Approach and landing in Akureyri, Iceland

*** Subscribing has become more important than ever! Please do so and support this channel by clicking this link: https://www.youtube.com/finnurth?sub_confirmation=1 *** I'm making a quick trip to Akureyri to buy a car. I take the 14:00 flight from Reykjavik and land in Akureyri 45 minutes later. The car I am buying is a Honda CRV EXE model year 2006. This will be a fine replacement for my Opel Astra caravan, model year 2000. It is only driven 74.000 km despite being 10 years old. It is 4WD, runs on petrol, automatic transmission, leather interior and has almost all security features imaginable. I will get to try it as soon as I land since the car dealer is picking me up with the car at the airport. I have already had the car tested by an independent firm and everything looks good. If I like the car, then I will sign the contract and drive it home right away. The drive back is about 400 km.

L'orologio a cucù (Cuckoo clock) più grande del mondo

Siamo in Germania, precisamente a Schonach, vicino a Triberg. Questo è il primo orologio a cucù più grande del mondo. Oggi superato da quello di Triberg.

Recorded September 5, 2008.

Akureyri is a town in the northern part of Iceland. It is the second largest urban area after the Greater Reykjavík area. The town has a total population of 17,304. Akureyri is positioned on the west side of the inland end of the fjord Eyjafjörður. It is surrounded by mountains, the highest being Súlur at 3980 feet and Hlíðarfjall at 3661 feet.

This video begins as we sail into Akureyri on the Sea Princess. Next we get a nice view of a northern bottlenose whale playing with her calf in the harbour. That is followed by a walk through the downtown area. The video concludes back on board the Sea Princess as we sail away from Akureyri.
