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.
May daily 14-18
Saturday and Sunday 14-18
Groups are welcome by arrangement
