There you will find fashion stores, a large grocery store, a pharmacy and much more. If you are looking to shop for something more unique, Háaloftið, or The Attic, is an antique store you should look into. You can most definitely lose track of time looking through this charming store. You can also check out some of the museums, take a walk around the old town or pay a visit to the swimming pool.
For dinner, Akureyri has some great restaurants and one that we recommend is La Vita E Bella. It is located downtown, next to Bautinn. As the name suggests, it’s a restaurant that specialises in Italian cuisine, and they are pretty good at it, to say the least. A creamy pasta or a crusty pizza never seem to disappoint.
