Private Askja Caldera Tour from Akureyri is an adventure like no other in Iceland. Your escape to the isolated mountains of Iceland, your retreat in a busy and noisy world. Entering the Highlands of Iceland brings a feeling like no other, hard to fathom with words. You need to be here…
This is the perfect tour to experience the barren interior of Iceland and the lunar-like landscape of the Highlands. This is the location where NASA trained the Apollo Astronauts before the first lunar landing. Iconic landmarks such as Herðubreiðalindir Oasis, Drekagil Gully and Holuhraun Lava Field will also be visited. We catch a glimpse of where the Icelandic outlaws lived in the middle ages when they’d been banished. We might also be able to spot trolls, ghosts and other creatures that are said to live in the area and have haunted travelers for centuries.
The tour starts and ends with a transport from Akureyri, and on the route between Lake Mývatn and Akureyri we stop and visit legendary Goðafoss Waterfall.
This tour is also available from Lake Mývatn
