What you'll do

I will guide you in an exclusive day trip to some hidden gems of the Hvalfjord and Vesturlands, to off-the-beaten-track places and hidden treasures. First, we will visit an Elf-Stone with the best view of the fjord, and take a dip in a privately owned waterfall with a bathing pool (only in summer for those willing to brave the cold but refreshing waters). Then we explore the ruins of a military fort, with amazing options for photography. We then take a short hike through a beautiful hidden hiking path guarded by troll stones, following a path with waterfalls and basalt columns, and have lunch and a coffee break. We will relax in a paradise on earth with multiple waterfalls, pools, and serene views. We then explore a little beach where we can go crystal hunting (I guarantee we will find unique, beautiful crystals when the tide is low). We will circle back, and if we have time stop at either a small cave you can walk through, or spectacular wavy red lava formations. We finish our tour at a hot spring, and dip fully into the relaxing waters to decompress. ***Please inquire about any dates and times that are not on calendar, and I will try to schedule with you a tour if I'm available
