Welcome to the Arctic North Iceland...

Hiking and Cycling
During recent years, services for walkers and hikers have increased significantly
in North Iceland tourism. The hallmark of North Iceland for walkers is its wide variety
of trails. Trail maps and special programmes have been set up in many areas
and can be found at tourist information centres. Cycling is a mode of travel which
gives you the chance to be in close contact with nature all year round. Renting a
bike is a great way to explore this land of fire and ice.

Whitewater Rafting
Enjoy the excitement of whitewater river rafting in Vestari-Jökulsá, (West Glacial
River) or Austari-Jökulsá, (East Glacial River) which has earned the reputation of
being one of the most exciting rivers in Europe. Besides the excitement of white
water river rafting there are more relaxed family tours on offer in Vestari-Jökulsá
(West Glacial River).

Volcanic Area
One of Iceland’s most visited places is the Lake Mývatn region with hot springs,
craters, geothermal nature baths and amazing lava formations, as well as Mývatn
Nature Baths, the unique geothermal lagoon.

Northern Lights
Northern lights are often enjoyed in North Iceland. From end of August to April the
blackness of the sky may be suddenly riven by dancing, flickering veils of light,
in green, white or red. The area offers locations where conditions for observation
are excellent. Favourable weather conditions create unusually high chances for
catching the lights.

The Highlands
Highland excursions taking you to Herðubreið the “Queen of Mountains”, Kverkfjöll
or Hveravellir are extremely popular. Walking in the fresh mountain air or
driving along unmade trails in super jeeps and other rough terrain vehicles is an
amazing experience. In Arnarvatnsheiði, south of Húnaflói, trout fishing in the
wild, lonely nature is a special enjoyment for the keen angler.

The Icelandic Horse
Riding tours for any ability, horse shows and exhibitions are widely available in
North Iceland, including Skagafjörður, the centre of Icelandic horsemanship. Be
sure not to miss the opportunity to experience “tölt”, the unique gait of the Icelandic
horse.
