Tour starts with a departure from Akureyri Port, where we drive towards the magnificent Lake Mývatn area.
Our first stop is by Goðafoss Waterfall. Goðafoss plays an essential role in Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity.
Our first stop at the Lake Mývatn area is the picturesque Skútustaðagígar Psuedo Craters, which formed from explosions when the flowing hot lava met with the ice-cold water from the lake. We continue to Dimmuborgir Lava Fields, full of lava pillars and formations rich in mythical sagas and ghoulish trails. We come to the warm underground river in Grjótagjá Rift, where you will stand on the continental rift between Europe and America.
The final stop by Lake Mývatn is the geothermal area of Hverir, with boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles, and sulfur pits. Various photo stops are added to the tour depending on the weather.
The return time is always 1 hour before the ship’s departure.
