Location & Nearby
Located in downtown Akureyri, the K16 Apartments are perfectly positioned for travelers looking to get to know the capital of North Iceland. This settlement is the largest in the country outside of Reykjavik. The suites are directly outside the spectacular church of Akureyrarkirkja and less than a thousand feet (280 meters) from the local harbor, which boasts incredible views of the fjord of Eyjafjordur and a range of boat tours.
The most popular of these are the whale-watching excursions, which mostly boast 100 percent success ratings in terms of sightings in summer. Humpback whales, white-beaked dolphins, and harbor porpoises are most commonly spotted, and from May to September, you can also witness Atlantic puffins.
Around the K16 Apartments are grocery stores, restaurants, bars, cafes, tour information, and some fascinating museums and galleries. Furthermore, tour operators can pick you up for nature excursions with ease to take you on trips such as river rafting, horseback riding, sightseeing, and skiing.
Those renting a car can easily visit the natural attractions in North Iceland from the K16 Apartments. Most of these are on the Diamond Circle sightseeing route, the region’s most popular tourist trail. Godafoss waterfall is a spectacular feature steeped in history and only 21.5 miles (34.5 kilometers) away. Driving 49 miles (79 kilometers) will take you to the Lake Myvatn region, where you can discover geological marvels, geothermal areas, and abundant flora and fauna.
The most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss, which thunders into a dramatic canyon, is 94 miles (151 kilometers) away, while the awe-inspiring canyon of Asbyrgi is 19 miles (30.5 kilometers) further.
