The bus delivers passengers to Akureyri Bus Terminal in Oddeyrarbót 2, about five minutes walking distance from the town's centre.
Es lief alles wunderbar. Eine tolle Strecke quer durch Island und man sieht auch gleich ein Touri-Pflichtanlaufstellen. Der Fahrer war sehr nett und wir haben die Tour soweit genossen, leider empfanden wir den rasenten Fahrstiel teilweise bedenklich, daher ein Stern abzug.
