Iceland is a land of glaciers and lava deserts inland, with towns and villages scattered along the coast. National Route 1, also known as the Ring Road, circles Iceland, connecting these coastal towns. The scenic beauty of the road and the many tourist attractions that represent Iceland make it the perfect road trip.
Nestled at the far end of the Eyjafjörður, Akureyri is Iceland's second largest city, and is the economic and transportation center of the region. However, the small town with a population of 20,000 has a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. While staying here, you can enjoy a fulfilling trip to the surrounding tourist spots such as Lake Mývatn and the Ásbyrgi canyon, or participate in whale watching.
