This tour will connect amazing nature, fantastic local farm cuisine and a relaxing time at the geothermal hot spring of Mývatn Nature Baths. You'll get a luxury experience at an affordable price as you'll travel in a small group in an SUV to some of Iceland's most beautiful sites accompanied by a professional guide.

The tour starts in the morning when you are picked you up from your accommodation in Akureyri or the local airport. You'll then drive away from the town, on the east side of Eyjafjörður fjord, to the first stop of the day, the beautiful Goðafoss waterfall. 

From there you will be driven to Lake Mývatn where you will find numerous sightseeing spots like Dimmuborgir lava fields, Grjótagjá hot spring, and Námaskarð geothermal area. The landscapes around the lake itself are also spectacular.

Lake Mývatn is steeped in both history and folklore, from space explorations and Game of Thrones to trolls and yule lads. Your local guide will tell you all about the stories and legends of the place as you traverse the area.

Near the lake, you'll find the beautiful cowshed farm resort and restaurant. You'll get to enjoy a delicious 2-course lunch at the restaurant of either lamb or char from the lake, as well as get a fantastic view of Hverafjall mountain as you enjoy the food. 

After lunch, you'll get to relax at the geothermal hot springs at Mývatn Nature Baths. The warm water will soothe any aching muscles as you soak in the blue water, surrounded by lava, lake and volcanoes. 

After towelling off, it is time to drive back to Akureyri where you can enjoy the relaxing and cosy atmosphere that the 'Capital of the North' has to offer.

This was a wonderful tour and I can't say enough good things. Our tour guide, Pétur, was friendly and knowledgeable and really made it a comfortable experience. (Apologies if I spelled that wrong, I did my best Pétur, I promise!) We were fortunate to have a one on one experience, and I think in that situation there can be some awkwardness - but that wasn't an issue at all. Not only were the sites we visited mind boggling gorgeous, but it was also a chance to speak with a local and really get a perspective you might not ordinarily get on scheduled tours of very touristy sites. As for the spots where we stopped - just wow. Absolute, otherworldly beauty. I saw a lot of waterfalls during my time in Iceland, but Goðafoss may be my very favorite. Foss is one of the few Icelandic words I managed to not completely mangle, so go see some of those amazing Foss... and I don't know how to make that plural, I apologize. One more shout out to Pétur for helping me try some more complicated Icelandic words and not mocking me too terribly as I mangled his beautiful language. I did my best. Dimmuborgir honestly made me feel like I was walking through the Neverending Story. No siting of the Yule cat, however, which was my secret unrealistic wish, seeing as it doesn't exist. What can I say, I just love a cat that eats children, it tickles me. Námaskarð was basically Mars, it's like they took you to Mars, I'm not even joking. The meal at cowshed farm resort was lovely - I recommend the lamb. Actually, just in general - eat lamb while you're in Iceland, you won't regret it. And of course, the Mývatn Nature Baths. I don't even need to describe how wonderful it felt to just float in the warm water and see the view. Of the few nature baths we visited on our trip, this one had the best views. I absolutely recommend this tour - it is worth every penny (Króna). And if you're lucky enough to have Pétur as a guide, please tell him Bethany and Dana say hello!
