Explore a beautiful lake and its surroundings on our Lake Mývatn Day Trip. You'll venture to a volcanic region in northern Iceland widely considered to be one of the natural treasures of the country.
Lake Mývatn Day Trip
At 9 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Akureyri and set off in our minibus towards Lake Mývatn. On the way to our destination, we'll travel along the shores of Iceland's longest fjord, Eyjafjördur. We're sure you'll be enchanted by the natural beauty in this area as we make our way to the lake.
The first stop of the day will be the Goðafoss waterfall, a place steeped in history. In 999 AD, one of Iceland's key historical events took place here when a collection of pagan idols and relics of the ancient Viking religion were thrown into the void.
Afterwards, we'll continue on to the region of Lake Mývatn, where we'll find an incredible volcanic landscape. We'll then travel through the wetlands and see the mouth of the Laxa River, which ends in the lake. Bird lovers will also have a great time, as they'll be able to observe a wide variety of avian species on this trip.
Next, we'll walk along the trails Dimmuborgir. As we walk through these lava fields, formed two millennia ago, you'll be able to admire the spectacular variety of rock formations. For the rest of the day we'll continue exploring the region and visiting fascinating places such as Hverarönd and Grjótagjá Cave, which is one of the most beautiful caves in Iceland.
We'll then return to your hotel in Akureyri, where we'll arrive at around 2 pm.
