You start your visit with a domestic flight to Akureyri, where you spend one night, and end with a night in Reykjavík. The main focus is on the Northern part of Iceland with the town of Akureyri as base. The town is centrally located in North Iceland and therefore perfect for all day trips, especially if you want a part of your experience to be a search for the Northern Lights. It is situated in the driest area of Iceland and therefore has the least cloud coverage. We make sure that each day is an adventure that you will be able to share with friends for the rest of your life.
