About Akureyri

Akureyri, known as the Northern Capital of Iceland, is a charming port town surrounded by the striking landscape of the Eyjafjörður fjord. Easily reached by a 40-minute flight from Reykjavik, this destination offers both tranquility and adventure. Akureyri has many highlights and cultural landmarks, including most northernmost botanical gardens in the world. The town is also perfect for skiing, whale watching, and explorations of nearby natural attractions such as Myvatn Lake, Godafoss Waterfall, and Dettifoss Waterfall, Europe’s most powerful waterfall. The town’s geothermal swimming pool is perfect for those seeking relaxation after a day filled with activities, offering warm waters, hot tubs, and a steam bath. In the winter season, Akureyri becomes a playground for winter sports, with chances to indulge in activities such as snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and dog sledding. And, if fortune favors, one may also witness the celestial dance of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, adding yet another magical experience to this already enchanting town. The town’s culinary scene boasts fresh Arctic seafood and traditional Icelandic dishes, supported by a strong coffee culture.
