On this day tour you get to discover all the best of what Iceland has to offer. Our first destination is the stunning Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s first parliament, Alþingi, was founded in the year 930 AD. Two continental plates split on this location.
We then challenge the 4×4 super jeep and drive on the mountain track in the desert valley of Kaldidalur, we will stop at the Glacier Langjökull and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from the glacier. You have the option to pay extra to visit the ice tunnel in Langjökull glacier. If not, we also have the option of visiting Cave Víðgelmir “The Cave”, which is the largest of Icelandic lava tube caves, by volume. Cave Víðgelmir has amazing colors and lava formations that are just waiting to be discovered in the depths of the earth. The gear is provided by the caving guide, and you would spend about 1 hour exploring the cave.
