Lake Myvatn Sightseeing Tour with Flights from Reykjavik

Join this unique journey where you will experience the vast extremes and incredible beauty of the wild Icelandic nature. Here you will encounter fascinating bird life, geothermal activity, flora, saga, and impressive geological formations. The tour starts with a short flight to Akureyri from Reykjavík Domestic Airport. In Akureyri, you will meet a local guide at the airport, who will take you directly to the Lake Mývatn area. The first stop is at the beautiful waterfall Goðafoss, where law speaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði is said to have cast the old Nordic idols, after he declared Christianity to be the official custom of Iceland, in order to settle religious strife at the time between pagan and Christian groups. You will also see the pseudocraters of Skútustaðagígar, along the lake, before entering the chaotic lava field of Dimmuborgir, the "Dark Fortress," with is incredible lava formations. These natural shapes, created thousands of years ago as the lava cooled following an eruption in the east of the country, form strange pathways, stacks and towers scattered across the lava field. Next you will visit the underground hot springs of Grjótagjá and the geothermal area of Hverir by Mt. Námafjall, where you'll see various sulphur pits, steaming fumaroles, and boiling mud pools. In summertime, you'll proceed to the Krafla volcano site and pass by the power station there. From the volcanic crater Víti in Krafla, formed in the great Mývatnseldar eruption of 1724, you will have a fine view of Leirhnjúkur volcano, which features further mudholes and fumaroles. You will finish up your tour with a two-hour relaxation in the famed Mývatn Nature Baths, where you can marvel at some of the most beautiful scenery in Iceland. The entry fee is not included in the tour price, but can be added as extra. Take this opportunity to see beatuiful Lake Mývatn for yourself! Check availability by choosing a date.

South Coast Tour | Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Vik & Waterfall

Step right up to experience the glaciers, icebergs and waterfalls that give Iceland its stunning reputation, culminating at one of the most popular attractions of all: Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This tour is for anyone who would like to see the landscapes which make Iceland one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world. You’ll be picked up at your designated pickup location in Reykjavík and glide down the south coast, past sun-sparkled fields of grass, fields of black lava cooled and hardened after eruptions long ago, sheep and horses playing with their young in the glens, and cliffs and mountains rising high over the land. The lunch break will be held at a local restaurant where you can discover Icelandic dishes! Once you have stretched your legs, you’ll continue on the coast past Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland. Finally, you’ll reach one of the crowning glories of Iceland, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The ancient ice in the lake breaks off from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, making its way through the lagoon before being released into the sea. You’ll have plenty of time to explore here, watching out for gulls and seals that play in the lagoon and admiring the blue colour of the icebergs. You can also take a walk on nearby Diamond Beach with its black sand, another hint towards Iceland's volcanic past. Chunks of ice wash on shore here and sparkle in the sun like diamonds on a bed of velvet, which is what inspired the name. You’ll make your way back to the West and stop in Vík, a small town on the coast and an important stop on the Ring Road. You’ll experience the cute cafés and souvenir shops during this dinner break. On the way back, you’ll be passing one of Iceland’s most famous waterfall: Seljalandsfoss. An additional secret stop will be planned in this itinerary! So hurry now and grab a seat on this fantastic bus tour to see the true natural jewels of Iceland’s south coast. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

Snaefellsnes Peninsula Day Tour | Small Group Experience

Spend the day enjoying the diverse and beautiful attractions of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with this great sightseeing tour. Visit small fishing villages tucked in at the base of spectacular fjords and mountains, gold and black sand beaches, and dramatic coastal cliffs adorned by bird colonies in summer, all the while the majestic Snæfellsjökull glacier watches over you. Those looking to experience the best of Iceland should grab this chance now. The tour starts in the morning when you will be picked up in Reykjavík and whisked away, past Mt. Esja, to west Iceland. After a brief stop in the Viking town of Borgarnes, you will make your way to the 90 km stretch of land known as the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.  Your tour guide will take the weather and daylight into account when deciding which of the many attractions found on Snæfellsnes you will visit first. The peninsula is known as ‘Iceland in miniature’ as you can see a bit of everything there; picturesque villages, imposing coastlines, black beaches, majestic mountains, silvery waterfalls, and, of course, a glacier that covers a volcano.  You will visit the hamlet of Arnarstapi where a short walk will take you to spectacular cliffs made of basalt columns. In the summer, the cliffs are teeming with birds so keep an eye peeled for gulls, kittiwakes, fulmars and the cranky Arctic tern.  At Djúpalónssandur black pebble beach, you will have to walk through a maze of lava stacks before reaching the shore. Scattered on the beach’s smooth, black rocks are the remains of a fishing trawler that perished in the waters some 50 years ago.  On the north side of the peninsula, you will visit another beach, Skarðsvík, which sits on the edge of a dark lava field. This beach is unlike other Icelandic beaches as the sand here is yellow or gold and not pitch-black. No tour of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is complete without a stop at Iceland’s most photographed mountain, Kirkjufell. Fans of the HBO series, Game of Thrones, might recognise this impressive feature as “the mountain shaped like an arrowhead”. Explore the wonders of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with this immersive day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

2 in 1 Bundle Discount Winter Tours | Golden Circle, Ice Cave & Snaefellsnes

Visit many of Iceland’s highlights over four days and save money while doing so with this discounted tour bundle. Those who want to mix their winter-time in Iceland with both sightseeing and adventure, while cutting on costs, should not miss this opportunity. This combo consists of two tours, which will bring you to many famous sites and all three of Iceland’s National Parks. On the 3-day south coast tour, you will get to explore the Golden Circle, South Coast and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon; you also get to embark on a glacier hike and an ice caving adventure. On the day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you will see majestic waterfalls, stretches of dark lava fields and a mighty glacier.  During the 3-day tour to the south coast, you will be staying in country hotels along the trip for 2 nights, which are included in the price. This will cut down on driving time and put you right in the middle of the sites. You will also be transported around in comfortable minibuses throughout both tours, led by experienced guides, making the experience as personal and enjoyable as possible. Iceland during winter is one of its most beautiful times. Many of the sites you will visit will be draped in snow and sparkling with frost; the glaciers will be clad in fresh, electric blue ice; and the ice caves are open. These caves only occur in Iceland’s coldest months, and only then under certain conditions, so the chance to explore one is something very few have. Of course, winter is also the season of the Northern Lights. There will be many hours of darkness each day, and whenever there is no cloud cover, you have a chance of seeing them. This is only amplified when you are staying out in the country, where there is little light pollution. Make the most of your time in Iceland throughout winter, without breaking the bank.

Snowcat Skiing on Mulakolla Mountain

Strap on your ski boots and embark on an exhilarating cat skiing tour on Múlakolla Mountain. If you are a backcountry skier or snowboarder, looking to reach the deep powder areas of North Iceland, this snowcat adventure is perfect for you. Your excursion begins as you meet up with your local guide in the town of Ólafsfjörður, nesting at the mouth of the North Iceland fjord Eyjafjörður. Then, you climb in the snowcat and begin your drive to the top of the mountain Múlakolla, ploughing through the deep snow to reach areas not ordinarily accessible with anything but a helicopter. During your tour, expect to gain a stunning view of Ólafsfjörður, Eyjafjörður and Tröllaskagi, also known as the Troll Peninsula, a dramatic mountain range and one of the pearls of North Iceland. On clear days looking out to sea, you can also get a clear view of the islands Hrísey and Grímsey, where they sit in the Atlantic Ocean at the very edge of the Arctic Circle. The peak of Múlakolla Mountain reaches 984 metres (3,228 feet), making the views from the top vast and fantastical. This land was carved via glacial movements, creating dramatic valleys, trickling rivers and the tallest mountains in the country outside the central Highlands. Going skiing or snowboarding on this stunning mountain range is a treat not experienced by many. You bring your own gear and get help with loading it in your transportation, the Pisten Bully Park 300 Snowcat, a fast and smooth rider that seats 28 people just fine along with their winter sports gear. If you didn't bring your gear, you can rent it in the skiing area of the neighbouring town Siglufjörður. Of course, there is no need to sit in the heated comforts of your snowcat for the trip down. Instead, you can fly down the slopes on your ski or board, kicking up the snow as you go. If you participate in neither of these winter sports, you can still come along on this tour, enjoy the sweeping mountain views and catch the ride downhill afterwards. Don’t hesitate, book your snowcat adventure now and go skiing in the mountains of North Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Join this two-day tour of the stunning South Coast of Iceland to discover glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and cascading waterfalls, as well as the unique and naturally formed Blue Ice Cave. This excursion is for anyone looking to experience the vast wonders of Iceland in only two days.  Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City on the morning of your first day, after which you will pay a visit to two of the country’s most famous and remarkable waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then, you will be treated to nearby waterfalls of equal beauty; Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss, which are hidden gems of the area that many people miss out on experiencing. The black pebble beach Reynisfjara and its stunning sea stacks Reynisdrangar will complete this exciting first day of the tour. After a good night’s rest, your adventure continues, as you visit the otherworldly nature reserve Skaftafell and take a walk along the Diamond Beach. The beach consists of black velvet sands dotted with glistening icebergs that are making their way from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean.  The glacier lagoon counts as one of Iceland’s primary attractions, where you can gaze at the huge chunks of ice floating in the azure waters—you might even spot the resident seals that are often curious enough to greet visitors.  Then it’s time for the highlight of the tour; to visit a natural ice cave within Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland’s largest ice cap. To visit one of these caves is a rarity and a privilege, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and fill with meltwater each spring. Since this is the winter season, there is a good chance the Northern Lights might grace you with their presence each night of your adventure.  This tour is in high demand and of limited availability. Book now if you want to experience the nature of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

8 Day Summer Package | The Classic South, the Far-flung Westfjords and the Untouched Highlands

See the very best that Iceland has to offer with this fantastic eight-day summer package where you rediscover the picturesque South Coast and hike up a glacier before exploring some of the country’s lesser-known regions, including the majestic Westfjords and the stunning Central Highlands. This package is particularly suited towards returning visitors to Iceland, hence the focus on Iceland’s wild and isolated areas. However, it is infused with adventure as you'll get to participate in both a glacier hike and a super jeep tour. Those routinely awe-inspired by nature will also find this package more than satisfying, as will amateur and professional photographers alike. By opting for a multi-day tour package such as this, you open up a realm of benefits otherwise unavailable to your average traveller in Iceland.

Lake Myvatn Sightseeing Tour with Flights from Reykjavik

Join this unique journey where you will experience the vast extremes and incredible beauty of the wild Icelandic nature. Here you will encounter fascinating bird life, geothermal activity, flora, saga, and impressive geological formations. The tour starts with a short flight to Akureyri from Reykjavík Domestic Airport. In Akureyri, you will meet a local guide at the airport, who will take you directly to the Lake Mývatn area.

You will also see the pseudocraters of Skútustaðagígar, along the lake, before entering the chaotic lava field of Dimmuborgir, the "Dark Fortress," with is incredible lava formations. These natural shapes, created thousands of years ago as the lava cooled following an eruption in the east of the country, form strange pathways, stacks and towers scattered across the lava field. Next you will visit the underground hot springs of Grjótagjá and the geothermal area of Hverir by Mt. Námafjall, where you'll see various sulphur pits, steaming fumaroles, and boiling mud pools. In summertime, you'll proceed to the Krafla volcano site and pass by the power station there. From the volcanic crater Víti in Krafla, formed in the great Mývatnseldar eruption of 1724, you will have a fine view of Leirhnjúkur volcano, which features further mudholes and fumaroles. You will finish up your tour with a two-hour relaxation in the famed Mývatn Nature Baths, where you can marvel at some of the most beautiful scenery in Iceland.

This tour is for anyone who would like to see the landscapes which make Iceland one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world. You’ll be picked up at your designated pickup location in Reykjavík and glide down the south coast, past sun-sparkled fields of grass, fields of black lava cooled and hardened after eruptions long ago, sheep and horses playing with their young in the glens, and cliffs and mountains rising high over the land.

Once you have stretched your legs, you’ll continue on the coast past Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland. Finally, you’ll reach one of the crowning glories of Iceland, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

You can also take a walk on nearby Diamond Beach with its black sand, another hint towards Iceland's volcanic past. Chunks of ice wash on shore here and sparkle in the sun like diamonds on a bed of velvet, which is what inspired the name. You’ll make your way back to the West and stop in Vík, a small town on the coast and an important stop on the Ring Road. You’ll experience the cute cafés and souvenir shops during this dinner break. On the way back, you’ll be passing one of Iceland’s most famous waterfall: Seljalandsfoss. An additional secret stop will be planned in this itinerary!

Snaefellsnes Peninsula Day Tour | Small Group Experience

Spend the day enjoying the diverse and beautiful attractions of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with this great sightseeing tour. Visit small fishing villages tucked in at the base of spectacular fjords and mountains, gold and black sand beaches, and dramatic coastal cliffs adorned by bird colonies in summer, all the while the majestic Snæfellsjökull glacier watches over you. Those looking to experience the best of Iceland should grab this chance now. The tour starts in the morning when you will be picked up in Reykjavík and whisked away, past Mt. Esja, to west Iceland. After a brief stop in the Viking town of Borgarnes, you will make your way to the 90 km stretch of land known as the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.  Your tour guide will take the weather and daylight into account when deciding which of the many attractions found on Snæfellsnes you will visit first. The peninsula is known as ‘Iceland in miniature’ as you can see a bit of everything there; picturesque villages, imposing coastlines, black beaches, majestic mountains, silvery waterfalls, and, of course, a glacier that covers a volcano.  You will visit the hamlet of Arnarstapi where a short walk will take you to spectacular cliffs made of basalt columns. In the summer, the cliffs are teeming with birds so keep an eye peeled for gulls, kittiwakes, fulmars and the cranky Arctic tern.  At Djúpalónssandur black pebble beach, you will have to walk through a maze of lava stacks before reaching the shore. Scattered on the beach’s smooth, black rocks are the remains of a fishing trawler that perished in the waters some 50 years ago.  On the north side of the peninsula, you will visit another beach, Skarðsvík, which sits on the edge of a dark lava field. This beach is unlike other Icelandic beaches as the sand here is yellow or gold and not pitch-black. No tour of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is complete without a stop at Iceland’s most photographed mountain, Kirkjufell. Fans of the HBO series, Game of Thrones, might recognise this impressive feature as “the mountain shaped like an arrowhead”. Explore the wonders of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula with this immersive day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

2 in 1 Bundle Discount Winter Tours | Golden Circle, Ice Cave & Snaefellsnes

Visit many of Iceland’s highlights over four days and save money while doing so with this discounted tour bundle. Those who want to mix their winter-time in Iceland with both sightseeing and adventure, while cutting on costs, should not miss this opportunity. This combo consists of two tours, which will bring you to many famous sites and all three of Iceland’s National Parks. On the 3-day south coast tour, you will get to explore the Golden Circle, South Coast and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon; you also get to embark on a glacier hike and an ice caving adventure. On the day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you will see majestic waterfalls, stretches of dark lava fields and a mighty glacier.  During the 3-day tour to the south coast, you will be staying in country hotels along the trip for 2 nights, which are included in the price. This will cut down on driving time and put you right in the middle of the sites. You will also be transported around in comfortable minibuses throughout both tours, led by experienced guides, making the experience as personal and enjoyable as possible. Iceland during winter is one of its most beautiful times. Many of the sites you will visit will be draped in snow and sparkling with frost; the glaciers will be clad in fresh, electric blue ice; and the ice caves are open. These caves only occur in Iceland’s coldest months, and only then under certain conditions, so the chance to explore one is something very few have. Of course, winter is also the season of the Northern Lights. There will be many hours of darkness each day, and whenever there is no cloud cover, you have a chance of seeing them. This is only amplified when you are staying out in the country, where there is little light pollution. Make the most of your time in Iceland throughout winter, without breaking the bank.

Snowcat Skiing on Mulakolla Mountain

Strap on your ski boots and embark on an exhilarating cat skiing tour on Múlakolla Mountain. If you are a backcountry skier or snowboarder, looking to reach the deep powder areas of North Iceland, this snowcat adventure is perfect for you. Your excursion begins as you meet up with your local guide in the town of Ólafsfjörður, nesting at the mouth of the North Iceland fjord Eyjafjörður. Then, you climb in the snowcat and begin your drive to the top of the mountain Múlakolla, ploughing through the deep snow to reach areas not ordinarily accessible with anything but a helicopter. During your tour, expect to gain a stunning view of Ólafsfjörður, Eyjafjörður and Tröllaskagi, also known as the Troll Peninsula, a dramatic mountain range and one of the pearls of North Iceland. On clear days looking out to sea, you can also get a clear view of the islands Hrísey and Grímsey, where they sit in the Atlantic Ocean at the very edge of the Arctic Circle. The peak of Múlakolla Mountain reaches 984 metres (3,228 feet), making the views from the top vast and fantastical. This land was carved via glacial movements, creating dramatic valleys, trickling rivers and the tallest mountains in the country outside the central Highlands. Going skiing or snowboarding on this stunning mountain range is a treat not experienced by many. You bring your own gear and get help with loading it in your transportation, the Pisten Bully Park 300 Snowcat, a fast and smooth rider that seats 28 people just fine along with their winter sports gear. If you didn't bring your gear, you can rent it in the skiing area of the neighbouring town Siglufjörður. Of course, there is no need to sit in the heated comforts of your snowcat for the trip down. Instead, you can fly down the slopes on your ski or board, kicking up the snow as you go. If you participate in neither of these winter sports, you can still come along on this tour, enjoy the sweeping mountain views and catch the ride downhill afterwards. Don’t hesitate, book your snowcat adventure now and go skiing in the mountains of North Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

2 Day South Coast Tour | Blue Ice Cave, Jokulsarlon, Black Beach & Waterfalls

Join this two-day tour of the stunning South Coast of Iceland to discover glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and cascading waterfalls, as well as the unique and naturally formed Blue Ice Cave. This excursion is for anyone looking to experience the vast wonders of Iceland in only two days.  Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City on the morning of your first day, after which you will pay a visit to two of the country’s most famous and remarkable waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then, you will be treated to nearby waterfalls of equal beauty; Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss, which are hidden gems of the area that many people miss out on experiencing. The black pebble beach Reynisfjara and its stunning sea stacks Reynisdrangar will complete this exciting first day of the tour. After a good night’s rest, your adventure continues, as you visit the otherworldly nature reserve Skaftafell and take a walk along the Diamond Beach. The beach consists of black velvet sands dotted with glistening icebergs that are making their way from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean.  The glacier lagoon counts as one of Iceland’s primary attractions, where you can gaze at the huge chunks of ice floating in the azure waters—you might even spot the resident seals that are often curious enough to greet visitors.  Then it’s time for the highlight of the tour; to visit a natural ice cave within Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland’s largest ice cap. To visit one of these caves is a rarity and a privilege, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and fill with meltwater each spring. Since this is the winter season, there is a good chance the Northern Lights might grace you with their presence each night of your adventure.  This tour is in high demand and of limited availability. Book now if you want to experience the nature of Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
