Our Incredible North Iceland breaks are about to enter their third season. Last year we transported more than four thousand people to Akureyri in North Iceland where our guests had to chance to witness spectacular sights like the Northern Lights and the volcanic landscapes around Lake Myvatn. These are bucket list experiences to be certain but there are also lots more exciting adventures to be had in the Arctic North of Iceland. Read on to find out more…

Whale Watching Excursion

Quite simply one of the most breath-taking experiences anywhere on the planet, see the incredible Eyjafjörður humpbacks in their natural habitat. Due to its temperate waters and abundance of food, Eyjafjörður is home to large numbers of whales all year round. With a Whale Watching Excursion from Akureyri you’ll search for these magnificent creatures in stunning surroundings. While sightings are never guaranteed, the excursion’s success rate is 99%.

Beer Spa

A really unusual experience and an absolute must during a trip to Akureyri. At the Bjórböðin Beer Spa, you can bathe in a big tub filled with beer, water, hops and yeast. The still-fermenting beer has a cleansing effect on your skin and you can help yourself to a few glasses of Kaldi beer while you’re in there! Afterwards you can enjoy dinner in the restaurant, take a tour of the brewery or relax in an outdoor hot tub where you may even get to see the Northern Lights. All in all, a truly once in a lifetime experience.

As part of your Lake Myvatn Adventure – Land of Fire & Ice tour, which is included in all Incredible Iceland packages, don’t forget to add on entry to Myvatn Nature Baths – known as “The Blue Lagoon of the North”. Relax in the super-heated pool as the mineral-rich water cleanses your skin and, who knows, you may even get to witness the Northern Lights as you bathe!

If you’re feeling more adventurous, add a snowmobile ride to your Lake Myvatn Adventure excursion. Enjoy a two-hour experience as you explore the frozen Lake Myvatn or the Krafla volcanic region. See the best of this Icelandic winter wonderland including views of the mountains, spectacular snowscapes and fascinating geological features.

You can add any of these exciting experiences to your Incredible North Iceland break in Akureyri. Simply click, “Add Optional Extras” on the “Booking Overview” screen, select your experience and click “Add Item”. Please note: unfortunately, there isn’t time to do both snowmobiling and nature baths experiences during the Lake Myvatn Adventure excursion.
