Located in Vaðlaheiði, this airy, modern Airbnb overlooks a beautiful fjord and mountain ranges where guests can enjoy an endless variety of outdoor activities. Hiking, horseback riding, kayaking and scuba diving are just a few of the options, as in the winter, visitors can also experience cross-country skiing, dog sledding with huskies, snow shoeing and ice fishing.
Vaðlaheiði itself is only a ten minute drive from Akureyri, Northern Iceland's most lively city. Topping the list for one of the ten best places to visit in Europe in 2015 by Lonely Planet, Akureyri and the surrounding area is home to numerous festivals and tournaments, including the Arctic Open Golf Tournament, the Fish Festival in Dalvik (where everybody is invited to a sea food buffet for free) and the Siglufjörður Folk Music Festival.
This airbnb also acts as an ideal home base for a number of adventurous day trips, not to mention nightly viewings of Iceland's beautiful northern lights. For example, exploring Northern Iceland's Diamond Circle covers such must-see natural wonders and volcanic sites as the booming falls of Godafass (which translates to the "waterfall of the Gods") and the boiling mud springs of Hverir.
