In Akureyri we have many guests from abroad for Christmas and New Year´s Eve. Here is a warm holiday greeting to you from the Mayor of Akureyri.

Dear guests,

We all know the phrase „It‘s the journey, not the destination“ but if the destination is Akureyri then I surely hope you have enjoyed the journey but know in my heart you will enjoy the destination more.

These days we have a lot of snow in town, maybe more then I have ever seen as I was raised in West Iceland. The ski resort in Mt. Hlíðarfjall was opened a few days back and I look forward to going there with my family.

I welcome you to our beautiful town and hope you will enjoy your stay. Please remember to check out the web safetravel.is before you leave town and while you are here remember to take a look at our web page on opening hours of all kinds of service in Akureyri during the holidays.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Ásthildur Sturludóttir,
Mayor of Akureyri
