The Silver Circle Tour

The Silver Circle area contains volcanic lava, waterfalls, glacial rivers, and hot springs rich in Viking history and legends. You can visit Hraunfossar, where water seems to burst through lava formations, and nearby are the brilliantly blue Barnafoss falls; Deildartunguhver is Europe’s most powerful hot spring and many more. These tours combine unique nature and Saga.

Recommended by the New York Times in 2017, Borgarfjörður in West Iceland is an up-and-coming place to visit.

 

Tour Highlights:

  • The Silver Circle
  • Borgarfjordur Fjord
  • Deildartunguhver Hot Spring
  • Krauma Hot Baths
  • Hraunfossar Waterfalls
  • Barnafoss Waterfall

We will pick you up early from your Reykjavik pickup location, so be sure to be well-rested. The pickup process might take up to 30 min, and it depends on your pickup location. The first destination on your tour is the fantastic Deildartunguhver, the most powerful hot spring in Europe.

Deildartunguhver

The hot spring will surely impress you with its power and rising steaming mist coming from the bubbling water. The towns nearby, Akranes and Borgarness, are provided with hot water from this fully functioning heating system. Thus, the hop spring is a natural and environmentally friendly way for human water consumption.

Krauma Natural Baths

The Natural baths use the heated water from Deildartunguhver and are mixed with actual glacial water from Iceland’s most miniature glacier. Combining those two sources of water gives the ideal temperature for you to bathe in. While letting the geothermal and nutrient-rich water rejuvenate you, you can relax in the beautiful place of the natural spa.

Hraunfossar Waterfalls

These waterfalls are genuinely majestic and are well known for their comprehensive and gentle falls. They are different in a way where a typical waterfall is a single body; this one is made up of many smaller streams that make a multitude of small white waterfalls. Hraunfossar Waterfalls then joins the Hvita river. You will enjoy a magnificent view of color with gleaming black rocks, green, red, and yellow plants, and of course, the deep blue river combined with the white-water streams.

Barnafoss Waterfalls

The second waterfall on this journey is the Barnafoss Waterfall or “the children’s falls” It received that name because two children fell into the falls and drowned. Even though the falls bear this horrifying tale, the Barnafoss Waterfall is breathtaking to look at.
