The Diamond Circle is a popular tourist route around Húsavík and Lake Myvatn in North Iceland. The four primary stops on the route are Husavík, Asbyrgi Canyon, Lake Myvatn and Dettifoss Waterfall.
First stop is by Waterfall Goðafoss and from there to Lake Mývatn area and stop at Hverir, boiling mud pits, by Mt. Námafjall. That area is considered by many the most beautiful and at the same time the most catastrophic place in Iceland. We will take a short stop in Víti crater near Krafla Volcano.
Next stop is by Waterfall Dettifoss 45m high and 100m wide, where a mass of water, mud and sand rumbles into Iceland’s most impressive canyon.
After Dettifoss we travel alongside the Jökulsárgljúfur glacial canyon to Vesturdalur valley and to Hljóðaklettar, the echoing cliffs. They are world known for their basalt columns that characterize the ancient crater remains.
Next we come down to the imposing horseshoe-shaped canyon Ásbyrgi, surrounded by precipitous cliffs. This place is known to be the meeting place of the pagan Gods.
We then take our time to stop at a café when we drive through Húsavík village on our way back to Akureyri.
