Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
When in Akureyri, make a side trip to see Grjotagja Cave in Reykjahlid, approximately Reykjahlid away. And it doesn't end there: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, admire the sheer force of Dettifoss Waterfall, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Myvatn, and admire the natural beauty at Arctic Botanical Gardens (Lystigardurinn).

To find where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Akureyri trip itinerary planner.

New York City, USA to Akureyri is an approximately 18-hour combination of flight, shuttle, and bus. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Greenwich Mean Time is 5 hours. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from New York City in December, with highs in Akureyri at 35°F and lows at 22°F. On the 3rd (Fri), you'll travel back home.
