The less-crowded landscapes of Iceland's Northeast Region attract visitors to its virtually untouched wilderness of this province. While many tourists have yet to discover the region, those that do come seeking recreation and leisure activities will find pleasure in experiencing the area's rocky sites, blue lakes, high peaks, green valleys, and geothermal features. This region, nearing the Arctic Circle, is also rich in waterfalls. The unofficial capital of the province and its largest town, Akureyri, provides a hub for outdoor adventure, including hiking, rafting, whale watching, and horseback riding. Northeast Region is in Iceland. Plan the details of your Northeast Region holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Iceland trip planner.
