Akureyri

Capital of North Iceland

Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Akureyri: Varmahlid (Víðimýrarkirkja & Glaumbaer Museum) and Puffin and Friends (in Saudarkrokur). There's still lots to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, get a new perspective on nature at Nordurslod - Into the Arctic, admire the sheer force of Goðafoss Waterfall, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Akureyrarkirkja.

Plan my trip to Akureyri with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
