Not far from the waterfall we find the Geysir area with its numerous hot springs. Geysir, the word meaning “to spout/erupt” is used internationally for spouting hot springs, found only in few countries of the world. In the area we find the geysir Strokkur (churn) that spouts every 5-10 minutes. The old Geysir has turned down its activity and has not spouted naturally for a long time, but it is there to be admired. Continue over the highland road Kjölur to Akureyri and your hotel.

There is a 98% chance of seeing whales on this cruise. Minke whales, fin whales, harbor porpoises and dolphins have all been sighted here. As the voyage begins, excitement soon grips both crew and passengers on the lookout for whales spouting or lifting their tails. "No two trips are ever the same," our captain informs us, which means there is always as much excitement and anticipation on every cruise. Minke whales are seen on virtually every excursion and some spectacular sightings have been made over the past couple of years. Afterwards we continue to lunarlike Lake Mývatn (midge lake) with its impressive green inlets and geothermal activity. We walk to the top of the 2500-year old crater Hverfjall (hot spring mountain), a crater that looks very similar to those found on the moon. From there we continue our walk to the bizarre lava formations at Dimmuborgir (dark cities). If it were not for the indicated walking paths, it would be very easy to get lost in this maze. The Mývatn area is a paradise for birds, especially ducks, and all the ducks to be found in Iceland lay their eggs in the Lake Mývatn area.
