Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
Change things up with a short trip to Grjotagja Cave in Reykjahlid (about 1h 10 min away). Next up on the itinerary: admire the sheer force of Dettifoss Waterfall, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard), tour the pleasant surroundings at Krafla Lava Fields, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

Ottawa, Canada to Akureyri is an approximately 19.5- hour combination of train, flight, shuttle, and bus. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, and bus. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Ottawa to Akureyri due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Ottawa in October, with highs in Akureyri at 7°C and lows at 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
