  • Good visit. We find the usual calm in this kind of Museum. Not a single tourist when we arrived. Not very big but just what it takes. Icelandair headband that is available with the purchase of the ticket as well as a book with pictures of the planes into the Museum. Very friendly staff. Little more for the presence of a few pieces of the DC-3 that crashed in Iceland and we had seen earlier in the trip.

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.
