We will begin by showing you what the town centre has to offer before making our way up the hill (50 m elevation) and telling you the story of Akureyri. In Akureyri, there is plenty of history to explore. The walk takes us to the Botanical Garden (Lystigarðurinn) where guests will have the chance to stroll amongst 2,000 species of local and foreign flowers which, incidentally, bloom outside thanks to Akureyri’s warm microclimate.
