Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
Go for a jaunt from Akureyri to Reykjahlid to see Grjotagja Cave about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, take in the dramatic natural features at Hverir, take in nature's colorful creations at Arctic Botanical Gardens (Lystigardurinn), and take in the dramatic scenery at Dettifoss Waterfall.
