Discover out-of-the-way places like The Aviation Museum and Akureyrarkirkja. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at The Old Farmhouse Laufas, stop by Christmas Garden, examine the collection at The Industry Museum, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

To see maps, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Akureyri day trip planning tool.
