The house can sleep up to 7 people. A spacious terrace is around the house, offering a great view over the beautiful and naturally grown property, just as well as on the remote landscape –with a view to five glaciers and two volcanos! The geothermal floor heating makes a warm welcome at day and night, summer and winter. This area is teeming with historic and cultural sites, great sights, interesting restaurants and all kinds of activities, not to forget challenging roads and tracks for 4x4 vehicles.That way Brekka can accommodate 8 people on request. Please notice, if booked for more than 6 guests a surcharge of € 30,- pr. person, pr. night will apply. Brekka is a gorgeous place to stay, a real retreat from Reykjavik, 'fairly close but far enough'. The house is approximately 45 minutes drive from Reykjavík, only about 1,5 hours from the KEF airport. New at Brekka: glass fibre connection for Internet and TV. We also run the quality cottages 'Hamragil' by the town Akureyri up North (HL 1747494), 'Tvera' at the south coast of the Westfjords (HL 1747488) and 'Brekka' by the bay Hvalfjord just north of Reykjavik (HL 1717225).

Thank you very much, Carol. You apparently have noticed the strength of this cabin, the location so close to the famous natural sights, but at the same time the fullness of attractions and activity in the neighborhood.
