- Peaceful and cozy cabin with amazing views. Welcome to my cabin in Vadlaheidi. This is a homely and very cozy accommodation in north Iceland, located only a short (10 min) drive from the town of Akureyri. Surrounded with stunning nature and even better views, this is the perfect place for a quiet and relaxing time in between exciting activities that the area has to offer. LOCATION The cabin is located in an exclusive residential area in Vadlaheidi, a short 10 minutes drive from Akureyri, the capital of Northern Iceland. The location of the cabin offers the best of both worlds, secluded and surrounded by nature but yet close to Akureyri where you can experience vibrant city life with shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. The views from the cabin are spectacular in all directions, over Akur...- Peaceful and cozy cabin with amazing views. Welcome to my cabin in Vadlaheidi.

Surrounded with stunning nature and even better views, this is the perfect place for a quiet and relaxing time in between exciting activities that the area has to offer. LOCATION The cabin is located in an exclusive residential area in Vadlaheidi, a short 10 minutes drive from Akureyri, the capital of Northern Iceland. The location of the cabin offers the best of both worlds, secluded and surrounded by nature but yet close to Akureyri where you can experience vibrant city life with shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. The views from the cabin are spectacular in all directions, over Akureyri and Eyjafjord. As it is located a short distance from the town itself and away from the city lights, it makes an ideal place to inspect the Aurora Borealis during winter and the amazing midnight sunsets during summer. IMPORTANT: Please note that it is essential to have access to a car to being able to fully exploit this accommodation and the surroundings, as there is no public transport service nearby. THE SPACE The cabin offers a warm and homely feel with every utility needed to make your stay comfortable. The space consists of a fully equipped kitchenette (with a microwave instead of an oven), a modern living space where you can walk out on a terrace and embrace the nature surrounded by the cabin. The living area has a flat screen TV, Harman Kardon home audio system with a Bluetooth connection, so you can listen to your favorite music in the highest quality. It also has a grill for summer (or winter) barbeques, a washing machine and free Wi-Fi. The cabin has a hot tub, a necessity in both winter and summer to relax and unwind after long days of activities whilst enjoying the sunsets or the stars and the beautiful surroundings of the cabin. The bedroom has a comfortable, queen size bed that sleeps two persons and with the guest bed, the cabin can accommodate three persons. The cabin is rented out with made up beds, and with towels and bed linen included in the price and a baby bed is available upon request. SURROUNDINGS AND ACTIVITIES The location of the cabin offers easy access, not only to the center of Akureyri but also to the interesting sites in the surroundings. You can go on hiking tours, walk up the mountain Sulur, one of the mountains above Akureyri, you can go on daily horse riding tours or a midnight sun ride, visit naturally heated swimming pool, hire kayaks or go on a diving course. There are a few golf courses in the nearby areas, offering 9- 18 holes in stunning surroundings. During winter you can go ski or do cross-country skiing in the best ski resort in Iceland with outstanding views of Akureyri and the Fjord. You can even go dog sledging with huskies, go snowshoe walking or fishing through ice. Everyone should find something the interest them and of their liking. It is also very popular to drive the road skirting the beautiful western shore of the Eyjafjordur, visit the magnificent waterfalls, Goðafoss and Dettifoss or other spectacular nature sites such as Dimmuborgir, Mývatn, the canyon of Jökulsárgljúfur and go whale watching in Húsavík.
