Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
When in Akureyri, make a side trip to see Grjotagja Cave in Reykjahlid, approximately Reykjahlid away. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Goðafoss Waterfall, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Myvatn, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Namafjall (Namaskard), and take in the natural beauty of Mývatn Nature Baths.
