Akureyri

Akureyri is the 'Capital of the North' and a vibrant place with a warmer climate due to geographical factors.  This important port and fisheries centre can be explored easily on foot. Akureyri has a wealth of supermarkets and several pubs and discos can be found in Akureyri, although the nocturnal nightlife is not as lively as Reykjavik you can still have a good night out. 

At first sight, Iceland’s second largest city appears like it was transplanted from the Swiss Alps. It sits on the southwestern shores of the North Coast’s Eyjafjordur Fjord, one of the most breathtaking fjords in all of Iceland. Rising up immediately behind the city are azure farmlands that slope gently up to basalt mountains. The mountains are capped by snow year round, and in the winter they offer great skiing.

One of the most extraordinary aspects of Akureyri is its warm climate. Although its sits only 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, it has some of the best weather in Iceland. Summer temperatures frequently range in the high 60's (20°C).
