Akureyri Botanic Garden

Posted on Updated on

The Akureyri Botanic Garden is one of the most northerly in the world and the oldest in Iceland. Along with displays of Icelandic and arctic plants, it has an amazing array of plant species in bloom in August. I wish I could grow delphiniums like these!

The garden is beautifully laid out and card for with very detailed labels describing the characteristics of the plant families on show.
