Diamond Circle Day Tour from Akureyri

1 review
Discover the incredible Diamond Circle of North Iceland with an experienced local tour guide in a small group. This tour uncovers the natural beauty of the utterly unique landscape of Northern Iceland. As we travel through the diverse glacial and volcanic geothermal areas we visit top attractions including the amazing Dettifoss waterfall in Vatnajokull National Park and an opportunity to enjoy the GeoSea Geothermal baths.This great value tour includes pick up and drop off. Our first stop is at Godadoss waterfall, the famous 'Waterfall of the Gods' and then we visit the Lake Myvatn area for photo stops. Next is Dettifoss Waterfall, Europe's most powerful waterfall and you can also visit Selfoss waterfall in Vatnajokull National Park, We also visit Jokulsargljufur Canyon, Hljodaklettar Echo Cliffs, Asbyrgi Canyon, Tjornes Peninsula Cliffs where Puffins nest in the summer and then Husavik town where you can use the GeoSea Geothermal Sea Bath (optional add-on, entrance fee not included)

The whale museum is very interesting. They have a whole whale skeleton inside and the exhibition is done very well and you learn lot of different things. Some video footages are also available to give you a better insight.

We have visited a lot of museums (safn) in Iceland. In Husavik this is a must before or after doing your whale safari. Very nice and explainable display.

Always rare to find a completely non-boring museum with even cool an pretty items in the gift shop. We did this after the whale watching tour and genuinely learned something. The skeletons are pretty amazing in size as well. Tip: You get a discount if you have whale watching tickets! (Normal entry price about 2000 isk for an adult)

Don´t miss the whale museum if you go to Húsavík, it is worth it. Our 4 year old loved it also and there is a little room there for toys if kids get tired of whales:)
