Let us take you on a tour over Kaldidalur, the second highest pass in Iceland which is often nicknamed "Highland for beginners" being the shortest highland track in Iceland.
We drive from Reykjavik to west through the tunnel underneath the fjord Hvalfjordur to meet our guide at the geothermal area at Deildartunguhver. This thermal spring is the largest one in Iceland, providing 180 l/sec of 100°C hot water.
From there we visit the beautiful waterfalls of Barnafoss and Hraunfossar viewing the fresh blue color of the river Hvita against the white glacial waterfalls. After a short break there we head for the pass of Kaldidalur which gets its name from the valley it crosses meaning Cold valley. The road takes us between the small glaciers Thorisjokull and Ok and the Langjokull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland.
We will stop at the mountain cabin Jaki for a refreshing walk towards the glacier. From there we drive south to Thingvellir national park, where we have a break. There you can get in touch with history and even heart of the nation.
