About this listing
Cozy little family home in north of Iceland.
We love sharing our home up north of Iceland with guests from all over the world . Our plan is to make our guest feel as comfortable as possible so every year we make some new adjustments to the house. Like new windows and doors and new BBQ to go along with the full equipped kitchen.
Now this year is our plan to put in a hot tub in the garden. So after a long trip you can relax in the hot outdoor tub with the stars or the northern lights dancing in the sky.
The house has one bedroom with a king size bed. And in the living room there are to pull out beds. Our house is comfortable for family of max four people. Usually it is rented out for couples with one or two kids.
Saga - Siglufjörður is situated in the north part of Iceland. A beautiful town that was known as the herring capital of Iceland in the fifties. Back then it was a colorful and lively town with a gold rush-like atmosphere and it still has that charm to it. Signs of its past glory and the saga of those years can be seen in an interesting museum in town.
Nature - The nature surroundings are known for its beauty and therefore perfect for outdoor activities. Siglufjörður is a skier's paradise it has outstanding slopes and surrounding valleys are great for cross-country skiing as well. The fjords and valleys are famous for bird watching and hiking, and have number of marked hiking trails. There are many interesting places to visit – both in town and in the area.

The ski slopes of Skarðsdalur are without a doubt among the best in Iceland. Three lifts carry skiers up to the slopes; two combined lifts, a disc lift and a rope tow, wich make the total length of 1500 meters. The third and highest lift measures 530 meters in length with a vertical rise of about 180 meters, and a capacity of about 550 persons per hour. The top end of the lift is over 650 meters above sea level. A fin ski lodge with good facilities for visitors. The skiing area is equipped with flood lighting
