Húsavík and Mývatn on Your Own

€ 445

Exploring the town of Húsavík, Lake Mývatn area and the natural wonders of North Iceland.

You will be welcomed to North East Iceland with your rental car waiting, including maps and information about the area and where to visit. The Mývatn area is mystical, with its magnificent landscapes and rich animal and bird life, which is why people are drawn here, to observe and explore. It is renowned for its natural beauty. On this tour you have the opportunity to explore on your own, and we highly recommend a visit to the following sites:

Húsavík: a friendly town located by the Skjálfandi bay which has been known as the whale capital of Iceland.

Hverarönd (Hverir) by Námafjall: an expanse of ever-changing hot springs located at the foot of a spectacular volcanic mountain.

Dettifoss: a waterfall that boasts the greatest volume of any waterfall in Europe; five hundred cubic metres of water per second plunges over its edge. Dettifoss is 45 m high and 100 m wide.

Dimmuborgir (Dark Castles): an area of randomly strewn lava rocks and cliffs. Dimmuborgir is a place of surprises with its myriad of forms, small caves and towering volcanic rock formations pierced by natural apertures.

Skútustaðagígar: craters that were formed by gas explosions when boiling lava flowed over the wetlands.

Lake Mývatn nature baths: Iceland’s newest geothermal spa.
