The location of our residency is very central,  in the heart of Akureyri located at the Art Street, in the same area you will find the Art Museum, Galleries,  the Swimming Pool, Restaurants and Bars. Shops and most services are in walking distance and the local bus (Strætó) is free of charge. We have a beautiful Botanic garden and city centre both just around the corner.  Short distance to open nature.

The facilities used to belong to the old Dairy fabric and as well as most of the buildings in the Art Street.  When the Dairy fabric was moved to a better location outside of town artists and interested people founded the Gil Association with the aim of building up the Art Street as you find it today. This adventure started 25 years ago and is still going strong. The Gil Association is a non-profit run by voluntaries and some support from our members and goodwill from the city.
