Lake Mývatn, Dettifoss, Ásbyrgi & Húsavík

The Magical Nature and Diversity of the North

The Diamond Circle Classic tour takes you on an unforgettable journey through Iceland’s most catastrophic and diverse area, rich in volcanic and geothermal features. The stunning beauty of Lake Mývatn has been the main attraction in the north for decades and east of the lake we enter the highlands arriving to Jökulsá Glacier River in Vatnajökull National Park. The breathtaking landscape of Jökulsá is formed by massive glacier floods from Vatnajökull, Iceland’s biggest glacier.

The canyons and rock formations visited in the Diamond Circle tour are impressive on their own but the iconic Dettifoss waterfall, the most powerful waterfall in Europe, is nothing short of majestic. The tour takes us north to the Arctic Coastline where we explore the canyon formation Ásbyrgi and drive along the coastline to the beautiful fishing village of Húsavík.

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 can observe puffins nesting in the impressive cliffs by the coastline.
