Dear guests, in all Iceland Guesthouses we are complying with the latest Covid-19 safety guidelines, issued by the Icelandic Tourist Board!

Iceland’s second largest town, Akureyri is considered by many to be the capital of the country’s North. Some 18,000 people live here, so by most European standards it is hardly a city and more of a town, but it has some exciting sightseeing options and beautiful natural surroundings.

In the last few years, Iceland has jumped straight to the number one country on almost everyone’s bucket list. With its insane landscapes, friendly locals and incredible natural phenomenons (did someone say hot springs?), it’s no wonder we’re all jumping on the plane to Reykjavik. Time and time again though I hear the same criticism of this beautiful country: it’s just too damn expensive. Well…  yes, you will be paying a little more for your fermented shark (Iceland’s National dish) than your typical food in somewhere like South East Asia or Eastern Europe, but don’t let that stop you! If you’re looking to travel this amazing country without the expensive price tag, then we’ve got you covered! There are plenty of amazing experiences to be had in Iceland on a budget – even some that won’t even cost you one Icelandic Krona.

There is a commonly spoken phrase in Iceland which goes, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes.” Well, as funny as that sounds, you shouldn’t take it too seriously. Icelandic weather is truly quite temperamental. Sometimes it’s just constantly bad for days in a row. It’s with full acknowledgement of this fact that we present our guide to surviving several days of bad Icelandic weather.
