The show arctic handcraft and design Iceland is one of a kind. About 100 individuals are selected to sell their exclusive handcraft, art and design that often is based on the old Icelandic traditions. Some of the favourite materials used are the well known lava from Eyjafjallajökull, the legendary Icelandic wool, the delicate skin of lamb and reindeer not forgetting the luxurious fish leather. On the outside area the new harvest is sold together with jams, juices and other delicates made from some of the best organic Icelandic ingredients, not forgetting the famous dried fish. The middle age camp is full of life and brings you back in time. Spend the afternoon exploring the core of the Icelandic culture in the great environment of Hrafnagilshverfi, just 10 km. south of Akureyri, surrounded by the peaceful mountains of Eyjafjörður.

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.
