This Week’s Best Places for Autumn Colors

This week promises perfect weather for observing fall colors in North and East Iceland, while it will be rainy in the southern part of the country.

The best places to enjoy the colors will be Vaglaskógur forest in Fnjóskadalur, just east of Akureyri ; by Lake Mývatn; Ásbyrgi in Öxarfjörður fjord, which is part of Vatnajökull National Park.

In the east, the best spot to enjoy the colors is Hallormsstaðarskógur, Iceland’s largest forest, half-an-hour’s drive south from Egilsstaðir.
