Icelandair Hotel Akureyri
Why We Love It
- The building was once the city’s university and is on a hill with views of the fjord & mountains
- It’s a 15-minute walk from the city centre & harbour, plus there’s a geothermal waterpark next door
- The restaurant serves local cuisine & there’s a happy hour every afternoon in the bar
- Akureyri is a buzzing city where "Game of Thrones" was filmed

A taxi will take less than 10 minutes and costs around £10. For those driving, there is ample free parking on site.
