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

This Christmas garden is located just 15 minutes away from Akureyri. Its small but its amazing! Its already provides the Christmas spirit for the visitors. A must visit with kids. Also try bacon caramel and chicken waffle caramel.

Small but worth a visit! A little Christmas shop with all kind of kitsch. Do not miss the well behind the house and the tower. The Christmas house can be visited within half an hour and the easiest way to get there is by taxi...More
