DAY 1: Reykjavik - Akureyri / Departure from Reykjavik.
Morning departure from Reykjavik. We drive towards the north of Iceland, through lavafiels and farmarea. Lunch stop en route before we reach Sauðárkrókur village where we will visit the Tannery Visitor Centre. From there we head to the beautiful fising village of Siglufjörður to visit the Herring Era museum which is the largest maritime museum in Iceland. We continue towards the north and make a stop a at a local countryside micro-brewery and enjoy some beer tasting before ending the day in the town of Akureyri.
The Tannery Visitor Centre is located in Sauðárkrókur, north Iceland, in the only tannery in Europe which makes fish leather. The Visitor Centre provides visitors with an unusual way to experience the tannery and its products: guided tours of the actual tannery, where fish-skin is ex
pertly processed to make high-quality leather. Fish leather from Atlantic Leather has caught the imagination of internationally-known fashion houses and brands such as Prada, Dior and Nike.
DAY 2: Local Food and Gourmet
The Herring Era Museum is Iceland’s largest maritime museum
The Boat House recreates the town’s bustling harbour of the 1950s, with many old fishing boats at the dock. Grána, a herring meal and oil factory of the 1930s shows how men and machines processed herring into meal and oil. The oldest museum building is Róaldsbrakki, built as a Norwegian herring station in 1907, it now includes an exhibition on herring salting in Iceland. The old building has largely been left as it was when it housed dozens of girls working in the herring fishery.
Join us on an exclusive cultural and gourmet tour and discover the very best of local North Icelandic production. During our visitto interesting destinations through the Akureyri area we will visit some of the old turf and wooden countryside churches and also meet enthusiastic local food producers where they will share their gastronomic knowledge and we can taste the products. Sample as you go mouth-watering local treats sourced especially for you.
DAY 3: Lake Mývatn Excursion and Northern Lights Tour
Enjoy an amazing journey through area of extreme contrasts, birdlife, flora, geothermal activity, geology and saga. The Lake Mývatn area is by many considered the most beautiful and at the
same time the most catastrophic place in Iceland.
We begin our day by stopping at Goðafoss waterfall on our way to Lake Mývatn. Goðafoss plays an important role in the Icelandic history, particularly in connection with the introduction of Christianity. We keep on going to the pseudo-craters of Skútustaðagígar before we continue to the mystic Dimmuborgir (Dark Cities), the warm underground river in Grjótagjá rift and head to the geothermal area of Hverir with boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and sulphur pits. We then come to the explosion crater Víti that was formed in 1724 in the Mývatnseldar eruption and from there we will enjoy the view over Leirhnjúkur volcano. By the end of the tour we visit Sigurgeir´s Bird Museum.
