Car: Necessary

A newly built (2010) very modern and spacious house sitting on the southwestern shores of the North Coast’s Eyjafjordur Fjord, one of the most breathtaking fjords in Iceland. Rising up immediately behind the city Akureyri are azure farmlands that slope gently up to basalt mountains where our house is standing. The mountains are capped by snow year round, and in the winter they offer great skiing.

The house is only in a 10 min. drive from Akureyri - the Capital of the North. One of the most extraordinary aspects of Akureyri is its warm climate and although its sits only 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, it has some of the best weather in Iceland. Summer temperatures frequently range in the high 60''s (20°C).

Anywhere else, Akureyri’s population of only 19,000 would probably constitute what most countries call a “small town,” but in Iceland a number like that definitely qualifies Akureyri as a city. It has more than its share of museums, Akureyri is also home to the world’s northernmost botanical garden and 18-hole golf course. Outside the city are numerous opportunities for excursions, the most popular being the road skirting the beautiful western shore of the Eyjafjordur Fjord, the magnificent waterfalls, Goðafoss and Dettifoss, Dimmuborgir, Lake Mývatn and the Grand Canyon of Jökulsárgljúfur. It is also possible to take an organized day trip from Akureyri to the island of Grimsey, which straddles the Arctic Circle.

House equipped with all the modern commodities, veranda and jacuzzi. Close to center of Akureyri where all the services of a modern town can be enjoyed.
