About our home


This is our main home. It´s an old house which we are renovating in steps. It´s in a walking distance from a food shop and the city center is about 7 min by foot. 6 people can sleep here in 3 bedrooms (We have 4 bedrooms but normally we just lock one for our stuff if you do not need it ). Open kitchen/living room area, one bathroom. The style is arty, simple and raw. We like retro things. My husband is an carpenter and he love recycling, he f.ex. made a tree house in our garden just from recycled timber.

Big garden where you can pick fresh salad for your dinner, playhouse for children, sandbox, swings and trampoline.

Akureyri town is a perfect place for exploring the North region.
Possible day trips are f.ex to Mývatn, Jarðböðin (the blue lagoon of the North) and Dettifoss the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Hlíðarfjall the best skiing area in Iceland is in Akureyri.

HOW TO GET TO AKUREYRI? It´s about 5 hours drive from Reykjavík. Buses and flights also a possibility if you do not want to rent a car. Inside Akureyri town all buses are free and you can use our bikes during your stay.
