At lodge Brekka you sure have a warm welcome, independent of weather. You'll feel comfortable in the nice open space of the house and the big terrace around, enjoying the privacy of the site. The inviting geothermal tub is discretely placed in the bushes of the birch midst in the pure nature. The location is superb with a great view on the bay and the Atlantic Ocean below with ever changing shades of light, and the mountain Sulur in the other direction. A little creek makes the border of the property as it flows by in the gully. The lodge Brekka (means slope) is a beautiful new house, finished in 2013. It is sitting nicely in the hillside, hence the name. For 6 people you have a lot of space, additionally there is a double bed couch in the open space upstairs, ideal for kids.

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 'Holt' south of the great sights Geysir and Gullfoss (HL 7490738).
