Located 7 miles south of Akureyri on Rt 821, this place is cute to visit. Inside is various kinds of Christmas ornaments. There is apple cottage behind it to get waffles and a fairy tower for children to climb as well as adjacent craft shops.

There is another building next to it that sells additional (non-Christmas related) gift items. Not a "must-visit". But if you're in Akureyri and have time to while...More

The house of Santa Klaus, with a store where to buy food and kitchen’s accessories and another full of Christmas decoration with the typical North warm style. You can seat outside to eat a caramelized apple in front of the open fire

This Christmas garden is located just 15 minutes away from Akureyri. Its small but its amazing! Its already provides the Christmas spirit for the visitors. A must visit with kids. Also try bacon caramel and chicken waffle caramel.
