Akureyri Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
This is a thing that is very special and doesn't happen very often. But it happens when fogg gets frozen and can hold up to 3-5 days. This happened the last time 16.-18. december 2005 and it is realley amazing. The photo is taken on the corner of Ægis´street and Fieldroad (transelated from Icelandic) and that is in the harbour neighbourhood.
Sights include the folklore museum and the botanical gardens. A trip to nearby Lake Myvatn should also be on your list.
Referred to by Icelanders as the Capital of the North, Akureyri has a surprisingly active cultural life for such a small town. A number of art galleries operate year round, and a professional theater company operates during the winter. There is plenty of nightlife, with places such as the relatively large dance hall Sjallinn, where Icelandic bands play most weekends, Kaffi Akureyri which is a bar with a 25-35 year old crowd and a dance floor, and quiet coffee houses Kaffi Bar, Kaffi Karólína and Bláa Kannan.
