Akureyri - Godafoss Waterfall - Lake Myvatn - Akureyri

This winter tour to one of the most interesting spots in North Iceland focuses on the most attractive features of the Lake Myvatn and its surroundings.

The first stop is at Godafoss Waterfall, not only famous for its breathtaking beauty but also for its significant historic value related to the Christianisation of Iceland. In autumn the waterfall and the river are surrounded by lush and colorful vegetation. In winter as the temperatures go below freezing the waterfall is often partly bound in ice.

From Godafoss the tour continues across the Fljotsheidi heath and through the valley of Reykjadalur to the Lake Myvatn area, with first stop at Skutustadir and the Skutustadagigar pseudocraters. We drive on to Dimmuborgir, a lava maze of magnificent basalt pillars and lava sculptures. After a short walk in the park the tour continues through the lava field to Grjotagja (road conditions permitting), which used to be a popular underground bathing cave among the locals before the Krafla Fires (1975-1984) when the water became too hot to bathe in.

Crossing the Namaskard mountain pass we continue along the road that passes Krafla geothermal power station to Mt.Krafla and the explosion crater Viti which marked the beginning of the volcanic eruption in 1724. From Viti crater there is a good view over Leirhnjukur volcanic zone and the lava field formed in the Krafla fires 1975-84.

Next we explore the solfatara field of Hverir (Namaskard) where ground water is heated by an underground magma intrusion. Sulphur deposits are brought to the surface and the area is characterized by a strong smell of sulphur. Here we have chance for a short walk around the fumaroles and mud pits before we head for the final destination of the tour, the Myvatn Nature Baths (entrance fees are included), where visitors get the chance to bathe in the silky smooth geothermal water.

After the stop at the Nature Baths we drive back to Akureyri.
