Akureyri Offers City Sightseeing for Visitors and Locals

This summer, visitors to Akureyri, the largest settlement in north Iceland, as well as locals can drive around town on guided sightseeing tours. It is possible to buy a pass for the day, exit the car and step back in at different stops along the way.

The tour takes approximately 45 minutes and takes passengers around the oldest part of town, towards the airport, into the Kjarnaskógur forest and the scout campsite Hamrar, to the Brekkan district, through the town center, across the river Glerá into the Thorpid neighborhood and down to Eyri, the harbor area.

The car drives from the starting point every hour from 9 am to 4 pm. There are 13 clearly marked stops along the route. Each passenger is given a map and a brochure with information about all the stops. A guide accompanies all tours.

Tickets cost ISK 1,500 (EUR 10). For further information, contact the tour organizer, The Traveling Viking.
