Borgarfjordur with its fertile farmlands; the productive hot springs at Deildartunguhver
; the wonderful cascading falls, Hraunfossar
and the Langjokull
glacier are among the stunning natural wonders on this very scenic superjeep excursion.
Once outside of Reykjavik, drive through Kjalarnes to Hvalfjordur - with its steep sides and indented coastline, this fjord is simply beautiful. Carry on to the fertile farmlands of Borgarfjordur and visit the hot springs at Deildartunguhver
before reaching the wonderful cascading falls, Hraunfossar
, fed from beneath an ancient lava flow.
From here continue to Icelands second largest glacier, Langjokull
, from where the panoramic views are stunning. As an optional extra, snowmobiling on the glacier is recommended. But the amazing scenery doesnt end here as the drive back is through the desert valley of Kaldidalur
and Thingvellir National Park. An Iceland excursion for those who want to combine scenery with some action.
