Lake Myvatn Sightseeing & Hot Springs Tour from Akureyri

Hop on this tour for a unique journey across the diverse landscape of Iceland. This tour is for those who love to explore Iceland’s volcanic marvels and any animal lovers who visits our shores! You'll be picked up at your accommodation in Akureyri and whizz across the land all the way to Lake Mývatn, stopping at various unforgettable points throughout the tour. Goðafoss is your first stop, a waterfall named “The Gods’ Waterfall.” It is said that in the year 1000 AD, law-speaker Þorgeir declared Christianity to be the law of the land because he believed that religious differences between the Christians and the pagans could tear the country apart. Thus united, Þorgeir returned home after the parliament meeting. On the way, he stopped at this fall and threw figurines of the Norse gods into the water, casting off his own pagan beliefs in the process. Next, you will visit Skútustaðagígar pseudo craters on the south shore of Lake Mývatn, formed when scorching lava flowed over the entire area, met up with the cool lake water, and exploded in the rapidly cooling temperatures. You'll continue on to Dimmuborgir, the “dark cities,” where lava formations and pillars are plenty and tell mysterious tales and sagas. Then, you go to the underground hot springs of Grjótagjá and the Námafjall geothermal area, where you'll see various sulphur pits, steaming fumaroles, and boiling mud pools. In the summertime, you’ll be able to proceed to the Krafla volcano site and pass by the geothermal steam energy plant, a route that is usually closed due to snow in the winter. For the next stop, you will get to enjoy the panoramic view of the Leirhnjúkur volcano, the Víti explosion crater that was formed during the Myvatnseldar eruption in 1724. And to cap off your Mývatn adventure, you'll relax in a two-hour nature bath in a geothermal pool surrounded by vast lava fields, while enjoying the view of the great lake Mývatn, a nature preserve for the thousands of birds winging through the skies overhead. The entry fee is not included in the tour price but is available as an extra. Don't miss out on this opportunity to explore the sensational north! Check availability by choosing a date.

Visit a Dog Sled Kennel on an Icelandic Farm | Lake Myvatn Area

Meet the incredible Siberian Huskies who pull sleighs through the Icelandic snowscapes. This tour is a must for animal lovers, as it is simply an opportunity to meet and play with some of the friendliest animals in the country.

While you play with the animals, you will learn about how dog-sledding works, and how the Siberian Husky came to be an ideal breed for it.

Huskies have a high amount of strength, energy, and resilience, resistance to cold conditions, and a highly ingrained pack mentality, making them perfect for the job. Because of these traits, the dogs enjoy being outside, and are free to roam around the farm whenever the weather outside allows; they can handle almost any conditions but are taken into the kennels for their comfort during storms. Don't miss this opportunity of enjoying the company of Siberian Huskies, and learn all about their history and training. Check availability by choosing a date.

Askja Caldera & Viti Crater | East Highlands Day Tour

Walk in the footsteps of the first men on the moon on the Askja Lunar tour. Leaving from Lake Mývatn, this incredible trip takes you into the desolate, rugged Highlands of Iceland, and incorporates visits to volcanoes, craters, a stunning nature reserve and a geothermally heated lake that you are invited to bask in. You will be picked up at Reykjahlíð in the Lake Mývatn area in the morning, in a four-wheel-drive bus. Once your group is aboard, you will begin your journey into the Highlands. This wilderness is unimaginably beautiful, and a sight very few are lucky enough to be able to see. It is advised to keep your camera in hand for the duration of your drive, for there will be many striking features en route that you will want to photograph. On your way to Askja, you will stop in the stretches of lava and black sands where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin prepared for the 1960s moon landing. The appeal of this region to NASA is instantly apparent; its bleak desolation gives you the feeling of walking on a different planet. The area, however, is not entirely lifeless; you will stop at the nature reserve Herðubreiðarlindir, which is an oasis of plants and birdlife maintained by freshwater springs through the old lava. This beautiful reserve has the incredible backdrop of the subglacial volcano Herðubreið, nicknamed the Queen of Iceland’s Mountains. At 1682 metres (5354 ft) tall, it is Iceland’s fifth tallest peak; covered in the glistening ice of Vatnajökull glacier. Following your time at the nature reserve, you will head over to the massive Askja Volcano. When it erupted in 1875, the amount of poisonous ash released into the air prompted a large exodus from the country. The force of this eruption blasted a new caldera inside the old one, and after the cooling period, this new basin filled with water. Now, you can see a stunning lake within the crater, 11 km squared and 220 metres (722 ft) deep.  You will walk right up to its rim, then to another nearby crater lake, called Víti, which translates to ‘hell’, but bathing in its milky blue geothermally heated waters is heaven. Once you are fully recharged from your refreshing bath, you will head back to the bus to return to Lake Mývatn, aiming to be back ten or eleven hours after departing. The incredible, desolate beauty of this tour promises to stay with you for life; you can return knowing you have seen landscapes and features most visitors to Iceland never have the chance to witness. So don’t hesitate any longer; immerse yourself in the beauty of the Highlands, and visit the mighty Askja Volcano. Check availability by choosing a date.

You'll be picked up at your accommodation in Akureyri and whizz across the land all the way to Lake Mývatn, stopping at various unforgettable points throughout the tour. Goðafoss is your first stop, a waterfall named “The Gods’ Waterfall.” It is said that in the year 1000 AD, law-speaker Þorgeir declared Christianity to be the law of the land because he believed that religious differences between the Christians and the pagans could tear the country apart. Thus united, Þorgeir returned home after the parliament meeting. On the way, he stopped at this fall and threw figurines of the Norse gods into the water, casting off his own pagan beliefs in the process. Next, you will visit Skútustaðagígar pseudo craters on the south shore of Lake Mývatn, formed when scorching lava flowed over the entire area, met up with the cool lake water, and exploded in the rapidly cooling temperatures.

Then, you go to the underground hot springs of Grjótagjá and the Námafjall geothermal area, where you'll see various sulphur pits, steaming fumaroles, and boiling mud pools. In the summertime, you’ll be able to proceed to the Krafla volcano site and pass by the geothermal steam energy plant, a route that is usually closed due to snow in the winter.

One of Hverfell’s most distinct features is its impressive crater with steep and rocky edges, only accessible by two paths as to protect the unique landscape of the mouth. Then, get ready to pass through the crater row Lúdentaborgir, but these lunar landscapes were utilised as a training base for astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission during the 1960s space race. After driving through the moon-like surface, you’ll reach the roots of Mt. Hvannfell and continue your excursion on foot. You will then be facing an approximately 30-minute hike across a spectacular lava field before reaching the mouth of Lofthellir Cave. Then, prepare to get down on all fours and enter through the cave’s narrow mouth to find a whole new world waiting for you inside. The 3,500-year-old lava cave stretches 370 metres underneath the ground and the natural ice sculptures within are renowned for being the most impressive in all of Iceland. The cave is dark and full of wonders, but you will be well equipped with a helmet, headlight and crampons provided by your guide. As you explore the cave’s mystic underworld, get ready to behold glistening rock formations and droplets of lava stone amongst the jagged ice needles that are scattered across the cave. If you bring your camera, remember to turn on the flash to capture a netherworld unlike any other. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to explore an authentic lava cave in North Iceland.
