AK Extreme

AK Extreme is a four day festival with events scheduled at Mt. Hlíðarfjall and in downtown Akureyri.

For the main event, we construct a terrifying Big Jump set up.

This winter, alongside the traditional BURN Jib Session in downtown Akureyri, WE HAVE THE ORIGO Downhill Competition at Mt. Hlíðarfjall ON THURSDAY.

Last year’s edition saw over 7000+ spectators turn out to enjoy the sketchy huck-fest that is the Eimskip Big Jump competition in the center of Akureyri.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
