    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Lake Myvatn Iceland

    The Lake Mývatn area is by many considered the most beautiful place in Iceland. This has been one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations for decades and for a good reason. An amazing journey through an area of extreme contrasts and nature’s diversity and displaying stunning bird life, flora, geothermal activity, geology and saga. The lake area has been a filming location for major Hollywood films and TV shows, such as Game of Thrones, Fast & Furious and Star Wars.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Dettifoss Waterfall, Lake Myvatn Iceland

    Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe, 100m wide and with fall of 44m. There is a short walk from the parking lot to the best viewpoints of the waterfall, and adjacent waterfalls of Hafragilsfoss and Selfoss. If the ground is covered in snow (which it is usually in winter), we use snowshoes to make the hike easier.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Selfoss Waterfall, Iceland

    Selfoss is a small but beautiful waterfall based just next to Dettifoss Europe's most powerful waterfall.

    Duration: 30 minutes
