A beautiful house in picturesque Akureyri in Iceland.

A very nice house which can accomodate a large family. Akureyri is in northern Iceland, close to many of Iceland's nature pearls, i.e. Lake Mývatn (an hour and 15 min drive) and Dettifoss.
The house has two floors. On the upper floor there is a large kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen is very well equipped. One bedroom, bathroom with a shower and a bathtub and a small office. On the ground floor there are three bedrooms, a small room with an extra single bed and a small bathroom with shower.

About Our Family

A family of five, Birgir, university prófessor, Ingibjörg, assistant proffessor, and two young adults and one teenager (18). Only one child living at home the whole year, the other two in Reykjavík, studying at the University of Iceland. We lived in Genova, Italy for three months in 2012 and loved it! We love our home and enjoy our time together in our house. Ingibjörg is a fan of crime novels, mostly Nordic and British. We have an 11 year old dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Our exchange partners do not have to take care of him:)

Lifestyle

We love to travel, we read a lot, especially Ingibjörg. Spending time with our children and with good friends is the best:)
