Bjorg is an attentive host. And Ivar the caretaker is super nice. The house has everything you need. Perfect for kids with a large playground outside. The views are amazing. Take your binoculars, you see whales and dolphins in the Fjord from the window! The restaurant in teh harbour is very good, and the whale watching company is one of the bests. Very professional, very good boats and clothing, and great location. Thanks Bjorg for letting us stay at your place, it created memories if a lifetime for us, and for our 3 kids (12, 10 and 6).

Lovely and homely. Truly a beautiful place and worth all the money. A place to return to.

Large house with more than enough space for a whole family (we were 5) and a great view to the fjord. The harbor with the whale watching office and a restaurant can be reached after a 5 minutes walk. We really enjoyed and recommend it!

Wonderful house just north of Akureyri. We managed to see porpoises from the kitchen window. The whale tour from Hauganes is highly recommended with over 99% success rate for whale sightings.

Hauganes is a pretty little village off the tour bus and cruise ship track. Small town feeling with beautiful midnight sunshine (early July, I admit) and whale watching from the harbor right down the street. Just walk down the street and catch the boat with really nice people. We saw a huge herd (school?) of humpbacks feeding and everyone (only 28 people on a 21 meter boat) was amazed. Literally you stopped taking pictures because you had enough and just wanted to take in the amazing beauty of the wildlife here. Family run business (whale-watching) and the house super nice, large, full kitchen, three bedrooms, we were met the minute our car came into town. This is what you come to Iceland for...

The accommodation of Björg is very family-oriented and has a wonderful view of the sea. We felt right at home and our children loved the playground on the front of the house. It is a place to relax and rest. Not far from some sights and the city of Akureyri. Thank you so much we could be there. Kind regards Michaela and Family

Beautiful location and very relaxed setting. The beds in all the bedrooms were comfortable and we especially enjoyed seeing the northern lights along with whales as we stood looking out the kitchen window.

Me and my husband have owned his house for 13 years and have being renovating ever since and we love to stay there and in the future we are planning to stay there more than now. We love to travel, play golf and go skiing but most of all we love our four children and 11 grandchildren. Our favorite vacations are ski vacations and golf vacations. We are open to the opportunity to switch houses at places that can offer us to exactly that :-)
