The Husavik Whale Museum Husavik
#1 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Northeast Region
Amazing site to them in the wild and up close in the museum display.
In regards to negative comments about their views on whaling, I did not find this to be true.
Viti Crater Lake Myvatn
#2 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Northeast Region
With the surrounding vermillion colored rocks and perfect cone shaped volcano, it's a beautiful site to see.
Well worth driving out of town and into the mountains just for the view of the lava fields and crater itself.
3 Ways to experience it
Akureyrarkirkja Akureyri
#3 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Northeast Region
The church is beautiful and the view over Akureyri and Eyafjordur from the church is amazing.
The views alone are worth the 100 step climb to the top where you'll see right over the town and the beautiful fjord.
Husavikurkirkja Husavik
#4 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Northeast Region
You have a beautiful view from the inside balkony ( if that is the correct term for it).
You can go up to 1st floor for a nice view on the interior.

Historical Site, Worth the Detour
Vaolaheioi Utsynispallur Akureyri
#7 of 14 Sights & Landmarks in Northeast Region
To stop there, preferably early on a sunny day, gives you a bird's eye view across the fjord overlooking Akureyri.
Driving east out of Akureyri,there are some superb views along this stretch of the '1' with plenty of places to pull the car over and absorb.

It is a 40 minute walk over a very easy terrain, but the views at the northern most part of the island are like non other.
