An attractive wooded area with possibilities for a variety of recreational activities. The area is owned by Akureyri Municipal Council but is under the guardianship of the Eyjafjörður Forestry Commission.

There are floodlit walking paths and jogging tracks and when winter snow invades these, it is compressed and prepared for the cross country skier. There is a variety of gym equipment here and there in the wood and benches where one can rest before carrying on round the circuit.

No matter how the weather is in Akureyri, the weather in Kjarnaskogur is always good.

I jog there every day except for the winter it is the greatest feeling... just running in pure invironment breathing the fresh air, listening to the birds singing... what a feeling

There is also a small wooden house with toilets and facilities for heating a cup of coffee and attending to ones skis. There are two volley ball courts for the use of the general public and play equipment for both children and adults. Good facilities for barbequing can also be found and it is a popular outing for families to gather in Kjarnaskógur, grill some good food, play and browse through all the delights of that natural environment.

the wildlife in Kjarnaskogur is lifely, wild rabbits live there and many bird species.
