Essential Iceland - Day tours from Reykjavik

Classic Iceland 4x4 tour to Kaldidalur, Langjökull Glacier, Lava Caves, Hot Springs and Waterfalls. Enjoy an amazing tour through a landscape of extreme contrasts, full of history and geology.


Our day begins in Þingvellir National Park, the site of the ancient Viking Parliament dating back to the 10th century. From there we head into the highlands, through the barren mountain pass of Kaldidalur to the Langjökull for an unforgettable discovery of this enormous glacier. The lava field of Hallmundarhraun is our next destination where you will explore one of Iceland's biggest and most spectacular lava caves.


After caving we visit the unusual waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss and take a look at one of the world's largest hot springs before returning to Reykjavík. In winter and spring we might have to alter the itinerary due to road conditions.
