt approximately 70 m high. At the end of the first day you will give a visit to the majestic Kirkjufell mountain, which is one of the most popular photo stops in Iceland. If you have not used your camera before on the tour then this one is a must! After this visual feast, your day ends at the accommodation in the Western Iceland. The Northern Lights are known to play their amazing symphony of lights in this area if the conditions are favorable.Your accommodation is in cozy and comfortable rooms with private bathrooms. After a refreshing rest and having breakfast at the hotel, you day starts with a visit to the historic Borgarfjordur area where you will see the great Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 m (almost 300 ft!) across the Hallmundarhraun lava field, which flow from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvítá River from ledges created by less porous rock in the lava. Literally a stone’s throw upstream from Hraunfossar, you will visit another waterfall called Barnafoss. Its name, “the waterfall of the children,” comes from an accident which is said to have taken place here in a previous century. There was a natural stone bridge over the waterfall, and two children from a nearby farm fell to their deaths crossing the river on the bridge. Afterwards, the grief-stricken mother had the bridge destroyed. The highlight of the tour is a visit to a colorful Viðgelmir Lava Cave. Just shy of 1600 meters the cave features amazing colors and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth. During this 1,5 hour long expedition you will have a change to see one of the largest lava caves in Iceland with its stunning lava stalactites and stalagmites. Finally, take in the sights at Deildartunguhver, the highest-flow hot spring in Europe. To put the icing on the cake, your last stop today will be at the Krauma natural geothermal baths & Spa, located next to Deildartunguhver. This brand new beautiful Spa offers five relaxing geothermal baths, a cold tub, two steam baths and more, all in a very natural environment.
