Another remarkable day of exploration awaits us, starting with this morning’s transfer to Akureyri through the Héðinsfjörður Tunnel, the villages of Ólafsfjörður and Dalvík, and the countryside. In picturesque Akureyri, we’ll find some of Iceland’s finest preserved timber buildings, beautifully restored to their original glory.
Next, we ride to Lake Mývtan to explore the otherworldly environs of this national parkland. Along the way, we'll stop to marvel at Godafoss, meaning “waterfall of the gods” in local lore, view the Hverfjall crater, watch mud pots bubble at Namaskard, and make sense of bizarre lava formations at Dimmuborgir and the flat volcano system at Krafla. Our last stop is the incredible “Glacial River Canyon,” another of Iceland’s natural wonders, where a short walk will lead us to jaw-dropping Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall and Iceland’s “Niagara.”
