Explore Northern Iceland's dramatic and dynamic landscapes on this all-day excursion. Travel to Namaskard to witness boiling hot mud pools with dense vapors that cloak the hot sulfur pits at one of the most active volcanic areas on Iceland. At Dimmuborgir, see weirdly shaped lava formations that were left exposed in the bed as this former lava lake cooled and receded. Continue to Skutustadir where you'll discover large craters situated on the southern shore of Lake Myvatn called pseudo, or rootless craters. They were formed when lava overflowed the lakeshore's sodden ground. Take a photo and then it's off to lunch where you'll enjoy a sit-down meal at a local restaurant. Afterwards, you'll head to Godafoss Waterfall. We'll return to Akureyri for a brief tour of the town. We’ll stop along a scenic coastal road at a vantage point near the fjord, if time allows, for a panoramic view of the town and its harbor before heading back to the ship.
Dress in accordance with local weather conditions (we recommend layers, the outermost being water/wind proof) with sturdy, non-slip footwear. The sequence of stops may vary by tour. Tour requires moderate amount of walking.
