We have been to the other end of Iceland a couple of times and love the country. We would love to visit again but feel a trip to the other parts might be good. Is there a best time to visit? What could we expect to see? Thanks.
There's a UK company called SuperBreak that's doing what the Icelandic tourist industry should have thought about quite a while ago.
For their brilliant approach, and because I know that they're reliable (we've heard from them in the news last year), I am going to recommend them. And that's a brick & mortar agency, the classic fashion, NOT one of those crazy marketplaces online.
Just see if they have some dates that are suitable for you, so you can go and explore North Iceland as well.Edited: 23 September 2018, 19:55
There's a lot of gorgeous stuff in northern Iceland. I'd start by checking out the Tröllaskagi peninsula (don't miss the Hofsos pool!). Perhaps a day trip or even overnight to Grimsey Island where the Arctic Circle passes through! Then there's the Myvatn area which has lots to see. Could fill up a whole week or more with those places!
We found Akureyri to be a really nice town. We didn't have an overnight there and would have enjoyed one. There's a very pretty harbor and the downtown is nice to walk around. Make sure to stay a night or two in the Myvatn area (very near Akureyri) - there's a ton to do although it was more crowded than most of the areas we visited. The Myvatn nature baths are not to be missed - absolutely one of my best travel experiences ever. There are some really nice geothermal areas to roam around and Dimmuborgir is well, well worth a visit.
If you are planning to visit the Myvatn area, I would recommend September. The midges in the summer can be unbearable.
