I needed a car

I needed a car for a few days whilst in Iceland on business. Rhino were the cheapest and car was fine, no complaints, but everything is expensive in Iceland, so £40 per day for a basic car that costs under £10 in Spain was a bit of a shock.

Guide to Akureyri

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.
 
There is also the chance to go whale watching there, but, as with your car hire, you should book ahead to reserve. As the third biggest city in Iceland, Akureyri is also thought of as the capital of the north of the country. Driving to or from Akureyri is an experience itself as you take the excellent ring road 1 which circles this island. Check out our drive smart guide to Iceland for more information. We can also offer car hire at Akureyri Airport and this airport is easily accessible via Air Iceland flights from the capital Reykjavik.

One of the main pastimes in Akureyri is walking, so take some good boots. You will probably still need your vehicle to get to the best vistas, and always keep warm clothing available as the weather can be quite changeable. Upmost care should be taken that you always know where you are with the help of a compass or GPS, or better still, have a guide with you. If an Arctic blizzard were to blow in from the sea you could be stranded for long enough that hypothermia would become a real risk. Nevertheless, Akureyri is an adventurous and incredibly rewarding place to visit.
