Day Tours

There is no better way to travel through the country than with the locals. Discover the hidden gems, get that little extra memorable experience, listen to their stories, and learn the knowledge they pass on. The Icelandic sagas and the natural wonders are often showcased as one with natural beauty when travelling in North Iceland.

Day tours can, of course, also include various activities. Whatever the season, you’ll find tours that require a little physical exercise, such as skiing, snowmobiling, jet skiing, horseback riding, sleighing, biking, hiking, rowing, or diving. For those looking for a bit more comfort, hop on a boat, bus, super-jeep, airplane, helicopter, or even a snowcat and experience all the best that North Iceland offers.

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.
