The tour starts in Akureyri, in the North of Iceland and the first stop is at the beautiful waterfall Goðafoss. You have enough time to view the falls up close before driving to Lake Mývatn. At this area of outstanding natural beauty we take you to places of interest, such as the lava maze at Dimmuborgir. We stop for refreshments at a local restaurant (not included in the tour price) before driving on to the King of Icelandic waterfalls – Dettifoss.
Dettifoss is believed to be the most powerful fall in Europe. And of course the biggest one in Iceland!
To visit Dettifoss is an experience you will never forget. Although we give you all the time you need to take photographs, your first glimpse of this giant waterfall will be your best memory. Not far from Dettifoss is another waterfall, Selfoss, within walking distance. The scenery around these waterfalls is as you might imagine it on some other planet. In fact Dettifoss recently played a big part in the 2012 Ridley Scott film, Promotheus, and others.
After visiting these giants, we travel to the Mývatn Nature Baths. Here you have the option of dipping in the relaxing geothermal hot spring. There is a final drive around the lake before driving back to Akureyri.
