For a city of 18,000 residents, Akureyri packs a lively punch.

Around the corner, you'll find Akureyri's basalt church, Akureyrarkirkja, with its striking, futuristic facade. Iceland cruises give you access to stroll through Lystigardurinn, the northernmost botanical garden in the world, and breathe in the fresh air and the scent of wild arctic flowers.

Insider tip
Several cafes and museums offer free Wi-Fi.
