Akureyri in detail


Several shops on Hafnarstræti sell traditional lopapeysur Icelandic woollen sweaters, books, knick-knacks and souvenirs. Remember to look for Icelandic-made knitwear (some is now mass-produced in China) and ask about the tax-free scheme.

The Glerártorg shopping mall (http://www.glerartorg.is), on Rte 1 about 1km north of the town centre, is home to a large Nettó supermarket and other shops and services.
