1. From Akureyri: Lake Mývatn Guided Tour with Lunch
Benefit from pick-up from your cruise ship in Akureyri Port, and then drive to Lake Mývatn and the surrounding wetlands area near Krafla volcano. Stop at Goðafoss waterfall and hear about its important role in the history of Iceland. Continue to the pseudo craters of Skútustaðagígar, formed when hot flowing lava met with ice-cold water from the lake. See the lava fields of Dimmuborgir, rich in mythical sagas and stunning to look at for the lava pillars and rock formations. Stop at the boiling mud pools of Hverir and gaze in awe at the steaming fumaroles and sulfur pits. Discover the thermal waters of an underground river at Grjotagja, where you will stand on the continental rift between Europe and America. Stop for a quiet and relaxing lunch at Mývatn Heritage and Nature Museum away from the big bus crowds. A light soup lunch and admission to the museum is included in the tour. Return to Akureyri Port at least 1 hour before your ship’s departure for the end of the tour services.
