Why You Should Visit West Iceland
Volcanic landscapes, glaciers, caves, geothermal spas and black sand beaches – all beyond the Golden Circle but still just 45 minutes from Reykjavik.
Whether you are a seasoned Golden Circle explorer or new to the Land of Fire and Ice, we think that it is time you consider adding the West of Iceland to your school’s trip wish list.
Not only does the west of Iceland take you off the tourist trail but it also allows your group to visit some of the most jaw dropping scenery and iconic sights of Iceland including Iceland’s most photographed mountain (Kirkufell), Iceland’s largest lava tube (The Cave Vidgelmir) and even tunnel inside Iceland’s second largest glacier (Langjokull aka Into the Glacier).
