About this listing
This is just a most wonderful apartment overviewing the fjord. While sitting in the jacuzzi or relaxing in the garden and looking at the fjord you can listen at the same time to the trees swaying in the wind.
The apartment has a lot of charme, the interior is all new and has been designed with love to the details. There are 3 bedrooms with high quality matresses.
The veranda is on the wind protected side of the house and invites you to spend long barbecue midsummer nights outside.
If you walk out of the house around the corner you are entering the botanic garden which is unique in its kind on this latitude. To the other side you walk in 3 minutes down to the beautiful Old Town with its beautiful cafés and wooden buildings, on the way there is a perfect playground for children, just 250 metres from the house.
This is a very charming apartment, cared for with love for the detail. The dining room and the living room are connected through a lovely archway.

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.

The apartment was so lovely and cozy. It had everything we needed for our stay. It was located in a great location and had amazing views. The linens were exceptionally clean.
Andreas was readily available to help us with anything to improve our stay. He was a great communicator.
We highly recommend this place and really enjoyed our stay. We can't wait to return!
We spent 3 nights in Ulrika & Andreas house and everything went well. Ulrika came just after we arrived to ensure we had all what we needed. Really appreciated! We enjoyed the sun on the terrace where we could eat! The city center is 5 min close (walking). Nice stay in Akureyri !!
Fabulous apartment in Akureyri with everything we needed. Ulrika popped around to make sure we had settled in. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone thinking of staying.

About the Host, Andreas
I live here at 66° North with my wonderful wife, 4 huskies and 5 chickens. North Iceland is the destination of my dream. 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.
