Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
Escape the urban bustle at Goðafoss Waterfall and Mývatn Nature Baths. Akureyrarkirkja and Saurbaejarkirkja will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Akureyri to go to Reykjahlid and see Grjotagja Cave, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Dettifoss Waterfall, explore the activities along Lake Myvatn, examine the collection at The Industry Museum, and take in the dramatic natural features at Hverir.
