Know More about this tour

First drive along the coast of Eyjafjordur. Begin by stopping at Goafoss, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, on your way to Dettifoss and lake Mvatn. The lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms, including lava pillars and rootless vents. Stop at the hot spring area at Hverarnd in Nmaskar. 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 Sktustaaggar (pseudo crater area). Your last stop is in Eyjafjordur where you can see over the fjord to Akureyri.

    Well I booked a flight with Iceland air to fly there for the day. The night before less than 24 hr the tour was canceled due to weather. I’m out the flight money for 2 people can’t get that back. Very upset that they didn’t canceled 24 hrs before I feel some one should at less give me some money back Don’t book with Iceland air no refund and no he tour company should of cancelled why before less then 8 hrs before that flight. We all see the weather on the tv new the storm was coming.

    We had been fearful that this tour had too much for one day, but Thor's calm demeanor and well-timed stops made it all easy. As a local, Thor had some great stories about the area and its people, but was quiet when he didn't have anything interesting to say. We made a special trip to Akureyri to take this tour, but the combination of great things to see (waterfalls, thermal areas & beautiful scenery) and sunny weather made it all worthwhile.

    It was amazing. Very packed day, so so much that we saw, and had wonderful ice cream and lunch. Such a packed day!

    I arranged a tour with Reynir at Star Tour's before our Iceland tour. Very responsive to emails and quick response - perfect! We were picked up at the Port in Akureyri on time and our tour guide was Thor. There were only 7 of us on the tour of mixed nationalities and we went off for out 8 hour tour in a large land cruiser to lake Myvatn and Godafoss along with multiple other magnificent places! Our tour was a perfect pace and Thor was an excellent guide. Whilst the weather was not perfect for us, somehow it didnt matter as destination was just so beautiful and contrasting, we saw so much! I would not hesitate to Recommend Star Travel to anyone travelling to this part of Iceland, they are fabulous. Thank you to Reynir and all the team at Star Travel 👏👌👍

    Weather and travel conditions caused us to miss our scheduled tour but the guide was very helpful and willing to accommodate. The tour covered all the sights in Akureyri and the guide explained everything. The guides driving was excellent and our safety was always a priority. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    È stata una gita incredibile. Paesaggi mozzafiato. La nostra guida Reynir è stata una persona stupenda: gentile, discreta, e molto professionale. Ci ha accompagnato raccontandoci dei luoghi che stavamo visitando ed anche dell Islanda di tutti i giorni, di storie e leggende. È stato anche molto carino ad aiutarci quando abbiamo avuto qualche difficoltà per via del volo cancellato. Abbiamo finito la giornata immergendosi nei bagni naturali, un esperienza unica. Grazie ancora Reynir

    Me and my pal had an awesome time with Reynir! We booked through Nonnie travel (who were very helpful) the day before and Reynir came highly recommended and he certainly didn’t disappoint! Full of interesting info, both in terms of scientific facts and history about what we were seeing and more general stuff like what had been filmed in the locations and associated myths and legends, he was a really genial host! We saw so many great places on the trip and never felt hurried or rushed - it felt more like a road trip with friends rather than an organised trip and I’m definitely hoping to do some more trips with Reynir the next time I can afford to go back to Iceland!

    Wir sind pünktlich mit dem großen Jeep am Hotel abgeholt worden. Wir sind sehr viel gefahren, haben sehr viel gesehen und erlebt und der Guide / Fahrer (Jon) war fantastisch, sehr freundlich und umsichtig. Wir waren bei den Besuchen der Wasserfälle auf den eisigen Wegen die einzigen mit "Walk-Steigeisen" und wurden jedesmal von den anderen Gruppen darum beneidet. Die Erklärungen von Jon waren so toll, dass wir dachten, wir seien in die Zeit der Wikinger zurück versetzt. Wir sind spät am Abend vor dem Hotel abgesetzt worden. Es war ein sehr gelungener Tag. Vielen Dank an Jon von Marie (France) und Michael (Germany)

    This was one of our favorite tours in Iceland. We were the only people who signed up for the tour that day and Reynir kindly tailored the tour towards our interests. He was very knowledgeable in terms of history, culture, geology and any other questions we had. Highly recommend this tour!
