The Mývatn area is in winter of bizarre beauty: the Lavatowers of Dimmuborgir rise from the snow, in the background you see the black ash crater Hverfall and the hot water vapors in the geothermal areas rise in great columns in the sky. We will spot all the main sights in Mývatn (Pseudocraters, Dimmuborgir (the Dark Castles), Hverir (geothermal hot area with bubbling mud pools), the continental divide as well as Godafoss (waterfall of the God) on the way to Mývatn
Another highlight will be of course your Husky-tour: we attach the huskies to the sledge wherever snow conditions are best - an experience in pristine nature!
We culminate this winter fairy tale experience in the amazing water of the Nature Baths where we warm up and relax.

- We take 2 sledges per turn, so 2 guests can be steering a sledge at the same time.
