Green Transport

Distances are relatively short in Akureyri and it is easy to get around by foot or bicycle. The local bus is free of charge and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of this great service.

It is an environmentally friendly way to travel around Akureyri  as already 2/3 of the fleet runs on locally produced biomethane or biodiesel. Here you can see a video about our biofuel-powered buses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxLNQKo7DTM.

Here you can find a map of biking and walking lanes:
