Getting There

With Akureyri being based up in the North you have a couple of options to consider to get up there. One is to get the internal flight that operations from Reykjavik City Airport – the alternative is that you drive up there and that way you can take in all the other scenery Iceland has to offer in its other regions. Just to be sure to prepare for a couple of night’s stopovers if you wanted to opt for that.

Climate

Despite its name, Iceland is not necessarily that cold. Winter temperatures are an average of 3.6°C, and summer temperatures average around 15°C. In the summertime, you can enjoy long, extended hours of sunshine and in the wintertime, the nights can get dark enough for you to see the Northern Lights as long as you are away from light pollution!

Geography

Iceland is world-famous for its geology and geography. With huge mountain ranges and an active geothermal country with many geysers, hot springs and volcanic formations to be found – it is a breath-taking landscape for those after an adventure.

Iceland offers some of the best waterfalls in Europe, such as the Dettifoss regarded as the most powerful waterfall in the whole of Europe.

With a latitude of 64° north, Reykjavik offers a perfect base from which to embark on a northern lights adventure.
