The Silver Circle


We drive to the wonderful West of Iceland, visiting at least three waterfalls, The lovely Paradise Hollow, Europe's most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver and take a walk on top of Grabrok Crater if wanted.
We can also visit Reykholt, which is most famous for being the home of Snorri Sturluson, writer of Iceland's most famous old Sagas.

Itinerary

After pick up we drive to the Wonderful West, taking the Silver Circle and adding to that Grabrok Crater and Paradise Hollow. We start by driving to Hraunfossar waterfall, they are often listed as one of the top most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland and deservingly so. These incredibly blue waters originate in Langjokull glacier, the 2nd largest glacier in Iceland. Just a short walk away from the serene Hraunfossar we have Barnafoss, best known for its dark history in folklore and for the contrast with its neigbour. Next stop is Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring. We continue our tour to Glanni waterfall and Paradise Hollow and if wanted, hike up on Grabrok Crater. On the way home you might want to have a lovely dinner at Englendingavik a scenic and peaceful place, where silence is only broken by the sound of birds and the ever changing sea.
