A mere 45-minute flight from Reykjavik is the beautiful town of Akureyri.
Situated on the shores of the north coast, this charming port town of around 15.000 inhabitants is the commercial and cultural capital of northern Iceland. The spectacular surrounding snow-capped mountains, lush farm pastures and crystal clear waters of Iceland's longest fjord make this town, with its many beautifully-maintained period houses, one of Iceland's loveliest urban settings.
The region has also been blessed with an unusually mild and pleasant climate, despite its close proximity to the Arctic Circle. Whether your plans are recreational or cultural, Akureyri is the perfect choice. For those simply wishing to savour this picturesque and friendly town there's plenty to choose from. Take a stroll through the fine Botanic Gardens having every species of plant native to Iceland, visit the various museums and restaurants, or enjoy events of the summer arts festival that extends from mid-June to August. The town has fine swimming pools and also boasts the world's most northerly golf course, which annually hosts the Arctic Open. Akureyri is also the ideal location from where to explore some of Iceland's most beautiful natural gems. You can travel to the Lake Myvatn area, famous for its rich birdlife, as well as its fantastic geological formations and hot springs. Take a trip to the nearby inhabited islands of Hrisey and Grimsey on the Arctic Circle and experience Icelandic nature and country life at its most unique. Or go on a thrilling whale-watching trip from the neighbouring coastal village of Husavik.

The airport runway is situated on a spit due south of the city centre. There are no public transport connections; however, taxis are available.
