Akureyri, the picturesque "capital" of north Iceland, received its municipal charter in 1862. The fishing industry has long been the major source of livelihood for residents of the area, but in recent years various industries have also been established. Some 15,000 people live in Akureyri proper, and areas surrounding the town are growing rapidly. Akureyri serves as the hub of business and services in northern Iceland, and its role as an educational center is important and growing.Akureyri is located at the base of Eyjafj÷r­ur fjord, a beautiful region that enjoys great popularity with lovers of nature and outdoor activities.The Eyjafj÷r­ur district has diverse hiking trails such as those at Glerßrdalur as well as the unforgettable woods at Kjarnaskˇgur, and the nature reserve Svarfa­ardalur. There are many opportunities for fishing and hunting, among them sea fishing and salmon and trout fishing, for beginners and experts alike. Horse rentals are available for short rides and longer ventures.
