    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Grabrok Crater, Road 1 33 km north of Borgarnes, Bifrost, Borgarbyggd Iceland

    First, you’ll visit Grabrok Volcanic Craters. Just few meters away from the famous Ring Road there are three craters – Stora (Big) Grabrok, Grabrokarfell and Litla (Small) Grabrok that formed approximately 3.400 years ago during massive eruption shaping the landscape around. Solid, wooden stairs lead up to the top of Stora Grabrok from where you can admire other colorful craters, lava fields and lake Hreðavatn.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Hraunfossar, Road 518, Husafell 311 Iceland

    You will see the great Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls spread at a distance of around 900 m. The waters flow out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field that was formed around 1000 years ago during a massive eruption of volcano lying under a Langjökull glacier. Hraunfossar are very often called “Lava Waterfalls”. Rivulets streaming from the lava field create one of the most breath-taking views in Iceland.

    Stop At: Barnafoss, Mooruvallavegur Möðruvellir 5, Reykholt, Borgarbyggd Iceland

    Just few meters away from Hraunfossar you will find another interesting waterfall – Barnafoss. Its name, “the waterfall of the children,” comes from an accident tale which is said to have taken place here in a previous century. There was a natural stone bridge over the waterfall, and two children from a nearby farm fell to their deaths crossing the river on the bridge. Afterwards, the grief-stricken mother had the bridge destroyed.

    Duration: 30 minutes

During this 1,5 hour long expedition you will have a chance to see one of the largest lava caves in Iceland with its stunning lava stalactites and stalagmites. The area surrounding the entrance to the cave will allow you to realize how powerful eruptions of volcano can be.

    Just before the relaxing final of this tour you will stop at Reykholt historic site.

This place was first mentioned in medieval writings of Snorri Sturluson -the famous Icelandic poet and politician who used to bath there.
