Fodor's Expert Review Jólagarðurinn/The Christmas Garden

Akureyri Souvenirs
If your heart is two sizes too small you should probably skip this attraction. Jólagarðurinn is located just south of Akureyri in a fairy-tale-inspired house decorated with giant candy canes and trimmed with faux frosting. The inside is packed to its pretty little rafters with an impressive display of Christmas goods, where the smell of burning embers mingles delightfully with those of peppermint, cinnamon, and smoked lamb. Icelandic Christmas music blends romantically with the tick-tock of Black Forest cuckoo clocks and the sound of wood cracking on an open hearth, to fuel an atmosphere that should have your heart bursting with Yuletide joy, even if it’s not Christmas.
