Akureyri in detail


A seafront path fronts the fjord from the town centre to the airport. In winter snowfields draw skiers from all over the country, while independent summertime activities include hiking, golf and hot-pot-hopping.

Akureryi is also the base for a multitude of tours and guided activities all over Iceland's North.

Bike Hire

At the time of writing there were no businesses offering bike rental, but it's worth enquiring at the tourist office to see if this has changed.

Hiking Maps

A helpful resource is the collection of Útivist & afþreying hiking maps (there are seven in the series; #1 and #2 focus on the Eyjafjörður area); these are available at Ferðafélag Akureyrar and the tourist office.
