The Lake Myvatn area is considered by many to be the most dramatic and also the most beautiful place in Iceland.
During the tour, we take a break for refreshments at a local restaurant or café.
After hotel pick-up in Akureyri, we begin our day by stopping at Godafoss Falls on our way to Lake Myvatn. This magnificent waterfall plays an important role in Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity.
According to the Sagas, chieftain Thorgeir of Ljosavatn threw his pagan idols into the falls when Iceland converted to Christianity in the year 1000, hence the name Godafoss, meaning "waterfall of the idols".
