Discover the west coast of Iceland and visit its volcanoes and caves while staying in a 4-star hotel!

We will come get you in the morning to bring you to Borgarfjörður. Once arrived in Húsafell, you will first lunch in a local bistro before heading to Víðgelmir where one of the world’s biggest lava caves is located. The cave is located under an enormous layer of lava created during a volcanic eruption over 1100 years ago. The cave is equipped with all the necessary infrastructure to experience a comfortable and secure tour accompanied by expert guides.

Following this excursion, you will be welcomed to the new 4-star hotel in Húsafell where you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Take some time to wander around the natural landscape or go for a relaxing dip in the pool. If the weather permits, you may also have the possibility to see the northern lights. 

On the second day, climb aboard a “Monster Ice Truck”, special truck designed to travel across the ice-sheet of Langjökull. Once you arrive in the cave, you will discover the hidden heart of the blue-colored glacier. An expert guide will accompany you in the tunnels and tell you all the information you need on the history and the formation of the glacier.

After the visit of the caves, you will return to Húsafell where you will have some free time to spend as you like. Enjoy a meal in the local restaurants, swim in the thermal pools or wander along the Birch tree trails. You will return to Reykjavik at the end of the afternoon.
