Glerá River

Glerá River runs through the town of Akureyri, mostly through a steep canyon. The river is flanked by walking trails for a taste of urban nature. The river originates from glaciers in the mountains of Tröllaskagi peninsula but also draws water from some fresh water springs on its way down the Glerá Valley. At the point where the river reaches the sea at the fjord Eyjafjörður it has formed the sandbank named “Oddeyri” - housing one of the town’s oldest districts.
