A 3 days trip to beautiful North Iceland

This is a three days/two nights trip leaving from Reykjavik capital to the North region of Iceland. You will choose what to do of the things I will list up in the itinerary section additional to what other things you want to do if you have any requests.

You can book your own accommodation or stay at my family's summerhouse in Aðaldalur, an area of lava near Húsavík (picture of the summerhouse in picture section).

I was born and raised in Akureyri so I know the area very well. Me and my family take these kind of tour every year and stay at the summerhouse for a week. I would love to show you around this beautiful area, the nature and wonders!

This tour is for up to 6 persons if you choose to stay at the summerhouse, you can book your own accommodation elsewhere and then the tour is for up to 19 persons.

I will customize the tour to your desire and needs. I want you to have the best time while visiting Iceland.
