Brand new skiing cabin located 5 minutes from downtown Akureyri and 5 minutes from the slopes of Hlidarfjall mountain. The house can sleep up to 8 people with beds and sheets for everyone. There are 3 bedrooms all equipped with twin beds that can slide together. One of the rooms has bunk beds as well so it sleeps 4. You are also allowed to bring extra mattresses.
There is a large spacious living room area with a flat screen tv, dvd player, and a fully equipped kitchen including dish washer. From the living room area you can expect a great view of Akureyri as the cabin is located few hundred meters above the town.
The cabin has two bathrooms, one equipped with shower and one equipped with washer and a dryer. Outside you have access to a locked storage space great for storing your skiing gear.
Most of the winter season it will be possible to ski down the slopes to Hálönd where you can jump into the hot tub and relax. Hálönd is popular all year around. You can go hiking, horseriding, cycling and motorcycling in the nearby area as well as skiing.
As it is situated just 5 minutes from downtown Akureyri you can find all range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and attractions just minutes away.
Akureyri is situated only 5 km. from Hálönd and is the center of culture, education and leisure activities in North Iceland. With a population of about 19000, the town is by far the largest outside the Reykjavík capital area.
Our cabin was built in the summer of 2013 and everything is brand new and luxurious. It is located at the top location of the resort with the best views as it has no other houses blocking the view. You can expect to enjoy amazing view of Akureyri at night and even the northern lights.

Mjög gott að vera þarna. Lentum í basli með að hella upp á kaffi - sennilega voru pokarnir of litlir, að minnsta kosti stíflaðist kannan og flæddi um allt. Gáfumst upp og enduðum í hylkjum. Annað eins og best var á kosið. Æðislegt útsýni.
Excellent stay! Loved the view. Peace and quiet. Clean.

Spacious house equipped with everything you need in a holiday home but I wouldn't call it 'luxury' because there were some minor inconveniences. In the 4-bed room the upper beds were narrow and a bit noisy, in an other bedroom the window could not be opened and it was too warm inside even with the heating switched to minimum (1 on the thermostat, it had no 0).
And beware of the washing machine, it may decide to wash for 4-5 hours even though you ask for a very simple programme.
Altogether it was a good stay, I don't regret that I've chosen it but it was a bit overpriced.

very good location, 5 min with the car of the city, good place to discover the north Iceland. Very confortable for a family. Good sight at the fjord (when good weather).

Hello, this is a new, beautiful property. There is everything you need including a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer. I would rent it again for sure.
There is are some small "buts": The luxury level (about 400 Euro per night for four people) does not correspond well to some demands of the owner.
For example, you are supposed to separate the garbage yourself (into organic, paper and other), but there are only two bins and no waste bags; also, you have to bring the garbage yourself to the garbage bins 200 meters away; there was not enough dish washing liquid left; and you are required to take off all the bed linens and sheets and clean the whole house with a vacuum cleaner before leaving.
I think for this price these things should not be demanded from the guests because - as it says when booking - we already paid for cleaning but then you are asked to do it yourself.
One more shorts remark: It is nice to have a huge TV screen, but why only the few Icelandic channels? That was surprising. There was also no manual how to operate the device.

Lovely cottage! Love the heated floor. We saw northern lights dancing right from the comfort of the living room. Awesome view of the city from the house too. Awesome stay :)

We stayed with four persons (two children) in Hrímland nbr 11 for three nights. Only five minutes drive from the centre of Akureyri this really is a five star cottage. Quiet environment and well equiped kitchen, supreme beds, spacy bathroom, washing machine, laundry drying machine and hot tub. As it is equiped for 8 persons it is really good value for money.

The Hrímland Luxury Cottage is one of the best accommodation options in Icland! The structres are all new, very well laid out with taseteful and functional appointments. The location is very easy to find and it is a small collection or community of several identical yet private accommodations. Each unit has three bedrooms, each with different configuration options, a full kitchen, laundry, 1.5 bathrooms and a spa. My wife and I enjoyed our stay here and found the place to be very relaxing and a terrific base for seeing north Icleand - which has no shortage of fabulous sights!
When we arrived, we contacted the own who had arranged for the access so we simply arrived at the place and it was all ready and we had a key upon arrival. A nice bonus to the place is they have high speed Internet available, allowing us to catch up on what we had missed while traveling and post some updates to our friends and family.
I would highly recommend the Hrímland Luxury Cottage!!

the house was absolutely beautiful inside. It was modern, clean and very open. It included all the necessary conveniences which helped make our stay pleasant and easy. Although the house is situated in a complex of identical houses, it still had a lovely view out the side window to the fjord and mountains beyond. It was very convenient to town and to various hiking trails. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Spent a weekend there snowboarding with my friends, plenty of room for the 8 of us and going to the hot tub after a day in the mountain was insane. 10/10 would stay again

We stayed there with 7 people and it was really fantastic. It is very New and luxuriious with a lot of space and an incredible view. The only thing what was not so nice was that the drain of the shower was completely blocked and we had to remove all the hair and soaprests ourselves.
If we come to Akuyreri again we would rent it again.
