What's happening

This one's for you


The church steps

We do much appreciate the work of our gardening-team which is working hard in tidying and planting flowers around in town.

Harlequin ducks

The harlequin duck (Histrionicus histrionicus) takes its name from a colourfully dressed character in Commedia dell'arte.

Spring cleaning

Great weather (+18°C) to clean the duck-pond and the surrounding area and to make the flowerbeds ready for the summer flowers.

Welcome to the Pool

Akureyri Geothermal Pool will re-open next Monday (18th May), but it has been closed since 24th March due to COVID-19.

How to get here

  • The flight from Reykjavík to Akureyri takes about 40 minutes and 4-5 hours to drive. The city busses are free of charge and we have no parking meters, just remember to get a parking-clock, available at the tourist information in HOF, at banks, some shops and gasoline stations.
