Travel in comfort in a deluxe SUV for you and up to five of your closest friends.

We begin our day by driving to Goðafoss Waterfall. Known as "The Waterfall of the Gods", Goðafoss is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in all of Iceland. The waters of the Skjálfandafljót River fall from a height of almost 100 feet to produce this powerful force of nature. You'll have about an hour to explore the easily-approachable falls. Take the foot paths to the river base for great photo opps and excellent views of Geitafoss Falls, Goðafoss´s little sister. Ask your guide to tell you about the role Goðafoss has played in Icelandic history.

As we continue on to the Lake Myvatn region, you can expect to see vast lava fields and unusual rock formations before reaching the Natural Baths, known for their mineral-rich waters, originating from deep within the earth. These waters claim to have healing properties and while we can't guarantee that, we can guarantee two glorious hours of soaking, relaxing and de-stressing in the geo-thermally heated pool as you admire the volcanic landscapes that surround you.

If time allows, we will stop at the geothermal area of Hverir with its bubbling mud pools, steam vents, fumaroles and colorful red-orange landscapes or possibly Grotagja, a geothermal spring located in a cave.

After your day of nature, return back to Akureyri with time for exploring the town or maybe some shopping before your ship’s departure.
