Arrive at any time into Reykjavik.
Reykjavík to Akureyri
Explore the West coast of Iceland en route to Akureyri. Stop and visit Grábrók Crater and Glanni Waterfall before continuing north to Hvítserkur Cliff and Kolugljúfur Canyon.
Arrive in Akureyri in the evening.
Icelandic people share a very strong belief in Huldufólk - or, the "hidden people". Learn more about this mystical influence as you drive through some of the most magical natural landscapes in Europe.
Grábrók Crater Visit (15m-30m): Formed in a fissure eruption around 3000 years ago, Grábrók is the largest of the three craters that line the incredible Borgarfjordur landscape.
Glanni Waterfall Visit (15m): Stop at this small but beautiful tiered waterfall, believed to be the home to elves and trolls. The cascading waters against the backdrop of a rolling hilled Icelandic landscape will definitely make you reach for your camera.
Hvítserkur Cliff Visit Vatnsnes, (15m-30m): Get ready for one of those only-in-Iceland tales. Believed to be the remains of a troll caught in the daylight, Hvítserkur cliff is a rock formation jutting 15m up from the water on the coast of the Vatnses Peninsula. Keep your eye out for seals along the shore.
Kolugljúfur Canyon Visit Víðidalsá (15m-30m): Kolugljúfur canyon is a gorge formed by the cascading waterfall flowing from the calm Víðidalsá river. The canyon gets its name from the giantess, Kola, who formed the canyon by the scraping of her fingertips.
Enjoy a free day in Akureyri. Opt to visit Mývatn nearby and explore lava formations of Dimmuborgir and the geothermal area of Námaskarð, or go rafting.
With its laid back cafes, traditional Icelandic restaurants, and easy access to some of the most incredible sights in the world, this small town is the perfect place to spend some free time.
Akureyri to Reykjavík
Spend the morning in Akureyri to explore this small town. Take in the sights of the surrounding mountain range, or enjoy a coffee with the locals at a street side cafe. Opt to take a whale watching tour. Return to Reykjavik in the late afternoon.
Depart at any time from Reykjavík.
