Iceland is a nation of poets and saga, which has over time and improved technology evolved into music, movies and augmented realities, including computer games and heavy smartphone usage. The urban areas of Akureyri and Húsavík contain museums, art galleries, cinemas, theatres, libraries and of course swimming pools where visitors can have a chat in the hot pots – on whatever topic.

But if you want to have your discussions in the bar, then just take your pick; there are 6 bars in Akureyri alone and several restaurants in the towns and in the countryside.

Culture is a part of our lives, but it can also nurture the economy. See how culture has created SMEs in Iceland and read a report on the topic.
