Many beautiful hiking trails are in the surrounding. Guests get directions if needed.

Other things to note

The cottage has a private hot tub and the control is by a blender straight in front of you when you open the store door. The blender is just like normal shower blender, heat control to right and flow to left.


The hot water is geothermal and you can find a little smell from it. It is because of the sulfur which is totally harmless and some say is very healthy for your skin.

Sometimes you can also see small white flakes in the hot tub. It is the sulfur, the same material as in the Blue Lagoon etc.

The hot tub with nice view is perfect for relaxing after long hours hiking in rainy and windy day. Room looks new, clean and neat. Panorama view is great. Owner and helper girl are very nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

Nice cabin, wonderful hot tub and great host. It was very easy to communicate with the host prior to and during our stay. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and he let us check in early (we were lucky that the cabin was not rented out the day before). We were able to take a nap then start our visit of Iceland. Thank you again Thorsteinn, we enjoyed our stay very much.

We were extremely happy with Thorsteinn's cabin. We only had a short stay in Iceland, so we packed in as much activity as possible and coming home each night to such a peaceful and relaxing environment really allowed us to recharge for the next day. We only stayed two nights but would have been happy staying for a week or two. His place had everything we wanted and more, we cooked, spent time in the hot tub, enjoyed the scenery, and slept like babies - it is so quiet compared to the city we live in.

We had a spectacular stay at Brattabrekka. The cabin is clean, cosy, and was perfect for our two night stay with our family of four. The place was so clean we had no qualms about our baby crawling on the floor. The hottub was wonderful and the view incredible. The deck and BBQ were also great resources. Lastly, it is very very close to Geysir and Gullfoss, and we were even able to do a day trip to Landmannalaugar from here. Would recommend this to everyone. Excellent value!

Our host Thorsteinn was always very prompt to answer any questions and very accomodating. Brattabrekka is in a very beautiful place overlooking a green valley with mountains in the background. All amenities were provided, even books and a deck of cards. We were very pleased to stay here; close to many sights and yet peaceful to have a rest after a whirlwind tour around the ring road. Thank you Thorsteinn.

This cabin would be an amazing place to spend a whole vacation. I only had the chance to spend one night here but between the complete comfort the cabin provided and the incredible view from the hot tub I never wanted to leave. It's a little off the beaten track but I was lead right to my cabin once I arrived at the main check in. Thorsteinn and his wife were friendly and gracious and made sure we had everything we could need and I would highly recommend as long a stay as you are able.

The host was helpful and came by quickly to help us with our query. The view from the hot tub was spectacular, and the cabin was clean and well designed.
