Mývatn Tours

Mývatn Tours offers guided tours in the Mývatn area. The Askja Lunar Tour has for many years been the most popular guided day tour from Lake Mývatn. The tour, which takes 11-12 hours, takes the passengers on 4×4 buses through Iceland’s largest wilderness. You will see various geological sites and marvels of nature, such as the spectacular lunar landscape where the American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin trained before they ventured to the moon in 1969.

The tour also takes you to the Herðubreiðarlindir nature reserve, where fresh water flows from springs in an old lava flow. The springs sustain beautiful vegetation and form small ponds that provide conditions for flowering plants and birdlife in the otherwise barren volcanic landscape. 

The tour departs every day from the end of June until the first week of September, depending on when the road opens and closes
