Gamli Baerinn is an old, romantic farmhouse in Dalvik and one of the Vegamot Cottages. It is a perfect escape for travelers to north Iceland hoping to get off the beaten track in a home away from home with a hot tub.
Location & Nearby
Gamli Baerinn is located in the heart of Dalvik, a fishing settlement on the cusp of Eyjafjordur; though this town is small and traditional, it still has a wealth of amenities for travelers. Those seeking more choice or more upmarket restaurants and bars, however, can drive just half an hour south to the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri, which is the largest settlement in the country outside of Reykjavik.
Here, you’ll be able to find everything a traveler could need, particularly regarding local excursions.
Dalvik is a great location for skiing, whale watching, and hiking, but is also close to major sightseeing attractions. Siglufjordur, Godafoss waterfall, and Lake Myvatn, for example, are just over 30 minutes, an hour, and 1.5 hours away respectively.
Facilities & Amenities
The Old Farmhouse of Gamli Baerinn covers 28 square meters, with one main floor and a sleeping loft. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen, a living area, and a bathroom with a shower. Up to four adults can sleep in the house, with two in the loft and two on the large sofa bed; it can otherwise accommodate a family of five. Wifi is free throughout the building.
The most appealing thing about the Old Farmhouse, aside from its location and romantic ambiance, is the private hot tub and sauna in the garden, which are great for enjoying the Midnight Sun or seeking the Northern Lights.
