There is a bus every day from the capital Reykjavik to Blonduos and from Blonduos to Skagastrond with bus (private car). From Skagastrond you can go to other Villages in the North or to the beautiful town Akureyri. It is best to rent a car, to be able to travel around. If you go by bus to Akureyri, you have to stay over night. Easy to find the route on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), and there is also map here on our airbnb.
If you are traveling in Iceland at wintertime, it is better to rent 4WD.

In the Village Skagastrond, you will find a Grocery store, with food and most things you need (open Mon-Fri 10 AM to 6 PM, Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM, Sunday 12 AM noon to 4 PM). Kiosk with grill - Olis Gas station, Borgin restaurant, golf course (we rent golf set for ISK 4.000), swimming pool (only open in the summertime), art gallery - exhibition, Artun, museum (old house), Djasn og dullery - handmade things and much more.

In the Wintertime you can go Skiing in the mount Tindastoll only 30 minutes away, or go to Hlidarfjall, Akureyri.
Skagastrond is a small village in a beautiful peaceful area. From the cabin is a view over the Village and to the mountains.
Take a walk and enjoy the clean air, the peace and quiet surroundings. The nature is on your doorstep.
You can also walk to the sea shore, watch seals and listen to the birds or take a walk on the cliff/rock Spakonufellshofdi behind the cottage and have a beautiful view over the bay Hunafloi. In summer time the birds has their nest on part of the hill, and can be bit aggressive. You can have a small bamboo stick with you and hold it up. If you want to go fishing, it is no problem to buy licence. Or if you want to go horse riding it is possible to rent a horse in Blonduos. In good weather it is fun and rather easy walk to go to the top of the Mountain Spakonufellsborg. The view is amazing. A marked trail runs to the top of the mountain from the farm Brandaskarð. Or you can walk around the mountain. Spakonufell is one of the most impressive mountain in this area. It is 646 m high. The name of the mountain derives from Thordis the prophetess who lived on a farm of the same name as the mountain, situated by its roots in the 10th century. She was the first person to settle in Skagastrond.
Selavikurtangi is about 40 km north of Skagastrond at Kaldranavik. Just out from the shore at a distance of about 40 - 50 m you can see seals at as they lie sprawled on the reefs and gaze with curiosity into the eyes of the tourists. They can be very numerous.

If you need a good price place to stay in the Reykjavik area, we are renting out private room
