Svartaborg Luxury Villas get rave reviews
Svartaborg Luxury Villas in the North gets raving reviews in the American travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler . The journalist Erika Owen writes that Svartaborg is her all time favourite Icelandic Airbnb venue in Iceland.
Owen came to Iceland this year to celebrate her 10 year anniversary with her husband to be. They came to Iceland to get married, but they had had to cancel their wedding because of the pandemic.
During winter there is a whole lot of other activities available to guests of Svartaborg, and seeing the Northern Lights is just one of them.
Before their wedding ceremony that took place in the southern part of Iceland, they decided to make it extra special by going up north and decided to stay in Svartaborg Luxury Villas. Owen had been to Akureyri, Húsavík and Mývatn up north before and wanted to show her partner these places.
Svartaborg is well located if you want to see those three areas. Húsavík is a 25 minute drive away, Mývatnssveit is 40 minutes away and it only takes half an hour to drive to Akureyri.
Owen was really impressed with the design of the houses, which are designed in a Scandinavian style and were built in 2020.
Beautiful sunset up in the Northern part of Iceland, which is an undiscovered gem for many visitors to Iceland.
" After eight trips to the country, this Airbnb in Iceland earned a special place in my heart—and not just because we were celebrating a massive life event. Each day, we found ourselves within reasonable driving distance of waterfalls, geothermal fields of boiling mud and steam towers, volcanic craters, fields of arctic lupine, hot springs , and lava rock fields. And while the country is known for this kind of diverse landscape, to capture it all within a one-hour drive is an art form. I’m counting down the days until we visit again, next time to take in the Northern Lights ," Owen writes in the conclusion of her article.
