Great View Guesthouse is a home-stay guesthouse near Akureyri in North Iceland. It is surrounded by beautiful landscapes. It is conveniently located for travellers who wish to explore North Iceland. There is an abundance of activities available in the area and Akureyri, the largest town in North Iceland, is located only 9 km away. The guesthouse can accommodate 9 persons and has three double rooms and one triple room. All guests have access to a kitchen and two shared bathrooms. The house has a hot tub on one of the terraces that all guests have access to. We highly recommend relaxing in the hot tub while enjoying the midnight sun during summer and go star-gazing during winter. You might even catch the northern lights.

Yvar is a great host and he will make you feel at home, it is a wonderful place to be. They have everything to make you welcome and the location is perfect near Akureyri. Definitely the best place we stayed in Iceland.
