Guesthouse and farm Brekkulækur

Brekkulækur, heart and centre of our activities, is not only our home with an office and horse stable, but also a comfortable guesthouse situated in a peaceful rivervalley in northwest Iceland. The old house was build in 1936, has been carefully renovated and the rooms have been transformed into small, individual single and double with shared bathrooms. The newer part of the house harbours spacious double rooms with private facilities. In 2012, the latest extension was build, adding a bright apartment with ample space for up to 5 people and a cozy living room with a view over the river to the guesthouse. Altogether, the three connected
houses form a guesthouse with 34 beds and a small restaurant. Brekkulækur is an ideal gateway to Iceland’s beautiful north and some extraordinary sights are just a short drive away: seal colonies, the basalt formation Hvítserkur, waterfalls, and so much more!
Our little restaurant is open every day from 19:00 til 21.00 in June, July and August. We serve traditional icelandic dishes based on local ingredients: organic lamb from our farm, fish from the icelandic sea, vegetables form the green house and fresh icelandic milk products.
