Revitalised in the North
Hotel Kjarnalundur opens in the Kjarnaskógur Forest
“We opened a brand new and very beautiful hotel last June in the attractive wooded area of Kjarnaskógur and named it Hotel Kjarnalundur. We are surrounded by nature, so our guests can really relax and get refilled with energy”, says Erna Kristín Hauksdóttir, the new hotel’s manager.
Hotel Kjarnalundur stands on the edge of Kjarnaskógur, only 5km from down-town Akureyri. The hotel provides a unique setting for outdoor enjoyment, health and well-being. Kjarnaskógur, which is one of the most popular outdoor areas in Akureyri, offers endless possibilities. There are two playgrounds, picnic areas, barbecue facilities, rest rooms and a volley ball court, for instance.
For bird lovers, the area has a very varied bird life and there is a bird watching shelter by the Hundatjörn marsh in Naustaborgir.
There are many attractive hiking trails and a specially designed mountain biking track around the area. The walking paths for skiers are plowed in winter.
“We look forward to meeting our many new guests in the new hotel. There is a nice atmosphere in the house and a friendly spirit.
“It was built as a health centre to begin with and we are going to offer a new health centre here”, says Erna Kristín. She says that, in the near future, the health centre will be equipped with hot tubs, infra-red sauna and a massage and fitness area.
Hotel Kjarnalundur has 46 rooms on four floors. The rooms range in size and prices to give guests affordable options. A suite comprises a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.
There is a restaurant on the 2nd floor where guests can enjoy breakfast and a buffet dinner.
The building has elevator service and handicapped access to all four floors. There are also five rooms specially designed for wheelchair access.
Free Wi-Fi is available everywhere on the hotel premises.
