Winter adventure

North Iceland is the number one destination for Icelander's winter activity's. In North Iceland are six ski resorts. In the north is the best ski resort in Iceland and that is Hlíðarfjall. If you like action heli skiing in Tröllaskagi could be something for you. In winter there are multiple attractions in the North, you can go on a whale watching trip from Akureyri, Dalvík and Húsavík, northern light trips are just around the corner and the culture blossom's during the winter with live theater and music. You should not miss the Yule Lads, they live in Dimmuborgir and tease people that come around. In December you can expect a white christmas in North Iceland and from October to April the North is truly a winter wonderland.

North Iceland

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
