The fire glows and crackles in the fireplace. Christmas melodies and aroma in the air. Only ten minutes drive from the center of the town of Akureyri, in the Jólagarðurinn or Christmas garden you'll find the magical world of Christmas. On the outside the fire-engine red house resembles a cookie house but once inside you discover Christmas decorations from all over the world, alongside with traditional Icelandic Christmas items and variations of selected handicrafts from local craftsmen/women.
There is no bus that goes to the Christmas Garden. Best way to get there is by own car or hire a taxi.
In the beautiful garden surrounding the house are benches and tables provided, making this an excellent spot for a picnic. The fairytale tower houses the worlds biggest Christmas calendar worth climbing the stairs for.
In the garden one can also find The Whishing well of unborn children, a place of tranquility and peace.
