Highlights of the North by Air

from £314
12 hours Year round


A good alternative for those with a limited amount of time in Iceland who would like to explore the island’s north, this full-day trip departs from Iceland’s capital for the northern city of Akureyri.

Travelling by coach, this guided tour will introduce guests to the magnificent and varied northern landscape, including a stop at the thundering Godafoss, the birding centre of Lake Myvatn which is pock-marked by volcanic craters and the ruggedly beautiful Skjalfandi Bay.

Iceland’s north is also home to Europe’s whale watching capital in Husavik, and, on arrival here, guests will join a 3-hour whale watching trip on board a converted fishing boat. After returning ashore, guests will return to Akureyri by coach before the return flight to Reykjavik.

Please note that children up to 11 years receive a 50% discount (excluding tax and service charges).

Duration: 12 hours, including flying time
Price: from £314 per adult
Departures: 07:30 daily, 18 June-31 August
