The van is a vintage made up family camper. Econoline has taken us on adventures in all of Iceland trough icy rivers and snowstorms as well as along the beautiful coastline. When you stay in the van for a night you might hear some of it´s amazing stories.
The van is a basic accommodation and does not provide luxury but you get privacy and a beautiful view to the valley and you can see the sun setting in the fjord. Perfect for someone looking for a special place to stay. Arnarnes is located 20 minutes drive from Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland.
There is room for one or two persons, with a comfortable bed (120 cm wide) and space for sitting. A heater and lights make the night comfortable. Outside the van is a small deck where you can enjoy the view.
Shared toilet is located in the building next door. Shared bathroom and kitchen is located in the main building. For pictures from the kitchen and bathroom, see the other listings.

We enjoyed the Eygló's van! First of all, Eygló is very comprehensive and careful person. She fully considered my health condition and took special care for me.
The bed was compfy and the view just amazing!
The only drawback is that the shower is only in her house and is an extrafee.
It was so nice to live the van experience. The van is big enough, comfortable, fully equipped and with nice panoramic view. You can also use kitchen and bathroom in main building so you won't miss anything. Always nice to know local people like Eygló and her guests. Highly recommended.
The van is excellent. The best deal I came across in iceland. Stunning location and great hosts.
We had a great time at Eyglo's place. The van is very cute. It was a great experience to sleep here. Our host was very friendly and answered all our questions. The van and all the facilities are very clean. We really wished we could stay longer! :)
Our stay in the van was just great! We used it as a break from our roadtrip through Iceland. The bed was comfortable and the Van was big and warm. We had a warm welcome with some tea served in the Van(!).
The van is beautiful! Great! The view is super, and the van is cozy and warm. The people in the house are frendly and helpful, everything is clean and perfect. A very positie experience!
Le van est très bien aménagé et nous y avons passe une nuit très agréable. Les hôtes sont également très sympathiques et la vue véridiquement fabuleuse! Il faut prendre le bus 78 et demander au chauffeur de s'arrêter à Arnarnes. Jolies balades autour de la maison.
We felt very welcome and had a great time in the van.
Eyglo is really hospitable, friendly and knows a lot about her area!
The van is cool and comfortable, the breakfast with Eyglos homemade bread and jam is delicious!
We can really recommend it!
Eygló was a wonderful host and very welcoming! My husband and I stayed in the Vintage Van on a cold and windy night. The van rocked a little in the wind and we definitely needed to use our eye masks as there were a lot of places for light to pass through. Other then that, we were kept very warm with a heater that's in the van, clean bathrooms were near by and easy to access, and Eygló even sent a special package of hot water and tea to the van at night. Breakfast was 10 out of 10 - hands down! We were offered healing organic tea, coffee, boiled eggs from a farmer down the road, homemade bread and jams, cookies, and smoked salmon that her husband caught and smoked himself - wow, what a treat! This was one of the more unique places we stayed while in Iceland (offering a great view!!) and it turned out to be a very nice and memorable experience!
So good, I decided to stay an extra couple of nights!
Eygló is a wonderful host, and the scenery is stunning, especially when the sun is out! The breakfasts are excellent, especially the home made bread and jam, an I highly reccomend the dinners too.
The van is basic, but comfortable, and there is plenty of privacy. It is so quiet at night, you can hear your own heartbeat!
If you are looking for great scenery and hospitality, this is the place for you
