Aboard a superjeep, this tour is a fascinating trip which discovers the natural habitats of several bird species in the area.
Starting from your Myvatn accommodation, you will be guided by a local who will provide the best itinerary to see a variety of birds in the area, thanks in great part to the relationship which the guide has with local landowners. On the tour you will learn all about the birds which inhabit Lake Mývatn in great part thanks to its incredible fertility providing abundance of feed.
