Davíð’s House


In the green hills of Akureyri is a house with an exciting history and a unique atmosphere of the 1960s. Built in 1944 by one of Iceland’s most loved poets and writers, Davíð Stefánsson, who lived there until he died in 1964. Davíð had a taste for the finer things in life and was an enthusiastic collector of art and books. His apartment is a testament to his taste, full of books, art collection and other personal articles, just as he left them in 1964.
