Day 3: A Day of Adventure at Mývatn
You’ll spend the day participating in your choice of activities in the area around Mývatn. Ranging from relaxing to adventurous, they are all sure to be quite memorable (although we are particularly fond of ending the day at Jarðböðin við Mývatn, a tranquil, mineral-rich bathing lagoon).
Optional activities may include:
- Touring in a super jeep along Mývatn’s rugged shoreline
- Go-karting on ice
- Cross-country skiing
- Horseback riding
- Sightseeing excursions to Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe; Námafjall,
a geothermal field filled with fumaroles and boiling mud pools; and/or Dimmuborgir,
an area of unusually shaped lava formations.
Marvel at the magical waterfalls, Goðafoss, and Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall. Explore the volcanic area around Krafla, the spectacular sulphur fields at Námaskarð, the dramatic lava formations at Dimmuborgir, and the pseudo craters at Skútustaðir.
