    <p>Akureyri, pronounced &lsquo;ah-koo-rare-ee,&rsquo; is fondly nicknamed <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-destinations/iceland-cruises" target="_blank">Iceland&rsquo;s</a> &lsquo;Capital of the North.&rsquo; Despite its population of just 18,000, it is one of the coolest places in the country with eclectic caf&eacute;s, renowned restaurants and art galleries. The town is no stranger to contemporary dining, with menus embracing fusion cuisine using fresh local ingredients from the land and sea. It&rsquo;s estimated that Akureyri is home to roughly 50 restaurants, so there&rsquo;s plenty to look forward to for foodies on an <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/find-your-cruise?places%5B%5D=Iceland" target="_blank">Icelandic cruise</a>.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Aside from the delicious cuisine on offer, Akureyri is also the gateway to the spectacular beauty of the north, including the M&yacute;vatn region, Dettifoss waterfall, Go&eth;afoss waterfall and &Aacute;sbyrgi canyon as well as a variety of exciting wildlife experiences. Minke whales, humpback whales, killer whales and seals patrol the waters surrounding Iceland, and can be spotted from your cruise ship, or a more intimate wildlife boat tour during an excursion. While roaming through the landscape, look out for the elusive Arctic fox, mink, rabbits and reindeer.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Elsewhere, visitors to Akureyri can discover some of the best-preserved examples of ancient Icelandic housing by exploring the Lauf&aacute;s (turf houses); visit Lystigar&eth;urinn, Akureyri&rsquo;s botanical garden; explore the iconic church, Akureyrarkirkja, and discover the numerous, and beautiful, fjords surrounding the area.</p>\r\n
