Welcome to North Iceland! Distant, at times harsh, and located far from Reykjavík, relatively few tourists visit this isolated part of our country.
For those who do, it is perfect for disconnecting from everyday life and escaping the hustle and bustle of the city.
Northern Iceland is home to some of our island’s most breathtaking natural wonders, such as roaring waterfalls, vast canyons, rarely accessible highlands, volcanic craters, and geothermal areas with hot springs.
The essential attractions here create a spectacular sightseeing route; the Diamond Circle.
The capital of the North, Akureyri, a charming, beautifully situated town, is the main starting point for excursions and a great place to stay for a few nights.
And consider heading to Húsavík for some of the best whale-watching tours in Iceland.
With awe-inspiring austere landscapes, resilient tundra vegetation, and the possibility of wild animal encounters, it’s easy to feel like you’re at the end of the world here.
