Beyond Reykjavik:  The Northern Exposure City Break


Icelandair Holidays offers Iceland City Break featuring visit to magical North Iceland

On a visit to Iceland, it’s easy to stay in Reykjavik and enjoy the surrounding countryside with all of its beauty and easy accessibility.  But there is a wonderful place that many visitors miss out on... gorgeous North Iceland.  To introduce UK travellers to this less touristy part of Iceland that’s full of breathtaking fjords, quaint fishing villages and the otherworldly Lake Myvatn region, Icelandair Holidays is pleased to introduce the Northern Exposure City Break from £499*.


The Northern Exposure City Break package starts with return flights from London Heathrow, Manchester or Glasgow to Reykjavik to Iceland, four nights accommodation at the four-star Hotel Loftleidir including Scandinavian breakfast buffet.  Travellers can then choose one day to travel on a full day tour to North Iceland including domestic flights on Air Iceland. 


After an exciting flight with breathtaking views on a clear day, guests arrive in Akureyri and are taken to the twin waterfall Godafoss, named after the pagan idols thrown into it a thousand years ago. Europe's largest bird sanctuary is next where species breed among the mystical blend of lush vegetation and lava spires. After a short break, the tour heads to the colourful majesty of the still-active Krafla volcano, and from there to sizzling Hverarönd, famous for its bubbling sulfur mud pots.


A walking tour of Dimmuborgir is next, a surreal lava park with unique rock formations towering above and delicate flowers dotting the ground below. After a brief stop in the village Reykjahlíð, the tour returns to Akureyri to catch the evening flight back to Reykjavik. Passengers will also visit Mývatn Nature Baths and have the option to enjoy a swim in the lagoon. 


To top off a fantastic trip, this City Break also includes entrance to the Laugardalslaug geothermal pools in Reykjavik where travellers can rest before their return to the UK.
Icelandair is one of Iceland’s longest established companies, connecting the world and Iceland for over 70 years. 

The Northern Exposure City Break starts at £499*. This Icelandair Holidays offer is valid for booking online at www.icelandair.co.uk until 31st March.
