The Magical Nature and Diversity of the North
The Diamond Circle Classic is a tour that covers a lot of ground and includes most of North Iceland’s highlights in one day. Europe's most powerful waterfall Dettifoss, Lake Myvatn one of the world’s most diverse nature reserves in terms of unique geology. The north coastline where the Arctic Circle almost touches a shore and birds' nest in the cliffs during summer.
The tour starts with looking at the Godafoss waterfall, some say it’s the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. From there a short drive to the Lake Myvatn area where one can see volcanos resting and waiting patiently until next eruption, fumaroles and steam vents and proof of how geothermally active the area is. After taking a short brake for restrooms and refreshments the tour heads towards the dramatic and captivating landscape of Jokulsa Glacier River formed by glacier floods thousands of years ago after a catastropic volcanic eruption in Vatnajokull Glacier.
After a drive along the scenic Arctic coastline we stop in Húsavík, a quaint fishing village, and have a look at what many consider the most charming harbour area of Iceland, before driving to Akureyri.
