About this activity
First drive along the coast of Eyjafjordur. Begin by stopping at Goðafoss, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, on your way to Dettifoss and lake Mývatn. The lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms, including lava pillars and rootless vents. Stop at the hot spring area at Hverarönd in Námaskarð. Then it comes to one of the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss. On the way back we come to the unique lava formations of Dimmuborgir which are among the most popular tourist attractions in the Myvatn area and also in Skútustaðagígar (pseudo crater area). Your last stop is in Eyjafjordur where you can see over the fjord to Akureyri.

Reynir was our tour guide and he was excellent. He was very accommodating and helped a pair on our trip out by dropping them off in a particular location so they can start their two-week long hike at the end of the tour. We spent an adequate amount of time at each location to get in the sights. There were six of us on the tour, which allowed us to get to know the other travelers. We exchanged contact information with these brothers from France. With large tours, it can always a be a bit awkward not knowing anyone else.

Some extraordinary sights in north Iceland are visited on this tour. The waterfalls were magnificent and the other-worldliness of Lake Mývatn and the volcanic landscape was totally unexpected. The sights are pretty spread out so its worth considering a guided tour so as to avoid missing anything. Reynir, our guide, was really great. Friendly and informative, he did the hard work so we could put our effort into absorbing the scenery. Thanks to him for a great day.

A very enjoyable tour to a spectacular part of Iceland. Our guide Reynir was very accommodating during our day. He is a private operator and we thought that we were on a private tour, however, on our pickup at the port we found that were another 4 people on the tour as well. Fortunately we arrived first and had good seats in the vehicle, but two of the other guests had terrible seats in the back of the 4 wheel drive vehicle which gave them little leg room for the day. So my advice would be to check whether you will be sharing the vehicle with more than 4 people. Other than that the day provided stunning scenery and variety in this part of Iceland. Make sure you get to Akureyri! Reynir also ensured we were back at the ship in plenty of time for our departure time.

A lot of fun and Reynir was awesome!!! I really appreciate this is a small tour, it makes the experience a lot more personal. Not too long in the car in one stretch, and enough breaks for food and stuff.

Excellent trip! Wonderful scenery and perfect arrangements. We fly from Reykjavik to Akureyri just to join this trip and it's totally worth the money. Our guide REYNIR is informative, patient, helpful and accommodating. He made the trip even more delightful.
