Beautiful botanical gardens; the Godafoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’; and the Mývatn Lake are all within easy reach of this picturesque town, from where you can also embark on once-in-a-lifetime whale watching excursions. Have your binoculars to hand as you glide along Eyjafjörður – Iceland’s longest fjord – and past Hrisey Island, which is home to 40 bird species; and be sure to take your place on deck to see wonders such as the snow-capped Dalatangi, Akurfell and Tóarfjall Mountains and the rugged landscapes of Gerpir as you cruise by en route to Eskifjörður.
