Icelandic Restaurants North in Akureyri

I love to visit Akureyri and their Icelandic restaurants North. We just went on a little trip with our new born baby, and it was so much fun. Akureyri is somehow different from the capital city Reykjavik. The landscape is different and also less stress. We just drove and it took about 5 hours. We lived with a relative but Akureyri has also many very nice guesthouses and Hotels.

We just love to go to the swimming pool with our baby and she loves is too. Akureyri is famous for its swimming pool and ice-cream.

Bautinn is one of the oldest restaurants in Akureyri. They are located in one of the oldest house in town. They sometimes have very good offers. They are famous for their salad bar which comes with every main course. They are situated at Hafnarstræti 92, Tel: 462-1818. Price range is ($$-$$$).
