After an early breakfast, board the bus for a scenic drive up along the west coast of Iceland. Along the way, the guide will tell you about Iceland. In the afternoon, you will reach Akureyri, known as "The Capital of the North," which lies just 100 km (62 miles) away from the Arctic Circle.

After the briefing, continue to Mývatn/Húsavík, where you will get settled into your hotel.
