Tour details

We begin our day by stopping at Goðafoss waterfall on our way to Lake Myvatn. Goðafoss plays an important role in the Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity. We keep on going to the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar before we continue to the mystic Dimmuborgir (Dark Cities) full of lava-pillars and formations that are rich of mystic sagas and tales. We come to the warm underground river in Grjótagjá rift and head to the geothermal area of Hverir with boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and sulphur pits. Krafla volcano area is our next destination in this tour and we drive past the power station bearing the same name that relies on geothermal steam energy for its operation. We then come to the explosion crater Víti that was formed in 1724 in the Myvatnseldar eruption and from there we will enjoy the view over Leirhnjúkur volcano.

In the end of the tour we come to the beautiful Myvatn Nature Baths. There we enjoy one/two hours relaxing in completely natural pool of geothermal water based in the middle of lava fields and with great view over Lake Myvatn.
