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.
You can order Breakfast and Dinner in advance.

The van is quite nice and if it is windiy like during my stay you will be gently shaked to sleep :) Eyglo is very helpful, confirmed our spontanious booking quite fast and made a good breakfast next day. Recommendable place.
Accueil chaleureux.Endroit paisible et reposant. Van vintage très confortable. Prix très abordable pour un cadre charmant.
The vintage van was awesome! You have a really nice view on the mountains and fjord. It was also clean and so were the bathrooms. As for using the kitchen we did kind of feel like invaders in their privacy (we got strange looks when coming in with our groceries) so that was kinda weird. We also spend one night in the camper where the heating didnt work.
We had a great but short stay in the van! We only had a short stay because we were between Adventures in Iceland! Very easy to find, clean and comfortable!
The pictures do not do the view justice. Fantastic area. The van was comfortable and warm with the heater provided. Outlets for charging our gear. The only issue I had was the Wi-Fi. It was only available in the main house. After a long day I just wanted to relax and lie down. That being said I would stay here again in a second. Very affordable. Shared bathroom was clean which is always a plus.
The van is comfy, quiet, and unique! We had a lovely time and it is very close to Akureyri! I would recommend to anyone :)
Our stay with Eyglo was the best of many good hosts in Iceland! She is thoughtful and makes fantastic rye bread! The site was stunning-we saw northern lights. The van is comfortable and funky for travellers looking for the off the beaten track experience.

I have lived in the area almost all my life, so I can provide you with a lot of insider information. 15 years ago my husband and I quit farming. I have studied Natural Healing and Aromatherapie. My Healingroom is here on the Farm, so if you feel like it, you can book a treatment.
I speak Icelandic and English, my English writing is not so good yet, so please excuse.
