Description

Set out on an exclusive eight-hour tour to discover the natural treasures of North Iceland, from the Godafoss waterfall to the beautiful Myvatn Nature Baths. This private trip is perfect for those wanting a tailored sightseeing experience from Akureyri.

Your day begins with a morning pick-up from your accommodation in Akureyri. You'll travel in a minibus with complimentary Wi-Fi on board, enjoying the personalized service of a private excursion. 

The journey starts by traveling along the Eyjafjordur fjord. The drive offers fantastic views of the fjord's tranquil waters, presenting a taste of the awe-inspiring scenery to come.

The first stop on your adventure is Godafoss waterfall, a pristine natural wonder known as the "Waterfall of the Gods." This spectacular cascade holds a special place in Icelandic history and showcases the raw beauty of Iceland's landscapes.

Next, you'll explore the enchanting Lake Myvatn area, famous for its geological diversity and abundant wildlife. Your guide will introduce you to some of the region's most captivating sites. 

First, you'll visit the Skutustadagigar pseudo-craters, a rare phenomenon found in only a few places worldwide. These formations add a unique charm to the landscape and offer a glimpse into the area's volcanic past.

Then, your guide will take you to the Dimmuborgir lava formations, a surreal labyrinth of twisted rocks and unique structures. Often referred to as the "Dark Castles," this area is rich in local legends and presents a mystical atmosphere unlike any other.

Afterward, you'll visit the Grjotagja cave, where a hot blue river flows through a remarkable landscape. This hidden gem is renowned for its striking beauty.

Your journey then takes you to the Hverir geothermal area, where nature's power is fully displayed. Here, you'll see bubbling mud pots, steaming fumaroles, and colorful earth that allows you to explore the geothermal power of Iceland up close.

The highlight of your tour is a visit to the Myvatn Nature Baths. Here, you can soak in the soothing milky-blue geothermal water, enjoying the peaceful setting and the mineral-rich waters.

The baths boast stunning surroundings with panoramic vistas, adding to your rejuvenating experience. Hot spring bathing is the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploration. You can add an admission ticket to the spa during booking for an extra cost.

If time allows, your guide will take you to a scenic vantage point overlooking the Eyjafjordur fjord for a final photo opportunity. This spot offers breathtaking views of the fjord and the town of Akureyri nestled along its shores.
