    Visitor Reviews of Akureyri

    Steven Koch from Afghanistan writes:

    Akureyri is definitively Iceland's best ski resort that although not huge, has some really good slack country and steeps that can be hiked to. Akureyri is also very close to world class ski touring terrain on the Troll Peninsula in the north and the Hidden land to the north east, where folks can enjoy touring as well as awesome heli skiing.
