Dagny was incredibly accommodating to our travel plans. Her place was immaculate and extremely comfortable. We very warmly greeted and the rest of our stay was equally as pleasant. Not to mention, the town of Isafjorour is quite a gem. I would highly recommend spending time there and staying at Dagny's place as it has a perfect central location.
Had a wonderful stay, apartment was very nice and clean. Would definitely recommend if traveling through the west fjords
Beautiful, light, well equipped apartment. Lovely to have eats on arrival. As we were competing in the Fossavatngangen, the invitation to use Hallidor's shop for ski prep was very useful and welcome. Central location to pool and shops, restaurants was fantastic. Dagný and her Mom were so welcoming and perfect English speakers. Loved Isafjordur!
The West Fjords are a magical place and this apartment is an excellent place from which to explore them. It is not only beautifully decorated, but also cozy--felt like a real home, with everything we needed, including lots of coffee and a bowl of fruit left for us. The apartment is well-located--near the center of town, close to an excellent bakery and the local pool, as well as hiking/kayaking (etc) outfitters. Dagny communicated regularly before the visit, so that even though she was out of town when we arrived, I felt like she was there. And her description of Tjörhúsid as the best fish restaurant in the world (which I thought must be an exaggeration) turned out to be true!
This apartment was fantastic! Really spacious and fully equipped. Everything is perfectly set up for guests to know where to find things and how to use all household items. Dagny is great, went out of her way to accommodate for our arrival time and gave us useful travelling advice. Too bad we couldn't stay any longer.
Dagny offers a comfortable and lovingly furnished apartment with a full equiped kitchen (which we unfortunately didn't used). We felt very welcome. Many thanks!
About the Host, Dagny
There are no such thing as a problem. There are only a solutions :-D
I am a gallery owner, glass artist, framer, cabinetmaker and allot of other things. I live in a grate town called Isafjordur along with approximately 3000 other people. I live in a big house along with my husband Halldor and my mother.
We can get in touch with a lot of outdoor enthusiasts such as kayaks, horse-riders and sailing activities. We have our own little fishing boat and we could take you out for a trip. We love skiing. It is only five minutes to the skiing area. If you like to photograph the surroundings we can contact one ore two photographers that can give you some hints.
I have a fully fitted workshop for glass fusing. If you are interesting to stay for a month or so you can send me a line and I can give you an offer for renting the apartment and my workshop. I have two small kilns -50cm x 50cm- and a big one -90cm x 120cm- I have a grinder, driller, and so on for this kind of glass working. The west fjords are an endless source of inspiration any time of the year.
This little town is well known for our music and art. The rock festival "Aldrei fór ég suður" is very popular and held every Easter and the annual music festival and summer courses Við Djúpið are held in the West Fjords of Iceland around summer solstice, offering series of concerts and master classes. The master classes are held in close cooperation with the Iceland Academy of the Arts, and are accredited by it´s Department of Music.
