Akureyri Car Events

Today the Akureyri Car Club's most popular and by far largest event is the The annual Car Days week, with thousands of spectators attending each year, with the independence day carshow, the drag race and the mud bogging being very popular.  This year a sand drag race has been added to the event. 

The Akureyri Car Club area includes 1/8 drag strip track, sand drag track, great Formula Offroad arena, mud bogging pit and can host go-kart, drift and auto-x events.  It has camping site, offically open each year during the annual Car Days week, but also welcomes visitors attending other events.

The Akureyri Car Club Formula Offroad races are known for great tracks and nicely organized atmosphere.

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.
