Full description
Day one:
Be collected in Reykjavik and drive along the Ring Road of Iceland. Make stops by impressive sights such as the Grabrok volcanic crater and the unique rock formations of Hvitserkur basalt stack. You will also visit a famous local microbrewery in a tiny charming village before arriving at the fishing village of Dalvik, where you spend the night in a cozy hotel. If the forecast for the northern lights is in your favor you may well be able to spot the amazing show put on by this natural phenomena. 

Day two:
After a nourishing breakfast at your hotel, head out for today's adventures. Discover the historic waterfall of Godafoss, stunning Lake Myvatn Region, enchanting Skutustadagigur pseudo craters, Dimmuborgir and Viti volcanic craters, and Iceland's most terrific geothermal fields, Namaskard. At Myvatn, have the option to enjoy bating in the beautiful Myvatn Nature Baths, which are better known as the Blue Lagoon of the North. End a full day of sightseeing and drive through the charming town of Akureyri, the capital of the North, on your return to your hotel in the Dalvik region.

Day three:
You will begin your last day with a whale watching adventure from Dalvik. Try to spot some of the gentle giants of the North. This experience is simply like no other. The common sights are the favorite humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor purposes, and minke whales. After the whale watching, have the chance to go sea angling where your guide will barbecue the catch of the day for the whole group.
