    What to Expect
    Tour starts with a departure from Akureyri Port were we drive towards the magnificent Lake Mývatn area. Our first stop is by Goðafoss Waterfall. Goðafoss plays an important role in the Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity. Our first stop at the Lake Mývatn area are the picturesque Skútustaðagígar Psuedo Craters, formed from explosions when the flowing hot lava met with the ice cold water from the lake. We continue to Dimmuborgir Lava Fields, full of lava-pillars and formations that are rich of mythical sagas and ghoulish trails.  We come to the warm underground river in Grjótagjá Rift, where you will stand on the continental rift between Europe and America. The final stop by Lake Mývatn is the geothermal area of Hverir, with boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and sulphur pits. Various photo stops are added to the tour depending on the weather. The tour ends with a return back to port in Akureyri, in time for your ship’s departure.
    The duration of this tour is 5-6 hours and departure and return schedule is as follows:
    08:00 – 13:00/14:00
    09:00 – 14:00/15:00
    10:00 – 15:00/16:00

    With this same tour company we had William,  a terrible guide, and Odin, a terrific guide, so I guess having a somewhat average guide, which Elli was, should be expected. He was okay. Definitely better than William,  but not nearly as good as Odin. The...More
