This 8 hour winter tour to one of the most interesting locations in North Iceland focuses on the most attractive features of the Lake Myvatn area and its surroundings.
The Lake Mývatn area is often called the diamond of the north and is widely known for its natural beauty. On this tour you get the chance to explore the highlights of the area with an experienced, local tour guide.
First we drive along the coast of Eyjafjörður fjord, across the mountain pass Víkurskarð to the valley of Fnjóskadalur. We make our first stop at the famous Godafoss waterfall. Goðafoss is not only famous for its breathtaking beauty but also for its significant historic value related to the Christianisation of Iceland. From Godafoss the tour continues through the valley of Reykjadalur to Skutustadir in the Lake Myvatn district. Next stop is at Dimmuborgir, a lava labyrinth formed around 2300 years ago when a partly cooled lava lake drained out and left magnificent basaltic pillars and sculptures. After a short walk in Dimmuborgir the tour continues through the lava field to Grjotagja, a popular underground bathing cave among the locals before the Krafla Fires (1975-1984) when the water became too hot to bathe in.
Next we explore the fumarole fields of Hverarond (Namaskard) where ground water is heated by an underground magma intrusion. Sulphur deposits are brought to the surface and the area is characterized by a strong smell of sulphur. After a short walk around the fumaroles we head for the final destination of the tour, the Myvatn Nature Baths, where visitors get the chance to bathe in the silky smooth geothermal water. After the stop in the nature baths we drive back to Akureyri where estimated arrival time is between 16:00-17:00.
Note: The itinerary may be altered due to weather/road conditions. This may result in cancellation of the tour or delayed schedule.
