From the cabin 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 kayaks 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 snowshoe walks or fishing through 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 cabin. If you are driving, Akureyri is on the ringroad and is a approx. 5 hour 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 centre of Akureyri and the beautiful places in its surroundings. Guest Access There is a living area with kitchen (no owen) and bathroom and double bed. Towels and bedlinen are included in the price. We offer a extra bed and baby bed on request. There is a free WiFi. Interaction with Guests You are welcome to contact me and ask questions, maybe I can make your stay in Akureyri more pleasant and give you a wider insight to what the north of Iceland has to offer. The Neighborhood A peaceful, beautiful and calm place in the countryside. Getting around Since this is a couple of minutes out of town there is not a public transit, but a rental car sure will help you get around and also take a better look at other remarkable places around the north of Iceland as well.
