Although Akureyri is relatively small (although not by Icelandic standards), the nickname "the pearl of the north" is well earned as this quaint town has a lot to offer. Its cozy urban center, made up of small buildings with brightly colored facades; the modern and striking Akureyrarkirkja Church; or the incredible botanical garden, which has all the Icelandic plants and almost 7000 foreign ones, are just some of the jewels of Akureyri.

Mountain lovers can also do many trekkings on the outskirts of the city and those who come by car can stop at some of the nearby points of the main road, such as Vaolaheioi Utsynispallur, from where they can be taken the best photos of Akureyri and the Eyjafjördur fjord. Simply wonderfully, stunning views.

Akureyri also has the necessary infrastructures to become the central point of your visit to the north of Iceland. Take your time and book a whale watching tour in Akureyri.
