Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Explore Northern Iceland's landscapes on this half-day excursion. Travel to Godafoss Waterfall where Thorgeir Thorkelsson and the Icelandic parliament decreed the island would convert to Christianity. Next, we´ll stop for a short refreshment break at a local restaurant. Afterwards, you'll travel to Namaskard to witness boiling mud pools with dense vapors at one of the most active volcanic areas on Iceland. At Dimmuborgir, see weirdly shaped lava formations that were left exposed as this former lava lake cooled and receded. Before we head back to the ship, we'll take a tour of Akureyri, stopping for a photo opportunity at a panoramic viewpoint of the town and its harbor, if time allows.

Special Notes:

The drive between Akureyri and Godafoss is approximately 45 minutes. The return drive from Namaskard to Akureyri is approximately 90 minutes.

The rocky areas around Godafoss Falls are slippery and wet with jagged volcanic edges; passengers should take care if leaving the designated paths to take pictures and and wear appropriate footwear. Guests should stay within marked footpaths at the Namaskard area.

Passengers should not leave the designated paths.
