Embark on a scenic drive through colourful streets as you head to Akureyri Botanical Gardens. Take in the fresh Icelandic air as you stroll among the stunning plants, representing every indigenous species recorded, together with many examples of high altitude and latitude flora from around the world.

Immerse yourself in Nonni’s Museum, which is dedicated to the writer and Jesuit priest Jón Sveinsson, also known as Nonni. He went abroad at twelve years old and was educated in France. He delivered almost five thousand lectures around the world and wrote twelve popular children’s books called Nonni’s books, before taking a trip to Santa’s House. This charming festive shop is open all year round and might just tempt you to indulge in a little souvenir shopping. A unique place that the whole family enjoys visiting.
