Myvatn tour

Mývatn, Iceland

Mývatn, Iceland

On this lake Myvatn sightseeing tour, we visit the many great places the area has to offer.

The highlights of the tour include Dimmuborgir lava park where we see very unusual lava formations and pillars, caves, and fissures. Some believe that these rock formations are Trolls that turned to stone. 

We will also visit famous locations where parts of the series “Game of Thrones” was filmed like Grjotagja cave and Höfdi cape. We will visit the Geothermal area of Hverir, and stop by the famous Myvatn Nature Baths. The Myvatn area offers a unique natural environment of geology and biota. You can imagine the play between fire and Ice and natural elements when you see the landscape in this magnificent area. 

We truly can say that at lake Myvatn you can experience the most and the best of what Iceland has to offer. Volcanic eruptions have played a crucial role in the formation of the landscape. Whether the plan is to enjoy the landscape, examine unique natural phenomena or take a closer look at the plant and bird life, Myvatn has it all. 

A large number of travelers visit Myvatn in the summer, but many believe the lake and its surroundings to be no less impressive and mystical in the wintertime with the added attraction of the northern lights. In winter at Lake Myvatn, you have the chance of seeing the northern lights in the dark night sky.  Keeping silent, watching, watching the lights dancing through the sky is a magnificent experience.
