Map for Lake Myvatn tour

A day of spectacular sights around Lake Mývatn in the North of Iceland comprises this 12-hour day tour departing from Reykjavik on Air Iceland. The Lake Mývatn district is world-famous for exceptionally versatile nature and the Mývatn Nature Baths, so be sure to take along your bathing suit for this optional activity.


Akureyri – Godafoss
We travel from Akureyri to the beautiful twin waterfall Godafoss, named for the pagan idols thrown into it a thousand years ago. From Gođafoss the tour continues through the valley of Reykjadalur to Skútustađir in the Lake Mývatn district. There we explore the regular shaped pseudo craters formed in a volcanic eruption approximately 2300 years ago.

Next the tour continues to Dimmuborgir (The Black Castles), a lava labyrinth formed around 2300 years ago when a partly cooled lava lake drained out and left magnificent basaltic pillars and sculptures. After a short walk in Dimmuborgir and a lunch break (lunch not included).

The tour will continue through the lava field to Grjótagjá, a popular underground bathing cave among the locals before the Krafla Fires (1975-1984) when the water became too hot to bathe in.

Krafla & Víti
After a short stop by Grjótagjá we drive east over the Námaskarđ mountain pass to the Krafla caldera. Along the way we pass a 60- MW geothermal power station that partly supplies the town of Akureyri with electricity. We visit the explosion crater of Víti (Hell) but its formation marked the beginning of the great Mývatn Fires in 1724. From Víti there is a good view to the geothermal zone of Leirhnjúkur and the lava field formed in the Krafla Fires.

Hverarönd (Námaskarđ)
Next we explore the fumarole fields of Hverarönd (Námaskarđ) where ground water is heated by an underground magma intrusion. Sulphur deposits are brought to the surface and the area is characterized by a strong smell of sulphur.

Mývatn Nature Baths
We will stop at Mývatn Nature Bath, where you will have the option to enjoy a swim in the the milky - white geothermal water. (not included). The stop is approx. 80-90 minutes.
