Silversea Expedition Cruises A Reykjavik

Reykjavik

Sprawling Reykjavík, the nation's nerve center and government seat, is home to half the island's population. On a bay overlooked by proud Mt. Esja (pronounced eh-shyuh), with its ever-changing hues, Reykjavík presents a colorful sight, its concrete houses painted in light colors and topped by vibrant red, blue, and green roofs. In contrast to the almost treeless countryside, Reykjavík has many tall, native birches, rowans, and willows, as well as imported aspen, pines, and spruces.Reykjavík's name comes from the Icelandic words for smoke, reykur, and bay, vík.

In AD 874, Norseman Ingólfur Arnarson saw Iceland rising out of the misty sea and came ashore at a bay eerily shrouded with plumes of steam from nearby hot springs. Today most of the houses in Reykjavík are heated by near-boiling water from the hot springs. Natural heating avoids air pollution; there's no smoke around. You may notice, however, that the hot water brings a slight sulfur smell to the bathroom.Prices are easily on a par with other major European cities. A practical option is to purchase a Reykjavík City Card at the Tourist Information Center or at the Reykjavík Youth Hostel. This card permits unlimited bus usage and admission to any of the city's seven pools, the Family Park and Zoo, and city museums. The cards are valid for one (ISK 3,300), two (ISK 4,400), or three days (ISK 4,900), and they pay for themselves after three or four uses a day. Even lacking the City Card, paying admission (ISK 500, or ISK 250 for seniors and people with disabilities) to one of the city art museums (Hafnarhús, Kjarvalsstaðir, or Ásmundarsafn) gets you free same-day admission to the other two.

4x4 Glacier Safari with Ice Cave Visit

Indulge your senses with Iceland's glacial beauty and unique Ice Cave during this exhilarating, full-day, off-road excursion.


Thingvellir National Park, Cold Valley and Langjökull Glacier

Depart the pier aboard a modified, off-road super-truck for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive to Thingvellir National Park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. After entering the park, explore the landscape of Iceland's early parliament. Delving into the majestic hinterland, drive along the dramatic Cold Valley to Langjökull Glacier (Long Glacier). Langjokull is approximately 4,460 feet (about 1,359 metres) in length and approximately 4,000 feet (about 1,219 metres) above sea level, and spans an area of approximately 366 square miles (about 948 square kilometres). Upon arrival at the Langjökull Glacier, your expert driver takes your super-truck adventure to the next level during a once-in-a-lifetime journey over the ice and snow to the Ice Cave.


Ice Cave, Chapel and Bar, and White-and-Blue Ice

Located on the flanks of Iceland's second-largest glacier, the Ice Cave is located approximately 100 feet (about 30.5 metres) below the glacier's surface, and stretches approximately 800 feet (about 244 metres) in length. This amazing new attraction is a man-made cave that stretches deep into the glacier, and consists of a series of tunnels and caves carved through solid glacial ice. There is also an Ice Chapel and an Ice Bar. Crevasses that pull the glacier apart, along with sunlight penetrating the packed ice, are among the natural wonders to be seen during your guided visit. This cave-like tunnel leads into the icy underground, and, as the ice gets older, the colour changes from white to a magnificent, deep blue.


Húsafell, Lunch, Hraunfoss and Barnafoss Waterfalls, and Tunnel

Your guided glacier visit includes an introduction to glaciology, and an opportunity to learn about the effect climate change has on glaciers. The cave also provides glaciologists, meteorologists and other scientists with the ability to study the glacier in a new way. After this amazing experience, re-board your supertruck head back to the woodlands of Húsafell and proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, your drive continues on to the nearby Hraunfoss and Barnafoss waterfalls; two of Iceland's most picturesque cascades. Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 100-minute drive back to the pier via the Hvalfjorour Tunnel and coastline.

4x4 Super-Truck Adventure

Get ready for an action-packed Super truck adventure during this amazing journey through some of Iceland's most stunning terrain.


Nowhere but in Iceland will one find vehicles like the ones we use on this tour. Crafted for uniquely tough conditions and rugged terrain even a term for them had to be invented; "Super Trucks". The vehicles are the result of decades of technical innovation and development.


Hengill Volcano, Lake Thingvallavatn and Nesjavellir Power Plant

Shortly after heading out of Reykjavík we'll drive up the mountain Úlfarsfell, where we'll have a spectacular view over Reykjavík and the bay. From there we'll continue to the Mountain Hengill area. Hengill is an active volcano, evidenced by its numerous hot springs and fumaroles, but the last eruption occurred approximately 2000 years ago. The volcano is an important source of energy for the south of the country, which is captured at the Nesjavellir power station. Near Nesjavellir we'll stop at a vantage point with a panoramic view over the large Lake Þingvallavatn and the beautiful region called Bláskógar ("Blue forests").


Hveragerði Village and Thousand Waters Trail

Continuing on we'll drive a gravel road along the lake and from there through lush woodlands to Hveragerði Village. There we will make a short comfort stop before continuing on our adventure.


After re-boarding the Super Trucks we head off the beaten track, by way of a trail known as "The Thousand Waters". Our convoy winds its way through numerous rivers, mud banks and streams. Enjoy the ride and savour the unique opportunity of experiencing Iceland's untamed nature. After all this excitement the trucks continue on an effortless drive back to Reykjavík harbour.

Follwing lunch at a local restaurant, depart for some relaxing time at the Blue Lagoon natural geothermal spa located in the middle of a beautiful lava field. Drive through Reykjavik's suburbs before entering into the surreal lava landscape of the Reykjanes Peninsula. The water of the lagoon is 37-39 degrees centigrade (98 - 102 Fahrenheit) mineral rich and reputed for its healing properties. The blue colour and the high lava wall surrounding the Lagoon create quite a unique atmosphere. Dressing rooms and showers are provided for men and women separately. For hygienic purposes, it is expected (in line with local customs) to take a shower without swimwear before entering the Lagoon. Following your visit, return to Reykjavik to check in to your hotel.

Dinner will be served in Deplar.


Day 3 -This will be a day of exploring Iceland's North. There will be several options available to keep you busy: chose kayaking or go fishing on nearby Stifluvatn, go mountain-biking or visit Siglufjordur and its famous Herring Era Museum. A special activity would be to go whale watching in Eyjafjordur, looking for white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises, as well as humpback and minke whales. You could also go on a RIB safari or go horseback riding. Enjoy an evening around a bonfire and let a local storyteller entertain you with tales of elves and trolls and other hidden beings.

There you will enter a man-made ice tunnel at 1200 meters above sea level. Deep within the glacier you will feel transported into another dimension, a world of stunningly beautiful blue ice at the heart of this glacier. After refreshment inside a special ice cave, your helicopter will take you to the picturesque island Arnarey in the bay of Breidafjordur. A private lunch with the freshest produce of West Iceland will be set up for you. Later fly across Breidafjordur to Stykkisholmur, located on the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
