Where to stay in Akureyri

For easy access to Akureyri's most popular attractions, restaurants, and stores, consider staying in the lively waterfront area. This area features a number of hotels and hostels within walking distance of the city's museums, galleries, and sites. Cost-conscious visitors should explore one of the more inland guesthouses. Some double as student housing but are generally not raucous. Vacation apartments provide a good base for those planning a longer stay in the northerly metropolis and many are centrally located. To make the most of the scenic countryside surrounding the city, opt for a campsite or cottage in the outskirts.
