Are you looking for a peaceful and secluded cabin in the woods of North Iceland, complete with hot tub access? Look no further than Bakkakot 1, a cute and cozy cottage on the outskirts of a small fishing village near Akureyri, surrounded by a gorgeous forest.
Location & Nearby
The Bakkakot 1 cabin is approximately 20 kilometers (about 12.5 miles) from Akureyri, the capital of North Iceland. Akureyri has plenty to offer tourists. There are several excellent restaurants and pubs as well as some fantastic attractions.
Highlights in the area include the botanical gardens, the Akureyrarkirkja church, and the Laufas turf houses.
Closer to the cabin and just a few minutes' walk away is the village of Hjalteyri. This small village, even by Icelandic standards, has roughly 40 inhabitants. What it might lack in residents, it makes up for in beauty and charm.
The village is right on the coast of the Eyjafjordur fjord, so it has incredible views of the stunning blue waters. There are ice-capped mountains in the background, too. This area is a great place to hike and take some gorgeous photos.
Hjalteyri village is a beautiful place to visit for an afternoon. The village restaurant is open during the summer, and there are even whale-watching tours from here. You can also hire a kayak to spend a fun day on the water.
Other village amenities include a public hot tub and a diving center. There's a cultural center open to the public, which runs exciting exhibitions during the summer months. But don't worry if you prefer to relax on vacation — you can sit back and enjoy the mountain views.
From Bakkakot 1, it is easy to travel to many of the fantastic sites of North Iceland, including Lake Myvatn, the waterfalls of Dettifoss and Godafoss, and the Asbyrgi Canyon.
