Descrizione

L'alloggio

By main road #1. Outstanding views. Remote. Hikes at the doorstep.

Welcome to the rustic 70's. This spacious attic apt comes with a separate entrance, cosy bedroom (two 120 cm beds), bathroom with shower and a large sitting room with single sofa beds (70 cm). Decorated in the traditional Icelandic 19th century turf house style ("baðstofa", a farm's living/sleeping room).

The attic has a "kitchenette" as shown on photos, where you can prepare breakfast and simple meals, but is not suitable for serious cooking since there is only one source of water in the apartment. For a complete list of appliances see Guest Access.

Linens and towels provided.

This is our second home. We rent the attic out during summer months. There may be guests in the main apartment and we ask you to be considerate and not make much noise.

Accesso ospiti

The attic is accessed via outdoor spiral staircase. Separate entrance and access to the whole attic apartment.

Privacy. The attic comes with space for preparing your breakfast, with fridge, microwave and coffee maker, coffee, tea and sugar.

We highly recommend a community thermal pool with panoramic views within 15 min drive is open until late night during summer.

Interazione con gli ospiti

We invite you to tell us a bit about yourself when you request to book, your group, your trip and your expectations. This helps us find out whether we are a match. We are experienced world travelers - and hosts. We love meeting new people and exchanging ideas and experiences. Since we travel ourselves we may not always be around for you, but when we are available we are more than happy to act as your local guide, escort you if you wish and to share stories, and equally; a bottle of wine. We want you to be comfortable in our home - and we also respect you privacy. When we are away, we make arrangements for you stay.

Restaurants: Restaurant with excellent food and service at Engimýri Guesthouse 2 km away, open May to September. We can also give you advice on some great culinary experiences in Akureyri.

Let us know what time of the day you will be arriving, in order for us to accommodate for you arrival/meet and greet you.

Il quartiere

Set in a privileged location in the north of Iceland, in one of the most picturesque valleys of Iceland. Just off the main road between Reykjavik and Akureyri, still remote and calm.

Site of Outstanding Natural Beauty - protected landscape. Secluded in farmlands, even if just by the main road. Endless hiking opportunities at the doorstep. Mountains and hills, (private!) waterfalls and lakes.

This place is for you nature lovers, hikers and dreamers, or you who just need a time off to rest for a while and stay off the beaten track.

Anything you want to ask? We are happy to help.

Our advice to you who are traveling in Iceland for the first time we borrow from Canadian photographer Stan Klasz in an interview with Stuck in Iceland:

"Apart from doing research on some of the great Icelandic travel guides, I think building extra time into a planned itinerary on a daily basis is so important. The weather is ever changing and if you build too tight of a schedule you will miss so many opportunities. I found that every turn presents something beautiful and to take the time to explore is paramount. Keep an open mind and be adaptable to change on the go."

Altre cose da evidenziare

Here you are able to switch off and relax - you can go hiking and enjoying the pristine nature away from hich tech devices, or just sit in the living room and admire the extraordinary views, or maybe read about the admired Icelandic poet and naturalist who was born here 200 years ago and made this landscape part of his immortal work, now translated into English.

Please respect the tranquil atmosphere we have created.

siamo stati due notti nella casa di Sif e Oli per poter visitare i dintorni e il Myvatn. bella la posizione panoramica nella valle che lungo la statale 1 arriva da ovest verso Akureyri. abbiamo apprezzato che ci fosse un impianto stereo con degli album da ascoltare un po' diversi dal solito. Si trovano anche giochi di società (in inglese). Unica pecca, i letti sono abbastanza vecchi e scomodi. Sif e Oli molto gentili!

Io e mia moglie siamo stati molto bene nella farmhouse di Sif e Oli. La sua ubicazione è ideale per visitare una buona parte del nord Islanda, e siamo piuttosto vicini ad Akureyri. L'intero primo piano era a nostra disposizione e Sif è stata molto disponibile ed ospitale, garantendo al contempo l'assoluta privacy. Da consigliare soprattutto a chi preferisce non cambiare troppe volte casa, anche se magari si fa qualche chilometro in più con l'auto.

We were originally going to stay in the smaller building but we're moved to the attic because of the cold. The place was wonderful. Very spacious and had everything we needed for a quick stay. I wish we could have stayed longer. The views were lovely. We also came very late but sif and oli were very accommodating to us.

A few days here makes it difficult to return to "civilization". Private, so scenic, great hiking across the road on several routes, hidden lake, snow capped peaks, it's all good in the Attic!!

We chose this farmhouse loft as a secluded getaway in Northern Iceland, and we were not disappointed. It's very cozy, and adequate for making simple meals (breakfast and lunch). Everything was as described, and we were happy to discover there is WiFi, even though it was not listed in the amenities. The full sound system (CD, vinyl record player, and AUX) and the Electone organ in the attic was a nice treat! The house is situated in one of the most beautiful valleys in Iceland, with plenty of hiking on the property and nearby farms. Just ask Oli for more hiking info. Sif & Oli are a lovely couple who are more than accommodating and very helpful. If you want your own quiet secluded piece of Iceland, I recommend staying here.

Hi, we are Sif and Oli, a couple of well travelled professionals.

Yes ;) we absolutely LOVE to travel. We have exchanged homes all over the world for the last decade, and we are not nearly there yet ;) We cherish the philosophy of exchanging homes with people that can teach you something about the world and yourself. We have met most of our guest and try to do so whenever we have the opportunity. Some of our guests have visited multiple times and many of them have become our friends.

We have four grown up kids and our work is in Europe and in Africa. We are nature lovers and we think its important to protect the environment. We do all kinds of outdoor activities, recently mostly sailing.

We will be happy to have you at our very special place in the north of Iceland. We have lived in Iceland, Belgium and Spain but we also travel for work. Now, when kids have left home, we might travel even more, work and pleasure.
