Location & Nearby
Krakhamar Apartments are in East Iceland, on the edge of the region’s southernmost fjord, Alftafjordur, known in English as the Bay of Swans. The property is right on the Ring Road, making it a convenient place for travelers making their way around Iceland on Route 1.
The apartments are situated on a farm that offers spectacular views over the lagoon. The area is secluded enough that there’s no light pollution, making this a great place to see the northern lights in the winter. It’s also a fantastic destination for people who love the outdoors. The apartments are less than half a mile (about 1 kilometer) from the Barkinafoss nature reserve, and there are waterfalls, beaches, and mountains nearby to explore too.
The closest town to Krakhamar Apartments is Djupivogur, which is 14 miles (22 kilometers) away. In this town, you’ll find a supermarket, an indoor swimming pool, several restaurants and cafés, and museums. It’s also possible to take a boat trip out to the island of Papey, where you can see a large colony of puffins.
Thanks to its Ring Road location, it’s also easy to reach some of Iceland’s most famous attractions. Svartifoss waterfall and Skaftafell glacier are both about 130 miles (200 kilometers) away to the west. If you head north from the apartments, you’ll find the East Iceland Heritage Museum roughly 100 miles (170 kilometers) away. There are also several beautiful waterfalls in East Iceland, all of which are easy to reach by car.
