There is a great Botanic garden in Akureyri. The garden is one of the northern most botanical gardens in the world. The Public Park was opened in 1912 but the Botanic section in 1957. There are about 6600 alien taxa growing in the garden in beds and nursery and around 430 species of the native taxa.
A wide variety of both Icelandic and foreign flora are to be found there and new species are always being added to the collection. Please enjoy!
