Fiske celebration

The 11th of November was celebrated as usual on the island Grímsey, Iceland's northernmost part, by the Arctic Circle.

The first Day of Winter

In former days Iceland had a calendar that had its roots in the old Norse Calendar, which only had two seasons, “winter” and “summer.”

School holidays

Most schools in Iceland have a autumn break after mid October

Whale watching

Plenty of humpback whales in the fjord

How to get here

  • The flight from Reykjavík to Akureyri takes about 40 minutes and 4-5 hours to drive. The city busses are free of charge and we have no parking meters, just remember to get a parking-clock, available at the tourist information in HOF, at banks, some shops and gasoline stations.
