Being a relatively young island, only 15-18 million years old(!), Iceland's geological activity is one-of-a-kind. The abundance of volcanoes, geysers and natural hot springs provide enough geothermal energy to heat approximately 85% of Iceland's population. When traveling to Iceland, one not only experiences the breathtaking landscapes but also the unique culture of Icelanders, known for their strong family ties, their bond with nature, their fascination with music and the art of storytelling.

While there aren't many cities in Iceland, there is certainly a lot to do! Find out more about Reykjavík, Akureyri and the fun activities all over the island.

Reykjavík

Reykjavík

Reykjavík, which loosely translates to "Smoke Cove," is said to have gotten its name from the hot springs that produce steam in the area. Iceland's capital city boasts a strong Viking culture and tradition and is located directly on Faxaflói Bay, perfect for cruising. Reykjavík can easily be explored in a day, but the real adventure begins on your day excursions outside of the city!

Akureyri

Akureyri

North of Reykjavík, Akureyri is the second largest settlement in all of Iceland. Folk culture and area festivals set this city apart from the rest. Just a quick drive away, you can see some of Iceland's most breathtaking geological structures such as Lake Mývatn, the famous mud pots and Goðafoss waterfall, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the country.
