The isolated Icelandic town of Akureyri lies in the north of the country. It is home to an important port and fishing hub, mainly due to its ice-free harbour. The town has a population of approximately 19,000 people and a collection of mountains.
Close to the Arctic, Iceland has a very cold climate. Yet its volcanic activity and ocean currents create milder temperatures relative to other areas of a similar latitude.
Visit during the months between March and May for ideal backcountry skiing conditions.
