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.

familäres Ferienhaus mit wunderschönem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt idyllisch am Fjord und ist praktisch eingerichtet, ideal für einige entspannte Tage in Nordisland. Von hier aus kann man das Wolkenspiel, die Walboote (ggf auch Wale mit Fernglas) und die Fjordumgebung beobachten. Außerdem ist das Haus sehr familienfreundlich (bis 4 Personen) und sauber. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist (gemessen an isländischen Verhältnissen) außerordentlich gut. Mit der vom Vermieter in Aussicht gestellten neuen Küche wäre es das perfekte Objekt!

Besonders hilfreich waren auch die Ausflugstipps vom Vermieter.

Beeindruckende Natur und sehr nette Leute!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus Krysovík war sehr schön und mit sehr schöner Aussicht auf den Fjord!

Es gab viele Nordlichter in kalten Sternenklaren Nächten zu sehen, und andererseits kam ich einen Tag mit meinem 4x4 Wagen (mit Spikes) nicht durch den Schnee bis zur Straße xD

Dank Anna und ihrem Mann konnte ich dann aber doch meine Fahrt machen. Es war ein erlebnisreicher Urlaub und die Natur war einfach Wahnsinn! Ich war alleine für 2 Wochen in Island, aber es war alles erste Klasse! Sehr nette Leute, egal wo man war! Island hat mich nicht zum letzten mal gesehen, allerdings werde ich das nächste mal nichtmehr im Winter kommen ;)

Vielen Dank für alles an Thomas, Carmen, Anna und ihren Mann.

Gruß,

Florian

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus befindet sich mit anderen Ferienhäusern auf einem Bauernhof. Es ist ruhig gelegen und hat eine unbeschreibliche Aussicht über den Fjord. Von oben sieht man das Haus nicht gleich, das Dach und die danebenliegende Wiese sind sozusagen eins. Das Haus ist toll und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Für uns waren der Eßtisch und die Couch im Schlafzimmer - je mit Blick auf den Fjord besondere Highlights.

Der Standort ist als Startort für Tagesausflüge im Norden Islands sehr gut geeignet.

Wir haben tolle Sonnenuntergänge über dem Fjord gesehen - mit faszinierenden Wolkenschichten und fast unheimlichem Nebel, der übers Wasser zieht. Auch der Sonnenaufgang über den Bergen - im August nur für absolute Frühaufsteher zu sehen - war toll.
