Inhabited since the 9th century, today Akureyri counts a population of over 17,700. The town – an important port and a fishing centre – benefits of a relatively warm climate and the harbour in Winter is free of ice.

Abitata già nel nono secolo d.C. oggi Akureyri conta una popolazione di oltre 17.700 abitanti. La città possiede un porto strategico e un importante centro ittico. La sua fortuna è anche di godere di un clima temperato che la mantiene libera dai ghiacci invernali.
