Tour Description

Take the early morning flight from Reykjavík Domestic Airport to Akureyri where you’ll be met by our guide for a Lake Mývatn tour. Please arrive at the Reykjavík Airport 45 minutes before departure.

Pickup is from 8:45-9:00 am at Akureyri Domestic Airport, where we start our tour to Lake Mývatn.

We drive east from Akureyri, cross Eyjafjörður fjord and enjoy the view of the town, the ocean and the mountains surrounding the fjord. After only a half hour drive we arrive at the picturesque Goðafoss Waterfall where we stop before we travel for another half hour to the Lake Mývatn area.

We explore the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar where we enjoy the great panoramic view of the area. For the next hours we visit local nature highlights, such as Hverir Mud Pools, Mt. Námafjall, Dimmuborgir Lava Fields and Grjótagjá, the rift between the Eurasian & American Continents.

Before returning back to Akureyri for your flight to Reykjavík we visit the Mývatn Nature Baths, located in the middle of lava fields where you can soak in a relaxing geothermal lagoon. The entry fee is not included in the tour price, but can be added upon booking the tour or paid on site. We stop for at least 1 hour at the Nature Baths.
