Whether you're in a built-up city or a sleepy town, travel is what you make of it. So, it's worth doing a little research on Ljosavatn in order to get the most out of your time there.

Ljosavatn Vacation Packages

Ljosavatn is located approximately 160 miles northeast of Reykjavik, the national capital.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, visit some of the Ljosavatn region's nature areas. Leirhnjukur is 25 miles away from Ljosavatn, while Namafjall lies 25 miles away.

Take on the ski trails or play in the snow at Hlidarfjall. It's the place to be when the temperature drops.

Jon Sveinsson Museum and Akureyri Church are in Svalbarðseyri, a close by destination 10 miles away. Why don't you go check them out? Akureyri Botanical Garden and University of Akureyri are more places. These are about 11 miles out of Ljosavatn, in Akureyri.

Don't forget to experience Myvatn. It's about 20 miles to the east of Ljosavatn and it boasts some fantastic visitor attractions, such as Myvatn Nature Baths, Dimmuborgir and Hverarondor Hverir. If you have time for more, some other great places are Grotagja Cave and Lake Myvatn.

In order to truly understand the character of Northern Iceland, you're going to have to accustom yourself with its signature scents and tastes.

A delectable meal relies upon the quality of its ingredients. Luckily, the lamb and root vegetables are amongst the world's best.

Don't head home before trying saltfiskur (dried and salted fish) and harofiskur (jerky type fish).

For a sweet encounter that will leave your mouth watering, try mondlukaka (almond cake), a delectable dessert.

Enjoy the festivities for Independence Day, a nation-wide day of festivities that takes place each year on the 17th of June.

After taking in the stunning beauty of Northern Iceland, it will be tough to leave. But alas, all vacations must eventually end.

When you're ready to catch your flight, it's good to remember that the most convenient airport is roughly 11 miles southwest.
