This day begins with a drive to the highlands road that leads to the Kaldidalur valley and Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjökull. Once we reach Langjökull glacier, you will have the chance to explore deep inside the ice caps in its reputable ice cave. Experience the exclusivity of being in a unique ice cave and witness the amazing blue ice formations.
After the Ice cave exploration, we will stop at Húsafell, where you will be able to buy some lunch. After that, we will drive towards Borgarfjörður to the magical waterfall Hraunfossar, a series of enchanting lava waterfalls, and through tragic cascades of Barnafoss.
Next, you’ll get a taste of Iceland’s literary heritage as we make a short visit to historic Reykholt, home of Iceland’s greatest saga writer, Snorri Sturluson. From Reykholt we begin the return journey to Reykjavík, making a stop at Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful geothermal spring. After the geo-power the tour, we will continue to Hvalfjörður, Whale Fjord- with its small whale factory, and remains of World War II British installations.
We will reach Reykjavik in the late afternoon.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding, has been a favorite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summer time). Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs (the hot spring part is particularly popular with the kids:)). Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.
We recommend that you have personal health insurance coverage when participating in any adventure activities in Iceland, we actually recommend that whenever and whereever you travel you take out a good travel insurance, as world travelers ourselves it has saved us money and aggravation many times.
