Private Lake Mývatn highlights tour is the perfect way to get a glimpse of Lake Mývatn Highlights. This half day excursion through the magnificent area visit all the major attractions, we even stop at the popular Goðafoss Waterfall. Your private local guide will customize the tour to your interests, whether it is films and TV shows (such as Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Fast & the Furious), or geology, history or mythology.

We begin our day by stopping at Waterfall Goðafoss on our way to Lake Mývatn. The waterfall plays an important role in the Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity. From there we start our amazing journey through areas of extreme contrasts, bird life, flora, geothermal activity, geology and saga. The Lake Mývatn area is by many considered the most beautiful and at the same time the most catastrophic place in Iceland. It has served as a filming location for major Hollywood films such as Fast & Furious 8 and Star Wars and popular TV shows such as Game of Thrones. It is also a delicate eco-system, unique in the world and a constant subject of research. A true gem in the natural history of the world.
