The 2014-15 Holuhraun eruption produced more sulfuric dioxide than any eruption since 1978
The Christmas Garden in Akureyri town in North Iceland is a magical place to visit. The little, red house looks like something out of a fairy-tale, with gigantic sweets decorating the roof and icicles hanging from the eaves. And as if that were not enough, a charming little wishing well for unborn children is to be found in a small hollow in the garden. Sounds enchanting, right?
Inside the Christmas spirit rules every day, all year round. Hand-made Christmas ornaments, little tidbits of traditional Icelandic Christmas food and the Yule Lads are among just some of the things to be found in the Christmas House.
Open all year round.
June – August from 10am to 9 pm
