Northern European Itineraries
Snow lingers year-round on the glacier-smoothed mountains flanking the fjord’s calm waters. This small town at the mountain’s base is a cultural and government center, with several worthwhile museums, art galleries, and the homes of several literary and artistic notables. The lovely botanical gardens benefit from the town’s sheltered location, displaying 7,000 native and non-native plants. Rural culture can be sampled on out-of-town visits to Gásir medival trading post, Láufas rectory and farmstead, and the fishing villages on Hrísey and Grimsby islands. Vikurskarð Pass is gateway to natural wonders that include thundering Godafoss waterfall and the Lake Myvatn area’s geothermal baths, steaming mudpots, and volcanic craters. The lake is also renowned for its migratory duck population. Húsavik, north of the lake, is a popular whale watching port.
Akureyri’s history is not one for the Norse sagas. Though visited since the 9th Century, a 1562 adultery trial is the seasonal trading post’s oldest recorded event. Year-round settlement began in 1778, part of Danish Royal efforts to raise the island’s living standards. 12 residents hardly makes a city, so the town’s charter was temporarily revoked 50 years later. Excellent conditions for farming, and herring that could be netted from the shore spurred the town’s growth, and it is now one of the nation’s top fish processing centers.
