House in Húsavík, Iceland

We live in the nice, small town of Húsavík on the North-east coast of Iceland. Our house is 195 m2 big and located at the end of a street in a quiet neighbourhood. Great view overlooking the town!

Húsavík is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland because of its reputation as the Whale Watching Capital of Europe!
The unique and beautiful landscape of Northeastern Iceland, and the many interesting places to visit in the region, makes this an ideal destination for enjoying Iceland.

In our house we have four bedrooms, three of them have double beds, one with a single bed. There are two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a shower. A big, open space includes the newly renovated kitchen, the dining area and the living room. In the garden we have a terrace with a hot tub and a trampoline.

About Our Family

We are a family of five, Hafþór (56), Elín (52), and three daughters Lea Hrund (17), Heiðdís (25) and Halla Marín (31). The two oldest girls live in Reykjavík and Copenhagen, Denmark - but sometimes travel with us.

Hafþór is a freelance photographer and Elín is a hairdresser with her own salon. Lea is in middle school, Heiðdís studies at the University of Iceland and Halla at the University of Copenhagen.

We enjoy cooking and eating delicious food in good company, playing and watching football, we love traveling and to learn about different cultures and habits, reading good books, and photography is a very big part of our life.
