Three apartments, architectural house in north Iceland.
This is one of the apartments in Villa Lola, located in Vaðlaheiði near Akureyri, the capital of north Iceland.
The villa is located in the exclusive residence area of Akureyri. This location offers you a quiet atmosfair and a touch of the nature. You will have a view over the bay and Akureyri . In the winter time you can enjoy the aurora borealis and in the summer time the midnight sun.
Akureyri is just 10 min. drive. In Akureyri you have all kinds of shops, restaurantsand many cafés, different galleries and there are lots of professional music concerts as well all summer music festival.
In the studio there is a living area with kitchenette (no owen) and bathroom on the first floor, then there is a loft where there is a double bed. Towels and bedlinen are inclunded in the price. We offer a extra bed and baby bed on request.
There is an easy access not only to the center of Akureyri but also all the interesting sites surrounding.
From the house you can take a hiking tours, you can walk up to Sulur, the mountain above Akureyri, you can hire horses for daily tours or a midnight sun ride, visit naturally heated swimming pool, you can hire kayakas or join professional diving, play golf on the northern most 18 whole golf ground, go on a angling trip, have a walk along the fjord and then I like to tell you about the birthplace and home of heli skiing in Iceland, the Troll Peninsula in the country just below the Arctic Circle. 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 and snowshoewalks or fishing troght ice.
And then it is very popular to drive the road skirting the beautiful western shore of the Eyjafjordur Fjord, visit the magnificent waterfalls, Goðafoss and Dettifoss, Dimmuborgir, Mývatn, the Grand Canyon of Jökulsárgljúfur and whale watching in Húsavík. It is also possible to take an organized day trip from Akureyri to the island of Grimsey, which straddles the Arctic Circle.
It is easy to get to Akureyri!
Icelandair is offering flights to Akureyri. So it is as well just a 45 Min. flight from Reykjavik downtown to Akureyri. It is only a 7km drive from the airport to our house. If you are driving, Akureyri is on the ringroad and is a approx. 5 to 6 hours drive from Reykjavik. To stay in vaðlaheiði you need a car.
The property offers a quiet position and a great view.
It is a easy access to the center of Akureyri and the beautiful places in its surroundings.
This was my favorite spot in my road trip around Iceland. It was a dream come true. Since it was winter, a 4wd was required to get to it but once we walked in we were in aw. We made a delicious meal in the kitchen, watched a film on the tv with my jump drive, and we saw the Northern Lights for 30 mins after late night drinks we made. The view of Akureyri across the lake is stunning and a great photo spot near the cliff. We cannot wait to return to Iceland to this spot. Only cons were no hair dryer available but this wasn't too big a deal. Akureyri is an amazing town and I fully recommend this place and studio.
This is a fantastic place in an amazing location. It was extremely cosy and warm which we were glad of in the snow and gales!
Thank you to the tractor driver for pulling us out of the snow!
Would love to stay here in the summer.
A very nice stay. very nice location close to Akureyri and teh appartment itself is stylish, modern and clean. Unfortunately the weather was very bad indeed (very strong blizzard) which made reaching the property impossible (closest usable parking was maybe 700 metres up a hill). We would have appreciated communication from the owner that the property was currently unreachable, as our car got stuck in deep snow. Overall though, a pleasant stay, and Akureyri is a fantastic town to explore the north of iceland from.
An amazing cabin overlooking the city. About 4K from town, even close me to a nice gas station. The view in the evening and the morning were unreal. Highly recommended.
길을 찾기 어려워하자 우리를 근처의 주유소까지 픽업하러 나와주었고, 매우 반갑게 맞아주었습니다! 집은 너무나 멋졌고 오로라도 짧게 볼 수 있었어요. 침대는 아늑하고 2명이 지내기 정말 알맞았습니다. 주방도구가 잘 구비되어 있어 쉽게 요리해먹을 수 있었습니다. 무엇보다 다정한 호스트의 친절과 여유가 그립습니다.
This is a magical place to stay for your visit in the north. The location is nothing short of amazing, as is the view of Akureyri. Highly recommend to everyone!
