The view is so spectacular that you might want to just make sure you spent some time right there taking it in ! This spot is about one hour from whale watching in Husavik, birding and hiking in Myvatan .

Amazing views! Gunnar's place was perfect for us for the 3 days we spent exploring Akureyri. Great location to get into town and have dinner or stay in and grill out. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful house over looking Akureyri. Livingroom is wide open and the large glass windows make for a great place to enjoy your morning coffee. Could see the northern lights right out the back door.

This place is amazing! The most beautiful scenery I’ve ever seen that can all be viewed from the living room due to the large windows in the house. It’s amazing. Gunnar was so helpful. Thanks Gunnar!
