Iceland is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and the Mývatn region is situated in its zone of volcanic and geothermal activity. Bird watching in this area thus focuses not only on observing a variety of bird species, learning about biology, and experiencing local culture, but it also shows a delightful variety of scenery, landscapes and nature.
The Mývatn bird watching day tour is designed for people with various levels of interest in bird life. Weather permitting, photographic opportunities are abundant, both in terms of bird life and geology.
