Brekka is located just off the main road up a 1km well maintained gravel road.
The actual turn is a little hard to spot but it is soon after a red roofed white building on the left opposite the Kalastadir farm road if you are approaching on route 47 (after travelling North through the tunnel) , it is very soon just round the next bend. If you get to Hotel Glymur you have gone too far.
During the day you can see the group of cabins up on the hillside but difficult at night.
Brekka is one of the last cabins you reach up the gravel road and enjoys a spectacular elevated position with astounding views.
The cabins are well spaced apart and you hear nothing from the other cabins.
This warm and comfortable rental is simply wonderful , huge open plan main space with wrap round giant windows offering views from sunrise to sunset (when we visited ,Oct).
Three double/twin bedrooms all with very comfortable beds and well thought out kitchen dining area with all you need for cooking meals.
A large modern bathroom with a washing machine , and of course the ideal hot tub just a few steps down from the enormous wrap round decking area around the cabin.
The hot tub is well screened from the (far away) other cabins and not overlooked.
We watched a small amount of aurora from the tub 2 out of 3 nights.
We barely used the upper lounge area as we were a small family group of 3.
Internet here is very fast and reliable.
From Brekka we did an easy day out across to the Geysir / Thingvellir area.
We also visited Langjokkul glacier (with "Into the Glacier") on a crystal clear blue skied calm day from Husafell. (an easy drive just over an hour away).
Reykjavik is only an hour away for a day out (and its only 2hrs or so to the international airport Keflavik).
The owner Jon is a very helpful host both before and during your stay and makes sure you have an excellent experience in his lodge.
We stayed for five nights in Brekka in early October, and absolutely loved everything about it. Perfectly situated for both Reykjavik and the Golden Circle, with some utterly jaw-dropping views out of the living room/kitchen windows.
The weather wasn’t the best while we were there, but we still made good use of the hot tub and cosy furniture after our long days exploring Iceland.
Jon was fantastic communicating throughout the booking process, and if anything, the place actually looked better in the flesh (wood?) than it did in the photographs.
One thing I will say is that it’s fairly difficult to find, especially if you’re arriving after dark, but Jon’s instructions went a long way towards minimising our confusion.
A thoroughly enjoyable week, and we honestly can’t recommend Brekka enough to fellow travellers.
Incredibly happy with my stay at the Brekka lodge! Amazing morning views and super cozy on the inside. Myself and the rest of the group (5 totall) had an awesome 3 nights.
The entrance view was a bit tough to see but we were also coming in late at night. Unfortunately no northern lights for us, but that is no fault of the cabins... we enjoyed the hot tub without them.
Don't think twice, this place was by far the best part of our entire trip. It's AMAZING!!!!
The hot tub is key and we spent every night in there. We cooked dinner on the patio with the grill. I can't say enough about this spot....
Staying at the Brekka was one of the highlights of our trip, as this very comfortable, clean and spacy lodge provided us with all the comforts we could have wished for after roaming around all day in the countryside.
