All about the trip
We begin our tour with a visit to Bifröst. On the way towards the north, we will stop for a pleasant walk through twin craters Grábrók and Grábrókarfell. The Grábrók crater was formed in a fissure eruption approximately 3400 years ago.
Kolugljúfur is a magnificent 2 km long and 20-25 m deep canyon with waterfalls, which are named Kolufossar due to the local folktale about the Troll woman Kola. A drive through the side of the canyon and looking at this peaceful river as it drops into the gorge divided as two scenic waterfalls is a powerful experience. This sight is simply magnificent.
Borgarvirki also known as the “Citadel” is a columnar basalt fortress and a volcanic plug. It is a unique natural phenomenon, altered by humans in earlier centuries. There are steps leading up to the top. As you reach the top, there is a wide panoramic view over a large part of the region and a viewfinder is in place to help locate some of the important landmarks.
Our next stop, Vatnsnes, is one of the biggest colonies of seals in Iceland. Do not miss this incredible spectacle of seals basking on the rocks and observing you with their curious eyes. You will get closer to nature than you had ever imagined.
Next stop is Hvammstangi. It is the only town of the peninsula. A quiet and peaceful place. A typical area full of charm, beautiful landscapes, great views of the mountains.
The last checkpoint is Hvítserkur. It is the most famous Icelandic rock. You can see many birds shelter in every corner of the rock cut out by the erosion of the ocean. Hvítserkur rock offers a landscape which constantly moves at the rhythm of time and tides. It delivers a stunning and powerful sight and show. You could have the sensation that the rock is alive.
