ShoreTrips says...

Akureyri is a picturesque town with its location by a scenic fjord, eclectic building styles and streets winding their way through gorges. And by Icelandic standards, Akureyri is judged quite lovely. But tourists to Iceland typically come for the splendid scenery, not for cities. Akureyri is primarily a hub to start excursions to more interesting places and there are many in the area.

Climb into your luxury SUV to begin this fun, fabulous tour. We'll drive along the Eyjafjörður coastline, boasting breathtaking views and seaside surroundings.

Next stop is the old herring factory in Hjalteyri where you'll hear about this small fish's big impact on the economy and the town during its heyday.

It's time to get out, stretch your legs and breathe in the fresh ocean air along the black sand beach and old-style harbor in Dalvik Village.

You might not expect to stop at a filming location for an Icelandic TV drama, but then again, you didn't come to Iceland to do the same old thing. We'll visit the village of Siglujörður, where the very popular crime series "Trapped" is set and hear a bit more about the herring years in the country.

The next stop is the Kaldi Brewery, one of Iceland's most celebrated micro-breweries. You'll enjoy a fully guided brewery tour, by a personable and energetic staff who are proud of their product.

Then, the moment you've been waiting for...to the beer bath! You'll soak, revel, relax and smile as you slide into the big tub filled with beer, yeast, water and hops. You don't want to drink the beer in the tub, but rest assured you will not go thirsty as you will be provided with samples of the fine brews produced by Kaldi, along with descriptions of each. After 25 minutes of soaking in sudsy goodness, we suggest a stop at the outdoor hot tub to relax and take in the stunning views.

Once you've been transformed by your beer bath experience, lunch is in order. The restaurant, located right on the brewery property offers a choice of a beer (of course) burger or fish of the day.

A short drive away is Akureyri, where you will have free time to explore the street life before ending your day.

As we make our way through some of the small communities in this region such as Árskógssandur, practice saying the names of the villages, a challenge that could be quite fun, especially after a few beers!
