Sightseeing Tour from Akureyri | Waterfalls & Myvatn Nature Baths
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.
