Into the Glacier & Krauma


DURATION 8-9HRS PICKUP TIME 9.00 - or up on request

A scenic mid-day drive from Reykjavík to the west coast through Hvalfjörður (Whale vfjord) tunnel past Borgarnes to the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss lava waterfalls. Hraunfossar and Barnafossar are unique waterfalls, famous for their beauty. From there the journey lies through Húsafell, which is a beautiful nature spot situated in shelter from the mountains and the glacier. From there we are headed towards Kaldidalur, Cold Valley mountain road and up on to the massive Langjökull glacier, this is where our specially outfitted super jeeps come handy. If you ever wanted a North Pole feeling, this might come close to it.

Next up are man-made ice caves (Into the Glacier) dug Into Iceland’s second largest glacier. The tour inside the ice cave takes about 1 hour. After the ice cave we return back through Húsafell and the beautiful country site to Krauma. Krauma is a spa and a restaurant where you can relax in the hot geothermal water that comes from the nearby hot spring Deildartunguhver. Deildartunguhver is the most powerful hot spring in the world and pumps up 180 liters per second. After you have been relaxing and been unstressed in the spa you can enjoy the fine food from the restaurant in Krauma. As we drive back to Reykjavík from Krauma, the driver will be looking out for northern lights activity.

Now we are celebrating 25 years together!

In the year 1995, Björk and Kristján started Mountain Taxi with one driver guide and one vehicle. 25 years later, we’re still at it! Glaciers have moved, volcanoes have erupted and as we say in Iceland, a lot of water has run to sea, but one thing remains the same. Our passion to explore and give you the best experience of Iceland possible.

We’re happy to announce that it’s time to make an old dream come true and start a new chapter in Mountain Taxi history. From the start of 2020 we will be focusing solely on private tours to give you the best possible experience of our wonderful island. As a part of this new chapter we will no longer be ofering water in plastic bottles, but giving our guests reusable, eco-friendly water bottles. It’s been a great 25 years, and we look forward to writing the next chapter with you!

Thank you!

Björk, Kristján & the Mountain Taxi team.
