The Hotel

A charming stay

Icelandair Hotel Akureyri is a friendly hotel with tastefully decorated, bright and sunny rooms and inviting facilities. The view from the hotel is magnificent and visitors can enjoy not only our nearby natural wonders, and some of Iceland´s best skiing, but also by the cultural life in the capital of the North.

The warm geothermal swimming pool is just across the street and the centre og Akureyri is only a short walk away. The hotel garden is eminently cozy during winter and summer. Enjoy the midnight sun or the northern lights with open fireplace and blankets, drinks and snacks.
