The Capital of North Iceland

Akureyri is considered a city, in fact Iceland’s second largest, even though its total population is only about 18,000.

Set on the shores of one of Iceland’s most spectacular fjords, with a backdrop of countryside earth tones and greens and perennially snow-capped mountains, it is quite a sight to behold.

Weather patterns here are a bit of a puzzle - only 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, summer temperatures can soar as high as 60°F. No surprise then that a main attraction is the Botanical Gardens, where over 2,000 species of native and non-native plants flourish without benefit of a greenhouse.
