If you can handle the Christmas cheer out of season, this multilevel gingerbread house sells a super-festive selection of locally made decorations and traditional Icelandic Christmas foods. It’s 10km south of Akureyri on Rte 821. There's a sweet store next door selling homewares and food products, and out back is possibly Iceland's cutest food hut selling waffles and toffee apples.
