About our home

Small country cottage in Reykir at Reykjaströnd, next to the famous natural hot spring Grettislaug. Reykir is located in the stunning landscape of Skagafjördur in North of Iceland. The island Drangey, a birdwatching paradise, is close by.

Drangey island is a nesting colony for thousands of seabirds, including puffins, guillemots, gannets, kittiwakes, fulmar, shearwaters along with ravens and gyrfalcons. The island is a sheer sided palagonite rock aproximately 180m high and provides a wonderful view over the whole fjord. There are daily trips to the island from Reykir during the summer time.

Many different activities are available on the property. You can hike to mt. Tindastóll, walk to historic Glerhallarvík and test your luck with fishing pole in the beautiful black sand beach or bathe in natural hotspring Grettislaug located by the sea on the rockie beach in a walking distance from the cottage

About 3,5 hour drive from Reykjavík
