Wonderful place to stay in the country just north of Akureyri. Great hospitality! We saw cool northern lights while standing by the fjord. They also offer horseback trail rides and 4-wheeler tours. Awesome

This guesthouse is a bit outside of town with an amazing view of the fjord/harbor. I am not much of a guesthouse person but we still had a very nice stay. You stay in a small room that has a sink and then there is a shared, comfy common area and shared bathrooms. The bed was very comfortable and the... More

Love love loved Skjaldarvik Guesthouse! The staff was so friendly, they had a fantastic dinner (that was reasonably priced for Iceland) and a glorious hot tub (that was huge, not one of those small awkward-to-share ones) We also did one of their Icelandic horse riding tours. I was anxious, since I've never been on a horse, but the 2 instructors... More

The guesthouse is located out of town but it was the best scenic view. We were greeted by their friendly staff Ms Martina whom gave us a tour of the guesthouse and the room. She even recommended us what we should try on the lobster and lamb fillet for dinner. The staff will call the guests if they spot sightings... More

We stayed here for one night while driving the ring road. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean as was the shared bathrooms. The guesthouse offers a northern lights wake up call which we availed of and we were fortunate to see the lights. The setting is beautiful and the large living... More

We stayed just one night whilst touring on route 1. This was a great place to stay with smart rooms and an excellent restaurant and great staff. Whilst it is shared bathrooms (and there is a rush-hour between 7-8am) it is good that there are sinks in the rooms so at least you can wash our face/do your teeth without... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night during our 10 days trip in Iceland. The place is adorable, clean and the staff is so nice. The hot tub is great after a long day in the car and the location is just outside the city. The breakfast was great and the beds were even better! The only complaint... More

Are you quirky? If not you'll love this place. If you are, you'll TOTALLY love this place! The owners are very creative, with a focus on avant-garde repurposing of everyday items. A couch, made out of suits? Yep, why not. Everything is something. It's an artist's paradise. Complete with local art for sale! (We got a funny fluff ball sheep.)... More

Stayed a night here. Relatively easy to find and get access to. Not too far from akureyri town. They had a nice hot tub overlooking the Iceland sea and mountain to relax after a long day drive. Price was reasonable with breakfast provided. There are walks around the guesthouse too.
