Iceland in a Nutshell by Super Jeep
We leave Reykjavik behind in our jeep and head for the UNESCO world heritage site Thingvellir, where the world’s first parliament met and the continental plates of Europe and North America meet. From there we follow one of Iceland’s highest mountain roads called Kaldidalur (the cold valley) to reach the glacier Langjökull, where we can walk on the ice. Our next stop is the historical lave cave Surtshellir, which in the past used to house the outlaws of Iceland. From there we drive to the waterfall Hraunfossar, which falls into a lake in the green lava field below. The drive continues onto the most powerful geothermic spring in Europe, historically important for Reykjavík and Deildartunguhve, and on our way back to Reykjavík we drive by the beautiful fjord of Hvalfjördur, where the contrasting scenery is amazing.
This day trip is not called ”Iceland in a nutshell” without reason, as it encapsulates the contrasting scenery of Iceland in one trip. In the winter variations may be possible, like walking on the glacier Langjökull to a little village called Borgarnes and then through the underground tunnel in Hvalfjördur in stead of driving through Kaldidalur and Thingvellir.
