EGILSSTAÐIR EAST-ICELAND - COTTAGE FOR UP TO 4 PEOPLE!

Northeast Iceland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Fully equipped guesthouse for up to 4 people.

If you like it peaceful and quiet but not too far away from the main road, Álfabakki is the right choice!

In our beautiful area called Hróarstunga, there are only a few tourists and you can recover perfectly from a day full of impressions. In our area there are many things to explore. You can take a walk to the river Jökulsá and maybe see some seals, or climb up the mountain area to get a great view over our landscape. Not far away we have turf covered houses and a church and it is only 20km to the beach.

We are located only 5km from road nr.1, 20km north of Egilsstaðir.

We startet renting Álfabakki in may 2014. We were setting up the house with love to the detail and we are sure you will have a great and peaceful time. Outside of the house we have a great sitting-corner, where you can relax in the sunshine!

Stóri-Bakki is a horsebreeding farm. For everyone who is interested we offer riding trips around the area.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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.

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Álfabakki is a most remarkable place to stay and you will probably always remember this nice and cosy hut. I have rarely seen something comparable. The little house is fully equipped with much love to detail so that I felt at home immediately. The owners of the place are very nice. They are successfully breeding horses so that you may get an interesting insight in the Icelandic horse culture. They also offer riding tours, specially designed for you or your wishes, and can offer horses that will perfectly fit your needs. Very recommendable! I very much enjoyed my stay there.
