Lake Myvatn Classic

Lake Mývatn Classic tour takes you on an amazing journey through an area of extreme contrasts, bird life, flora, geothermal activity, geology and saga. We come to major Game of Thrones local shooting sights and experience why Icelandic nature has been the inspiration to so many fantasies. At the end of the tour we relax in the natural Mývatn Nature Baths surrounded by an overwhelming panoramic lava view (the admission is included in the tour price). The Lake Mývatn area is by many considered the most beautiful, and at the same time the most catastrophic, place in Iceland. We begin our day by stopping at Goðafoss Waterfall on our way to Lake Mývatn. Goðafoss is a picturesque waterfall in Skjálfandafljót River. The first stop by Lake Mývatn is at the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar. From there we visit all the highlights of the area, such as Hverir Mud Pools, Grjótagjá Rift, Dimmuborgir Lava Fields and many more. Our last stop by Lake Mývatn before our return to Akureyri is the Mývatn Nature Baths, where we enjoy a relaxing time in completely natural pool of geothermal water based in the middle of lava fields with great view over the area.
