Full description
The Lake Mývatn area is considered by many to be the most beautiful place in Iceland. Begin your 8-hour tour with a stop at Goðafoss Waterfall, a picturesque and iconic site located on the Skjálfandafljót River. Your next stop in the Lake Mývatn area will be the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar. You’ll also see more of the area’s highlights, including the Hverir mud pools, Grjótagjá rift and the Dimmuborgir lava fields among others. The final stop of the day is at the Mývatn nature baths, where you’ll have the option of relaxing in a natural pool of geothermal water, located in the middle of lava fields and with great area views.

A somewhat packed program, but very eventful.

We were picked up on time by the cruise ship and drove with a minibus and a very nice tour guide. The program was very extensive and we would have liked more time at some stops. The lake, the adjacent volcanic landscape with surface activity and the natural pool were particularly worth seeing. On the way we could enjoy the great landscape. In the end we were dropped back on time at the ship. Cheap and worthwhile alternative to the excursions of the cruise lines.

The guide was very knowledgeable and planned our day in order to avoid the crowds. We were in a small group of 16 on a minibus, so we were able to explore some hidden gems where the coaches didn’t go. A spectacular day and back in plenty of time to pick up our cruise.

The guide who took us in charge was really nice and friendly. You could tell that he was proud of his country and history and we learned a lot thanks to him. I would definitely recommend this tour, it’s an easy and very friendly way to visit a lot of beautiful sites of Iceland in one day, learning a lot of anecdotes you would miss just on your own.
