Akureyri, Iceland

 

 

The port of Akureyri is deep inside a fjord, so we were treated to spectacular views of the city and surrounding mountains as we arrived and departed. Some of the highlights of our stay included Lake Myvatn, famous in ecology for the dynamics of the population of midges it supports; the Godafoss waterfall known as the waterfall of the gods, and one more set of hot springs, this one featuring pools of boiling mineral-rich mud.
