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). There's still lots to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, admire the sheer force of Dettifoss Waterfall, explore the activities along Lake Myvatn, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Krafla Lava Fields.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, use the Akureyri trip itinerary maker app.
