A Day in Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri, capital city of the north of Iceland, is charming and fun. The botanical garden is the most colorful we've ever seen! The sculptures by an Icelandic artist, of scraps of wood, are all over town and are unique and great fun!

Akureyri, Iceland

Recorded September 5, 2008. Akureyri is a town in the northern part of Iceland. It is the second largest urban area after the Greater Reykjavík area. The town has a total population of 17,304. Akureyri is positioned on the west side of the inland end of the fjord Eyjafjörður. It is surrounded by mountains, the highest being Súlur at 3980 feet and Hlíðarfjall at 3661 feet. This video begins as we sail into Akureyri on the Sea Princess. Next we get a nice view of a northern bottlenose whale playing with her calf in the harbour. That is followed by a walk through the downtown area. The video concludes back on board the Sea Princess as we sail away from Akureyri. From:

Downtown Akureyri - North Iceland

Walking downtown Akureyri and the waterfront in the North of Iceland. Akureyri (pronounced ‘ah-koo-rare-ee’) is Iceland’s second biggest city but has a population of only 18,000. It sits at the end of the Eyjafjörður fjord and is a popular day stop for cruise ships, there was a different ship there every day. Although, as they were not massive ships, they didn’t overwhelm the small town. The Akureyrarkirkja (Church of Akureyri) sits on a hill above the town and has great views over the town. The church was designed by Guðjón Samúelsson, the same man who designed the Hallgrímskirkja, the landmark church in Reykjavik. Akureyri is about a 6-hour drive from Reykjavik but you can fly there with Air Iceland.
