Situated on the north coast under snowcapped peaks at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord. Akureyri is Iceland’s second biggest urban area, and while you shouldn’t expect a big-city vibe (the population is only 18,000), this easy-going place has more buzz than anywhere outside of Reykjavík.



It’s also a great base for exploring the north’s green pastures, fishing villages, mudpots, waterfalls, ski fields and whale-filled bays. Signs of the earth’s power – glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields and stacks of basalt – are everywhere, while strange underwater features lure divers and offshore islands are home to colonies of seabirds.

North Iceland offers some of Iceland’s best Northern Lights viewing. A four night package will give you the opportunity to combine a visit to Reykjavik and this charming town of Akureyri, located on a stunning fjord only a 45 minute flight from Reykjavik.

Choose “Northern Lights in Akureyri” at http://www.icelandair.co.uk/offers-and-bookings/book-packages/package/item536401/northern_lights_in_akureyri/ and travel between October 2015 to April 2016.
