I would highly recommend staying in Bjarni's cottage! It was perfect with all the essentials. The bed was comfortable and the location so convenient. Be sure to stop by their cafe too.... amazing food and beer!

Excellent base to explore the north with incredibly generous and kind hosts. The fish soup lived up to its reputation so make sure to eat it. Thank you Bjarni!

We had a great time in Dalvik in this Bungalow, especially after the ski touring in the jacuzzi! Bjarni is very nice and helpful, and we appreciated a lot his cafe in the town (excellent food and ambiance).

From the moment we came over the mountain and saw the fjord with towns dotted down the shore we knew we were in for a treat. The cottages were really easy to find and soon we met Bjarni in the town. He was a great host, very relaxed and easy going and interesting to meet. The bonus was being upgraded to the old farmhouse which was amazing, we loved it, really quaint but with everything you need. The sleeping loft was fab. I wish we could have stayed for much longer. Bjarni and his wife run a great cafe in the town serving delicious fish soup and home made bread. The whale watching trip from Dalvik was fantastic too. Our stay with Bjarni in Dalvik remains one of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommended.

Bjarni User ProfileBjarni is a superhost.

We are a family of five, Heiða (50), Bjarni (51) and our daughters, Anna (23), María (21) and Bríet Brá (14). In and around our home we also have three cats…Dúskur, Hrefna and Lotta.
Heiða is born in Dalvík but Bjarni is born in Grenivík on the opposite side of the fjord. We are busy most of the time taking care of our hostel and cottages as well as our little Café/bar "Gísli, Eiríkur, Helgi" but Heiða also makes decorations for weddings, birthdays and funerals and Bjarni also works as a fisherman on various trawlers and boats.
We live in Vegamót, which is our house, situated at the south entrance of Dalvík. A lot of houses in Dalvík, like in other towns and villages in Iceland, have names...and not always a real postal address! Around 70 homes in Dalvík have names and some of them are used as post our home at Vegamót. Vegamót means Crossroads in english.We have been running our little company for five years now, providing accommodation in our Dalvík hostel, Gimli, three cottages and the "Old farm house". The cottages and the Old farm house are situated by our house Vegamót but Gimli is in the center of Dalvík.
From April to September we also run the local skihut which is a located at the ski area above Dalvík.
We are a part of “HiHostel International” and accommodation can be booked at the HiHostel pages like Photos can be found on So far we are very happy with the feedback we get and we love having guests. Our hostel has been rated No 1 HiHostel in the world of 2013 by our HiHostel guests!
We are ready to advise our guests on what to do while staying here or give information needed for their journey. We also pick up travellers from Akureyri and provide tours around the area if needed.
We hope to be able to make your stay a very enjoyable one and we welcome you to our precious Dalvík!
