The tour starts by driving along the coast of Iceland’s longest fjord, Eyjarfjordur, from where you get an excellent view of Akureyri and its surrounding mountains. The first stop is by Godafoss falls - one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland; the water of the river Skjalfandafljot falls from a height of 12 m over a width of 30 m. From there we drive directly to the Lake Myvatn area, stopping by the unique craters at Skutustadir before having lunch. After lunch we visit the Dimmuborgir lava labyrinth, a paradise of towering lava castles, natural arches and countless unexplored grottos then continue to the gurgling purple and yellow sulphur cauldrons at the high temperature thermal field of Namaskard, which are so hot that they actually boil. We head back to Akureyri with short city sightseeing en route.
The tour starts at 9:00, duration 6 hours
