Description

The Great View Guesthouse is a beautiful place in rural North Iceland, just to the south of Akureyri, boasting a hot tub. Travelers looking for welcoming, affordable lodgings surrounded by rural landscapes, close to attractions such as Lake Myvatn, should book while availability lasts!

Location & Nearby

Seven miles (eleven kilometers) away from the capital of North Iceland, Akureyri, the Great View Guesthouse is close to the services of a significant town while still being surrounded by wilderness. As its name suggests, there are beautiful views from the windows of mountains and rolling fields. The accommodation thus provides the best of both worlds for its guests.

Akureyri boasts boutiques, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, banks, post offices, and an array of other establishments that travelers might need. On top of this, it is one of the most charming settlements in the country. Its architecture, particularly around its central church and conference center, is breathtaking, and it has some fascinating museums and galleries. Furthermore, it has gorgeous surroundings and a spectacular harbor, from which you can embark on tours such as whale watching.

You can also meet tour operators in Akureyri who can take you on inland excursions such as horseback riding, river rafting, and northern lights hunting.

The Great View Guesthouse is close enough to the sites of the Diamond Circle to explore them all within a day. The nearest landmark, Godafoss waterfall, is 24 miles (39 kilometers) east, where you can marvel over nature and learn about history. The furthest, Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe, is 97 miles (156 kilometers) away.

Between these attractions, you will explore the Lake Myvatn area, the canyon of Asbyrgi, and the town of Husavik. Myvatn is a geological wonderland with a geothermal spa named the Myvatn Nature Baths. Asbyrgi, meanwhile, is shaped like a horseshoe, with towering cliffs and abundant woodland. Husavik is renowned for having even better whale watching than Akureyri. Many even consider it one of the best places in the world for this popular activity.

Facilities & Amenities

The Great View Guesthouse is a lovely building with four bedrooms, providing a peaceful, intimate stay. Three rooms are doubles, while one accommodates three across single beds. All guests can use the spacious house kitchen and the two regularly maintained shared bathrooms. The living room has a television and gorgeous views of the mountains, and WiFi is free throughout the building.

Outdoors, there is a beautiful terrace with a hot tub you are welcome to enjoy. This pool is a great spot for looking out for the northern lights in the winter and enjoying the midnight sun in summer. There is also a playground for children and a barbecue, making the Great View Guesthouse a perfect choice for families.

Breakfast is provided each morning and you can park at the guesthouse for free.
