Travel across the fjord, along the slopes of Vadlaheidi Mountain, through the Fnjoskadalur Valley and alongside Vaglaskogur Forest – one of Iceland's rare woodlands. At Goðafoss, a stunning 12-metre-high waterfall, witness the power of nature in the cascading river. Gentler sights await at the Laufás Folk Museum. Housed in a traditional 19th-century farmhouse of stone and turf, the museum showcases a selection of household and agricultural implements once used. Take a break in the peaceful surrounds of the Akureyri Botanical Garden and enjoy a riot of colour and scent strolling amid the native and foreign flora.
