What you can expect

A great tour around the lake Mývatn area where we see how the power of nature has formed the country and how it's still working beneath our feet. We explore beautiful spots and enjoy the stunning scenery along the way. This tour is private, so only you will be on board

We start our tour in Akureyri and drive east towards the beautiful Godafoss waterfall where we'll make our first stop, the waterfall is a place of significant historic value connected with when Icelanders took Christianity.

We continue east from Godafoss, we'll pass through the valley of Reykjadalur and head to Skútustadir where we see the pseudocraters.

Our next stop is the stunning lava formations at Dimmuborgir. Dimmuborgir where formed about 2300 years ago when a partly cooled lava lake drained out and left magnificent basalt pillars and sculptures.

After a short walk in Dimmuborgir we'll travel to Grjótagjá which was a popular underground bathing cave until the volcanic eruptions at Krafla 1975-1984, those eruptions heated the water in the cave so now it's too hot to bathe there.

We now continue through the Námaskard pass and go to the Hverarönd fumarole fields which is a quite spectacular area showing earth's inner power.

After this we'll be heading back towards Akureyri, If time, weather and conditions allow we'll find some good places to stop for pictures
