The Jewels of the North is an excellent tour to take. Drive along the coast of Iceland's longest fjord, Eyafjordur and the Fnjoskadalur Valley - very scenic. Stop at Godafoss Waterfall. Continue to Lake Myvatn area and see the craters. Visit Dimmuborgir lava castles and natural arches. Amazing

We did no excursions here and were very happy with that choice. the city has a free bus and one of the routes takes you all around so you can see everything. we then walked along the harbour to the old town, which was lovely. They have done a fantastic job on the waterfront, and it's easy to tour by yourself. We had lunch at the Blaa Kanan cafe - which was good and typically expensive. The port souvenir shop has the best deals

This was a wonderful stop. I chose the HAL excursion, Jewels of the North. The tour lasted a full 6 1/2 hrs. We drove along the coast of Eyjafjorour, the longest fjord in Iceland and through the picturesque Fnjoskadalur Valley. Then we drove to the Lake Myvatn area and stopped at the Skutustadir Craters. After a lunch stop, we visited the Dimmuborgir Lava Labyrinth. Finally, we stopped at the geothermal field of Namaskard. On our way back to the ship, we drove though the town of Akureyri. It was a long but exciting tour.

We just walked ashore, which in nice weather would be lovely, however we got wet - and as it was a sunday, not a lot open, but we did find a couple of places to find something to take away with us.
