Location & Nearby
The Ytri Vik Cottages are right beside the tiny fishing villages of Haukanes and Arskogssandur, on the beautiful fjord of Eyjafjordur. This places them 25 minutes away from the largest town in north Iceland, Akureyri, where you can find a wealth of traveller services such as grocery stores and banks, and some unique attractions such as the world’s northernmost botanical gardens.
This incredible location allows you to visit some unique, little-known sites such as the nearby Beer Baths with ease, while still remaining reasonably close to the major attractions. The magnificent waterfall of Godafoss, for example, is only around an hour away by car, and the spectacular Lake Myvatn region, which is renowned for its geothermal and geological wonder, can be reached in an hour and a half.
Facilities & Amenities
The standard Ytri Vik Cottage is a beautiful, rustic escape with stunning views on the surrounding nature. The smallest accommodates just two, and larger ones can take up to six. Each has a living area with a television, a kitchen, a private bathroom, a barbecue on the terrace, and its own geothermal hot tub.
There is one house, however, that is an outlier on-site; a holiday home on offer can house up to 16 people over seven bedrooms, boasting all the above facilities but with additional bathrooms and its very own sauna. Family gatherings and those on business trips will find it comfortably accommodates everyone.
Why Choose Ytri Vik Cottages?
Travellers to north Iceland seeking a home away from home, slightly away from the main tourist trails but close enough to all the major sites, should not hesitate to grab an Ytri Vik Cottage. Book your private escape now.
