Unique day trip to Lake Mývatn and Dettifoss

On this day trip we drive from Seyðisfjörður up to the beautiful 620 m high mountain pass, Fjarðarheiði, and further down to the town of Egilsstaðir. The trip continues through the breathtaking valley, Jökuldalurin, and we will make a short photo stop at the dark desert landscape, Dimmufjallgarður. During the trip we pass Horseborg, where several movie scenes for major Hollywood productions have been filmed. We will make a stop at Námafjall, where we will see roaring pseudocrats and steamy sulphates. We are going to see the bubbly mud puddles and walk on the geothermal mud. We will make a stop at the Jarðböðin Nature Bath, where we will have a light lunch. A must on this trip is to bathe in the hot water from geothermal sources (entrence fee not included). Afterwards we will visit Dimmuborgir, which is an interesting lava landscape. On our return trip we drive to Dettifoss, which is a waterfall in northern Iceland. The waterfall is 44 meters high and 100 m wide and has an average water flow rate of 193 cubic meters per second, making Dettifoss Europe’s most powerful waterfall. This is without a doubt the highlight of the trip.
