Snowy Arrival to Akureyri

... earlier given we'd arrived in time for the 12.15 flight. Unfortunately the cost to move the flight was several hundred euros so we waited it out for our 2pm flight. We just chilled and had some lunch in the small cafe area.

That night, I experienced my first midnight sun. Akureyri is in the north of the island at almost 66 degrees North, not quite in the Arctic Circle but very close. It is the furthest north or south I have been, surpassing Denali, Alaska (63 degrees) and Helsinki, Finland (60 degrees), and it really does not get dark at all, even though the sun technically drops below the horizon. Bring your sleep mask.

... cooler instead. sigh. Although the Pan seared puffin, with potatoes sounded quite magical, if it would have been Terns instead of puffins i was ordering it 100%.
Also, we officially crossed the arctic circle line and are now polar explorers or something similar, even though we spent the entire day in shorts and t-shirts as it was like 20 degs out.

The ferry ride back was quick as we decided to enjoy an in voyage ...
