Visiting Nonni and Manni
Those familiar with the 1980’s television films about "Nonni and Manni" can meet the writer in Akureyri who provided the literary model for them: Jón Sveinsson (1857-1944). The author grew up in the Nonnahús, ðalstræti 54, a wooden house built in 1850, and one of the oldest buildings in Akureyri. Today, his life and work are depicted here with numerous original objects and photographs. For lunch (until 2 p.m.), Rub23 at Kaupvangsstræti 6 offers fresh sushi and light fish dishes, as well as vegetables or meat.
Natural Wonders Near the Arctic
The afternoon belongs to nature. The Botanical Garden in the Lystigarðin of Akureyri (free admission) is within easy walking distance. Located directly on the fjord, the area is home to over 1,500 plants from around the world, which are tested for suitability for the Icelandic climate. There is also a delightful coffee house. To round out the day, the Strikið restaurant at Skipagata 14 offers a delicious menu. The menu includes, for example, tenderloin steak or grilled salmon and Icelandic potatoes. Plan a whale watching tour for the coming days while you enjoy a delicious dessert ...
