Take the early morning flight to from Reykjavík Domestic Airport and upon arrival at Akureyri Domestic Airport, you’ll be met by a our guide for a Lake Mývatn tour

This Lake Mývatn tour travels through area witch by many is considered the most beautiful and at the same time the most catastrophic place in Iceland.

We go east from Akureyri, cross Eyjafjörður fjord where the view is great towards the town, the ocean and the high mountain tops. After only half hour drive we arrive at the picturesque Goðafoss Waterfall where we make good stop before we travel for another half hour all the way to Lake Mývatn.

We explore the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar and walk on top of one crater and get a great panoramic views of the area. For the next hours we visit local nature highlights, such as Hverir Mud Pools, Mt. Námafjall, Dimmuborgir Lava Fields and Grjótagjá, that is a part of the rift between the Eurasian & American Continents.

The lake area has served as a filming location for number of major Hollywood films and TV shows, such as Game of Thrones, Fast & Furious and Star Wars.

Before returning back to Akureyri for your flight back to Reykjavík we visit the almost unreal Nature Baths, located in the middle of lava fields, where you can soak in the relaxing geothermal lagoon. The entry fee is not included in the tour price, but can be added upon booking or paid on site. We stop for at least 1 hour at the Nature Baths.

Our friends at Saga Travel offer wide range of other tours from Reykjavík and from Akureyri

Frequently Asked Questions

-Lunch is not included in any of the tours

-We always stop at some place where you can buy some food. A picnic in the case of the Glacier Walk during the South Coast.

-The gastronomic selection once you leave Reykjavik is quite limited. So, even though the prices are the ones of fine dinning, don’t expect any fancy places or menus.

-Giving recommendations about food is always difficult, and we have got feedback on both ends of the scale. Food being very good, and food being expensive and bad.

-Iceland is a place with very unstable weather, so you can expect anything at any time.

-Bring your sunglasses and your raincoat everywhere.

-During the winter you may find icy walkways, so having a pair of ice-walkers is not a bad idea during the winter. Quite often we do have some ice-walkers on the minibuses that you can borrow, but not always.

-All our tours are rather easy going, so no need of any special gear, outside the Glacier Walk on the South, where you need some shoes rigid enough as to tie the crampons without hurting your feet. You can borrow some footwear for the Glacier Walk on the South Coast.

– All cancellations must be made by e-mail and confirmed by Geoiceland customer service.

– Cancellations made with more than 48 hours notice will receive full refund of the payment.

– Cancellations made between 48 to 24 hours prior to departure will be charged 50% of the total.

If GeoIceland ehf is the one canceling the tour, you’ll receive a full refund.

-German, Swedish, Spanish, and French available for private groups.

-The concept is a minibus tour, with microphone commentary during the transit between stops, and once at the sites, free time to explore the location by yourself.

-All the tours are quite easy going, outside the Glacier Walk or the Snowmobiling (nothing extreme, but requires a minimum fitness).

-We have walks around the areas, but for people with mobility problems, or those who just don’t feel like walking, they can always remain on the minibus for the transit.
