Open for exchange

The member has not specified any exchange dates

We are open for exchange in September and October.

We are open for both simultaneous and not simultaneous house exchanges.

Our home is in one of oldest houses in town. It is located in the old part of town, about, 15 min walk to the center and buses are free. In the old part of the house, now renovated, is the living room, a library, a study and three bedrooms. The extension is relatively new and modern; a big kitchen, another living room, bathroom and laundry. The view from the house is beautiful. Akureyri is surrounded with mountains which can make many good walks during the summer, skiing during the winter and the view from there is fantastic. The house is close to the towns´ museums. In Akureyri, about 10-15 min. walking distance from our house  is a very good swimming pool, galleries, and museums. Within 1-2 hours drive there are number of opportunities for wonderful daytours; e.g. Godafoss, Myvatn, Asbyrgi, Hljodaklettar, Langanes, Husavik, Dalvik, Olafsfjördur, Siglufjordur and even Drangey.

We can also offer our cottage (see photos), located in a beautiful valley, an hour drive from Akureyri, which is close to the small towns; Dalvik, Olafsfjordur and Siglufjordur.

Our Neighbourhood

Húsið okkar er í gamla bænum á Akureyri, það stendur við tjörn þar sem er talsvert fuglalíf og friðsæld. Hér eru mörg athyglisverð hús, svo athyglisverð að ég hef skrifað bók um húsin og fólkið og sögur þess.

Hér eru söfn, nokkrar gerðir og aðeins 15 mínútna gangur í miðbæinn.

About Our Family

We are a couple, a man and a woman, age 72 and 73, Kristin and Hallgrimur. We retired at 70, but we are in very good health and enjoy our retirement. We have lived in Akureyri, Iceland most of our life, but also in Norway (many years, Oslo and Österdal), England (three years, Bristol), Scotland (7 months, Edinburgh) and in Victoria, Canada (a year). We have three children and four grandchildren. Hallgrimur was a forester and Kristin a professor.

Lifestyle

Furthermore we can offer our cottage in a beautiful valley 50 km from Akureyri.
