The Mývatn 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 Mývatn 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, Lake Mývatn has it all.
A large number of travelers visit Mývatn in the summer, but many believe the lake and its Skutustadagigar surroundings to be no less impressive and mystical in the wintertime with the added attraction of the northern lights.
In winter at Lake Mývatn you have the chance of seeing the northern lights in the dark night sky. Keeping silent, watching the lights dancing through the sky is a magnificent experience.
We begin by visiting 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 Grjótagjá cave and Höfði cape.
We will visit the geothermal area of Hverir, and stop by the famous Mývatn Nature baths.
