Guests often search for this popular amenity
Small double bedroom at an old Icelandic farm, Tjörn, surrounded by beautiful nature, hiking trails and birdwatching paradise. The room is located in the newly refurbished basement. There is a communal toilet, shower and sauna, located in the hallway. There is also a communal cooking/sitting area.

Tjörn is an old church farm in Dalvíkurbyggð in Svarfaðardalur. The farm is located west of the valley about 5 km within Dalvík and about 40 km from Akureyri.

The space
The farm has belonged to our family since 1915. It's situated in a beautiful landscape, lake, river, hillside and ocean view. Kristján, who lives at the farm with his wife Kristjana, is a hiking guide and knows the mountains here better then anyone. So during the summer and autumn season, guided hiking trips are available. From September to April there we are spoilt with amazing northern lights/stargazing opportunities and in the winter this area is ideal for cross country skiing and mountain skiing.
