It is a wonderful place to see all things concerning Christmas. There are gardens, shops and places to see the history of Christmas in Iceland. I would recommend this place for those christmas buffs!!

Located 7 miles south of Akureyri on Rt 821, this place is cute to visit. Inside is various kinds of Christmas ornaments. There is apple cottage behind it to get waffles and a fairy tower for children to climb as well as adjacent craft shops.

The house of Santa Klaus, with a store where to buy food and kitchen’s accessories and another full of Christmas decoration with the typical North warm style. You can seat outside to eat a caramelized apple in front of the open fire
