About this Akureyri tour
Iceland's northern capital is a foggy scene out of your wildest dreams: Its cavernous landscape, cascading waterfalls, and steaming terrain will mist your vision as you descend into the depths of Iceland's folklore and pagan past on this mystical tour.
Your voyage begins as you cross the fjord to Godafoss, the towering crystalline waterfall of the gods, a cascading monument to the end of paganism and Icelandic saga. It was here, in the year 1000 A.D., that heathen priest Thorgeir cast his wooden Thor into the turbulent cascades, signaling the death of Iceland's Viking gods and the birth of Christianity.
Learn how the gods erupted in spite, as you traverse Dimmuborgir and Namaskard on the next leg of your tour, where boiling springs and sulphurous mud pools gargle up volcanic earth. You'll tiptoe around enormous craters and barren grounds.
The scenic drive alongside volcanic Lake Myvatn, its unmarred beauty mirroring the sky, will shift your weary soul into a dream-like state of bliss. Your final resting place, a patch of perfumed flowers in one of Akureyri's lovely gardens, awaits you back in the city.
