Reykjavik: Lava Cave, Hot Springs, and Waterfalls Tour

5. 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.

This place was first mentioned in medieval writings OF Snorri Sturluson, the famous Icelandic poet, and politician who used to bathe there.

From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Experience Private Trip

6. From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Experience Private Trip

Traveling privately offers you the possibility of experiencing the Northern lights in a more exclusive setting away from the crowds, for a more heightened experience. After your private guide has picked you up, they will take you out of the city away from any light pollution, to find the perfect spot for you to experience the Northern lights at their best. Location is dependent on cloud coverage and activity each evening. The aurora borealis, commonly known as Northern lights, is a burst of colored lights, forming a pattern in the night sky caused by particles from the sun interacting with Earth's magnetic field. They are natural phenomena happening all year, but only visible to the human eye during the winter months when it's dark. The Northern lights can only be visible in the right conditions, with partly clear skies and darkness, and being a natural phenomenon, they can be unpredictable and very elusive. During winter we monitor the same-day forecast closely to predict visibility for each evening. Our experience is from years of reviewing detailed forecast predictions of cloud conditions, the weather, and solar activity. As forecasts are only a prediction and the Northern lights a natural phenomenon, sightings can not be guaranteed despite our best effort. We always try to only go out for the Northern lights when favorable conditions are predicted, so as not to waste our guests' limited time during their visit to Iceland. If visibility is not predicted favorable for the evening, you will be notified and offered to reschedule another evening. If you are however not able to reschedule, you will be refunded in full. Our team of experienced guides is all about making our guests' experience unique, welcoming, and memorable for a lifetime!

What people are saying about Reykjavik

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 20,245 reviews

We recently did this tour while in Reykjavík. They pick you up at the BSI terminal but then they drop you off at a city bus stop of your choice. It was a motor coach bus with USB ports for charging. Once we arrived, they gave us the return bus schedule so you can stay as long as you want. I highly recommend booking the Premium package, it cuts down on your wait time when you arrive, you skip the line, get robe and free alcoholic beverage. You will need at minimum 2 hours there because once you check in, get your free locker (and figure out how to use it), change your clothes, and shower before heading to the lagoon, the time flies by very fast. Ladies should bring a extra hair ties to ensure your hair doesn’t touch the water. Also, I recommend brining a water proof phone pouch, sun glasses, water shoes, and plastic bags for wet items once you have finished. Overall, I highly recommend this tour and would do again if back in Iceland.

Great experience, we opted for an early arrival and the last bus home is around 20:15 so we spent aslong as we wanted there.

Amazing place to go - easy transport to get the bus back to Reykjavik. Loved the masks

Absolutely amazing! The best part was the chef at Lava and our waiter!

truly an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone.
