An exciting Highland trip taking you to volcanic springs and the summit of a glacier. A classic Iceland 4x4 tour to Kaldidalur, Langjökull Glacier, Lava Caves, Hot Springs and Waterfalls.
The day’s highlights include the exciting Kaldidalur track, the Langjökull glacier, and fascinating lava caves, hot springs and waterfalls. And with the thrill of the journey itself, this day trip really covers all your thrill requirements beautifully!
It would be a shame to drive past Þingvellir National Park – tectonic rift zone and ancient Viking parliament – without stopping in; so that’s the first stop of the day. Then you’ll head off inland up to the mountainous wilderness of the Icelandic Highlands.
The Kaldidalur Pass gives you a real taste of what wilderness feels like, before you pop out the other side to the unforgettable sight of the Langjökull glacier. Of course you’ll get out and have a look around!
Next up is the Hallmundarhraun lava field, where you will be able to explore some of the most interesting, not to mention huge, lava caves in Iceland.
The rest of the day is taken up by the no less memorable Hraunfossar and Barnafoss Highland waterfalls, oh, and the world’s largest hot spring too – of course…
You’ll return to Reykjavík full of natural wonder and adrenaline – even if the winter or spring weather forces slight changes to your route.
