Embark on a 4x4 Jeep tour to Lake Mývatn and the surroundings. Explore the North of iceland and see enchanting places such as Goðafoss waterfall (waterfall of the gods), Dettifoss waterfall (Europe´s most powerful waterfall), hot spring and pseudo crater areas and more.

Stop at the hot spring area at Hverarönd in Námaskarð. Then it comes to one of the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss. On the way back we come to the unique lava formations of Dimmuborgir which are among the most popular tourist attractions in the Myvatn area and also in Skútustaðagígar (pseudo crater area).
