Akureyri has a very fresh feel to it. In my opinion, the town and indeed the whole country benefits from a high level of civic pride.

We enjoy hill walking and were able to walk up to the ski area (Hlidarfjall) straight from the Saeluhus apartment, about half on main road and the rest up a quiet mountain road from which we had good views. Information on other footpath or hill walking paths (if they exist) was limited.
