Private Lake Myvatn and Godafoss

Explore the mystic countryside of northern Iceland with this private 7 hour tour. Discover the Godafoss Waterfall, the waterfall of the Gods, one of the most stunning waterfalls in Iceland before continuing to the Lake Myvatn area where you will drive around the lake and stop at the Dimmuborgir lava formations, Skutustadagigar pseudo craters, the Grotagja hot spring cave and the Hverir geothermal area.

Your expedition begins with a stop at Godafoss Waterfall in the river Skjalfandafljot. This stunning, horseshoe shaped waterfall is about 100 meters (328 feet) wide and played a crucial part in Icelandic history in 1,000AD when the formerly heathen country embraced Christianity, the then leader threw his Norse gods into the waterfall as a symbolic act of the conversion.

After snapping some Insta-worthy photos, it is time to continue to the beautiful waters of Lake Myvatn. This shallow lake is ringed by volcanic landforms and its surrounding wetlands are a favorite home of many species of ducks.

See the pseudo craters of Skutustadagigar, then make your way to the enchanted area of Dimmuborgir (Dark Cities). Walk between pillars of lava and along the trails through various volcanic rock formations. At Grjotagja Rift the underground caves contain a warm river running under foot. At the Hverir geothermal area you will discover one of the most out of this world sites on the island, a place where you can feel connected to the power of the planet. At the foot of the Namafjall volcanic mountain, the Namaskard geothermal area displays fumaroles, large mud pools, steam vents and a barren orangey-red landscape.
