Akureyri: Goðafoss, Laufas & The Christmas House Tour

Embark on an enchanting journey through the mesmerizing landscapes and rich history of Iceland. Throughout the tour, knowledgeable guides will regale you with stories of Icelanders, their heritage, humor, and local traditions, making it an ideal adventure for families and anyone seeking a memorable exploration of Iceland's hidden gems. Commence your journey with a visit to the picturesque Goðafoss waterfall, where your knowledgeable guide will provide insights into Icelanders, their heritage, humor, and the local area, addressing any queries you may have. After exploring the waterfall, we head to the historic Old Turf house Laufas and then proceed to the Magical House of Christmas, making it a great tour for families. Goðafoss, located in the glacial river Skjálfandafljót, holds great significance in Icelandic history. Legend has it that a local chieftain named Þorgeir threw statues of pagan gods into the waterfall after the nation adopted Christianity. Hence, the name Goðafoss means "waterfall of the gods." Nestled by the estuary of the river Fnjóská in Eyjafjörður, Laufás exemplifies a wealthy vicarage from earlier times. The old turf-clad timber building dates back to the Middle Ages, while the current structure was erected between 1860 and 1877. As you explore the various rooms and passages, you'll find artifacts from the Laufás house and neighboring farms, offering insights into how Icelanders lived until the early 20th century. The church at Laufás features a pulpit from 1698 and is a humble yet beautiful representation of traditional Icelandic churches. The Christmas House, a year-round attraction, resembles a scene from a fairy tale book, enchanting visitors with its magical garden. Inside, you'll be welcomed by a log fire and the festive songs and scents, even during the summer months. Be sure to seek out the hidden Icelandic Yule lad's troll mother (Gryla) in her cave. The Christmas House and its shop brim with holiday magic, creating a delightful experience for all visitors. Upon returning to town, a short sightseeing tour of Akureyri awaits, completing this captivating excursion.

What people are saying about Akureyri International Airport

The sites of Iceland were breathtaking. The waterfall was stunning, learned a lot and the heritage housing and church site. Christmas house was disappointing…super cute items but wayyyyyyy overpriced. Santa would be displeased to learn that they were trying to profit of of him in this manner. They would have sold much more if the prices were more reasonable. Our guide and driver Jon was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, kind, patient, helpful and very funny. Recommend highly but keep expectations in check for Christmas House.

The tour was excellent. What made it exceptional was our driver and guide Jon. He gave such informative and entertaining dialog on the history and folklore of the area being covered. The places we stopped at were beautiful however without even getting out of the bus he made the tour exceptional. He was also a very good driver.

we got to see what we wanted to see and it was roughly half the price of a similar tour offered by our cruise. the tour guide was excellent. The only issue was a blip with the microphone/sound system, however the tour guide corrected that.

Inga is a very empathetic person, she told anecdotes, life stories and history of her country. Beautiful excursion, without rushing and with plenty of time available at each stop. Enchanting places and professionalism of your operator.

Jon was great so funny and informative during our tour couldn’t recommend this tour enough. Saved 100’s on doing it this way and not through the cruise ship
