Roam and relax in this all-encompassing exploration of Icelandic geography that allows you to bathe in geothermal waters and explore stunning nature.

What to expect?

Lake Mývatn and the surroundings is a must see while exploring the north! We start from the information center at Lake Mývatn, the lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic land-forms, including lava pillars and rootless vents. We stop in Skútustaðagígar (pseudo craters) on the way to the unique lava formations of Dimmuborgir which are among the most popular tourist attractions in the Mývatn area.

We also go to Grjótagjá Rift, an old natural bathing spot filled with naturally heated water coming out of a rift. We will stop at Selfoss waterfall and Dettifoss, one of the most powerful waterfall in Europe. You get the chance to take a bathe in the geothermal water.

After the stop in the Nature baths we drive you back to Information center in Mývatn.
