Chance of Joining a Separate Ice Tunnel Tour - lunch break in Husafell


We'll drive along beautiful fjord Hvalfjordur, crossing the mountains and valleys to the western interior of Iceland. Today we are visiting waterfalls Barnafoss and Hraunfossar. We will also take a break at medieval site Reykholt and see where writer Snorri Sturluson lived, wrote and bathed. We'll see Deildartunguhver spouting hot water out of a cliff and we'll take a lunch break in Husafell. When conditions allow (summers only) we'll drive all the way up to glacier Langjokull to see the glacier. You have a chance of joining a separate tour to ice tunnel in a big glacier truck driving all the way up to the glacier where you go with your group into the ice tunnel to see crevasses, ice, snow and glacier from the inside.
