Akureyri in detail


Akureyri has several museums, and the most interesting of these, the Akureyri Art Museum has just undergone a major renovation and expansion. The Akureyri Art Trail brochure (available at the tourist office) maps public art around town. There are also museums dedicated to aviation, local industry, antique toys and motorbikes.

If you have your own vehicle, consider visiting some of greater Eyjafjörður’s museums flanking the eastern and western shores.

Many visitors use Akureryi as a base for visiting Tröllaskagi, Mývatn and Húsavík.
