Akureyri Mini Guide

With car hire in Akureyri you can see this small fishing town which has grown into a city. Akureyri is the most northerly city in Iceland and visitors are sure to be spellbound by this weird, treeless, and volcanic landscape. One of the main reasons people visit Akureyri is so they can get a glimpse of the illusive but beautiful Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis.

Driving to or from Akureyri is an experience itself as you take the excellent ring road one which circles this island. If you are hiring a car in Iceland, we recommend reading our Drive Smart Iceland guide to ensure you know the rules of the road and can drive safely in and around Akureyri. We can also offer car hire at Akureyri Airport and this airport is easily accessible via Air Iceland from the capital Reykjavik.
