This is the second largest city in Iceland, and it's called "The Capital of the North". However, don't look for a busy and packed city, it only has over 14.000 inhabitants, but it's really nice.

On the west shore of fjord Eyjafjörður, the pic was taken from the east shore.

Distance from Reykjavík: 389 kms.

    I hope to visit Iceland one day! Akureyri for sure looks like a quiet place for being the second largest city/town in a country.

    Great pages on Iceland. I must return to see more of the island than just Reykjavìk.

    Lovely Akureyri, so different from Reykjavík, it has some charm to it. Regína
