Diamond Circle Classic

Lake Mývatn, Dettifoss, Ásbyrgi & Húsavík

The Diamond Circle Classic tour takes you on an unforgettable journey through Iceland’s most catastrophic area. We travel from Akureyri towards Lake Mývatn and then onwards to the Icelandic Highland and the majestic Jökulsárgljúfur Canyon.

We travel down the canyon alongside a rural route, visiting iconic locations such as Dettifoss Waterfall, Hljóðaklettar Echo Cliffs, Ásbyrgi Canyon, the Arctic Coastline and Húsavík Village. The Diamond Circle offers the best Iceland has to offer, powerful waterfalls, stunning nature, active geothermal areas and vivid bird life. Sit back and enjoy our expert local guidance through this magical, rough terrain.

From June to the middle of August, we stop at Tjörnes Peninsula where we will find puffins nesting in the impressive cliffs by the coastline.

This tour is also available from REYKJAVÍK
