This is a brand new skiing cabin located 5 minutes from downtown in Akureyri and 5 minutes from the slopes of Hlidarfjall mountain. The house can accommodate up to 8 people with beds and sheets for everyone. There are three bedrooms, all equipped with twin beds that can slide together. One of the rooms has bunk beds for four guests as well. There is also an option 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 dishwasher. From the living room area, you can expect a great view of Akureyri as the cabin is located a few hundred meters above the town.
The cabin has two bathrooms, one equipped with a shower, and one equipped with a 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 accessible all year round. You can go hiking, horse riding, 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 located only 5 kilometres from Hálönd and is the centre of culture, education and leisure activities in northern Iceland. With a population of about 19,000, the town is by far the largest city outside the Reykjavík capital area.
The 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 a fantastic view of Akureyri at night and even the northern lights.
