The Aviation Museum

The Icelandic Aviation Museum is located at Akureyri Airport in the north of Iceland.
Aviation and Akureyri have had a close relationship since 1928 when the first scheduled passenger flight operated in Iceland arrived in Akureyri from Reykjavík via Ísafjörður and Siglufjörður. The aircraft was a Junkers F.13 operated on lease to a newly formed Icelandic airline named Flugfélag Íslands (the second of four companies to bear that same name). The aircraft belonged to Deutsche Luft Hansa and the pilots, mechanics and operations manager were also supplied by the German airline.
Since first opening the Museum has annually held a "Flying Weekend" on the last weekend in June. Incuded in the weekend's programme is the Icelandic National Aerobatics Competition as well as an array of displays and other activities.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
