PAST AND PRESENT

In Akureyri, there is plenty of history to explore. You will discover many interesting things strolling at a leisurely pace around town as we weave our way between the past and the present. We begin by showing you what the town centre has to offer before making our way up the hill (50 m elevation) and telling you the story of Akureyri. The walk takes us to the Botanical Garden and after that we will visit a home where you will experience Icelandic culture and hospitality. This walk is 2 km long and with the visit it takes approximately 2-3 hours.

HISTORY LANE

We will walk through the town centre on our way to the oldest part of Akureyri. This is a peaceful and attractive part of town, rich with houses from the middle of the 19th century, each with its own history. In the early days of Akureyri this was the town's centre. We walk through the quiet streets, tell you stories, have a look at lovely gardens and pass by museums. At the end of the walk, we visit a home where you will experience Icelandic culture and hospitality. This walk is 3 km long and with the visit it takes approximately 2-3 hours. This is a level ground walk without any hills.

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.
