Bárðarbunga Volcano September 4 2014 - 15145866372

Day one:
In this tour you will see how the power of ice and fire has shaped the land as we drive through the lava fields on our way to Herðubreiðalindir. We stop at Askja caldera and take a 30 min walk to the crater Víti where you can have a dip in the natural geothermal pool at the bottom of the crater. Heading to Drekagil canyon where you can see dragons and faces in the walls of the canyon. We spend the night in Sigurðarskáli (not included in the price) which is situated in a valley that seperates Kverkfjöll and Dyngjujökull, a part of Vatnajökull glacier.
Day two:

In the morning you have the opportunity to take a hike up to the glacier with a local guide.

On our way back to Akureyri we drive to Hvannalindir which are 630m above sea level. The name Hvannalindir derives from the plant Angelica which thrives in the area, undisturbed by the grazing of livestock. One of the most famous Icelandic outlaw lived there for a while with his wife. We take a walk in the desert oasis where it is believed the outlaw hid.

Krepputungur is yet another place we visit with its 8000 year old lava.
We drive through the volcanic desert towards Möðruvellir and Lake Mývatn.
