Luckily, we weren't alone, as we bumped into some other tourists, (two from the UK like us and two Americans), who also had been hoodwinked by the Beeb.
Akureyri is a nice small town. Not much there (apart from the fabled penis museum), but pleasant. Apparently it also has the world's most northerly Chinese restaurant. We wanted to eat there but it was closed. The other fantastic thing about Akureyri was, as with all of Iceland, the bookstores are the last places open. I love that in a culture, and this caused me to fall in love with the Icelandic people all over again and forgive them for the slightly freezing conditions!
We were only in Akureyri for a couple on nights as we completed the Jewels of the North tour. It was a nice place, but I wouldn't hurry back - too cold.
