Akureyri, nicknamed the ‘Capital of North Iceland’, is a small but energetic city brimming with vibrant galleries, museums and cultural activities! Situated at the base of the magnificent Eyjafjörður (Island Fjord) at the end of the Arctic Circle, it is a gateway to many of North Iceland’s beautiful attractions including the Myvatn region, the Dettifoss and Godafoss waterfalls, and the Asbyrgi Canyon. The city comes alive in summer with people lounging in the charming outdoor cafes while eating ice cream and attending the various evening concerts and festivals. In winter, it transforms into a ski paradise where you can treat yourself to a long soak in the city’s geothermal swimming pool which is an integral part of the typical Icelandic experience. World-class restaurants and lively bars add to the bustling nightlife. The seas surrounding Akureyri are a whale watcher’s paradise as they teem with delightful sea creatures such as whales, dolphins and porpoises, while golf lovers can enjoy themselves at Jadarvollur, the world’s northernmost 18-hole golf course.
