Akureyri, Iceland: Botanical Garden

You don't expect this much color so close to the Arctic Circle. Come to think of it, you don't expect a botanical garden either.

Yet Akureyri is proud to have one, and it's one of the northernmost such places in the world. The Garden is part of a public park, and there's no admission charge. So it's a nice place for a walk in the summer months.

This isn't a huge facility, but it does show how many different types of plants can survive and at 65 degrees North.
