Shore Excursions

Travel with me hipster style on my mythical full day trip from Akureyri to the island of Hrísey. Easily reached by way of a 90 minute (each way) self-drive and a short ferry ride. Enjoy a perfect day on this tiny Icelandic island retreat. Indulge in a spot of bird watching, hike to the lighthouse for a picnic and finish off with an al fresco dip in the local geothermal pool.
