Fantastic house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a wonderful place to stay. We stayed for 5 nights and would happily have stayed longer. It's a convenient base for visiting nearby Akureyri and other sights such as the Myvatn area, Husavik and Godafoss. Or you could happily sit and look at the fantastic view from the lounge window for days on end.

We saw the northern lights from the house on the morning of our wedding anniversary which was something really quite special.

The kitchen is fairly basic but had everything we needed and it was the first time we've ever slept on a cardboard bed!

A highly recommended place to stay, I hope we can visit again sometime.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Great place, secluded and out of the city which was really nice. We were able to see the northern lights from the front window :) the only downside was they only take cash payments and we had difficulty finding an ATM, since everyone else usually takes card around the country. Other than that it was an amazing place. Communication was quick and they even provided a guidebook with some nearby things to see. The bed was also very comfortable!

Excellent little home at Nollur!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to go on a week long journey traveling around the north central region of Iceland, and chose this little house as my base. So happy I did! After a day spent in Akureyri getting my bearings of the town and going grocery shopping, the rest of the trip was spent seeing the sights that are located within an easy few hours of travel. The booklet the owners send has a wealth of information and ideas to help with this, but be sure also to do some research before you get here so you can prioritize and plan.

The house itself is plenty roomy but cozy, too. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for simple meals, and taking a lunch with you is a great way to save a little money. And I have to tell you, the view over the fjord and up towards Kaldbakkur is enough to make you want to stay here! In fact, the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular, and if you are lucky enough to see the aurora, this is an excellent spot to view them. It is far enough away from lights and noise, but also easily within reach of Akureyri for supplies, sight seeing, and some good restaurants.

While in the area, make sure you stop at Brynja for their famous ice cream, and if you're into that sort of thing, there is a wonderful little motorcycle museum near the airport that is definitely worth a visit. Probably my favorite day trip was to go to the Myvatn area to see Godafoss, Skutusdatir, Dimmuborgir, Hofdi, and Grjotagja. That whole area is utterly fantastic and the drive is gorgeous as well.

Thanks so much for this perfect little house! I hope to be back, and will definitely be recommending Nollur to friends that are thinking of a trip to Iceland!

Wonderful Holiday at Nollur!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and unforgettable holiday in this beautiful cabin with our two sons (4 and 7 year olds) during the summer.

The cabin is located right on the edge of the fjord - with stunning views across it. We were lucky enough to see whales on 4 occasions from the cabin We also had some incredible sunsets most night!

The cabin is modern, clean and well equipped. The bed are really comfy too! Its so peaceful. We were made to feel so welcome and the cabin really is home from home - we couldn't have asked for any more.

Nollur farm is located within easy reach of places - but is nicely secluded. We had an unforgettable two weeks staying here - whale watching, hiking to deserted beaches, horse riding, walking around volcano rims and lakes, visiting waterfalls, and collecting crystals from the beach. Thank you so much for our wonderful holiday!

Really beautiful views from a super house.

  • 5 of 5

Very helpful communications from the owner prior to booking, the house was larger than we expected with stunning views across the fjord, in a peaceful location. We were lucky to have beautiful sunsets on most nights of our stay. The beds were warm and cosy and the inclusion of music and a computer very useful when holidaying with teenagers. The inclusion of more cooking facilities/equipment would have made it absolutely perfect. The Lauftas museum just up the road is well worth a visit, and we loved Akureyri.
