The waterfall Glymur, is 198 meters tall and is the highest in Iceland and located at the end of the bay Hvalfjordur. From Brekka / Langholt drive left and along the Rd 47 for 20 minutes and take a left turn on the trail road when you see the sign, “Glymur”. This is a great hike, but needs to be made with a care in the winter time and in slippery conditions. This great hike takes about one hour, but the extended hike up along the waterfall and across the river up to the top and back (the best way to see the falls) takes approximately 3 to 4 hours.
Head to the Golden Circle by driving around the bay Hvalfjordur and take the Rd 48 to Thingvellir, then on to Geysir and Gullfoss and the same way back. Alternatively take the tunnel in the to direction to Reykjavik and Rd 36 to Thingvellir. As a part of the circle during summer and driving a 4x4 vehicle you can reach Gullfoss ‘from behind’ by turning left on Rd 50 and right on Rd 52. Then go on the beautiful trail F338 south of the glacier Langjokull. The tour could take up to 8 hours.
Waterfalls Hraunfossar & Barnafoss
You can reach the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss by driving to the left onto Rd 47 and then left again onto Rd 53 which merges into Rd 518 (alternatively you take Rd 47 to your right, which merges into Rd 1, then off to your right before the town of Borgarnes onto Rd 518. It takes up to 1.5 hours to get there.
Deildartunguhver Hot Spring
Deildartunguhver, the biggest hot spring in Europe yielding almost 200 liters of boiling water in a second, is to your left when driving on the Rd 518, before you reach Reykholt.
By driving through the town Borgarnes, take the Rd 54 to your left and you can see the peninsula Snæfellsnes and its spectacular views. It will take you a whole day to make this rewarding tour. Still the Settlement Center in Borgarnes, with the two exhibitions on the first decades of the Icelandic history (www.landnam.is), is really to be recommended.
