Brynja is an ice cream shop located in a neighborhood in Akureyri, in northern Iceland, a town of 18,500 people. We were driven there by a friend from Reykjavik who had come to greet us at our ship. Though at first surprised when discovering the...More

They have soft serve, which can be had in a cone or cup, dipped or topped with a variety of toppings. However, everyone comes here for the twister, which is the ice cream blended with your choice of toppings. Some of the toppings may not...More
