Akureyri

Akureyri - Stolica północnej Islandii - lot dronem nad miastem. Akureyri, northern Iceland/ Five years ago tourism to Iceland was low-key. Now, after a currency crash, two volcanic eruptions, and five seasons of Game of Thrones, Iceland’s dramatic landscapes and distinctive culture are firmly on the map. For most visitors, that means the south of the country – the Golden Circle, Reykjavík, and the mountains and glaciers of Skaftafell. Less visited Akureyri, in contrast, sits on the north coast under snowcapped peaks at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord. It’s Iceland’s second biggest urban area, and while you shouldn’t expect a big-city vibe (the population is only 18,000), this easy-going place has more buzz than anywhere outside of Reykjavík. It’s also a great base for exploring the north's green pastures, fishing villages, mudpots, waterfalls, ski fields and whale-filled bays. Signs of the earth’s power – glaciers, volcanoes, lava fields and stacks of basalt – are everywhere, while strange underwater features lure divers and offshore islands are home to colonies of seabirds.//www.lonelyplanet.com //Visit and check my channel to see more of the most beautiful places on our planet:Feel free to embed on your website any video from this channel via the YouTube player, for commercial or non-commercial use (no need to ask for permission).The videos in the channel are licensed/shared under the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
