Wonderful tour of Iceland Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Iceland - Roundtrip in 8 Days

“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”

Akureyri - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Considered the capital of the north, a visit to Akureyri is an adventure to the extremities of Iceland where, surprisingly, you’ll find a welcoming and picturesque city set on the banks of Eyjafjörður fjord. 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.

Travel Highlights

  • Akureyrarkirkja is Akureyri’s landmark church, in the typically stark and impressive Icelandic style, looking down over the town from a high hill.
  • Laufás is a manor farm that has been conserved since the 1860s and is well-known for it’s turf roofs.
  • Take a visit to Akureyri Museum, a small but well-established collection of the town’s history.
  • Take a boat tour to the islands of Hrísey or Grímsey.
  • Equestrian enthusiasts should go horse riding in the nearby Akureyri countryside.
  • Many travellers tour to Akureyri in order to go whale watching. Humpback are the most popular, though Minke whales, Harbour porpoises, dolphins and seals are also common. If you’re lucky, you’ll see some Orcas!

  • Swim in the Akureyri geothermal swimming pool.
  • See if you can spot the Northern Lights.
