We drove the east side of this road a couples of times both ways. It is an extremely stunning drive with the best views of Akureyri especially at early sunset. Only eyesore is the presence of many road excavating machines for more than a mile...More

It's just a little roadside parking lot on the east side of Eydafjordur near the bottom of the fjord but there are very nice views across the water to the town of Akureyri.

My title says it all, two broken benches and a chain link fence. Good place but crowded on new years eve and good for taking photos of the lights in the town at night.

We drove in from the east and the views along this stretch of Eyjafjorour are great and you get an excellent view of the city of Akureyri as you drive in.

To stop there, preferably early on a sunny day, gives you a bird's eye view across the fjord overlooking Akureyri. Looking straight up from the town is the fantastic ski resort Hlíðarfjall, open from early December to the end of April. To stop there in...More

Driving east out of Akureyri,there are some superb views along this stretch of the '1' with plenty of places to pull the car over and absorb. Highly recommend doing so; especially the further north you go, before the '1' heads inland again.

A nice place for a short pit stop with a beautiful view over the "capital of the north", Akureyri. Provides a great photographic opportunity in all kinds of weathers

Even though it was a very rainy day in Akureyri the view was still spectacular. This is a great location to see the city.

Great place for the best view over Akureyri and Eyjafjörður. Works best during summer and after it gets dark. It can even be suitable for Northern Lights sightings as well. And yes it's a romantic place to drive to after midnight and the midnight sun...More
