Settle into your vehicle, and view Iceland’s stark landscapes as you travel north through the fjordlands of Borgarfjordur, known for their rich history and folk heritage.
Stop at Deildartunguhver, a geothermal field that boasts Europe’s most powerful hot spring. View the bubbling pools and capture photos of the billowing steam.
Continue to the Hraunfossar waterfalls, a series of cascades formed by rivulets from lava fields. See the falls tumbling down rocks, and learn how the water streams for about 0.5 miles (900 meters) from the lava to the river.
Next, travel to the Vídgelmir cave. The largest ever discovered in Iceland, and one of the world’s biggest, this spectacular lava cave was created by a volcanic eruption 1,100 years ago, and is easily accessible to all ages, including children aged four and over, thanks its walkways and state-of-the-art lighting.
On arrival, don your supplied helmet with a headlight attached, and take a tour led by an official guide. Descend into the depths and explore various chambers known for their geological formations. Admire the ice pinnacles, multi-colored walls, and lava stalagmites and stalactites as you learn about the cave’s geology and history.
After re-emerging into the daylight, head for the geothermal swimming pools at Húsafell. Filled with natural hot spring water, this outdoor complex boasts two family-friendly pools, a water chute, and hot tubs, all overlooking picturesque countryside.
Change into your bathing suit and enjoy a relaxing dip in the pools, basking in the warm waters and setting.
Lastly, return to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with a drop-off at or near your hotel.
Please note: guests are recommended to bring their own bathing suits and towels to swim at Húsafell. Bathing suits and towels are available to rent at the pool for an additional cost.

The lava cave was well worth the trip! Not your usual sightseeing our tour guide was excellent....you could tell he loved his job! The thermal pool at the hotel was small and not worth the stop for us, but probably good if you have younger children. Remember, you need to shower before and you are not in America!

This was a great tour. Our tour guide/driver was very courteous, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. She answered all our questions about their culture, traditions. We learned and appreciated it all. The cave tour was very interesting and enjoyed it. The cave tour guide was courteous, knowledgeable and answered our many questions. This is worth doing. We stopped for lunch at a very nice restaurant. After the tour enjoyed a dip in the geo thermal hot spring....as it snowed!

Long day(12hrs) but worth it. Lots packed in to your tour and tour guides were great! Lava cave was ok, there is a better one in Thingvellir NP. You will see beautiful landscape and waterfalls, and thermal pools were totally relaxing! Very nice, albeit long day. I don't recommend for little kids.

The lava caves and waterfalls are really beautiful - and the guide at the lava caves was great too, but we felt there was too much time at Husafell camp. It also wasn't great that we were stuck there for lunch with only one option - we didn't actually fancy the buffet lunch which we felt was over-priced, but we were stuck at Husafell so actually just ended up eating some crisps for lunch! The Thermal Pool is ok but is basically just a concrete swimming pool, not particularly scenic so just be aware of that!

Lava Cave was very interesting. Thermal pool a little disappointing. Just a big concrete pool. Maybe I didn't know what to expect. We went in January and everything around the pool was very icy. Watch your step.
