Fly: Lake Mývatn Classic

Fly North & Experience a Unique Part of Iceland

Take the early morning flight to from Reykjavík Domestic Airport. Upon arrival at Akureyri Domestic Airport, you’ll be met by a our guide who will join you for a Lake Mývatn Classic tour. We begin our day by stopping at Goðafoss Waterfall on our way to Lake Mývatn. Goðafoss plays an important role in the Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity. We keep on going to the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar before we continue to the mystic Dimmuborgir (Dark Cities) full of lava-pillars and formations that are rich of mystic sagas and tales.  We come to the warm underground river in Grjótagjá rift and head to the geothermal area of Hverir with boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and sulfur pits. Krafla volcano area is our next destination in this tour and we drive past the power station bearing the same name that relies on geothermal steam energy for its operation.  We then come to the explosion crater Víti that was formed in 1724 in the Mývatnseldar eruption and from there we will enjoy the view over Leirhnjúkur volcano.
In our last stop by Mývatn we visit the Mývatn Nature Baths and enjoy relaxing soak in geothermal water in the middle of lava fields with great view over Lake Mývatn. The entry fee is not included but can be added as extra or payed on sight.  At the end of the day we return to Akureyri and catch the afternoon flight to Reykjavík.
