The Bragdavellir Cottages are a set of log cabins located in east Iceland. Immersed in rural bliss and perfectly positioned on the edge of the Eastfjords, they are a perfect choice for those seeking a rustic, ambient escape.
Location & Nearby
Although they are just a 12 minute’s drive from the village of Djupivogur, the Bragdavellir Cottages are located in a beautiful countryside setting with magnificent views of mountains and the ocean. The only other building in sight for miles is the adjoining Barn Restaurant. Even so, Djupivogur has everything a traveller to Iceland could need, such as service centres and grocery stores; it also boasts some appealing attractions, such as a public artwork named ‘The Eggs of Merry Bay’.
Djupivogur is a southern village of the Eastfjords, one of the most untouched and breathtaking parts of Iceland. With abundant wildlife, towering mountains, spectacular bays and plenty of sites steeped in folklore, hours can be wiled away exploring this magnificent region.
Most visiting the Eastfjords and staying at the Bragdavellir Cottages do so as part of a Ring Road adventure circumnavigating the country; after all, the log cabins are just two hours from the last site of the South Coast, the magnificent Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, and an hour and a half from the capital of the East, Egilsstadir.
Facilities & Amenities
The Bragdavellir Cottages are either one or two-bedroom log cabins with a traditional, rustic style. The wooden furnishings and modest decor create an ambience of wonderful isolation that most coming to Iceland yearn for. Despite their simplicity, all have Wifi, TVs with DVD players and radios with CD players. In their main bedrooms, both variants have two single beds, and the larger log cabins also have a small room with a bunk bed.
The Barn Restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy dinner when it is open in summer due to its fantastic menu and beautiful terrace, which boasts mountain views. The fact that it is closed in winter has its bonuses; the fact its lights will be shut off means that the area around the log cabins will be dark enough for ideal Northern Lights hunting conditions.
