Again, we took a private tour with Saga Travel to Lake Myvatn and Godafoss. Fantastic scenery and waterfalls. GoT fans - this is a must see.

Rented a car - was waiting for us at the port. Basically did the "Jewels of the North" excursion, but on our own.

Rented a car again, which gave us the freedom to see some of the amazing countryside. Iceland is ridiculously gorgeous, with amazing waterfalls and canyons appearing seemingly from nowhere. Godafoss is especially beautiful.

Nice stop. Explored the town. There is an older section of the town but somehow I missed my sense of direction. Someone did see and said it was nice but could tell the buildings needed a bit of reno.

Don´t take any over priced excursion from MSC, rent a car (booked before) and take a drive ex. Husavik for vale excursion.

Interesting port to visit and worth being on deck for the approach as there are often whales in the fjord (if right time of year). Berth walkable to town centre. Interesting cathedral and nice walk past here to botanical gardens. Famous ice cream shop about 20 minutes walk out of town but we went to Valdis in the main street - yummy! We had booked in advance a whale watching trip with Elding and it was very good - can recommend. Read Less

The waterfalls were beautiful but it was down pouring rain. the mineral baths were very nice and warm since we were already wet. Wish we had longer time to soak.

The hike up the 100 steps to the church is daunting but worth it. We didn't get to see the interior because a funeral was being held. We walked on to the Botanic Garden, which was beautiful.

Took a private tour which was all encompassing, went at our own pace, and added in some things we wanted to see. Would have liked a warning about the flies at Mytvan though as we had hordes of them descend on us there and at other stops in the area. Would have bought mosquito nets to protect our faces if we'd known. Read Less

Rented a vehicle here with the same couples and we had a joyous day. The people are so nice in Iceland.

Fabulous tour of Godafus and the lake and the city. Enjoyed doing this with only the 4 of us and a private guide.

Didn't go, but people seemed to like the whale watching. I went for my first ever jog near the arctic circle. Was one of the few days with sunshine on this cruise.

Here for 10 hours, 10 to 8 - little too long was a simple but enjoyable stop. By going here we crossed the Arctic circle so that was a treat too. People very nice and helpful.
