Often referred to as Iceland's second city, Akureyri offers an array of cultural attractions in a scenic setting.
You've added Wide Open, Thermal bath Hofsos, Iceland, The Akureyri Food Walk, and other attractions to your itinerary. Get some cultural insight at Víðimýrarkirkja and Puffin and Friends. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Holar Cathedral and Saurbaejarkirkja. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Akureyri: Jokulsargljufur National Park (in Asbyrgi), Grjotagja Cave (in Reykjahlid) and Varmahlid (Glaumbaer Museum & Lytingsstadir Riding Tours). There's still lots to do: ski along the peaceful trails at Hlíðarfjall, get outside with Hofdi, take in the dramatic natural features at Leirhnjukur, and step off the mainland to explore Knarrarberg - Yoga & Spa.
