Tasty Journey into the Glacier

Main Sights:
Whale Bay Fjord (Hvalfjörður)
Barnafoss and Hraunfossar waterfalls
Hallmundarhraun lava plain
Natural hot spring Deildartunguhver

This tour is rich both in history and photography. We visit, among many other things, a very famous fjord, the home of one of Iceland’s famous law-speakers of the Parliament, Iceland´s most stunning and mysterious waterfall and much more. Starting from Reykjavík we cruise past the guardian of Reykjavík, Mt. Esja as we head for the famous Hvalfjörður (Whale Bay Fjord). This fjord played a major role in World War II, as the Americans had a submarine refueling station and the British had a complete encampment and refueling dock directly opposite the old whaling station of Iceland’s early whaling days. From there we head up into the mountains on an unpaved mountain road into the beautiful Skorradalur valley. We will visit Barnafoss waterfall near Hraunfossar waterfalls which burst out of Hallmundarhraun which is a great lava plain. We continue to Reykholt the home of viking age law-speaker Snorri Sturluson and explore the museum, church and pool (rumored to be the world’s first hot tub). From there it is a short drive to Iceland’s largest natural hot spring, called Deildartunguhver. On to the beautiful little town of Borganes for a walk in the clean and pristine park of Viking warrior Egill Skallagrímsson before the drive that takes us back to Reykjavík, this time in the 6 km long tunnel under the Whale Bay Fjord.
