During summer months (May-October) you can take a closer look at floating icebergs during an Amphibian boat tour, while during winter (November-March) you can jump in a superjeep on the journey to discover natural a Blue Ice Cave. The nearby Diamond Beach is a must-see-place while visiting this beautiful country – no matter the season the view over the satin black sand beach decorated by melting ice chunks looks equally stunning. On this day you will also visit the Vestrahorn Mountain, the Lagarfljot Lake inhabited by the Icelandic version of Loch Ness monster and Studlagil Canyon just to name a few attractions.

The day ends in Akureyri – the capital of Northern Iceland.

You will start Day 4 by kicking off from Akureyri heading north to the village called Dalvik, where you can embark on a boat searching for whales in the beautiful Eyjafjordur. This area is known for its unusually high presence of many representatives of whales, unlike in many other parts of Iceland. In Hvammstangi there is even more wildlife waiting for you.
