Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive into Akureyri, Iceland’s second city, and get transferred to your central hotel. Take the afternoon to relax and explore you surroundings

Day 2

In the morning you will be picked up and taken on your first winter-based excursion doing some snowmobiling, then in the afternoon you will get the opportunity to try husky sledding. Enjoy an early dinner before heading out on an adventure in search of the northern lights, and enjoy a soak at the amazing Geosea. Maybe even watch the aurora as you float on your back in this incredible nature bath!
