We enjoyed our stay here. They upgraded us to separate rooms for our teens and my husband and me, and we both had attractive, stylish rooms. The bathrooms were down the hall but easy to get in. The front desk staff was helpful and the overall ambience was quiet but very hip.

My sister and I loved our stay here! Such a relaxing, homey place. I can’t say enough good things about the staff here. They were so caring and considerate. They alerted us to weather issues, made sure we were safe and comfortable the whole time. Our room was large and the beds

This quaint little guesthouse right outside of Akureyri provided a comfortable sleeping place while traveling the Ring Road. Because it is just outside Akureyri, it provides the perfect setting and opportunity to see the Northern Lights. They even offer to wake you up when the

I loved every detail of this guesthouse. Only 10 minutes from Akureyri, it’s a lovely country setting. It was so cozy, clean, had beautiful sitting areas, good happy hour prices... the hot tub was so relaxing, overlooking the water. Unfortunately no northern lights were out when

My room was a 3 person room, apologies for the mess !
Thanks for asking, but I am not the innkeeper. My wife and I were simply guests at Skjaldarvik. We are familiar enough with Akureyri to say that if you are coming from Reykjavik, you will pass by Skjaldarvik before you reach Myvatn and Dettifoss. If you are arriving at the airport in Akureyri, it would be a little bit easier to go to Myvatn and Dettifoss first. You are going to love it! You can contact the innkeeper at skjaldarvik@skjaldarvik.is. Telephone is +354 552 5200.

"Just be aware if there are large groups travelling so that they can put you in a quieter area."
"Rooms on the ground floor near to the hot tub and living room - slightly noisier but very convenient"
"See if you can get fjord views."
"You can choose a mounten wiew or a ocean wiew."
"The whole place gets quiet at 11:00 PM so noise was not a factor."
US$76 - US$191 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
