Floral Haven of the North: Akureyri's Botanical Gem

The Akureyri Botanical Garden was established in 1912. It is one of the northernmost botanical gardens in the world and is a testament to the dedication and expertise of the staff who manage it, as growing plants in Iceland's climate can be quite challenging.
