A very quaint shop with unique christmas merchandise. We visited this place for a brief stop and ended up spending a few hours here. Definitely sample the waffle sticks, candied apples and cinnamon snacks here.

Very nice place to visit while in Akureyri. It as a lot of ornaments for christmas, both international and some Icelandic. I would have liked them to have more handcraft from iceland. Nice place.

I mean, it's a little christmas house that smells like christmas and is filled with christmas trinkets and bits and pieces from around the world, so what's not to like. That being said, I did visit in the height of Summer, so it was a bit of a bizzare stop on the trip, and the poor lady who had to stand listening to Icelandic christmas carols all day looked pretty bored in there, but for the sheer randomness alone you should stop by this place. It's about 10-15 minutes drive outside the city, not too taxing.

I bet it's gorgeous in the winter!

a bit out of the way - had to make a specific trip, but we wanted to get some Icelandic holiday decorations so this would be the obvious place. Very cute - well done and great for photos. the decor items were unique, a bit pricey but understandable - maybe best to say 'not inexpensive or bargain priced' The back tower has the storybook illustrations - very sweet and fun to visit.
This shop sells the annual artist Christmas bell - each is numbered and of course we had to have one! Good elf and troll items, beautiful handmade items and a surefire way to collect all 13 Santas in ornaments, statues, books - however you like them. There are some interesting churches and mailboxes along the road if you explore a bit - to make the travel worth it.
