Buses in Winter

Q: Is there a daily bus service from Reykjavík to Akureyri during the winter months? And I see that the long-distance buses leave from the Harpa Concert Hall Bus station. What are the nearest hotels to the new bus station?

Best wishes,

David, Toronto


A: There is a twice daily service from Reykjavík to Akureyri all year, both during winter and summer. Buses to Akureyri actually leave from Mjódd, and not from Harpa. There are not very many hotels near Mjódd (although there might be some bed and breakfasts or accommodation advertised on Airbnb), but it’s very easy to take a city bus there from anywhere downtown.
