If you are looking for a scenic and memorable excursion in Iceland including Geothermal bathing, you might want to consider a 5,5 - 6 hours tour from the town of Akureyri to the majestic Godafoss Waterfall. This tour will take you through the beautiful countryside of northern Iceland, where you will see stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife. But you will also learn about the history and culture of Iceland from your knowledgeable guide.

The tour starts in Akureyri, the second largest urban area in Iceland and the capital of the north. You will board a bus that will take you to the Godafoss waterfall (Goðafoss in Icelandic), one of the most spectacular and historic waterfalls in Iceland. The name means the "waterfall of the gods". The waterfall is about 12 meters high (36 feet) and 30 meters wide (90 feet), and it forms a horseshoe shape that creates a stunning spectacle of water and mist. You will have about 45 minutes to explore the waterfall, take photos of this natural wonder and, if you like, grab a coffee at the Godafoss Coffee Shop.

After admiring the waterfall, you will board the bus again and head back to Akureyri but not exactly the same way. You will drive through the beautiful Fnjoskadalur Valley, up to the mountains and down to the Eyjafordur Bay with astonishing view. The Eyjafjordur Bay is the longest in Iceland, and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The bus will stop at the Akureyri Viewpoint so you can enjoy the view over the town of Akureyri, the Bay and the mountains, and take pictures! 

Now it time to discover one of the gems of Akureyri. Ready for an adventure? A geothermal spa: The Forest lagoon. There are geothermal pools, a sauna, a relaxing lounge and an in-water pool bar. But it's not only about bathing in warm waters; it's a rendezvous with nature! The Forest lagoon is surrounded by greenery and has a breathtaking views of the Eyjafjordur Bay. Enjoy the warm water, the song of the birds and the view! And you are not in a hurry! You have 2 hours to enjoy the spa and after that one hour to relax and have a lunch in the on-site restaurant. A delicious soup of the day, with bred, butter and pure Icelandic tap water is included. After your visit a shuttle-bus will bring you back to Akureyri (5-10 minutes drive).
