Immerse yourself in the stunning nature of North Iceland on this wide-ranging sightseeing tour that concludes with a relaxing soak in the healing waters of Mývatn Nature Baths. Anyone looking for the perfect day in North Iceland should not let this incredible excursion slip by.

Your adventure begins with a morning pickup in Akureyri, the Capital of the North. You will then drive along the scenic coastline of fjord Eyjafjörður, all the way through the lush valley Fnjóskadalur. Remember to pack your camera since the sightseeing has barely begun.

The first proper stop of the tour will be at Goðafoss, 'the Waterfall of the Gods'. Then, you will head to the Lake Mývatn area, one of the North’s most prized natural pearls. The lake’s volcanic landscapes are dotted with lava pillars, bubbling mud pools and steaming hot vents.

Some of the highlights of Lake Mývatn include the pseudocraters Skútustaðagígar, the eerie rocky citadel that is Dimmuborgir, and Grjótagjá—a cave and ancient bathing spot filled with natural hot water.

You will also be visiting both the waterfall Selfoss, and Europe’s most powerful waterfall called Dettifoss which boast a cascading drop of 45 metres and a width of 100 metres, as well as one of the most impressive canyons in all of Iceland.

You will also make your way to the hot spring area of Námaskarð Pass, so get ready to enjoy a first-hand experience of Iceland's geothermal activity, as the area’s ground heat is maintained by the volcano Krafla.

Last but not least, you will be brought to the Mývatn Nature Baths to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating soak in their renowned mineral-rich waters.

Don’t miss out on your perfect day enjoying the attractions of North Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

This tour was amazing. We were just two people (me and girlfriend) and the guide took us to waterfalls, lava fields, caves and natural baths. We took this tour in the beginning of february and some roads were close for who didn't take tours, this was the only way to see the best attractions in the North. We also really appreciate the company of the guide who was clear, interesting and absolutely brilliant. Higly recommended.

This tour is the perfect one if you does not have enough time in the north of Iceland. I enjoyed so much the lava fields and the amazing waterfalls. Somehow in our tour we missed the cave which by photos I can see is marvelous, I would love to see them. The natural baths are amazing, but I recommend to spend more time on it. It takes around 20 minutes to actually get into the water and 20 to get ready to go home, so one hour stop is reduce to 20 minutes into the pool. It's pretty relaxing, and so enjoyable but it would be better to spend minium an hour inside, I would prefer hour and a half to take out the most of the entrance ticket.
