The Research Residencies are located in selected small charming old houses in the town of Seydisfjörður.
The town is well known in Iceland for its well preserved wooden houses painted in individual color schemes and as the tradition and weather prescribes covered in corrugated iron.
All residencies have two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, kitchen, a living room area and studio/workspace with work tables and internet access. The houses are equipped with beds, dining sets, duvets, linens and towels for up to 5 people.
