Day 3: Glacier and Hot springs

 After breakfast at Hotel Husafell we will enjoy the adventurous experience at Langjokull Glacier. The tour starts from the Hotel where we step into a special arctic truck, which takes us to the Glacier and you will get the opportunity to explore the glacier and see it from the inside. An experienced guide will lead you through the Glacier tunnel.

After a lunch (not included), we head back to Reykjavik and visit Hraunfossar waterfalls one of the most special waterfalls in Iceland. The clear cold subterranean water seeps through the lava and runs as numerous tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River.

A short distance from Hraunfossar, we visit Deildartunguhver, which is the most powerful hot spring in Europe. Next to the hot spring is the new geothermal nature bath Krauma which will open during 2017. You can soak in outdoor hot tubs and enjoy saunas and a unique tranquility room. After the refreshing bath we drive to Reykjavik.
