Highlights
  • Icelandic tourism is booming, but it’s still mostly land-based around the famous - yet well-worn - Golden Circle route.
  • While bigger cruise liners have to moor out at sea and commute into shore via tender, we’ll drop anchor in the middle of port towns like Akranes or Isafjodur.
  • Sail directly beneath the incredible Latrarbag Cliffs, a sheer 450 metre wall of volcanic rock, home to millions of puffins and northern gannets..

Akureyri Tour Reviews

5.0 - Excellent Based on 4 customer reviews
Wonderful tour of Iceland Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Iceland - Roundtrip in 8 Days
Alice Root From USA
5 - Excellent
“I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the travel package you and co-workers put together. We had no problems at all with the accommodations, and everything went quite smoothly with the vouchers. The inns were comfortable, and the car arrangements also went well. The extra time near Lake Myvatn allowed me to have a wonderful horseback ride and practice the "tolt" at Hestasport. Thankfully the storms didn't interfere with travel too much. 

It was a bit of a challenge communicating back and forth for the planning aspect, with the time and date differences, but we had a great trip and enjoyed Island a lot, amazing place! Thanks for your help.”

“In the meantime, we have returned well and healthy from our trip to Iceland and we are deeply impressed by the nature experiences and various impressions of the journey.

Everything went well, car, nights, whale watching; Only a little more time would have been there and there. But that was also clear given the tight time budget. A nice first impression, we'll be back for sure. Thanks again for the successful compilation of the tour and greetings”

But don’t be fooled, this city sits on the doorstep of the arctic circle and with only 18,000 inhabitants would be considered just a town by normal standards. Nevertheless, it’s the perfect place to base yourself while exploring the wilderness of Iceland’s north. Akureyri is an oasis of cosy, cool cafes, excellent restaurants and culture in abundance.
