Ice, ice baby
It’s not just bibliophiles who will love a Place to Read in Iceland’s second city, Akureyri. This homestay hideaway is housed in a former pharmacy in the old part of town, close to a famous fjord, and is made up of just a handful of apartment-style suites (or you can book out the house as a whole). It’s – obviously – the perfect place to stay in with a good book, but we’d recommend saving that for evenings recovering from wild adventures: there are plenty of waterfalls, lakes and mountains to explore up here. The Northern Lights are no stranger to these far-flung parts, and if you’ve travelled in high summer the days go on and on (and on – there are just two hours between sunset and sunrise in July).
Get this when you book through us:
A book on William Morris; if you book the entire house, you'll also receive a bottle of Drappier Champagne and a selection of Omnom Chocolates
