About the tour

We pick you up at the accommodation in Reykjavik and continue towards the beautiful fjord, Hvalfjordur (e. Whale Fjord). Hvalfjordur offers a view over unforgettable landscapes and a unique panoramic view you will never forget. We will head to Botnsdalur, a valley known for its stunning nature and the 198 m (0.12 mi) high Glymur Waterfall. Once we reach the end of the road we start our hike and set on a 2.5-hour hiking tour through immense canyons, a lush birch forest and enigmatic lava fields. During our hike, we will come across a small cave named Thvotthellir or "washing cave". Through the cave, you will be able to see the wonder that awaits us, Glymur. The majestic waterfall situated in a fertile oasis where a clear and joyous stream runs among moss and tall grass.
