Akureyri: Day Trip to Goðafoss, Lake Mývatn & Nature Baths

1. Akureyri: Day Trip to Goðafoss, Lake Mývatn & Nature Baths

Explore the natural beauty of Iceland during a day tour of Goðafoss Waterfall and Lake Mývatn. Visit a local hot spring and bathe in the soothing water of the nature baths. Leave Akureyri and drive along the scenic coast of Eyjafjordur, one of the longest fjords in the country. The first stop will be Goðafoss, a breathtaking 39-foot-tall waterfall, located in the Skjálfandafljót River. Next, head to Lake Mývatn, whose landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms due to a lava eruption 2,300 years ago. Continue on to the cave of Grjótagjá and stop at the hot spring area at Hverarönd in Námaskarð. Take advantage of the opportunity to relax in the steam baths and geothermal water of Mývatn Nature Baths. On the way back to Akureyri, see the unique lava formations of Dimmuborgir and the pseudocraters of Skútustaðagígar. The last stop will be in Eyjafjordur where you will have time to take plenty of photos with the fjord as your backdrop.

What people are saying about Akureyri

Our guide, Thomas, was extremely knowledgeable (especially for a non native) about Iceland - the history, culture and the sites we were visiting. He drove and guided us seamlessly. We drove a lot, but with frequent stops we still felt like it was an active tour. He even make a couple of extra stops to allow us to see some incredible views.

Our tour guide/driver (of bus #22, also a teacher and runner) is excellent, went out of his way to show us as much as our schedule allowed. His helpfulness, kindness and knowledge became one of the highlights of our tour.

Superb excursion in very different places. Very good organization. Guide at the top. Only downside, too bad there is no translation into French. Or have an audio guide available..

Thomas was an excellent tour guide. He was very thorough and very knowledgeable. Excellent tour and I would recommend it to everyone

Picked up on time, always a relief. Thomas was very informative and we had plenty of time to view or stay. really enjoyed our tour
