Itinerary

Góðafoss Waterfall

Godafoss Waterfall view

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".

Lake Mývatn

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.

Here, you will have a chance to take a walk along the shore and enjoy the tranquil beauty of this unique natural environment.

Námaskarð hot-spring area

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.

Mývatn Nature Baths

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.
