Behold the volcanic wonders of the Lake Mývatn area on this incredible sightseeing tour, where you will visit some of the most celebrated attractions of North Iceland before relaxing in the healing waters of the Mývatn Nature Baths. Anyone looking to experience most of the North in just one day should grab this opportunity now.

Your adventure begins at the Information Center at Lake Mývatn, located only 95 kilometres from Akureyri, from which you will begin exploring the otherworldly sceneries at hand. The lake itself was formed by a volcanic eruption more than 2000 years ago, and the resulting landscapes include rootless steam vents, bubbling mud pools and impressive basalt rock formations.

You will make a stop at the hot spring area of Námaskarð Pass and the pseudocraters called Skútustaðagígar. These stunning craters are protected as a natural wetlands conservation area and were created by gas explosions when hot lava from Krafla Volcano flowed freely over these wetlands.

You will also traverse through the unique and eerie lava formations of Dimmuborgir, the ‘dark fortress’, one of the most cherished natural pearls of North Iceland. If the weather allows, get ready to descend into the lava cave Grjótagjá, an ancient bathing spot filled with rift water. This enigmatic cave was also the shooting location of a famous love scene from Game of Thrones.

Next on the agenda are visits to two of the most famed waterfalls of North Iceland, Selfoss and Dettifoss. The latter has a width of no less than 100 metres and is labelled as the most powerful waterfall in Europe, so prepare to feel the rumbling beneath your feet as you feast your eyes on this natural marvel.

Your excursion concludes with a much-deserved soak in the Mývatn Nature Baths, often compared to the Blue Lagoon, which has mineral-rich waters also renowned for their skin-healing abilities.

Secure your spot now for this fantastic chance of enjoying the best of which North Iceland has to offer. Check availability by choosing a date.
