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). And it doesn't end there: admire the sheer force of Goðafoss Waterfall, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Myvatn, and don't miss a visit to Viti Crater.
