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)

You feel like in a movie - in a moment an orc could jump around the corner. Nice for a stopover and a little hike. Attention, the lava rocks are extremely sharp-edged - not suitable for climbing. And it's teeming with these little flies - mosquito protection around the head really makes sense.

The odd lava formations make for an interesting place for a walk. Follow the red path towards Kirkja (the church) and on the left you will pass the rock with a hole in that you can walk through. Best photograph the map at the start because the ones along the paths are worn and hard to read. We were lucky to have virtually no flies around us. If you found my review helpful I would appreciate your vote.

Ended up walking all of the well marked trails with my one year old on my back. Took about an hour and 40 minutes in total. Beautiful landscape. There’s a lot of lava stuff in Iceland but I haven’t seen anything so concentrated. You can see why it’s called the troll city. Easy trails, well marked, and plenty of photo opportunities. Definitely worth a stop.

Very interesting lava field near lake Myvatn. You can walk around the vast area, between the huge lava formations and colourful vegetation (in september).

We could feel the Trolls breathing down our necks..... a magical, fairytale place. We went in winter, which, because everything was black & white, it was very eerie.
