Activity description

If you want to cover the most ground while contemplating the incredible natural wealth of Northeastern Iceland, a 4x4 excursion is the perfect option!

The Lake Myvatn area has a unique and gorgeous natural environment. Whimsical rock were formations created years ago as a consequence of volcanic eruptions and have created incredible landscapes that will capture your eye.

An authentic combination of fire and ice is a way you could describe the region. When winter arrives, Lake Myvatn freezes and becomes solid ice, yet not for you'll find an active volcano site. Without a doubt, Lake Mývatn has the most and the best of what Iceland has to offer.

Volcanic eruptions have played a crucial role in the formation of the landscape. During this amazing 4x4 excursions you'll be able to have a close look at the natural phenomena, take a closer look at the fauna and flora, or just contemplate the beauty of this place.

Amazing North offers you three different 4x4 excursions. The Dettifoss excursion will take you to the large lava field of the 1875 eruption in Askja, Ódáðahraun. You'll admire the amazing scenery formed by both fire and the glacial river Jökulsá á Fjöllum.

The Highlights of the North excursion will also cover this area but before you'll visit Goðafoss, the waterfall of the Gods. You'll continue to Bárðardalur along the glacial river Skjálfandafljót and visit Aldeyjarfoss. Then at the Skútustaðir Pseudocraters, you'll admire the beautiful landscape surrounding Lake Myvatn. At Dimmuborgir Lava Park where you'll see very unusual lava formations and pillars, caves, and fissures. Some believe that these rock formations are Trolls that turned to stone. The last stop before Dettifoss will be the geothermal area of Hverir.

The Myvatn excursion offers a shorter alternative to the Highlights of the North excursion in which you'll discover the essentials!
