Hamragil provided a perfect base to explore the coast of Northern Iceland. Scenery? Spectacular. Space in the lodge-like setting: Just right. The living room offered views of glacier-covered mountains. The kitchen is well-appointed. Access (key etc.) was easy. We looked forward each day to returning to the solitude of Hamragil, an easy 15- or 20-minute drive from Akureyri. And don't miss the creek that runs along the property, just beyond the birch grove.
As for the basics: The description is indeed accurate. The house was clean. Jon couldn't have been more helpful in making sure we found the house, the key and everything we needed. I'd recommend this to friends, family, colleagues: Anyone who wants a quiet, cheerful and spacious holiday home. Attractions: Lake Myvatyn, of course, and all the waterfalls. But also the scenery right there surrounding Hamragil.
