  • Gudrun's place is as spectacular as the pictures lead you to believe - even when covered in snow! We knew it would be a bit of a risk being the end of February, but made the most of being snowed in to this mountainside retreat. The heated floors and hot tub are all you need to stay cozy, and when the clouds clear, the view simply can't be beat. The home has everything you need for home-cooked meals and a great night's sleep. Not to mention, the wonderful neighbor who plowed us out each day, saving the second half of the vacation!! Would love to return when we can see the grass ;)

    Christina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is even better then expected. The hottop, fireplace and huge glass facade is perfect to watch the beautiful nature and northern lights. There is really nothing missing or if so they will organize it. For us it was the best place to go horse riding, snow mobile raceing and visit godafoss and all the places arround. It is a beautiful place! If we ever come back to iceland we will definitly stay in this house again.

    Jens2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Gudrun’s place was beautiful! Amazing and breathtaking views. She has a caretaker, which his help was honestly was one of the best parts of our stay. He made sure we had everything, took care of the snow for us every single day, made sure we were safe and his humility was like none ever seen before. The house has every amenity you’ll need to stay in and enjoy the views and quiet. It has been one of our best stays so far. Will definitely love to visit again.

    Carmen2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is every bit as stunning as the pictures and more. We stayed during early January. The cabin was warm and cozy while offering an amazing view of the mountains and Northern Lights. The heated floors were wonderful. I stayed with my family of four, there was plenty of room for us to enjoy each other’s company while still having private space during our extended holiday. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. The hot tub was a welcomed retreat after a long day of snowmobiling. There was plenty of closet/storage room to help us keep organized during our stay.

    Lynn2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing! We stayed for ten days over Christmas and wish we could have stayed longer. The house was sparkling clean with all the amenities we could have wanted and beautiful views which stretched across the valley. The underfloor heating was an especially nice touch. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub after days of playing in the snow. Northern lights were visible on a few of the nights which was an added bonus. Gudrun is amazing and provided a lot of detailed communication with caring touches. The house’s caretaker, Sigurdur, was wonderful as well and even in the midst of his wife expecting a child he found time to help us with the few odd questions we had. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    Latham2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in Skriða. The house is situated just next to the mountains. It was a real pleasure to wake up with such a view and spend our evenings in the hot tube. Everything was very clean and Gudrun always answered our questions and sent us a lot of information about places to visit, about the weather. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience!

    Margaux2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home with amazing views. We got hit with a blizzard while we were there and didn't mind being stuck inside a little bit more than usual when we could sit back and enjoy the views and the hot tub. I recommend you drive up past dalvik through the first long one lane tunnel - the views when you come out of the tunnel of mountain touching water is beautiful! Especially in the snow.

During the summer the village has a restaurant, kayak rental, art exhibitions in the old fish factory and whale watching tours. There is also a play area for children with a bouncing pillow; a public hot tub, grill area and a diving centre. A 10 minute drive will take you to the beer spa at a local brewery, more public hot tubs and one of the best swimming pools in Iceland. Akureyri is the second largest town in Iceland with a variety of restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping centre, recreational areas, museums and more.
  • The cabin is very cute, very well maintained and with Rachel's directions impossible to miss! We stayed here for one night over two weeks of road trip and it was over the top!

    Chloé2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is very warm, cozy and welcoming. Perfect for a couple. Definitely book this place if you’re looking for an small and affordable place to stay. The host is very thoughtful and made a snow heart for us. If you like cozy cabin vibes don’t hesitate to book this place. Thanks again Rachel & family.

  • This is a beautiful little lodge in a wonderfully peaceful area,close enough to Akureyri to be able to get in and out easily. Really enjoyed staying here.

    Chris2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • An intimate hut, inside there is everything you need, clean and welcoming, no noise, just silence and nature. Me and my partner fell in love with that place, and then it's where we saw our first aurora borealis, among those mountain huts in the middle of a snowy forest. Extremely recommended

    Lucas2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The igloo is just adorable and my stay here was very memorable! The inside of the igloo is very cozy decorated and has a homely atmosphere. Just pack a pair of warm socks because it’s not that warm in the night.

    Theresa2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice experience :)

    Daniela2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely worth a trip to the north! Very well thought out, with all sorts of useful things for your stay. Going to the toilet is a bit adventurous (especially when it is snowing and in the dark), but a headlamp was also used in the accommodation. Recommended!

    Marie2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The location is unreal, exactly what I wanted while visiting Iceland, very peaceful and calming.

    Morgan2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Igloo was amazing. Great place to stay and good location. I highly recommended this place to everyone who want try sleep under the stars but in warm bed.

    Ján2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Lola was really helpful! She was quick to respond to last minute questions. Would highly recommend her as a host.

    Daniel2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Even though it was raining/sleeting during our 1-night stay in the igluhus it was a fantastic experience. However, don’t go out of your way to stay here if your only motive is to see the northern lights— which is what we did— you never know if the weather will treat you kindly— which it didn’t. :( Overall, it was a cozy glamping experience and the bed was super comfortable. Lola even has slippers next to the bed! Such a nice touch. (Note! For those who don’t like camping/glamping keep in mind the toilet is not attached to the igloo. It’s a small hut just outside the igloo’s door— no electricity or running water. That aspect made our stay just a touch unpleasant since it was raining/sleeting during our 1-night stay, but we’re big campers so it didn’t bother us too much.) :)

  • Lorenzo is an awesome host! And the little cottage is awesome as well! We spend three nights there and were sad that we had to leave due to a snowstorm. But even under this circumstances Lorenzo did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We got very good recommendations and enjoyed our private sauna! Definitely worth a stay! If we come back to northern Iceland we'll come back to Lorenzo!

    Daniel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Litli cabin was small and cute. We stayed here for its easy access to the Beer Spa, which is less than a ten minute drive. Lorenzo was there to welcome us. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this cute little cabin!

    Charla2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • It is a little house with beautiful views, everything was very clean and the owner very friendly. The shower was not inside the house but it was right next door, next to a sauna that could also be used.

    Eunice2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • All time favorite!

    Marius2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice, super cosy cottage in beautiful surrounding. Easy Check-in process and great communication with Lorenzo. Perfect place to relax after an active day and to look for nothern lights.

    Isabella2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay. There is a separate sauna and shower apart from the cabin itself, which is pretty cool. Would recommend.

    Hailie2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, very small accommodation. For one night absolutely sufficient, if you like it cuddly. The communication with Lorenzo worked very well, he is a very nice host!

  • Can’t say enough good things about this cottage! Whether you’re traveling with just one other person or a small group, this place is amazing! The sauna and hot tub are very accessible and easy to work, and the view from the front is amazing. Lorenzo is a great host who replies quickly, so if you have questions, he’ll help you out quickly!

    Matt2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in Dalvik. The view from the hot tub was nice and everything was super clean. Would be happy to stay here again.

    Sara2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy Cottage with breathtaking fews. We really enjoyed our stay in Dalvik. We really felt at home in the cottage and loved everything, especially the sauna and hot tub. The communication with Lorenzo was easy and he even went out of his way to send me my kindle, which I had forgotten in the cottage. Thanks so much for that.! We definetly recommend a stay in the cottage!

    Jutta2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was good to be able to use jacuzzi. The radiator was so full that I could stay the warmest in Iceland and the kitchen utensils were clean and versatile. The bathroom is a bit old but tidy. The scenery is good and you can relax right away, just 10 minutes after the Dalvik Whale Tour. Host Lorenzo was friendly and gave a quick message.

    Sora2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and very nice view. Well equipped and we really enjoy the barbecue facilities. Highly recommend!

    Theorn2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here in Dalvik for one night as our family was driving the Ring Road around Iceland. We were going Whale Watching with Arctic Sea Tours and this house was close to our departure destination. It was a cute home with a beautiful large window and incredible view. It was a bit tight for our family of 7 adults, but we managed. There was a microwave but no oven, which was fine for us since we weren’t planning to do major cooking. We used both the sauna and the hot tub. Overall, very cute place! Great communication from Lorenzo. Would definitely recommend.

    Dalvík, Iceland

    Our house is placed in an beautiful island not far from Akureyri and has a great view over to the sea and up in the mountains. It's a quiet and a friendly place where family and friends can have a wonderful time together. A restaurant is near by and an grocery store. A hot-tub is placed at the house but also there is a swimming-pool on the island. You’ll love our place because of the coziness, the location, the views, and the people.
    We have registered two of our cottages here on this site. The are both located in the same area in Hrisey. When you travel to the island you have to take the ferry Sævar from Árskógssandur for about 15 minutes and you can walk from the ferry to the cottages, it takes about 12 minutes. Our cottage is very well equipped for staying both in summer and winter time. The whole summer period of 2019 has already been rented!

    Hrisey, Iceland

    The house is located on the island Hrísey (population: 153) on the north coast of Iceland. The entire house is provided. It is basic, but cozy! 20 min ferry ride from Árskógssandur every 2 hours from 8 AM to 11 PM. The small village is super friendly with a grocery store and nice swimming pool (new, geothermal), and offers lots of activities - whale watching, ocean fishing, bird watching, hiking, watching northern lights etc 25 min drive from Akureyri (capital town of the north) to the ferry.
    This place is a full house in a small town on a island in northern Iceland. Towns close by: Akureyri, Dalvik, Siglufjörður, Ársskógssandur
  • Our holiday in Hrisey was great. We liked the house. We had a nice holiday there.

    Nicola2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun place with great locals! Wish we had more time!

    Jillian2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was what we expected and what we wanted for a quiet month. The village is friendly: market, restaurant, and swimming pool staff was always welcoming. The daily "backyard" walks into nature among the nesting birds, shoreline cliffs, and meadows was always a treat.

    Scott2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing island of Hrisey is truly a gem in Iceland. Awesome views and a rich bird life. The cottage had everything you could wish for and Valdimar has been quick to respond and been friendly and helpful all the time. We are incredibly pleased and completely in love with this place. Will return as soon as we get an opportunity.

    Carina2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay! Very spacious, comfortable house. The kitchen is fully equipped (oven did not get as hot as it should have though) and easy to use. Very close to the ferry, trails, store, and amazing geothermal pool. There are puzzles and games, too! Thanks!

    Laura2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay ! We would absolutely recommend it :D

    Janina2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful and spacious house! So comfortable (great beds and bedding!)and very well appointed! The kitchen has everything you need and the bathroom is the biggest one I have seen in Iceland and has a tub- which is rare! Valdimar is a great host with lots of good suggestions of what to do in the area and he clearly has taken great care in the furnishing and upkeep of this house on this charming island! The view out the back of the house is great and you are also very close to the sea. My kids loved the playground with a zip line and bouncy air pillow- we let them walk down there by themselves since there are so few cars on the island! We enjoyed whale watching out of Hauganes, (very close by) and even brought back some fresh caught cod that I was able to cook up for dinner that night, after a visit to the island pool, which was delightful and very modern! Valdimar’s place is ideal for a family or good sized group and would also be great for a longer stay. If you are looking to stay somewhere very special take the ferry to Hrísey and stay at Valdimar’s for a few days! It is a great break!

    Carolyn2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Valdimar's house is perfect for a group of 5. He has a nice house on an adorable island. You can always take ferry rides back to mainland, but our group found that two of our best days came from sleeping in and exploring the island. It has some beautiful (and challenging) hikes on the far side that you can tell not many people have been on before. The house has comfortable beds and a welcoming atmosphere. The record player is a great touch

  • A real gem! Welcoming and cosy place right next to the sea, about five minutes walking distance to the village Hauganes. Petur and Swany are great hosts and they will help you in any way they can. Watching the beautiful aurora from the outdoor hot pool tops is off perfectly.

    Paul2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a forest lodge by the lake. The environment is elegant and quiet. You can experience the Nordic groves along the path along the house, stepping on the soft grass, facing the innocent lake and the rolling hills. That washes the peace of mind. The landlord’s family is warm and welcoming, giving people the feeling of going home.

    The house is beautifully located in Hjalteyri. From the house, there is a stunning view over the fiord, with both mountains and water in sight.

  • The best airbnb I stayed ever. Full equipment kitchen, super clean, wonderful view, we saw the whale(even just far away), aurora...Will definetely go back next time to Iceland for a couple weeks! (if there is wine opener and wine glasses would be perfect)

    Frankie2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay. The hotpot was an added bonus for us! House was very clean and loads of space for our family of 5. Would recommend if in the area.

    John2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house with wonderful view around 20 minutes drive from Akureyri. Calm, clean and well equipped with a nice kitchen. Everything you need is there and the house is quite spacious (at least for a couple). You can see whales from the living room and we had the chance to see Northern Lights from the terrace. Perfect place to stay.

    Andre2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time staying here in September 2019. The place was sparkling clean and the views from the home our absolutely stunning! Valgerdur was very quick to respond to any questions that we had and was a perfect host. We only have positive things to say about staying here - it definitely exceeded our expectations!

    Danielle2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Of I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Great location, just a 10 minute drive into town. Wonderful views of the snow capped mountains and whales. The hot pot was just icing on the cake. Highly recommend!!!

    MarLea2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay in the beautiful cottage, very well equipped making everything much easier. The location was perfect for us, with amazing views and near Akureyri and Dalvík and some other locations we expected to visit. We had a really good time, and saw northern lights almost every night. We had a very good communication with the host.

    Jess2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We have spent 4 lovely days in this wonderful and beatiful house with big windows and all comfort available. We did not use the hot tub because of the strong and cold wind. The bedrooms had enough space and the beds were top. A huge bathroom with a warm (rain) shower could be used. A cosy livingroom and open kitchen gave it a modern touch. We enjoyed the amazing view at the Fjord and could spot some whales. And top of the bill, we saw one time the Northernlights for 2 hours at night, just above the house in front of us. It made it all a lifetime experience for the kids and ourselves. Our host Valgerdur was anytime available via Messenger AirBnb.

    Peter2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely house in a rustic and charming hamlet. It's great for relaxing and wandering. We loved it!

Very helpful, accommodating and pleasant. We enjoyed our overnight stay with them and will return if the opportunity arises!

    Marine2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lola and Laurent are lovely couple. They made a cozy space and tidy kitchen and shared space. We stayed at the bear room. The place is in the quiet area and we really enjoyed walking at all area in the town. There was an interesting beer Bath spa. We loved to watch the northern lights on the dark street away from the home area.

  • The location can’t be described. It is a movie scene romance novel and a place to heal. Thank you Jan

    Ash2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is cute and offers a place of solitude for a couple or a family. It offers a kitchenette and refrigerator for a couple days worth of food so you can cook and eat their. The location has beautiful vistas of the mountains and even a view of a glacier. If it is a clear night you may be able to see the northern lights in a spectacular fashion!

    Sam2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful place we stayed in Iceland! The pictures are 100% accurate but you have to see it to believe it. The host Jan was super communicative and gave us great tips for the area. The inside of the cottage was just as pretty as the outside and the outdoor shower was incredible. A hot shower standing in the mountains! Nothing better! Absolutely recommend this place!!!

    Emily2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jan is very nice and helpful and his place is absolutely amazing.

    Grzegorz2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • This location is off the beaten path and a little harder to get to, but we had no trouble. It is secluded and offers and excellent view. Well stocked amenities. It is a cute little cabin with plenty of room and good wifi. Outdoor shower seemed questionable but we ended up loving it! One of our favorite stays in Iceland.

    Matt2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Spent one night here. It was perfectly clean and super cosy. Had a great night.

    Guilhem2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • IT was an amazing relaxed and green place in the middle of the mountains. I defintaly recommend to stay a couple of days to feel relaxed. Thanks!

    Caroline & Klaas2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this cabin outside of Dalvik! The outdoor shower was a fun experience, and we enjoyed grilling and cooking dinner after our long days of driving around, whale watching and other sightseeing, and museums. The views were incredible! Our only wish is if the bed was a bit longer as my husband is 6’3” (190 cm) - was too short for him.

    Dalvík, Dalvíkurbyggð, Troll Peninsula-North Iceland, Iceland

    Our newly renovated house stands in the centre of Dalvík. There are great views of the harbour and the fjord Eyjafjörður just metres from the front door. To the back of the house are views of the spectacular mountains. The house is a perfect base from which to explore all that Dalvík and the surrounding area has to offer. All the main attractions such as the whale watching tours, museum, music hall/cultural house, restaurants/bars/cafes are all within easy walking distance from the house.
    The house has two bedrooms, both of which offer two single beds that can be put together to make doubles. The kitchen and living area is largely open plan, but the TV room can be closed off using a sliding door that´s concealed inside one of the walls. The TV room then becomes another bedroom and the U shaped sofa can be made in to large bed with plenty of space for two adults. Above the TV room there is a sleeping loft. This is a very cosy area and has a large window with views to the mountains. At least two can sleep in the loft but please note the low ceiling. The kitchen is fully equipped with built-in dishwasher, built-in fridge freezer, an oven and a combination oven/microwave. The main bathroom is a walk in wet room with a great shower. There´s a second WC which is also the laundry room and has a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The TV room has a 55 inch TV. There´s also free high speed wi-fi. Outside the house has two private off road parking spaces.
    Dalvík is a beautiful true fishing village located in the "Eyjafjörður" fjord in the north of Iceland. The town´s harbour is a fishing and commercial port and is also the departure point for the ferry "Sæfari", which goes to the island of Grímsey. A few minutes away is another fishing village called Árskógasandur, where the ferry "Sævar" goes to a small island just outside Dalvík called Hrísey. It also has the Kaldi beer baths, a must try for the beer connoisseur. We recommend visiting the islands as day trips. All within short walking distance, Dalvík has a lot to offer. There are popular whale watching tours, interesting museums such as Byggðasafnið showing how the area got built up and there are a few cafes, bars and restaurants. Dalvík's music hall/cultural house is a two minute walk from the house and often hosts concerts/live music and art exhibitions. The lunch buffet there on weekdays is worth a visit too. Dalvík has a modern sports centre with indoor facilities and an outdoor swimming pool, water slides, sauna and hot tubs. A great way to mingle with the locals or just relax after the day´s adventures. One thing to mention are the northern lights which can be absolutely fantastic in the area. The best time to see them would be October to March when it is darkest in Iceland. Dalvík is also known for holding the annual "Fiskidagurinn mikli" The great fish day festival that attracts around thirty thousand visitors. It is held the Saturday after the first Monday in August each year where the local fishing industry sponsors a free all you can eat fish buffet by the harbour with lots of food stalls offering all kinds of fish dishes for everyone to try. Then the day finishes with a fantastic concert capped off with a really spectacular firework show. This is an absolute must if you are in the north of Iceland at this time.
  • Quiet house, really had everything you need, we were impressed by the house and didn't want to leave :)

    Michael2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very neat and good accommodation. 100% recommend this accommodation.

    Gísli2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was our second stay in the house and it was outstanding again. Our last visit was almost one and a half year ago and we expected everything to look more used and the like but everything was in absolut top condition. Even all the things in the kitchen. The house is a true beauty and it's so comfortable. We would book again anytime!

    Alexander2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • It is really modern and very clean apartment up to 8 people! Very central located - in front of harbor, between spirits store, if you'd choose to have some glass, and grocery store to fill up the fridge and make a meal on your own. It is cozy, comfortable and has lots of necessary amenities. Would honestly suggest to everyone who is about to visit Dalvik and Iceland North regions! Worth yo stay!

    Haralds2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Super suitable tips, good indications and elegant house, all new and clean. A super nice stay. The charming and authentic village of Iceland. The bar or pub at the entrance very cozy and with very nice owners! The arrival and abandonment of the very flexible schedule house. Thanks Magnus!

    Rakel2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first time using an airbnb out of the country and it has been my favorite experience thus far. It is very clean and perfect! There are two rooms and a loft that can be used to sleep in as well as a living room with a very comfortable couch. It was about a 5 hour drive from KEF airport and has many things close to it on the north side to see and do. Would recommend 100%

    Beatriz2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, with excellent views of the fjord. Super clean and excellent communication. I would highly recommend Magnus and Justin. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us!

    Vellir is a lovely accommodation in Grenivík, in north Iceland. It is located on the shoreline and has a wonderful view over the fjord. About 25 min drive from Akureyri. Grenivik is a magical place. The house is 80m2 on three floors. The evening sun is quite spectacular from the house that we recommend enjoying. There is also a good mountain view and in the winter, this can be a good location to see the northern lights. It is a regular occurrence that there are some whales swimming in the area.
    Vellir is an old cosy Icelandic house built in 1922. There are steep steps between floors, especially from the 1st floor down to the basement as there is one room. When you go down to the basement you need to go through the toilet. In the basement there is also a shower and laundry. All these facilities in the house make it special, you even think you´re back to the old days :) Everyone can see pictures of the steps in the pictures gallery and all other spaces in the house. Guests who have come to Vellir speak of a very good spirit in the house :)
    The neighborhood is very quiet, great views are all around, the mountain view is magnificent and the power from the sea (Atlantic Ocean) is incredibly great !
  • The house is really welcoming, clean and tastefully decorated. The environment is very calm and the view magnificent. The house remains accessible in the middle of winter, but suitable vehicles are required. We had a great stay! However for the next visitors be aware that the stairs are very narrow and the shower is about 1m75 high so you have to be less than 1m60 to be able to shower standing! It is an original experience!

    Adeline2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gisli's place was amazing. We had everything we need.

    Odnoo2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We were supposed to stay 1 night in this lovely house but unfortunatly a snow storm contraign us to stay one more night. Gisli have been realy understanding and kind. Thanks a lot for your help and reactivity. If i came back in Iceland i will contact you again for sure !

    Antonin2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Michael2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. Very relaxing enviroment, amazing views on mountains and the ocean. The house is fantastic, very cozy. You will feel home in a matter of minutes. Great kitchen with everything you need. Washer and dryer came in handy too. Great location and unforgettable scenery. Would pick it again with out hesitation.

    Christopher2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our 4 nights at Vellir were very enjoyable. House was clean & well supplied. Stairs are unique & fun for a change. Hint: Go down basement stairs backwards. Easy as pie. Shower is huge. A little shy in headroom, but not a problem. Town is small & friendly. Pleasure to enjoy quiet locale. Beautiful location. Local store in town serves most needs. Nice owners. Good hike up smaller mountain to south beside town. Try horseback riding down the road. Very close & well worth it. Gisli went out of his way to get forgotten medication to us after we left. Great guy & great place to stay. Definite recommendation if you’re in the north.

    Grenivík, Iceland

    Peaceful and lovely cottage on the land of farm Syðri-Hagi with lovely ocean views. Located on the west side of Eyjafjörður, with majestic mountain ranges and welcoming valleys. The cottage Sólsetur (Sunset) is 25 square meters, built 2016-2017. The cottage has one bedroom with two beds and a sleepingcouch for two in the livingroom. The kitchen is fully equiped. Facilities for four persons. On the terrace there is a geothermal hot tub and a gas grill.
    The summer house is bright and cozy with beautiful views. Here you can enjoy the peacefulness.
    You can explore the majestic mountain ranges and welcoming valleys, either by car or on foot. You can go sea angling from the coast, free of charge, and in the late summer you can go berry picking on the farms land. There are also many good skiing areas whithin easy reach. We recommend Whale watching at Hauganes nearby and the beer spa at Árskógssandur.
  • Inspite of difficult times and difficult weather conditions (a lot of snow) we had a wonderful time. We especially enjoyed the hot tub. Linda was very caring and had great tips.

    Max2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space with a hot tub!

    Kaitlin2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as expected! If you like adventure and don’t mind a little snow up to your knees, this is place in the winter time! Spectacular view (when it’s not snowing lol) Linda was excellent and messaging each day, so the road could be plowed for our safe departure into the city.

    Wesley2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Linda's place was amazing! The cabin is small but perfect for two. We were snowed in one night with a big storm. We spent the day in the hot tub enjoying the views. I would certainly be back, it was a really magical experience. Beds were very comfortable, very clean, nice smart tv and wifi, perfect hot tub.. great ammenities.  Here are a couple of recomendations: 1. If you need food, the closest stores are in Akuyeri and Dalvik. Cheaper in Akuyeri netto. 2. Its a little tricky to find. If you are coming from Akuyeri, it will be on your left. If you pass the beer spa you have gone too far.. about 3km. Turn around, drive back about 2-3 kms.. look for a arrow sign post on the right side that says Gaita. Turn there.. That's about it. Most awesome airbnb I've stayed at in a while!! Linda also gave us some coffee and fresh rolls when we could not get out. Really great!

    Adam2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Linda’s cosy, secluded little cabin. It was conveniently located and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a lovely bonus and we really enjoyed the mountain view and the snow whilst in it.

    Tina2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic place to stay. Plenty of space and privacy, our hosts were amazing. The area is incredible too.

    Andrew2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Away from the hustle and bustle, the scenery here is unique! !! !!

    Karryl2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed all over the world in many different types of accommodation and we have to say this is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Great communication with the directions to get there. The cottage itself is heaven! Best location, cleanliness throughout, mod cons (oven, hob, apple TV), the hot tub was amazing too! The most comfortable bed and nicest bedding I've slept in! Loved the offer of local handmade woolen gloves and hats to purchase from the local farm. I just cannot recommend staying here enough. We were stranded in this part of Iceland for a day due to the weather and Linda came to our rescue and set our minds at rest by allowing us to stay for longer, such great hospitality was very much appreciated in what could have been a very stressful situation. I cannot think of a place I'd rather be snowed in!!! Beautiful views during the day from all angles and fantastic light show 2 out of 3 nights! I cannot recommend staying here enough! Wish we could have stayed longer and I'm hopeful we will be back one day.

    Litli-Árskógssandur, Iceland

    A house in Svarfadardalur valley, active farming area. From our beautiful and warm flat we have the pyramid like mountains to the south often named “The Icelandic Alps”, In bright weather to north you can even see Grímsey island at the polar circle.
    This is our second home in rural Iceland in Svarfadardalur valley, 5km from Dalvík. In Dalvík are grocery store, pub, restaurants and swimming pool. There are many other recreation possibilities in our neighbourhood like horse riding, whale watching, sea angling, golf, hiking and skiing. Only a few hundred meters from our house is a nature reserve and a river with rich bird life to watch. Short distance to Akureyri, “the capital of North Iceland”, Mývatn, Húsavík, Siglufjörður, Skagafjördur. The accommodation is one of two flats on the upper floor of this 40 year old house with the name of Laugasteinn in middle of Svarfaðardalur, often named the most beautiful valley in Iceland. There is a beautiful view in all directions which is one of the attractions of the apartment. There are two bedrooms, kitchen, toilet (that is shared with the smaller flat, which our co host Ösp, lives in) big living room and big balcony. Below the balcony is the sheep house with 25 sheep which belongs to “the hobby farmer” on the lower floor. The sheep decorate the view from the west window and the balcony. The ferry Sæfari, which sails from Dalvík, serves the island of Grímsey, Iceland's northernmost community, which lies on the Arctic Circle. Dalvík is well known for alpine skiing and there and in neighbourhood are some of the best known ski areas in Iceland.
  • Great landscape (whales can be seen in the fjord on land, do not forget binoculars) and quiet (in the lap of the mountains). Lovely decorated. Shower unfortunately not really available (open bathtub).

    Malte2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect in this beautiful, clean airbnb. We had a great time.

    Wesley2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • From one window you can see white sheep giving birth to lambs, from the other window you see snowy mountains (May) looking like pyramids, so you can feel as if you were in the Valley of the Kings. There is even a poster of Käthe Kollwitz, despite only in the bathroom, one can also enjoy thousands of Icelandic books. Picturesque and remarkable place to stay we can only recommend.

    Martin2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home in a beautiful valley, very close to Dalvik. Quiet and peaceful, perfect for a cozy night in!

    Tegan2019-05-06T00:00:00Z

  • This is quite possibly one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. The design of the house is amazing. The attention to detail is very pleasing. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Be mindful there is not standing shower which can be a little tough for fairly tall people like me and my friends. Öps was very lovely and helpful. The communication was excellent. I really loved the place. Recommend it 100%. P.S. take a look at the backyard when you are there.

    IS, Iceland

    Our cosy little red cabins are situated near our home at the south entrance of Dalvík village. Ideal for small families, bird watchers or who ever wants to relax away from big town noise. Close to Grímsey ferry port, whale watching and hiking routes!
    Our cabins are situated in a small village, a busy one but quiet. Fitting for 3 adults...or a couple with a child/youngster (or two young children...send us a request about if you fit in there!). A double bed and a sofa bed, kitchenette, two plate stove, most common tools for cooking, fridge. Small wc but no shower...free access to local swimming pool.
    We are hard working people who have grown up in a typical fishing village. We respect the things we live from. We love the nature beiing so close, valleys, mountains, the arctic sea...river and black sand beach! But we also love having our guests to enjoy some of the same things as us...let us help!
  • Only good things to to say about Bjarni and his red cabins! He greeted us as soon as we pulled into the driveway... he spent a nice amount of time making us feel welcome and showing us around his property. The hot tub and sauna were ready to go for us as well which was a lovely addition. We also really appreciated the tips he gave us for Dalvik -- the swimming pool! The entire space was also very clean and homey. It was such a great night... we only wish we could have stayed a few more nights. HIGHLY recommend staying here if you can.

    Sydney2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Dalvik. Close to everything you need and to See. The cabins are great, clean, super comfortable, supplied with everything you need. I loved staying there. Besides you can also use the Hot tub (Just great) and the sauna (greater in combination). The shower i did Not miss at All. Bjarni and Heida are warm and very welcoming people. If you have the Chance go to Heida' s Cafe and eat the fishsoup or a piece of cake there, it is great food. If i come again to iceland and to the north i will rent a cottage again :-).

  • Very warm and nice host. Would go back to him anytime. Everything was very clean and tidy, also that you do not have your own shower does not do anything, you can take a shower in the nearby pool but has a hot tub and a small sauna.

    Bääda2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Bjarni came to welcome us in his pretty little cafe, the cottage is very comfortable.

    Yves2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Bjarni was super nice & even provided us with some local tips for the rest of our journey. Sadly we only stayed for one night but the cottage was really clean plus had a 10/10 hot tube outside, perfect for watching the northern lights. One of the most helpful hosts I’ve met, would definitely recommend him! :)

    Ida2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay like ever! Nothing else needs to be added. Stay with Bjarni.

    Sandra2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the cabin. It was easy to find and check in was simple. Had everything we needed for our overnight stay. Quiet and peaceful. We couldn’t be happier.

    Arina2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We reached Dalvik around 9:30 pm after a beautiful 5-hour drive from Reykjavik and went straight to the Gisli, Eirikur, Helgi cafe which also Bjarni owns. Their fish soup is the best but our tiredness from the long drive and misty weather outside made it a heavenly experience. Bjarni met us there a few minutes later and took us to the cottage after we finished our dinner. He has a geothermal hot tub right behind the cottage and we soaked in it for an hour at midnight under the moonlight. Next morning we woke up to the beautiful mountains around Dalvik. We walked to the football field right across from the cottage and watched some school kids practice soccer under the Icelandic mid-day sun. The entire stay was a magical experience and one of the highlights of our entire Iceland trip. I would love to visit Dalvik again and stay in Bjarni's cabin for a couple more days next time and definitely have some more of that fish soup the next time.

    'Smiðjan' or the Smithy has been lovingly restored keeping original aesthetics, comfort and artistic impression as a focal point. The house offers many extras such as excellent blue tooth speakers, books and musical instruments for relaxation. This is a place where you can stay for a while. Smiðjan is almost a 100 year old house on the shores of the little fishing village Dalvík in the north of Iceland with views of spectacular mountains and valleys where hiking is at your doorstep.
    Smiðjan is not suitable for young children as the staircases are very steep and have not got adequate protection around the opening of them.
    There are several eateries in Dalvík including our next door favorite quirky pub/cafe Gisli, Eirikur, Helgi, kaffihus Bakkabraedra based on local folk legends where you can sample THE best seafood soup. Dalvik has all the conveniences of a large supermarket, laundromat, hardware shop, post office and a liquor shop.
  • My husband and two other couples had an amazing and comfortable stay at Dora's place. The shower was the best we've ever been in! It was like standing under a waterfall. The location was great for horseback riding, whale watching and walking to the local cafe and stores. We all highly recommend this place if you're staying in Dalvik!

    Kat2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this home to ANYONE. It was very charming, clean, cozy and we loved the location. If you’re looking for a true small town Iceland experience, book this place. The soup restaurant a couple doors down was amazing.

    Melanie2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing three-level house on the quiet outskirts of Dalvik. Very well-appointed kitchen, so we could do plenty of cooking for ourselves. We heartily enjoyed our stay! (Also some board games and things for children, so a great place for groups with children.)

    Sean2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our visit was fantastic! This cute and surprisingly roomy house is located just 25 minutes from Akureyri, which was perfect for us. The house was warm, spotless and welcoming upon arrival. The host left notes and welcome chocolates (yum). The bathroom is AMAZING (talk about an enjoyable shower experience & tub soak). The beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean. We were within walking distance to the gas station, coffee/cafe shop, whale watching tour & pub. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly!

    Hanna2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was perfection! The hosts were lovely and thoughtful, the house was exactly as described and the town had everything we needed.

    Brian2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely home in North Iceland with great amenities and personal touches. The centrality proved to be ideal for trips to the fjords, Akureyri and points east, plus the stunning island of Hrisey. Highly recommended.

    Patricia2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely beautiful house and cozy atmosphere. Convenient location and cleanliness up to 10. Highly recommend.

    María2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect home base for our family of four to explore North Iceland. The home was spotlessly clean and had everything you might need to make yourself comfortable. It was a great place to come home to after some full-day adventures.

    Welcome to Höfði! We offer a cosy summerhouse in a stunning location in Dalvik, surrounded by the Svarfadardalur Nature Reserve! Hàr, “The Highest”, is a summerhouse that has wheelchair facilities and can accommodate up to 5 people (2 single beds in a room, a single and a french size bed in another room). The cottage has a well equipped kitchen, a nice living room and a bathroom. Outside there is a terrace with hot tube, barbecue, table and chairs. Wi-Fi and TV available.
    This is the place where whale watching excursions start. Great walking trails depart from this area too, and a lot of them are connected to the bird watching activity in the Nature Reserve. Enjoy the northern lights in winter or the midnight sun in summer… you’ll never forget it!
  • Lorenzo is a super kind and very fast answering host. We also loved his place, which is lovely and comfortable. I would highly recommend to visit his place if you are in the region. :)

    Lilla2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very beautiful place with a stunnig view. The check in by ourself was very easy, very good comunication with the host, very easy to spot the place on google map and a very cosy livingroom. We had nothing to complain about because everything was as we expected to be.

    Vlad2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Spent two nights at this cottage and loved the views, the cosy comforts and location as we did a great whale watching tour just minutes away in Dalvik. Place is older than other cottages we have stayed during our stay in Iceland and slower wi-fi at times but overall a nice stay in a beautiful setting!

    Navjot2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • The view was fantastic. The hottub made it very relaxing after a long day of exploring Iceland. Great communication!

    John2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such an incredible view of the mountains! Lorenzo was an incredible host. Very cozy and easily accessible from the main road. We will definitely try and come back in the winter for Northern Lights!

    Brennan2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

    The "Old Farm House" is 104 years old, very charming and romantic 28 sqm cottage, sleeps 4 people (five for families with 3 kids/youngsters). Good sofa bed in living room, mattresses on a loft, kitchen, small bathroom with shower, tv and free Wifi.
    Original old style but renovated. A cottage with history in a beautiful area of Dalvík village. Sofa bed in living room, matresses on a loft. Kitchen, bathroom with shower, tv, free wifi. Floor thermal heating.
    We love our village and the surrounding area. Beautiful valleys, black sand beach near the cottage, Eyjafjörður fjord and the charming Arctic ocean outside the fjord! Go horseback riding in the valley, see whales swim just outside Dalvík, visit Grímsey island and the Arctic Circle, enjoy hundreds of birds in the nature reserve nearby or just relax in the hot tub or the local swimming pool after a day of hiking one of many very nice hiking routs around!
  • Bjani is an amazing host. Very friendly. We enjoyed staying in the old farmhouse which was wonderfully quirky. We enjoyed hearing the history behind it. We enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. Also had good coffee, hot chocolate and cake at the coffee shop and a good meal at Gregor’s restaurant. We went all the way to Akeyuri for Whale watching which was unnecessary as Dalvík also does this. Highly recommended.

    Lisa2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second stay at Bjarni’s cottages. It’s a great hopping off point for North Iceland adventures. Cozy and clean with or without kids. Bjarni always has the hot tub and sauna ready. The cottages are walking distance to trails, the local playground, restaurants, coffee shop and grocery. Also walking distance to his great cafe and the whale watching meeting point. On top of that Bjarni is always very helpful and responsive. I will stay here again.

    Katie2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • A place full of history and personal touch. Superstar host that goes above and beyond. Definitely return for a future stay.

    Kameka2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Bjarni accommodation is simply unique. An old house with all its charm but also with all the facilities (besides jacuzzi). In the center of Dalvík, very quiet, with gas station just in front and 5 minutes from the trips to Grímsey and whale sightings. Just perfect!

    Sara2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the cutest little cabins we stayed in, with much love to detail and full of history! Cozy at its best! Will definitely recommend it to my friends! The cafe down the road owned by the hosts is also incredibly cute and quirky and has the most delicious fish soup! Highly recommended!

    Stephanie2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Cutest cottage ever. Our family of 4 found it cozy...my teen boys enjoyed the loft. You must stop in to Bjarni's cafe...fish soup is to die for along with bread and salad, it warmed the soul after a long day of travel. Cottage is just a few blocks from his cafe...quiet area w hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed as well. Thank you!!

    Christian2017-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Bjarni's old farmhouse is a lovely little place with a lot of charm. It was clean, the bed very comfortable and the hot tub was ready for us. Bjarni and Heida are very sympathic, kind and helpful. Bjarni was always friendly and supportive, even when he was stressed by taking care of many other guests. We also enjoyed our time in their cafe "Gisli, Erikur, Helgi". It is a unique place and you won't see many places like this. Also the staff is very friendly. I can recommend this place to anyone, who wants to leave the path of a hotel standard room and enjoys different perspectives of creative people.

    Bernd2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Would recommend this place anytime. The cottage was very cozy and clean, perfect to stay a couple of days to recharge your batteries. Bjarni and Heiða were so kind and helpful. And we absolutely loved dinner at their kaffihús. We would love to come back!

    Benjamin2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. We booked last minute Bute erupting was ready when we arrived. The room was clean and cozy, and the common area is fantastic. It’s got everything you could need, tea, coffee, etc. and there’s a kitchen next door, and a thermal pool. The ride out is on a nice road for the most part. The owner is a painter and her artwork is very striking. I really enjoyed my stay here.

    Jolie2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little bed and breakfast. I really love the view of the place and its seclusion was beautiful. Everyone was very kind and generous. There's also beautiful art in random spots of the house. Only complaint was that the hot tub was closed during my stay but that was due to cold weather and high winds. Which is very understandable. They also offer drinks, beer and wine too but it was room temperature. I would highly recommend this place for sure as those two issues were extremely minor.

    Karina2019-09-18T00:00:00Z

    Akureyri, Iceland

    Small double bedroom at an old Icelandic farm, Tjörn, surrounded by beautiful nature, hiking trails and birdwatching paradise. The room is located in the newly refurbished basement. There is a communal toilet, shower and sauna, located in the hallway. There is also a communal cooking/sitting area. Tjörn is an old church farm in Dalvíkurbyggð in Svarfaðardalur. The farm is located west of the valley about 5 km within Dalvík and about 40 km from Akureyri.
    The farm has belonged to our family since 1915. It's situated in a beautiful landscape, lake, river, hillside and ocean view. Kristján, who lives at the farm with his wife Kristjana, is a hiking guide and knows the mountains here better then anyone. So during the summer and autumn season, guided hiking trips are available. From September to April there we are spoilt with amazing northern lights/stargazing opportunities and in the winter this area is ideal for cross country skiing and mountain skiing.
    Svarfaðardalur is a large and densely populated valley that flows between high mountains from Dalvík to Eyjafjörður to the west. It is a part of the municipality Dalvíkurbyggð.
  • Good place, comfortable.

  • Unique experience of sleeping in a van with views of the mountains and the water !! Eygló, as a guest worthy of the name, offered us a real room in the building because we could be cold! It was very nice of him, but we still appreciated the van (extra heating and big duvet present, there were only our pajamas)! Breakfast very good too!

    Paul2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the closest van to the B&B and it was amazing! Right outside your side door is a wonderful view and hot tub! Inside was cozy and warm with plenty of space for 2 people. The gift shop in the B&B is stocked with wonderful handmade goods from local artists at much better prices then you will find in shops. We didn't get to go on the elf tour, but wish we had more time to check it out.

    Akureyri, North Iceland, Iceland

    You will have the whole apartment with a private bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Remember to bring groceries with you as there is no shop in the village.
    The adress is Aðalgata 8 in Hauganes but airbnb did not recognise it so its registered in Dalvik. Hauganes is a friendly small fishing village of 140 inhabitants on the west side of Eyjafjörður in North Iceland. It lies 2 km. from the main road to Dalvík/Ólafsfjörður/Siglufjörður and lies 12 km. from Dalvik and 30 km. from Akureyri.The apartment is in a two apartment house. The apartment is 70 m2 on two floors,in in the north end of the house and stands next to the sea with a beautiful view in all directions. It can be said that the view is one of the advantages of the apartment. The house is built about 1950 and has been extensively refurbished. The second floor is an open space with living room, kitchen and TV room, where there is a sofa bed for two. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms and a bath. The rooms accommodate two each room. There is a grocery store a swimming pool and places where you can buy grilled food and hamburgers in Dalvík. Hauganes is situated in beautiful countryside and has a small harbour. Two whale whatching boats are situated there and cruises are availeble most mornings and you are 99% certain to see a whale. On some days you can even see whales from the living room window. Árskógssandur is another small village 5 km. from Hauganes. Its a nice hike over there on a qiet country road (the road to Brimnes farm and over a small walking bridge)
  • This is a lovely home with everything you need to launch an authentic Icelandic experience from. Beautiful ocean views with dolphins, and when strong storms come, it is quite impressive! Ólafur was very helpful everytime we needed assistance.

  • Definitely one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had! Great place and fantastic hospitality from Ólafur. Well equipped and in great shape with a personal touch. I can really recommend this place for people who visit northern Iceland.

  • It was our second stay in Ólafurs beautiful and cozy house. In June 2013 was our first visit and this time we came back to enjoy the colder season. The view out of the window is really stunning and to our delight we had the pleasure to observe the northern lights three evenings of this week right in front of the house. The house itself is clean and wonderful. We appreciate its spot at the northern coast and the tasteful and authentic interior. We felt very comfortable and made some nice trips in the north. It’s really a highlight to spend time in this part of the world and in Ólafurs house. Thanks again!

  • Very nice house, directly by the sea. The decor has been lovingly decorated with many details from the area. Pretty pieces of furniture were made from old parts: vanity in the bathroom, saloon table, storage in laundry room, ... Unfortunately, we locked ourselves out on arrival! Key and cell phone were inside, we went outside and nothing more. Luckily, 7ns has been able to help the neighbor with spare keys! Thank you so much!

    Andrea2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ólafur’s place was amazing! The space was great and the location was unbeatable. We’ve been on a couple trips to Iceland now and this place was our favorite by far! It was clean and felt very authentic. And being in the small village of Hauganes made it feel all the more “local”. I canny recommend Ólafur’s place enough!

    Chris2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • You will love this cute place right on the water with spectacular views. We loved the heated bathroom floor and the big shower head. We could not stop exclaiming about the views. The kitchen is stocked with every tool you need including some condiments. There were plenty of towels also. The big double bed is very comfortable and all was very clean.

    These two beautiful apartments are located on our amazing farm. The view you have out of the apartment you're in is the best view you can ask for. Surrounded by horses, fresh air and icelandic nature you can't help but feel relaxed and at home. And to top it all of, you have access to the best water in the world, which comes straight from our mountain called Staðarhnjúkur. You are looking at the apartment on the left side, apartment A
  • We stayed in several Air Bnb’s during our 10 day trip around the ring road and this was our absolute favorite! Perfect spot to see the Northern Lights and beautiful mountain scenery as well. We walked the stables and petted the beautiful horses. They have a few dogs and they just loved on us then were gone lol it was great! And they gave us eggs from their chickens for breakfast. They were so good! Such a great experience. If my husband and I ever go to Iceland again this will be a stop for sure. Wish we could of stayed a day longer. Loved this place, the people, and the town.

  • What a lovely, special place. Beautiful and spotless. Ólafía is a wonderfully kind host and she’s building a sauna next to the cabin—I hope I get to come back!

    Kiefer2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We spent an amazing time on Ólafía's farm. We got fresh eggs from her for breakfast and had much fun playing with her dogs. The cabin is cozy, very well equipped and very clean.

    Daniel2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • My expectations were exceeded. It is a beautiful property with great views of the countryside. Very well located for day trips or just relaxing.yThe hosts were very welcoming. Would book the accommodation on the next Iceland trip again and again.

    Vanessa2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at the farm house. We had beautiful mountains behind us and loved seeing the animals on the property. The cottage was clean and cozy.

    Danielle2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clean. Cosy. Interesting!

    Jieli2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Such gracious hosts- Ólafía and Andrea helped guide us to her beautiful farm at the base of the mountains just outside of Akureyri when our gps failed. Our room was situated at the base of the mountain with spectacular views in all directions. The room was cozy and well done with a small kitchen to suit our needs. Interacting with the sweet animals on the farm topped off our wonderful stay. Ólafía challenged us to climb the mountain to sign her guest book, but alas, we ran out of time. Next time we will make it to the top!

  • It's been my third time staying at Ingolfur place and from here you can see how amazing the place is. The house is located infront of the Atlantic ocean and you will get amazing Seaview from the dining table. The house has all the amazing amenities to make the stay more comfortable and the hot tub is definitely not to be missed after a long day exploring around the northern Iceland.

  • The apartment is great & very clean. Every room came with bathroom, so we do not have to queue for our turns. The whole apartment was warm & cozy. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood with great views of ocean. We had a little problem finding the exact location, as our google map always showed that we had reached the house, but in fact, it was further down the road. But then, it was night & raining, so we did not have a clear view of the house. Anyway, we had a great stay!

    Elsie2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very modern and has everything for a good stay during your visit to the northern region . It's my second time to this house and I already fell in love with the hospitality Ingolfur offer. Definitely recommended for future traveller

    Jx2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a very calm small town facing the Atlantic sea. The house has a complete kitchen utensils for those who wish to prepare meals , comfortable bed, washer and dryer, hot tub and plenty to bathroom for bigger group. Definitely recommended to those who wish to experience the local Icelandic town in a luxury way.

    Jx2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice accommodation near Akureyri, by the sea! The accommodation is super clean and well equipped. We were greeted by the host very nice and have got tips for excursions. Absolute highlight was the jacuzzi! Each room has its own small bathroom, which is very convenient. We'll be back!

  • Amazing place. Been traveling thru Iceland and this was my 4th place to stay and by far the best. Stayed for 5 nights, saw the wales, wrote some poetry, enjoyed the hottub, had great hikes, sleeped very good and went several times to the swimming pool (37 degrees). Sela is really a place full of character. Great hosts!

    Arjen2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, tranquil setting. The property has an incredible view of the fjord as well as the valley all around. Swany and Petur are wonderful hosts and will make you feel like you are home. I highly recommend booking here.

    Scott2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • I came across this place by chance – and had a hard time moving out again. If you're looking for peace and calmness of mind, for early morning swims in the ocean, just down the field, for a cosy bed in a converted horse stable, with a lullaby of the sea – check in with Petúr and Swany, who will welcome you warmheartedly and make you feel at home. I wish to be back one day!

    Diana2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! We strongly recommend staying here. Petur and Swany are amazing hosts, and made us feel very welcomed. The place is built and designed by them, everything is hand made and gives you a special and warm atmosphere that just makes you want to stay there longer. The views of the fjord and the small village nearby are amazing, sometimes we could also see whales from a distance. It's about 30 min drive from Akureyri, and 10 min drive from Dalvik (a small town with a nice cafe and also a supermarket if you need to buy something). We are very happy that we got the chance to meet Petur and Swany, and we would love to come back again!

    Avia2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Swany is a kind lady, very positive. She smiles always!!! I felt so comfortable in her house, I really recommend not only for the amazing view but for the experience. The hot pot outside is one of the best things .

    Giulia2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place!

    Tomas2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous (incredibly decorated by Swany) property in an amazing location; we were looked after very well by Swany and Petur, and the kids loved Blacke the dog. Highly recommended for a very comfortable base to explore the north and Lake Myvatn. We wIll be back!

    Tanya2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a comfortable stay, experienced the hospitality that Hauganes has to offer We would love to stay at Sela the next time we are around. Petur & Swany went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

  • The best Airbnb place I've stayed at. Petur and Swany are so welcoming, the place is absolutely stunning, and the environment is beautiful. Love it

    Chris2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • If I could give this place 10 stars I would. Swany and Peter both greeted me at the door. They are both so friendly. My room was cozy. Everything was super clean. They had an entire kitchenat my disposal. Its located right by the ocean. I woke up to ducks and birds by my window. They even have whale watching within walking distance and you get a discount for staying at Selá. If you're looking for a hot spring they have their own geothermal hot tub that you can use at any time. They even have an adorable black labrador that is so friendly. He accompanieddown by the ocean a number of times. I wish I could've spent my whole trip there. I highly recommend if you're going to be in Nothern Iceland!

    Cassie2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation, we had relaxing days there and will gladly come back.

    Helene2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Accomodation was brilliant: everything worked and was clean with good facilities including excellent wifi, good value, host helpful and informative but also left me alone to enjoy my holiday (which was what I was looking for). All in all a very pleasant experience.

    John2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. It was perfect for everything we needed. Highly recommend.

    Sara2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Petur & Swany's SELA Guesthouse was incredibly more than we expected. We booked quickly as it was in the region we wanted to explore and didn't think much more about it until we arrived. The amenities of their place - including large kitchen, comfortable rooms, stylish furnishings, and their over-the-top hospitality made this a very special place. Also, the views from the front door are overwhelming, the little town in walking distance is quaint, and the geothermal hot pots cannot be beat! It seems that most other guests we met here had stayed before and were coming back. Some of them said it was their favorite place to stay in Iceland, and I have to agree! We look forward to hopefully returning again in the future and bringing friends and family with us! Thanks for a wonderful stay at SELA!

    Liliana2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is really a very special place. I loved just watching the fjord view each day. Be aware you are pretty isolated and though a bus runs once a day better to have a car.
