About the tour

From Akureyri we drive to Lake Mývatn 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 Mývatn one of the most beautiful places in the world. 

The first stop on the way is at the waterfall Goðafoss (The Waterfall of The Gods), one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Its name derives from the year 1000 when the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði made Christianity the official religion of Iceland.  

From Goðafoss we head to Dimmuborgir, a large area composed of various volcanic caves and rock formations, reminiscent of an ancient collapsed citadel.  

From Dimmuborgir we drive to Námaskarð. 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.

Next stop is Jarðböðin (the nature bath), which is a place as unique as the Blue Lagoon. There you can have a relaxed and exquisite experience with the view over the Lake Mývatn and the surrounding lava formation.
