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

We had one of the three-bedroom cabins with a perfect view of the fjord - fabulous, especially as we happened to be there during a beautiful period weather-wise. The cabins are pretty well-equipped, and the hot pot on the terrace very welcome, but don't expect anything on the TV unless your Icelandic is better than mine! Good wifi coverage, which... More

The bungalows are comfortable and well-equipped; having a bath in the hot tub was awesome, and a tour in Canoe in the bay was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and nice. We would highly recommend visitors interested in a stay in that nice place.

Cabins are big and with 3 bedrooms (up to 7 beds). Nevertheless, the two room upstairs are very unpractical. The stair is pretty ridicolous, 59 degrees steep. Dinner and breakfast of very low quality.

The hotel is a simple combination of a hotel and cottages in a small fishing village north of Akureyri. The rooms are quite simple but clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff members are friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the first floor of the building which featured very delicious fish dinners. Breakfast the next morning was in the... More

The hotel offers basic rooms with modern furniture and designed in the way it feels cozy and personal. The downstairs is taken over by restaurant. The food at the restaurant was locally sourced and it was one of the most delicious meals we have had on our Icelandic trip. Staff was friendly and welcoming, and gave us time explaining what...

We arrived and got upgraded. Such a lovely spot with a beautiful view on the lake. We even requested a bbq and had the best dinner! The jacuzzi was super nice, very use to operate as well. We will be back!!
