Car hire in the North of Iceland - Car hire Akureyri Airport and town centre

Iceland’s second largest town is located in Northern part of the island. Like most other Icelandic towns with an airport, Akureyrarflugvöllur (AEY) is also literally within walking distance of the town centre. Unlike Reykjavik Airport (RKV), Akureyri Airport is actually an international airport with a runway long enough to accommodate for larger commercial jets such as the Boeing 737. Still the majority of passenger traffic to and from Akureyri is domestic.

Hire car in Akureyri
With a population of around 18.000, car hire is by no means a necessity to get around Akureyri itself. However, the ‘Norðurland eystra’ region of Iceland is vast and has much to offer, such as the Myvatn National Park, whale watching in Husavik, unique lava formations and Europe’s most powerful waterfall Dettifoss all of which are easiest accessible by car or chartered bus trips.

In Aukureyri, car hire is available from Alamo, National, AVIS, Budget, Hertz and Europcar Holdur Akureyrar which has got a very strong presence in Iceland with over a dozen car rental locations evenly spread across the country.
