North East Iceland Tours

Small Group Guided Tours to Iceland’s North East

The north-eastern part of Iceland is a great place to visit. Here the life is quieter than around Reykjavík but that does not mean that your options are fewer when you are looking for fun things to do. The north of Iceland is an absolute winner when it comes to whale watching with up to 99% chance of spotting a whale on a tour departing from the north.

The majestic waterfalls Goðafoss and Dettifoss attract visitors every year. Dettifoss is among the 10 Best Waterfalls of the World according to the World of Waterfalls.
Lake Mývatn and the surrounding area is one of the many amazing geological sites in Iceland that are well worth the visit. Mývatn is located in a geothermal area and was formed in a volcanic eruption about 2300 years ago. The pseudocraters at Skútustaðir and the rock pillars of Dimmuborgir are among the highlights we recommend to explore. Remember to keep an eye out for the birds if you are traveling in the summertime, because numerous species nest in the area, including 13 types of ducks. Close by you will find Hverfjall crater and Námaskarð geothermal area. After a day exploring the area, a visit to Mývatn Nature baths is an excellent choice.
The northern highlands, where Askja and Víti Volcanos reign the wilderness along with the queen of Icelandic mountains, Herðubreið, are not accessible until in the middle of June, but this area is quite unique and highly regarded by travelers. On your way to or from the magical east fjords of Iceland be sure to stop at Möðrudalur, the highest inhabited place in Iceland at 469m above sea level.
