Santa´s HouseAkureyri and Santa's House

Akureyri has approx. 16.000 inhabitants and is Iceland's second most important commercial and industrial center. As you drive through Akureyri’s colorful streets, it is almost like taking a journey through the different eras of Akureyri's history. We begin with a stop at the modern church whose wonderful stained glass windows are renowned. Stroll the pathways of the lovely Botanical Garden before continuing to the Nonni Museum. Here, you will find an exhibition commemorating the works of writer Pastor John Sveinsson whose children's books earned international acclaim in the 1930’s-1950’s. See the fishing boats in the busy harbor en route to Listagil Street. It is in this area, in the very heart of the town, that artisans keep their workshops and galleries. You will have time to browse for a short while before boarding your coach once more in order to drive outside of Akureyri's city limits. Santa’s House is your destination and while at this latitude it is tempting to believe that it could well be the real thing,  this Santa's House is actually a charming Christmas store which is open for business all year round!  This is a great opportunity to pick up some mementos of your trip to Iceland.
