Iceland

The North of Iceland is dotted with fjords and bays, every one a little different and each with their own special atmosphere.  In the northwest there is Hunafloi bay, the largest in the region, and the seal hotspot of Iceland. Next there is Skagafjordur, Iceland's horse capital. Few places beat Skagafjordur at the height of the summer, when the midnight sun sits on the horizon to the north.

Eyjafjordur, in the centre, is home to more than half the population in the region, thanks to Akureyri; a charming university town, with museums, restaurants and ski runs, it's the hub of the region.  At the mouth of the fjord is the town of Siglufjordur, the alluring former herring capital of the world.

East of Eyjafjordur is Skjalfandi bay and Husavik, the whale watching capital of Iceland.  Further east is Oxarfjordur fjord, a sheep-farming region with countless wonders of nature, like Dettifoss, Europe's most powerful waterfall.

Travelling inland from Akureyri towards Lake Myvatn is the beautiful waterfall of Godafoss.

Lake Myvatn is Iceland in a nutshell: volcanoes, bubbling earth and unique birdlife make the area one of the most geologically fascinating regions to visit.
