Our travel agency is located in the fjord called Eyjafjördur close to Akureyri and in the region of Myvatn, both in north Iceland, were we live all year round. We organize many trips around lake Myvatn and in Eyjafjördur because this region offers a large range of things to discover while remaining on a scale of short travels, but we also offer trips in the whole country.
