Nature, culture and history
This tour takes you on an excursion from Reykjavik to the village Borgarnes exploring nature, culture and history. This route follows the picturesque shore line onto the old road through Hvalfjörður fjord and then to the charming village of Borgarnes in Borgarfjörður area to introduce you to the settlement history of Iceland. Before driving along its shores was the only way to get to Borgarnes.
Our next stop is where we will visit one of the ongoing exhibitions. Our lunch break will be in Fossatún where you can see the magical Troll Falls, after which we head for more history in Reykholt and then to the geothermal area at Deildartunguhver hot spring which pumps over 100 litres of boiling water every second. Here we say goodbye to our guide and head through the Hvalfjörður tunnel back to Reykjavik.
