Are you looking for a hotel in Akureyri ? My sister Hildur and my brother Guðjón run a new family friendly hotel that has just opened for business in my lovely home town of Akureyri so I want to tell you all about it. The hotel is called ´Hotel Kjarnalundur´ and has 46 rooms. It is only 3 km from downtown Akureyri. The best thing about it is that is located on the edge of Kjarnaskógur woods which has everything you would ever need for having a great time: hiking trails, volleyball courts and playgrounds for children. It even has a mountain biking track.

If you happen to stay there please give Guðjón and Hildur my love.

Want to stay in Winter at a Hotel in Akureyri?

In winter the walking paths are plowed, making them perfect for cross country skiing. Since this hotel in Akureyri is just outside of the town it is free of light pollution. This makes its location ideal for watching the northern lights and stargazing.
