After purchasing a few decorations it was time to head into Akureyri. Before hitting up the grocery store we went in search of ice cream at Brynja, which is supposed to be the best ice cream in town.

... in love with, Akureryi. A town of about 20,000 people nestled at the end of a fjord at the base of many mountains it's just a very picturesque town.

It is believed that it was used as a fortress from the 10th century but there is no record of any battle ever having taken place here. The wind up here nearly blew my ears off and both me and L off the top of the rock wall. Phew! it was a close thing. © Lynette Regan 7th June 2015
