Day 2: Silver Circle and Krauma Geothermal Baths:

Highlights: Snorrastofa – Reykholt Hraunfossar Barnafoss Deildartunguhver

Hraunfossar Waterfalls – Barnafoss waterfalls- Deildartunguhver Hot Spring – Reykholt

Breakfast at your hotel. Combine history, natural spring water and relaxation on a small group tour. Visit the West of Iceland and get the essential Icelandic experience by visiting places that are not only beautiful but also have historical importance.  The Borgarfjordur region is not well known to visitors, but it is an area Icelanders from Reykjavik love to visit on getaways.

The day starts with a visit to Reykholt, one Iceland’s most notable historical sites. Reykholt is most famous for being the home of Iceland’s best-known author Snorri Sturluson during the years 1206-1241. An ancient geothermally-heated pool, Snorralaug, is named after him.  It is one of the few things preserved whole from Iceland´s medieval period.  Thanks to Snorri’s writings we know about the mythology and religion of the Viking people.

Then head on to Hraunfossar waterfalls, or Lava Falls – a beautiful and unusual natural phenomena. Clear, cold springs of subterranean water seep through the lava and ripple down as tiny waterfalls and rapids into the Hvita River. A series of scenic footpaths takes you to different viewpoints around the waterfalls.  Also in the area is Barnafoss, the Children’s Falls.  The water here is a brilliantly blue color.  The falls are named after a sad incident that took place here long ago.

Next head to Deildartunguhver hot spring, Europe´s most powerful hot spring. The water rushes by rapidly at a speed of 180 liters (48 gallons) per second.   Right next to Deildartunguhver is Krauma Geothermal Baths. The spa’s hot water comes from  Deildartunguhver, at a temperature of 100°C (212°F). To achieve the perfect bathing temperature Krauma mixes the hot water with cold water  from Ok glacier, the smallest glacier in Iceland. Krauma offers five relaxing natural geothermal baths, a cold tub to get your blood circulation going, two calming saunas and a relaxation room where you can rest by the fireplace while listening to soothing music.  Krauma’s restaurant has a real West Icelandic focus with vegetables, dairy products and meat from area farms.

After your relaxing day, you will Return to Reykjavik in the early evening.
