We spent one week in February in Bifrost. Even with the hard weather, we were lucky to find this wonderful house, fully equipped. The view is just spectacular with endless mountains and colors at the rising sun, and we had the extreme chance to see northern lights for three nights. So imagine that with a glass of champagne in the jacuzzi!

Regarding the house itself, everything was very comfy, especially the beds that were absolutely great.

The owners are very nice people that helped us and made everything work fine.

Our only dream is to get the chance to come back soon!

Icelandic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Iceland was very enjoyable due to

the standard of the cottage and its position.

Everything inside the cottage was of a high standard, especially the beds. The underfloor heating was very effective.

The view from the windows was fantastic.

Volcano and riverside walks on the doorstep.

Being next to Route 1 made trips out easy (Gullfoss waterfall,Snefjellness Peninsular,Western Fijords and Reykjavik).

The only problem we had was finding the cottage at 02.00 in heavy rain as our flight landed at 23.30.

The Cottage is located an hour drive from the capital city, Reykjavik. Only 20 minutes drive from the cottage is a town, that includes 2000 inhabitants, called Borgarnes. In Borgarnes you can find all the service you need, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, a great 18 hole golf course, heated outdoor swimming pool and many other things. It takes only ten minutes to walk from the cottage to Bifrost, which is a small village of c.a. 500 inhabitants. In Bifrost you can find a small supermarket, a friendly cafe with a internet connection and just across the street there is a small, 9 hole golf course. Hredavatn is a fishing-lake that you can see from the window of the cottage and takes only 5 minutes to drive up there.

Birkihraun is perfectly located for mountain hikers, so many great mountain in just a walking distance from the cottage.
