Our first stop will be at Goðafoss Waterfall, one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. As we approach, you will hear the roar of the water as it cascades down into the river below. The waterfall is situated in a wide river, and the water falls from a height of about 12 meters. Legend has it that in the year 1000 AD, Iceland's Lawspeaker, Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði, threw his pagan idols into the waterfall after converting to Christianity, hence the name "waterfall of the gods".
The next attraction on our agenda is the wonderours and strange beauty of Lake Mývatn. The lake that is surrounded by stunning scenery, including the famed pseudo craters of Skútustaðagígar. The lake, like these craters, was formed by a volcanic eruption about 2,300 years ago, and it is renowned for its rich birdlife, including various species of ducks and geese. Here, you will have a chance to take a walk along the shore and enjoy the tranquil beauty of this unique natural environment.
After that, we will visit the Námaskarð geothermal region, a truly unique place where you will be able to witness the power of geothermal activity up close. You will see steam vents, mud pots, and hot springs that are constantly bubbling and spitting out boiling water and mud. The landscape here is otherworldly, with a combination of vibrant colors and unique geothermal features.
Finally, we will finish our tour at Myvatn Nature Baths, a series of natural hot springs that are a popular spot for relaxation and rejuvenation. The warm, mineral-rich waters are said to have healing properties, and you will have the opportunity to soak in the warm water while enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
Overall, our tour of Mývatn will provide you with an unforgettable experience of Iceland's natural beauty and geothermal activity, and you'll have memories that will last a lifetime.
