Lake Myvatn is one of the most scenic places in Iceland mostly because of the magical landscape created by the geothermal powers which created the island. Be prepared to enjoy a magical landscape filled with alluring craters and striking lava formations.

When we arrive at the Lake Myvatn area, we stop at Skutustadir, known for its symmetrically formed pseudo craters, which are among the best known in the world. From Skutustadir there is a also good view of Lake Myvatn and the mountains around the lake.

Next stop is at Dimmuborgir Lavafields, with strange lava formations, a surrealistic place.

Then we head to the geothermal area of Hverir at Namaskard, one of the most spectacular places in the country, with it's solfataras (boiling sulphur mudpits) and widely different colors.

A short break to have lunch before the next destination: the Waterfall Godafoss, famed not only for its beauty, but also as the scene of historical events from the saga times. It is one of the most spectacular and historic waterfalls in Iceland. The name means the "waterfall of the gods". Is 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.

Pick-up is at the harbour 1 hour after the arrival of the ship, and departure 30 minutes later. When you have booked the tour, please read the information regarding the pick-up time and place carefully.
