Explore Iceland’s Arctic North With This New Icelandair Package

This relaxing five-night vacation package from Icelandair brings you to not just one, but two capital cities. After spending a day in Reykjavik, you will travel to Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland, to begin your arctic adventure.

North Iceland has everything to offer; it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for excitement or relaxation, the region has it all. Once you arrive in Akureyri, you’ll be met by a guide who will drive you to your hotel where you’ll receive one free admission to the city’s nearby geothermal pool. You will be welcomed to the city with a free cocktail and a 10% discount to dinner at the Aurora Restaurant. Don’t forget to be back in the hotel lobby at 9:30pm to begin the hunt for the Aurora Borealis.

Your next day will be spent exploring the charming town of Akureyri on your own terms. Visit one of the many museums to learn about North Iceland’s culture and history. For those who are looking to spend time outdoors at higher altitudes, spend the day at the nearby Hlidarfjall ski area or book a tour with one of the many tour guides.

On your final day, enjoy breakfast at your hotel before taking off to end your vacation with a day in Reykjavik. Once you have arrived back in the capital, the day is yours to plan. Take a dip in Blue Lagoon or maybe take a ride through the country on horseback with one of the many horseback riding companies. The choice is yours!
