Hear the Singing
All that breaks the stillness is the song of the birds
In the early Spring, birds arrive from all parts of the world. They are dressing in the finery of their summer colours for the mating season while the days are growing longer as summer approaches. The lake is as clear as glass in the stillness of the evening twilight, broken only by the birdsong.
We are high in the North, on the Tröllaskagi Peninsula at the Brimnes Hotel and Bungalows, located on the banks of Ólafsfjörður. It offers 11 double rooms with bath, and 8 Finnish-style log cabins, accommodating 5–6 people each. The self-contained holiday cottages are perfect for families or groups and include a lounge, kitchenette, bath, ground-floor bedroom and sleeping loft for the kids, as well as a cosy, private hot-tub on each veranda, where you can relax over a bottle of wine from the hotel’s extensive wine list. Whether you are relaxing or involved in the exertions of an active sport, the hotel’s restaurant offers everything from quick snacks to full course meals.
Hotel manager, Axel Pétur Ásgeirsson, is always on hand to advise and organise sightseeing and activities in the region: boat trips, trout fishing on the lake, whale-watching, mountain hiking, kayaking, diving, skiing, horse riding, golf, river rafting, snowmobiling, art exhibitions, museums historical places of interest and, of course, bird watching and more.
