- 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.
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
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.
