Suggestions for shore day

Hi,

We'll be in Akureyri on 31'th July, in a shore day from a cruise.

We are family with two kids (9 and 11), and I would like to ask for some suggestions to make most of this day.

Thanks everybody

If I had day near Akureyri, I would head for Myvatn. It is amazing!

Thanks, I heard that it and Goddafloss are great.

But we are staying only about 6 hours.

What are the easiest options to go there? Public transportation, renting a car? How long it takes to drive there?

Thanks

Yes, it is on the way to Myvatn. I would rent car if you have so short time. It is about 100 km distance.

For the car rental you can find the ones available in Akureyri here:

You should hire a private guide, there are several options like Nonni travel and Saga travel.

The drive to Myvatn and back is 2 hours, so you could have 4 hours off the car.

Go for the beauty of Myvatn, try the Nature bath and see Goðafoss.
