Good to know

Please consider that even though the tour has no age limit, it is approximately 15 hours long which might not suit the stamina of very young children. We recommend bringing snacks or packed lunch for the journey, as well as bottled water, but we will also stop at a café in Húsavík before heading back to Akureyri at the end of the tour.
