Definitely the best place and best views of our trip.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this place which is right next to the water high atop a hill where you can see for miles. We stayed in the larger of places, the one with the hot tub. That was such a great treat to visit in the morning and evening just to relax.

You're not that far from Akureyri to get a bit to eat, walk the city and grab some drinks. The place was quiet which we wanted and they are always building on the property trying to make it better. We did have some of the sheep next to us but didn't smell them at all as the place is quartered off pretty well.

If you're looking for a place to stay that is near Akureyri, this is a good spot. The views are amazing and the place will take your breath away.

A beautiful get-away

  • 5 of 5

This house on the Nollur property is beautifully designed, and has unparalleled views of the fjord. There are other rentals nearby, but the layout of the property provides privacy.

The house was a perfect location from which to venture on day trips to the Myvatn area, including Dettifoss waterfall, Dimmu Borgir, and Myvatn nature baths.

Akureyri is close by and provides all services needed.

I loved this house. It was very open, comfortable and spacious. The wooden tub was delightful, and very easy to fill.

This would be a great place to view Northern lights.

Amazing start to our Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay here, the start of our honeymoon. We loved everything about this property.

The kitchen is fitted with top quality fittings, the hot tub is amazing, and that view...to die for.

We loved the sound system to chill in the evenings, and we loved the access to the computer, so we could plan our trips. We will return here without a doubt - the best place we ever stayed.

We loved North Iceland, and had many enjoyable days out and trips, all highly recommended, Lake Mývatn, Hverir Sulphur Pools, Sellfoss & Dettifoss waterfalls, Lofthellir Ice Cave, Aldeyjarfoss & Godafoss waterfalls.

Thank you Thomas & Carmen!!

Best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We came here from the Dallas area to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It took two flights, one train, and 5+ hours in a rented SUV, and it was worth every minute it took to get here. Walking through the door that first day, my husband shouted, "Holy shmoly, this is great!" It really was.

There were no real surprises arriving at Nollur Farm. The place is as advertised -- breathtaking views of the fjord and mountains, impeccable decor, spacious rooms, high-quality appliances. The location is perfect -- twenty minutes from Iceland's second-largest city (Akureyri is lovely), perched near the head of Eyjafjord, just far enough from the lights to get a really good showing of the Aurora Borealis (twice!). Nollur is within easy driving distance of numerous interesting places. My husband, a geologist by training, was in heaven. And the fact that we were in the off season made it even better -- no fighting for a good view with other tourists, etc.

But our main objective coming here was to get away from it all -- the people, the heat, the traffic, the noise. We accomplished all of that and more. The dramatic beauty of this place, the utter silence, the solitude left us rested and wanting more. We travel a lot. I can't remember ever being this completely satisfied with a holiday, and it all started with this incredible rental. We'll be back in the next year, the only uncertainty is whether or not to bring the kids!

Fantastisches Appartment!

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement ist ein Schmuckstück und obwohl die Fotos wunderschön sind, ist alles in echt noch viel viel besser! Wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit. Ursprünglich wollten wir vor unserer Heimreise eine Nacht in der Nähe von Reykjavik verbringen, haben aber ganz unproblematisch noch eine Nacht im Appartment dranhängen können. Die Landschaft um Akureyri ist atemberaubend schön und das Gestüt PolarHestur, sowie whale watching in Dalvik sind sehr empfehlenswert. Auch sind die Ausflugstipps von Thomas zum Teil tolle "Insider". Wir würden noch ein kleines Dörfchen 10km nördlich von Hvammstangi fürs Robbenbeobachten von Land aus empfehlen, ist zwar ein bisschen weit zu fahren, aber absolut sehenswert. Kurzum, es war ein traumhafter Urlaub und wir freuen uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen!

Owner's Response: Danke für den tollen Feedback. ich gehe mit Euch einig, dass die "Robbenhalbinsel" mit Hvitserkur und dem riesigen Sand in der darauffolgenden Bucht ein sehr lohnenswertes Ziel ist. Ich nehme das wie auch die Halbinsel Skagi gerne in die Ideensammlung für 2015 auf. Dann also bis bald - wir freuen uns!
