welcome to Haelid the great white plague center

Only 10 km south of Akureyri hides a beautiful village, Kristnes, built up around a tuberculosis (TB) sanatorium from 1927. At HÆLIÐ we have opened a touching exhibition about the TB. Do not miss it on your visit to North Iceland. A cosy Café is attached to it, perfect to taste the homemade pastries and coffee afterwards. 


Welcome to a visual journey through sickness and loss but also hope, serenity and lust for life

Good coffee and lovely homemade pastries in beautiful and atmospheric surroundings.

Opening Hours

Open Weekends from 14-17 during winter
