Stóri-Bakki is operated by us, Tina & Benni. We bought our farm in 2009 and in 2012 we decided that we also want to work with tourism. The dream of our guesthouse Álfabakki came true and we are happy to welcome you here in beautiful East-Iceland. We know this part of the country very well and can give you a few tips of what to do and to see.
Tina & Benni purchased this cottage in 2014
We have been living in all parts of Iceland, but in 2009 we decided to settle down in the beautiful east. Bennis family is from a fjord called Eskifjörður. We wanted to live near Egilsstaðir, because the area here is perfectly for horsemanship, which is our main income. The east part of Iceland is known for its real winter and real summer. In the south part there can be a lot of rain in every season. Here we have beautiful snowy winters and really warm summers with temperatures around 25 degree.
Our cottage Álfabakki is a very cosy and you will for sure like it! It is located in a quiet and peaceful area with no other tourists around you. Over the summer it is often very warm in our area and you can relax outside, we have garden furniture in a sheltered corner at the house.
