Tour Details

The Diamond Circle Tour in the Rough North

The Diamond Circle Classic tour is our favourite day tour. It takes you on an unforgettable journey through Iceland’s most catastrophic and diverse area, rich in volcanic and geothermal features. The stunning beauty of Lake Mývatn has been the main attraction in North Iceland. And east of the lake we enter the highlands arriving at Jökulsá Glacier River in Vatnajökull National Park. Massive glacier floods form the breathtaking landscape of Jökulsá from Vatnajökull, Iceland’s biggest glacier.

The canyons and rock formations visited in the Diamond Circle tour are impressive on their own but the iconic Dettifoss waterfall, the most powerful waterfall in Europe, is nothing short of majestic. The tour takes us north to the Arctic Coastline where we explore the canyon formation Ásbyrgi and drive along the coastline to the beautiful fishing village of Húsavík.

Diamond Circle offers the best Iceland has to offer. Powerful waterfalls, stunning nature, active geothermal areas and vivid birdlife. Sit back and enjoy our expert local guidance through this magical and rough terrain.

From June to the middle of August, we stop at Tjörnes Peninsula, where we can observe puffins nesting in the impressive cliffs by the coastline.

What to Expect

Pickup is from 7:45-8:00 am, and we start our tour in the North.

We drive east from Akureyri, cross Eyjafjörður fjord, and enjoy the view of the town, the ocean, and the mountains surrounding the fjord. After only a half-hour drive, we arrive at the picturesque Goðafoss Waterfall, where we stop before we travel for another half hour to the Lake Mývatn area. Before heading into the highlands, we have a short break at a local restaurant or a grocery store at the lake.

From Lake Myvatn, we head up to the highlands. There we explore the dramatic and captivating landscape formed by glacier floods and Jökulsá Glacier River. At one of our stops in this area, we sit down and enjoy a picnic in beautiful surroundings.

After a scenic drive along the Arctic coastline, we stop in the fishing village of Húsavík, where we can try the new GeoSea Geothermal Sea Baths. Those who don´t want to try the baths can spend time in the lovely town, visit the Whale Museum, or enjoy one of the charming cafes in town. After this last stop, we will head back to Akureyri.
