Goðafoss Waterfall & Mývatn Nature Baths Tour from Akureyri

The meeting point for our tour is at the Cruise Terminal in Akureyri. 

Goðafoss Waterfall

Our first stop will be at Goðafoss Waterfall. As we approach, you will hear the roar of the water as it cascades down into the river below. The waterfall is situated in a wide river, and the water falls from a height of about 12 meters. 

Lake Mývatn

The next attraction is a lake surrounded by stunning scenery, including the famed pseudo craters of Skútustaðagígar. The Mývatn Lake, like these craters, was formed by a volcanic eruption about 2,300 years ago, and it is renowned for its rich birdlife, including various species of ducks and geese. 

Hverir – Námaskarð Geothermal Area

Then we will visit Hverir, where you can witness the power of geothermal activity up close. You will see steam vents, mud pots, and hot springs constantly bubbling and spitting out boiling water and mud. The landscape here is otherworldly, combining vibrant colors and unique geothermal features.

Mývatn Nature Baths

Finally, we will finish our tour at Myvatn Nature Baths, a series of natural hot springs that are popular for relaxation and rejuvenation. The warm, mineral-rich waters are said to have healing properties, and you will have the opportunity to soak in the warm water while enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

Please note that towels are not included in the ticket price, but you can rent them at the location for 850 ISK each.
