Here we combine two very popular attractions in one. You fly to Akureyri early in the morning on 45 minute domestic flight. Upon arrival we pick you up at the Airport and get on our way to the Lake Mývatn Area, an amazing area of extreme contrasts, bird life, flora, geothermal activity and saga. Our first stop is at Goðafoss Waterfall on our way to Lake Mývatn. Goðafoss is a picturesque waterfall in Skjálfandafljót River. The first stop by Lake Mývatn is at the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar. From there we visit all the highlights of the area, such as Hverir Mud Pools, Grjótagjá Rift, Dimmuborgir Lava Fields and many more. Our last stop by Lake Mývatn before our return to Akureyri is the Mývatn Nature Baths, where we enjoy a relaxing time in completely natural pool of geothermal water based in the middle of lava fields with great view over the area.
When back in Akureyri we will drop you off at the Akureyri Harbor where you will embark on a whale watching sail in Eyjafjörður Fjord. You sail on a specially designed Whale Watching Ship in Eyjarfjörður Fjord, Iceland’s deepest fjord, and home of Humpback Whales, Dolphins and Blue Whales. After a three hour tour you come back to Akureyri around 8pm. Either in time for a dinner or a flight back to Reykjavík.
This is a perfect tour as a day tour from Reykjavík, if you have limited time to visit the magnificent area.
