Description

This day tour takes you to some of the most beautiful and scenic locations in the north of Iceland. On this day trip designed especially for cruise ship passengers docking in Akureyri you will experience the vast landscapes, historical volcanic areas, beautiful waterfalls and more.

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.

Next stop Jarðböðin (the Mývatn nature baths), which is a place just as unique as the Blue Lagoon.

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