Be drawn to the water wonders of Myvatn on a sightseeing journey navigating a series of geological attractions on your way to one of Iceland's most magnificent lakes. Explore the Grjótagjá area and get immersed in the deep rock rift while enjoying the mind-blowing Dimmuborgir lava formations. You also embark on a bird-watching expedition in a region that boasts of more than 180 bird species.

What to expect?

  • Starting from Akureyri, we will make a stop by the waterfall Goðafoss on our way to Mývatn area.

  • On arrival in the area, the passenger inevitably focuses first on the lovely Laxá river to the left of the highway as the bus approaches the clusters of pseudo craters at Skútustaðir, where a refreshing walk reveals craters. These almost look like real craters but they have never spewed forth anything, since they were created just a few thousand years ago by sizzling hot lava flows into the lake, followed by steam explosions.

  • From there the tour leads to the unique Dimmuborgir lava formations, including a brief visit to Grjótagjá, ensconced deep in the rocky rift formed by the two separating tectonic plates. After that, we head to Námafjall with its boiling and bubbling "solfatara" or sulfur pits. Then, head to Sigurgeir´s Bird Museum that proudly exhibits 180 different bird species.

  • A visit to the Nature Baths is also an exhilarating and unforgettable experience that you will not want to miss (ticket not included). There are only a few places mentioned here, but the tour includes also a circle around the lake (Mývatn), so there is a lot to enjoy during this day and most often too soon time to head back and end the tour.

What is included?

  • A private tour
  • Fully guided tour
  • Transportation and visit for Sigurgeir’s Bird Centre.
