Perfect to enjoy the midnight sun and northern lights. Grate for daytrips (Dettifoss 34 km. Whale watching 59 km. Lake Mývatn 76 km. Ásbyrgi 2km. Horse riding, golf, bike rental 2 km a.o.) Great selection of hiking trails. WELCOME !
“Super nice accommodation right on the Asbyrgi gorge that I can recommend to 100%. The visitor center of the Natinalpark is about 2km from the accommodation, where you can inform yourself about various hiking routes. The house is very new and the beds are really comfortable for sleeping. The view of the gorge is a dream. When closing the front door you should strongly pull the lever upwards (closing system of Iceland), so that the lock can then lock accordingly. At the beginning we were a little too hesitant.”

“My best friend and I are traveling the ring road, so we only stayed one night. This place was perfect for that. Easy to check in, had everything we needed, and the beds were comfortable. The room was bit tight, but manageable for one night stay. We would stay again in the future.”
The apartment is in a two apartment house named HRAUNBRÚN. It is located by road no. 85, 42 km east of the „whale watching capital“ Húsavík and 16 km west of Ásbyrgi in Vatnajökull National Park. It is an ideal location to stay at when visiting these two major attractions, Húsavík and the National Park (with Ásbyrgi, Dettifoss and Hljóðaklettar). The apartment which has a living room with kitchen, private bedroom and a bathroom, was totally renovated in spring 2013 and everything is brand new, paint, floor, bathroom interior, kitchen interior, furniture, etc. The apartment can accommodate 4 persons, 2 in the living room (a convertible sofa bed) and 2 in the bedroom (real beds!). The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances and a dishwashing machine and the bathroom has a shower and washing machine and dryer. The house, with a spectacular view over the lake Víkingavatn, is located in a typical farmland with rich birdlife, tranquility and fantastic midnight sun. Nearest shop and gas station is in Ásbyrgi (16 km). Nearest swimming pool is in Húsavík (42 km). Open until August 15th.
“A good choice to stay between Asbyrgi Canyon/Dettifoss and Husavik. The room is big and clean with very good facilities. You can find washing machine and dryer, which are usually not in the regular accommodations. There are many birds staying around the farm. But make sure you are supplied well in the supermarket before checking in. :-)”
