Akureyri Airport (AEY) is the second largest airport in Iceland. It’s located in the heart of northern Iceland, surrounded by stunning landscapes and within driving distance of many natural attractions.

Driving in Iceland

Remember that Icelanders drive on the right - this may take a bit of adapting to for our British visitors. Not to worry though, the roads are well maintained and signage is clear. Given the breathtaking sights along your journey, we recommend hiring a reliable car so you can see everything at your own pace.

Before hitting the road

It's important to remember that petrol stations are not as plentiful in Iceland as they are in the UK. Make sure you fill up before heading out, preferably on your way out of Akureyri. There’s an N1 station less than a 5-minute drive from the airport, open from 08:00 to 22:00 daily.

Currency and Payments

The Icelandic currency is the króna (ISK). Credit and debit cards are widely accepted, even for small purchases. Plenty of cash machines are available at the airport and in Akureyri. Don't forget to alert your bank to your travel plans to avoid any card issues while abroad.

Climate

Weather in Iceland can be unpredictable – it can change quickly and varies greatly around the country. Akureyri’s climate is relatively mild, although you can expect snow in winter. Make sure you're prepared for all weather conditions when packing for your trip.

Nearby Attractions

There’s plenty to see and do in and around Akureyri. The town itself is charming, with cafes, shops, and restaurants lining the streets. Not far from the city, you'll find natural wonders like the Godafoss Waterfall and the Lake Myvatn area, famous for its geothermal activity.
