Beautiful house, wonderful stay!
We loved our winter stay! The house is beautiful and very well designed. You can tell that a lot of thought and attention was put into its design and construction. It's like a piece of artwork. I loved how the hotpot was designed. It was very creative. We found it very easy to use. My only suggestion for the future would be to put a switch on the hotpot lights so that they don't turn on from every bit of motion while you're in the hotpot (it impacts the ambiance and ability to see the sky a night in the winter). We're so glad we stayed here - we highly recommend it!
A beautiful, modern retreat. A perfect stay.
Spectacular accommodation an amazing view
Spectacular accommodation an amazing view. Very comfy beds and bedding. Delux kitchen with all you need to cook. Wonderful host Thomas was helpful and extremely hospitable. Would highly recommend to stay here for. Your adventures in northern Iceland.
Life-changing experience with breathtaking views of the fjord. Unforgettable Memories
The Kaldbakur home on the Nollur property was perhaps the greatest part of our 9 day trip to Iceland.
Every morning we would wake up to breathtaking views of the fjord with the sun rising from behind the mountains, and at night there were panoramic views of the moon and northern lights view-able from every room.
The wrap-around decking made photographing the scenic views easy whether it was catching the warm sunlight on the mountains or the vibrant northern lights in the evening. Because the house is removed from the city lights we had a great view of the northern lights and saw several shooting stars at night as well.
The home had all ultra-modern equipment to include washer and dryer, stove and oven. There was a very user-friendly hot tub that made watching the northern lights an amazing experience from the geothermally-heated waters.
We chose to stay at the Nollur home for all 9 days of our stay in Iceland and make day trips out to local places like Lake Myvatn, the Myvatn Nature Baths, Laufas, and many more. This worked out perfectly as Nollur is ideally located within a short driving distance from Akureyri and Grenivik as well as many other great places to visit.
Lastly, the staff and homeowner were very kind and communicated well. They were very accommodating and were fast to respond to questions. Very gracious hosts.
If you plan on staying in North Iceland, Nollur needs to be your place to stay.
Unforgettable experiences and memories. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Couldn't have asked for more!
This property is beautiful and the views outside are even better. The property is large, clean and beautifully presented. It had everything we needed for out stay. The views outside were stunning and we couldn't get enough of them. The hot tub does take a while to fill up so you have to plan ahead however it stay lovely and warm for a while once filled. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights from the property as it is about a 20minute drive from Akureyri and so there are not many lights around!
