A last minute booking for an overnight stay in the chalets at Olafsfjordur turned out to be a treat. The little row of pine log cabins is administered from the hotel over the road and although the quoted image of a cabin on the waters edge is strictly true, it is misleading because the “water” is a dead-end tail off...

Stayed here as part of a road trip around Iceland. We arrived at the hotel after popping out of the tunnel from the adjacent fjord. We left by popping into the tunnel into the next fjord. Whilst there may be other roads in/out this gave it a nice feeling of being nestled between the mountains and just the right balance... More

We stayed just one night as we were heading west, the cabin was very comfortable and the hot tub was soon put to use as we watched the sunset! Very quiet location and somewhere my wife and I would stay again.

Even we payed for a small cabin they gave us a bigger one. Staying there was comfortable with all equipment we needed. The cabin is just by the lake with a wonderful view on mountains. And the hot tub outside gives you a real Icelandic experince :-)

As others have said, the view here is wonderful! The hotel itself is set back from the fjord, with the cabins in front. Two of the cabins have the most incredible view - right on the lakeside, with a hot tub and sitting area on the deck - what a place to watch sunset! Stunning reflections in the fjord. I... More

In a country that has more beauty that you can believe, the view here is one of the most amazing I saw in Iceland. I wish we had planned to stay more than one night. We originally had booked one of the rooms in the main hotel, but when we arrived found out that one of the small cabins was... More

Olafsfjordur does not have all that many attractions, but we loved staying in our own cabin for one night. The cabin slept 4, with a queen in the loft and two twins in a room downstairs. The ladder to the loft look a little challenging, so my husband and I opted for the twin beds! The hot tub on the... More

We enjoyed one of Brimnes three bedroom cabins for three nights. The cabins are located right on the edge of the lake and the view is simply stunning. Well appointed and very clean, the cabin even had a very well stocked kitchen that even included basic food staples. There is one bedroom on the main floor and the other two... More

Magnificent location. Cabins are clean, warm and functional. Kayaks and rowboats available a few feet from the cabin so that the lake is easily accessible. Staff were warm, kind and decent. This is a rustic location. Walking through the town at night was lovely. Highly recommended if you know and understand what you're looking to do in this region of... More
