Iceland in Miniature

The Sn√¶fellsnes Peninsula is often called “Iceland in Miniature”. It is the perfect combination of waterfalls, rough lava fields, black sand beaches, and Icelandic folklore. We head west and our first stop is a small town called Borgarnes. After a quick stop to buy some snacks and refreshments we are on our way to the Peninsula. In good weather conditions, we can already see the glacier that sits atop a stratovolcano that is well known from the Novel “Journey to the center of the earth”.

Berserkjahraun Lava Field

The first stop is Berserkjahraun lava field. It was created around 4.000 years ago after the three surrounding volcanos erupted shortly after each other. The name also comes from an exciting story back from the Viking age. Your guide will tell you all about it and he’ll show you the way to a secret and hidden waterfall.

Kirkjufell

The most photographed mountain in Iceland is next on our list. You probably noticed it on the TV show “Game of Thrones”. It is surrounded by a beautiful waterfall you’ll get enough time to stroll around the walking paths to explore the area.

Saxhóll Volcanic Crater

Countless volcanic craters can be seen during the drive. Now it’s time to put a foot on one of the dormant craters on the peninsula. Saxh√≥ll was created around 3.000 years ago and it is 100m high. A staircase makes the walk to the top very easy and the reward is a brilliant view over the surrounding lava fields.

Dj√ļpal√≥nssandur

Iceland is known for its black sand beaches. Dj√ļpal√≥nssandur is one of them and this place will definitely amaze you. Back in the day, a harbor for fishing boats could be found here and all the fishermen had to prove their strength beforehand. In order to do that, they had to lift stones of different weights. Only the strongest were able to secure a spot on one of the boats. The stones still can be found on the beach and you will have a chance to test your own strength.

Arnastapi

The next stop will be in Arnastapi, a beautiful and charming fishing village. During the time, powerful waves eroded the cliffs and left the stunning rock formations behind that can be seen today. Also, a sculpture of B√°r√įur Sn√¶fells√°s, the guardian of the Penninsula, can be found here.

Budakirkja Black Church

The church was build in 1703. After the Danish king decided to dismiss the church in 1819, several residents fought for the reclamation and in 1849 they got the allowance to build a new chapel. A woman named Steinunn saved some of the old artifacts and thanks to her, we can still see them today.

Seal Colony at Ytri-Tunga

We are already on our way to Reykjavik, but we will have one last stop at a beautiful golden-colored beach. Huge seal colonies can be found at this beach during the whole year and your guide will lead you to the place where you can find them.

Into The Glacier – From Klaki Base Camp

Into the Glacier

The world’s largest man-made ice tunnel

Into the Glacier classic tour from Klaki base camp invites you to explore the untouched beauty of Langjokull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier. Walk inside the man-made ice tunnel that leads right to the heart of the glacier and learn exciting facts about Icelandic glaciers along the way.

Langjökull Glacier

Langjökull (the Long Glacier) is the second largest in Iceland. It covers an area of about 950 km² and most of it rises between 1200 and 1300 m above sea level. It rests on a massif of hyaloclastite mountains.

The Glaciers

The southwestern part of the ice cap is called Geitlandsj√∂kull, which rises to an elevation of 1400 meters. To the south of Geitlandsj√∂kull and separated from the main ice cap, is the smaller (1350 m) √ě√≥risj√∂kull, which sits atop an irregular table mountain.

The man-made cave

Until now, what lay beneath the surface of the Langj√∂kull glacier, had been a mystery, known only by a small group of scientists and glaciologists. In 2010 however, Baldvin Einarsson and Hallgrimur √Ėrn Arngr√≠msson had a bold and daring vision, to take people not just around and onto the glacier, but also inside the heart of the remote and extraordinary ice cap, to see the magnificent ‚Äúblue ice‚ÄĚ which is buried deep beneath the surface.

Who we are

We are the people who got the crazy idea of drilling a tunnel into a glacier and actually made it happen! We want to give people the chance to experience this amazing natural wonder and see the Langjökull glacier from the inside. Learn, feel and absorb the ice, taking home memories that are truly out of this world!

The Into the Glacier Tour

From the Klaki base camp, specially modified monster trucks will take you to the glacier. These powerful vehicles turn the trip to the glacier into an adventure itself!

Hekla was notorious in medieval Europe as it was believed to be the entrance to hell. Hekla has erupted approximately 20 times since the county was settled in the ninth century.

Driving along the volcano

The variations in the lava and vegetation shaped by the forces of erosion create a spectacular setting for the volcano. We drive right up to the edge of the youngest lava field formed during the 2000 eruption. If weather permits, we drive up along the volcano’s ridge, which is 900 meters above sea level. From this height, we can enjoy a splendid view of the surrounding region.
