Glymur waterfall hike & swimming

Glymur waterfall is Iceland´s second highest and with its height of almost 200 meters it is an awesome and spectacular sight. After the underwater traffic tunnel under Hvalfjörður (Whale fjord) opened in 1998 it has become a more secluded place as most tourists and natives do not drive past it as the modern human has places to go and places to be, and today the sight is a well kept secret.

Tour Description

One of our Vikings will pick you up at your hotel and set off from Reykjavik and head out to Hvalfjörður, through the tunnel, a drive that takes around an hour or a little less so there is plenty of time to ask your local guide anything you may be wondering about this small and mysterious nation, and the hipsters that inhabit it. HÚH! (Viking clap) When we get to the foothills we tie our shoes and make our way up the mountain and the hike itself takes around an hour and a half. At the waterfall itself we will take a good rest as we take in the sights and there will be a local delicacy on the menu and we will recharge our batteries before we head down again.

On our way back into Reykjavik we will stop at one of Iceland´s local swimming pools and wind down in the ,,heitur pottur´´ (jacuzzi) like the Icelanders have done for centuries and regenerate those sore muscles, which you will definitely feel on your legs and feet after the hike. After the pool you will feel reborn and your guide will take you back to your hotel and with a 100 percent battery charge in your body you are sure to grab Reykjavik´s famous night life by the throat.
