WHAT WE LOVE

Along the edge of the Arctic Circle, North Iceland has the mildest temperatures in the country. With a wide variety of natural and cultural wonders to explore, North Iceland truly is a playground for the nature lovers. The Lake Mývatn Classic Tour consists of the essential sights like the Goðafoss Waterfall, widely regarded as the most beautiful in all of Iceland. Witness the red soil and hissing fumaroles at the Hverir Mud Pools, then move on to Dimmuborgir Lava Fields to see the lava formations. Catch sight of the Iceland’s elusive whales on a silent whale watching tour – both animal and also environment friendly. Pro tip: make as little noise as possible to avoid spooking the whales!
