Then we'll continue to Laxa river and Lake Myvatn area where we'll spend the day exploring the natural volcanic wonders. We'll enter the Rift zone and along the way you will see clear signs of past activity, as recent as 1975-84. Among the highlights are pseudocraters at Skutustadir, Dimmuborgir (The Dark Castle) and the solfatara field at Namaskard with its boiling mud pits and steam vents.

In summer months the Lake is teeming with bird life as various bird and duck species come nesting in the surroundings of the lake.

During the cold winter months large parts of the lake freezes which offers possibilities for various activity on the ice.

We'll continue to the thriving fishing village of Husavik which has become particularly well known for whale watching and the Whale Museum based in the town. We'll have time to visit the museum and learn about these impressive sea mammals.

Day 04

Lake Myvatn - Dettifoss Waterfall - Akureyri

Hotel: Local hotel or similar

Our last excursion will lead us to Europe’s most powerful waterfall, which drops 45m deep into the canyon of Jokulsargljufur. The tour involves an easy 20-min. walk by a gravel path to reach the waterfall (summer months).

During winter it may be necessary to walk through snow to get to the waterfall but the majestic view is well worth the effort. Reaching Dettifoss is dependent on weather and road conditions during winter months. If this case an alternative itinerary will be offerred.

We leave Lake Myvatn area and return to Akureyri. Overnight in hotel in Akureyri.
