Akureyri - Goğafoss - Lake Mıvatn tour

From Akureyri  we drive to Lake Myvatn one of the most scenic places in Iceland due to the landscape filled with craters and lava formations and amazing bird population. Breathtaking panoramic views make Lake Myvatn one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The first stop on the way is at the waterfall 
Godafoss (The Waterfall of The Gods), one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland.  Its name derives from the year 999. or 1000. when the Lawspeaker Şorgeir Ljósvetningagoği made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion it is said that upon returning from the Alşingi, Şorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall Godafoss, hence the name. 

From Godafoss we head to Dimmuborgir, a large area composed of various volcanic caves and rock formations, reminiscent of an ancient collapsed citadel. Dimmuborgir in Lake Myvatn is one one of a kind lava formation in the world.

Next we visit Jardbodin (the nature bath), which is a place as unique as the Blue Lagoon. There is a chance to go inside and experience the best relaxation in geothermal that you can imagine. 

From Jardbodin we drive to Namaskard. The name derives from the 19th century sulphur recovery located at  an altitude of 410 m. The place is a myriad of hot mud springs in widely different colors.
