Interaction with Guests
Being professional guides, we offer our guests information about the town Seydisfjordur. We point out places of interest, recreation, and help them any way we can. A guided tour in the east can be provided, but that costs extra!
The house is in the slobs of Strandatindur, with Botnar just above, the view to the ocean and the harbor and the view to the Fjardarheidi mountain, Bjolfur mountain, Strandatindur mountain, the wild nature just above the garden. Nice neighbors, the wonderful brook just by the house. Some trees in the steep slopes of Strandatindur. Just beautiful!
Just down the hill we have the bus terminal for Airport Egilsstadir-Seydisfjordur-airport Egilsstadir.

About the Host, Johanna
We live in a two-storey house. We are in our fifties. My husband Bergur is a marine engineer and I´m a principal in a Kindergarten.
Bergur loves going fishing and plays golf. I teach icelandic literature and music with children. I enjoy singing, reading, cooking, touring and enjoy the Icelandic nature. I love France and I've been there quite often, because of my education and connection to some teachers in France. Bergur loves Spain and the sun. When we travel, we enjoy getting to know the pepole and their culture. We have a big family and when they come for a visit, it is always great fun!
