Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO AKUREYRI
Church in Akureyri - Iceland

Fly to Akureyri, the largest town outside the capital Reykjavík. Collect the rental car and drive to your accommodation in  the Siglufjörður area for an overnight stay. Akureyri lies at the base of Eyjafjörður, surrounded on either side by a sloping wall of snow-capped mountains. (75km)

 

 

DAY 2
SIGLUFJORDUR TO SKAGAFJORDUR
Skagafjörður area - Iceland

Travel through the farmlands of north west Iceland to the Skagafjörður area, which is often referred to as the 'horse country of Iceland'. The farmers of Skagafjörður pride themselves on owning more horses than they can count and the area is perfect for those who wish to go riding. (B) (105km)

 

 

DAY 3
SKAGAFJORDUR TO LAKE MYVATN
Lake Mývatn - Iceland

Drive via the town of Akureyri to Goðafoss waterfall and onwards to Lake Mývatn. Lake Mývatn was formed 2,300 years ago in an eruption of one of the Krafla fissures. Often mistaken for a crater, Lake Mývatn is actually a very flat lava field that was dammed in around the edges by subsequent flows. The eruption disrupted the flow of the Laxa River and the basin was filled with underground spring water. Stay overnight in the Lake Mývatn area. (B) (170km)

 

 

DAY 4
LAKE MYVATN TO AKUREYRI
Dettifoss waterfall - Iceland

Today reach Dettifoss waterfall, Europe's most powerful waterfall, and visit the fishing town of Húsavík before travelling back to Akureyri along the north coast. Stay overnight in Akureyri. (B) (240km)

 

 

 

 

 

 

DAY 5
FLY TO THE UK
