The Space

This completely refurbished house from 1920 is a real treasure. Once a revered local shop it has turned into a unique, precious apartment - the noble lamps and the Swiss stone pine bed are tributes to its fine history.

All furniture and all interior is brandnew, the double bedroom is spacious, the twin bedroom is divided by a folding screen from the living and dining room. You have an amazing view to both sides of the house, from the living room you can see a wonderful garden with a stream purling down and from the kitchen you can view the fjord in only a 100m distance.

The swimming pool, playgrounds for the children, bookstore, restaurants, café houses, bakery as well as groccery stores are all in easy walking distance. It is a truly privileged quiet central location.

Akureyri - the choice for people who like to experience authentic Iceland whilst not missing comfort & the charme of an idyllic small town.
Akureyri is the amazing main town in Northern Iceland and offers all year around lots of attractions in the field of outdoor activities, leisure and art, and above all you enjoy here the midnight sun and the aurora borealis/ Northern lights on 66° North!
You can walk straight up to Sulur, the mountain above Akureyri, you can hire horses for daily tours or a midnight sun ride, enjoy one ot the geothermal hot pools, you can hire kayakas or join professional diving, hire a bicycle, play golf on the northern most 18 whole golf ground, go on a angling trip, have a walk along the fjord and in winter ski or do cross-country skiing in the best ski resort with view of the fjord, amazing! Or dog sledging with our huskies, snowshoewalks & much more.
Akureyri has a lot of charm with its old town and in the many cafés you make a break and enjoy coffee & Icelandic cake.
If you are keen on art, Akureyri offers you different galleries and there are lots of professional music concerts - as well all summer long - a music festival.
Moreover,it is the base to explore the whole of the North with all its attractions, amongst others, it is only a short ride to the waterfall Godafoss & the volcanic area of Myvatn with its volcanoes, bubbling mud pools and the Blue Lagoon of the North. Or you join us on a super jeep tour to the Highland, crossing rivers and enjoy a nature bath in an oasis up in the highland.

It is easy to get to Akureyri!
Icelandexpress has direct flights to Akueyri from Copenhagen in the summer, Icelandair is offering flights from many destinations abroad to Akureyri with a small hop over to a smaller airplane at the international airport in Keflavik/Reykjavik. So it is as well just a 45 Min. flight from Reykjavik downtown to Akureyri. It is only a 2km drive from the cozy airport to our apartments, the transfer is even offered for free for guests staying 5 nights or more. If you are driving, Akureyri is on the ringroad and is a approx. 5 to 6 hours drive from Reykjavik. So you see there is no obstacle on the way to enjoy the North, the fringe of the Arctic!

  • Nice little apartment, excellent location within the main street of Akureyri.
    We used it as a base to visit Myvatn and Godifoss, which are at about 100 km from Akureyri. We greatly appreciated the fully equipped kitchen, which we used to prepare our dinners and breakfasts.

    Recommended.

I would like to give you a warm welcome to the fringe of the Arctic and our cozy & modern apartments. Being a guide, I love to share my passion - may be you would like to do dogsledging, hike, have a nature bath in the Highlands, do yoga or enjoy a wellbeing week - my wife and me have a family run travel agency (Inspiration Iceland) that offers real unique off the beaten track holidays.
