The largest lava cave in Iceland & Hraunfossar waterfalls
This tour is packed with exciting options
During this packed day I normally start in Borgarnes, the homestead of Egill Skallagrimsson, one of Iceland’s viking sons. We visit the Settlement center, where you will get an audio-guided tour of the settlement of Iceland and the saga of Egill Skallagrimsson. Truly a magnificent visit. At the same location there is a lovely lunch buffet, where we will enjoy a good lunch. Then we drive to Hraunfossar lava waterfalls and admire one of the the amazing gifts that nature has given us. From there we head over to Vidgelmir, the largest lava cave in Iceland, for a guided cave tour. From there we can visit a lovely goat farm and then take a lovely dip into Krauma, a relaxing invigorating spa that gets it’s hot water from the most powerful hot spring in Europe.
Truly, a wonderful and packed day of knowledge, good humor, good food, excellent company and magnificent landscape!
