Grand Lake Mývatn and Nature Baths
On this tour you get to experience the amazing nature of Grand Lake Mývatn, enjoy the fantastic cuisine produced on the local farms and relax to your heart’s content in the wonderful geothermal hot spring of Mývatn Nature Baths. The tour shows you the best viewpoints around the lake taking you to spots only the locals know about. Your lunch stop is a key part of this tour being at a beautiful local cowshed restaurant where you can choose your lunchtime view from the lake or the charming field of cows! After lunch, let the relaxation commence as you soak off your cares at the hot spring natural baths; bliss!
Ásbyrgi Canyon and Coast Tour
This fully guided tour takes you on a hike around the stunning horseshoe canyon which is surrounded by cliffs, some reaching as high as 100m. The valley they enclose is packed with beautiful flora and fauna and is a magnet for the wildlife of the region; look out for puffins in the spring and summer months. If your legs ache after walking, relax in your SUV and enjoy the drive back along the coastal roads.
Siglufjörður & Beer Spa
This tour takes you to the beautiful fishing town of Siglufjörður which is located in a narrow fjord and here, perched on the edge of the fjord, you come across a must-do Icelandic experience; the beer spa! If you love to try something new on your luxury travels and are a fan of unconventional culture then this is the tour for you! Perfect for the beer lover in your life; revitalise your skin and enjoy a drink or two freshly brewed in their micro-brewery while relaxing in, quite literally, a bath of beer! Of course, this is a luxury tour, so the bath is a chic curved wooden tub, you bathe in privacy (though there’s space for two if you wish), there is also a sauna and the amazing views of Eyjafjörður truly elevate the experience.
