About our home

This house is quite spectacular and located in the famous herring town SIglufjörður. It was built gradually from 1914 and until 1970 and used to be a tackle store with an apartment upstairs. Now it has been renovated as a one family vacation house. The house is cozy although it's not renovated in the newest styles most of the interiors are from 1970 the kitchen was made then and floor plan also. It's very well situated if people want to hike or experience the friendly people of this small town. Siglufjörður is a good base to stay because from there it's possible to drive to fabulous sightseeing places.

Bit of culture
Very nice place to get to know authentic Icelanders that are helpful and charming. There are two museums, library and galleries. And there is only 45 minutes drive to Akureyri which has both galleries with contemporary art and other museums.
Walks in the park
There are lots of hiking trails all over because the town is situated in a fjord surrounded by big mountains. You will have to stay a month or more to explore everything in the neighbourhood.
Day tripping
Lots and loads of day tripping all over the place both hiking and driving. There is a little island called Hrísey http://www.hrisey.is/en/ and of course Grimsey where you can go over
