Glymur waterfall is Iceland´s second highest and with its height of almost 200 meters it is an awesome and spectacular sight. After the underwater traffic tunnel under Hvalfjörður (Whale fjord) opened in 1998 it has become a more secluded place as most tourists and natives do not drive past it as the modern human has places to go and places to be, and today the sight is a well-kept secret. Reykjavik Outventure specializes in small group tours. Our team are big nature lovers that love to hike and show travellers our spectacular nature. We have put some of Iceland’s best activities in one tour for you to get the most out of your stay here in Iceland.

The tour will start with nice bath at the Secret Lagoon by Flúðir village http://secretlagoon.is/ The Secret Lagoon consists of natural hot springs which have been kept natural and unique so guests can get the true Icelandic feeling. The natural surroundings of the pool and the steam rising into the air gives the place a magical feeling. The warm water holds 38 – 40 degrees Celsius (100 – 104 Fahrenheit) all year. In the area there are several geothermal spots and a little geyser which erupts every five minutes, showing off for the guests relaxing in the hot spring.
After a nice relax at the Lagoon it is time for a gourmet buffet lunch at Flúðir village. After lunch you will head for Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every five minutes.
From Geysir you had to Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider to be the queen of Icelandic waterfalls as it is both high and mighty and stumbles dramatically in a deep gorge.
Our last stop will be at Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic Parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. At Þingvellir you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North – America and Eurasian tectonic plates and you will be able to stand where the Viking settlers stood centuries ago to edict national laws.
After the visit to Þingvellir you will head back to Reykjavík.
Just remember to bring your bathing suits and towel!

Min participants: 20 pax.
Set sail from Reykjavík’s Old Harbour for your private Sea Angling tour. The experienced crew will take you to great fishing grounds and assist with setting up the fishing poles.
This tour is great for those who have never fished before and those who are fishing experts, as the crew can help with as much or as little as you prefer.
The most common types of fish caught are cod, haddock, pollock and the occasional Atlantic wolffish.
After you finish fishing, the crew will grill the catch on board and serve it with potatoes and a cold sauce to enjoy as you head back to land.
Protective clothing, fishing rods and bait are included. There is equipment for up to 18 people to fish at one time, and space for up to 50 passengers on a fishing tour to ensure that there’s plenty of space and time for people to take turns fishing.
