Our seniors tour group of 22 came down the gravel road from Highway 1 to have lunch at Fjallakaffi on the farm. Looking briefly around the farm, I think it probably is a very nice place to camp or rent a cabin. It's sooo peaceful...More

Just went here for lunch today as part of a group tour. The lamb soup with fresh bread (think it was soda bread) was amazing. Staff all friendly and helpful. It was very, very snowy so difficult to walk around but a beautiful place nonetheless.

One of the best camping we had, really in the middle of nowhere. The feel is unique, huge spaces around and mountains on the horizon. Nice restaurant with good food.
