I´ll be glad to give you information on whatever I´m able to about the nice small town of Akureyri and surroundings and what we have here or do not have :)
You need to step up 5 or 6 steps to get to the flat so it is not wheelchair accessible. In last weeks of May and in June there is a magical time in Icelandic nature. Nights are getting lighter, the growth is blooming, birds are laying eggs and everything comes alive. Around June 21 there is summer solstice and all June up north you could read during the night without lighting a light. There is even a midnight golf tournament in Akureyri around summer solstice. Sometimes our guests from abroad forget to sleep and don´t believe the hour when looking at the watch sometime after midnight and even long into the night/morning. I believe that you would enjoy experiencing this
- You need to take off your shoes when entering the building. Then up several steps and my door is the first on left. Am looking forward to see you
- As there are more flats in the building we try to have all quiet after 10.30 pm
- Please notice that you share the toilet with those living in the flat
- You are not supposed to cook anything but can store on one shelf in the fridge and are able to have your own breakfast from what you bring. Breakfast is not included. Please clean up in the kitchen if you use the facilities there. Do not bring guests into the apartment that aren't listed in your booking.
I am an easy going person , mother of three grown ups and am blessed with three grandchildren whom I love to be around. I love being outdoors, love to travel and meet people from all over the world. I find it fantastic to relax with a good book. Further more I love to relax with friends and cook a good meal in a good company with talk and laughter. Humour and joy is essential in life. I enjoy drawing and painting and you will probably see some of my art at the flat.
I am certified tourist guide and am working mostly as guide in the Northeast region, around Akureyri, north to Siglufjörður, north to Húsavík also guiding in Mývatn area and to Námaskarð, Krafla, Dettifoss, Ásbyrgi, Hljóðaklettar, Tjörnes, Dimmuborgir, Hverfjall, Grjótagjá, Skútustaðagígar, Goðafoss , Laufás to name a few places that I have been going to with foreign guests as tour guide.
I am ready to make tailor made tours with my guests if requested around Akureyri and neighbourhood if I have free time for that. Then I would be your driver guide and take you places in your car and you would get fuller information and probably see more than if you were exploring on your own. At least an option to consider. Then my main or steady job is at a office at the municipality of Akureyri
I take pride in making my guests feel comfortable in good beds and cozy environment and create a feeling of a home away from home. I know by my own experience how important it is to get a good night's sleep and relax after a busy day and I want you to be able to do that as well. Remamber that life is good.
