Beautiful Fjord views by day...Northern lights at night!!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Nollur Farm was amazing! The property affords amazing views from every room.

Looking out the floor-to-ceiling windows, we felt that we were aboard a stationary cruise ship!

We watched the sheep & the tidal changes during the day & the gorgeous Northern lights every night!

Also, highly recommend whale watching nearby! Amazing!

We hope to return again one day soon!

spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved, loved this house!! In fact, we may have moved in permanently! Don't look in the cabinets!

The setting is spectacular. You can watch the northern lights from bed. Although there are tons of windows, you have complete privacy.

Do not stay here if you like peace and quiet. The only sound was the baaing of sheep or the honking of geese. Although there were other guests staying on the grounds, we heard no one.

The pictures do not do this property justice. It is beautiful and meticulously maintained.

We can't wait to come back!

Nothing short of spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot imagine a more peaceful, beautiful place to stay in the Akureyri area. We had everything we needed and more - a well stocked home with an impossibly gorgeous bay view. This is part of a working farm, so one can visit the sheep nursing their kids in the barn. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Northern Iceland! The photos don't even do it justice.

A beautiful home on the fjord!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent the past 4 days at this lovely fjord side home! We felt at home the minute we stepped inside the house. This newly built vacation home has all the amenities that one expects. The view is so amazing that it was difficult for us to leave the house. The beds are amazingly comfy ... The hot tub is unique and fabulous and the view of the northern lights on our first night was an added surprise that we were hoping would happen. The house is very roomy ... And the kichen had everything we needed. You will need to purchase spices and.sugar - no problem :-) we can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Highly recommend! Thank you for everything! M & M

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We decided to split our trip to Iceland up in 3 - and this was our second place after 3 nights in Reykjavík. Arrival arrangements went really well. We stopped in the local 'Bonus' supermarket and called to say we would be roughly 30 minutes away and a time was agreed. Upon arrival to the house - which was found very easily, we were very happy.

The house is large, well designed and comfortably slept all 6 of us. The design and finish through the property is exceptional and all our children loved the hot tub whilst overlooking the sea and the Northern lights shining above.

I would happily recommend this as a great location to stay as Akureyri as its not far and is also a great hub to use for the North/ North East with some exceptional places to visit nearby - Myvatan etc

We would look forward to visiting this place again sometime soon as there is so much to see and do up this part of Iceland :)

Many thanks

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely incredible stay at the beautiful Kaldbakur house and highly recommend this property to anybody visiting North Iceland.

From start to finish the communication from Carmen, Thomas and Anna-Bara was excellent and always extremely quick, quicker than any other property I have rented. They were extremely helpful and always answered any questions I had regarding the house.

We stayed at this property for a week in late January and drove there from Reykjavik during daylight hours which takes around 6-7 hours depending on the weather. During our drive to Akureyri we experienced all 4 seasons in one day including strong wind, heavy snowfall and zero visibility. Studded tyres on your hire car (and preferably 4WD) are absolutely essential when staying at this property in the winter as certain parts of route 1 can be very bad during storms, particularly Öxnadalsheiði. It's worth keeping an eye on www.road.is to check road conditions before setting off.

Once we reached Akureyri town we called Anna-Bara to let her know we'd be arriving in around 30 minutes. We were greeted by a very pleasant and friendly young lady who showed us around the house and handed the keys over to us. After she left we weren't sure where to find the WiFi password but a quick text to Anna-Bara produced an answer within only a few minutes.

The house itself is spectacular and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The build quality and materials used to build and decorate the house are clearly all of very high standard, including the comfortable beds which were great for a good nights sleep after a long day exploring. The house also has a washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher which make things that little bit easier. Oh, and not to forget the fantastic hot tub outside which is perfect to relax in overlooking the fjord. We were also lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on a few occasions from the house despite the poor weather.

There's plenty of things to do and see in North Iceland, even in the winter time when tourists are few and far between. We were emailed a very handy PDF file which had a few ideas for day trips around the local area. Akureyri City is only a 20 minute drive away and contains a few big supermarkets (Netto/Bonus) which were ideal for buying supplies.

Overall, I couldn't recommend this house highly enough - It's perfect. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
