For an escape that’s as quirky as the locals’ legends, head to Akureyri – a charming city in the heart of Iceland. This is a place where kook is given free reign. You’ll find heart-shaped traffic lights, small sculptured trolls dotting the neighbourhoods and churches dressed in wood. There’s also a lively cultural and social scene with a renowned theatre, a scattering of dance bars and a handful of
traditional restaurants dishing up exceptional plates. And don't forget about the weathered fjord islands bordering the town's centre, perfect for a dollop of nature and blast of fresh air. Captivating at any time of year, Akureyri holidays can be enjoyed during balmy summers, when gorgeous green gardens flower and snow-dusted winters, where thrill-seekers whizz around the plains to experience life close to the Arctic Circle.
