Glerá river - lower part:
A scenic walk along the lower part of the river Glerá which flows through Akureyri. The route is mostly along the river and its canyon, passing the old power plant, crossing the red pedestrian bridge over the dam by the reservoir. Continues close to the university, where you also can make a small detour and visit the art piece "Iceland's bell", before crossing the river Glerá again and entering a small forestry area beside the river. When entering out of the forest cross the main road by the pedestrian crossing and follow the path into the residential area of Giljahverfi, by the neighborhood children school and kindergarten before turning right and returning to the route just above the river Glerá. After crossing the red bridge turn right along a path and stairs down into the canyon where the power plant is and reenter to the same route as you came just a bit further down along the river.
