See the highlights of North Iceland on this action-packed day tour that’s perfect for cruise ship passengers. Save hours researching and shortlisting where to visit by having a comprehensive itinerary planned out for you. Sites you’ll see include Godafoss Waterfall, Lake Myvatn, Dimmuborgir Lava Fields, and Grjotagja Rift.

What to expect?

  • Tour starts with a departure from Akureyri Port, from which we drive towards the magnificent Lake Mývatn area.

  • Our first stop is by Goðafoss Waterfall. Goðafoss plays an important role in Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity.

  • Next up the first stop at the Lake Mývatn area, to take in the picturesque Skútustaðagígar Psuedo Craters, formed from explosions when the flowing hot lava met with the ice cold water from the lake.

  • After this we continue to Dimmuborgir Lava Fields, full of lava-pillars and formations that have several connections to mythical sagas and ghoulish trails. We'll eventually 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 tour ends with a return back to port in Akureyri, in time for your ship’s departure.
