Varmahlid – Arrive in Iceland and Enjoy a Scenic Drive to Skagafjordur Bay
You will likely hold your partner’s hand as your plane descends into Keflavik International Airport. In the summer and spring, the lush grass spreads to the shoreline whereas in the autumn, the trees turn shades of auburn and gold. In the winter, a thin blanket of snow spreads to the hills. Whatever your first image, the countryside adds the brilliant sheen of the plains and the shimmering cobalt waters of the Atlantic. You will land at the airport and your private transfer will greet you at baggage claim. You leave the airport and pass through Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, as you drive on Highway No. 1, which is known as the Ring Road. Around the town of Stadarskali, small farmhouses begin to rise along the pastoral landscape as white church spires stand above the rolling hills.
Near the town of Hvammstangi, the turquoise water from the fjord laps against the emerald grass shoreline as white houses with red roofs contrast with the green and blue hues of the natural landscape. The geothermal activity allows locals to cultivate tropical and sub-tropical fruits and vegetables in the abundant greenhouses around the region. You can stop at Hraunfossar Waterfalls, also referred to as the Lava Waterfalls where rivulets emerge from beneath the mossy lava field and cover a distance of more than 2,950 feet. The lava originally flowed from an erupting volcano located beneath the Langjokull Glacier and the water streams over the boulders and rocks that feed into the Hvita River.
You can stand and watch as the water turns an icy blue as if filters into the river. The combination of rugged lava rocks, soft moss, and streaming water creates an unparalleled romantic atmosphere. If the two of you prefer adventure, you can make your way to the Surtshellir in the same lava field. The cave is famous for its length, making it the longest ice cave in Iceland at more than two miles deep. In the colder months, ice crystals form like thin, long candles along the deeper recesses of the cave. Even on your first day in Iceland, you will have already shared adventure, seclusion, and beauty which will set the tone for your entire tour.
