Brimnes hotel & log-cabins

- The hidden treasure by the arctic circle -
The mystical “peninsula of Trolls,” Tröllaskagi in icelandic, offers a wide variety of activities, all which can be enjoyed within the tranquility of fully furnished Finnish styled cabins at Hotel Brimnes.

The family run hotel is situated on the banks of a big lake, just under an hour drive north of Akureyri, in the quiet fishing town of Ólafsfjörður. Brimnes offers standard hotelrooms as well as 8 log-cabins, each with a private outside geothermal hot tub.

Even though the immediate surroundings of Brimnes are plentiful, guests should seize the opportunity to explore the Trollpeninsula. The hotel staff will gladly help suggesting trips around the area. There are four tunnels in the area of the mountain town Fjallabyggð, linking Ólafsfjörður & Siglufjörður on one side (16 km) and Ólafsfjörður & Dalvík on the other (18 km)

The list of activities includes:
  • ”midnightsunning”,
  • birdwatching,
  • whalewatching and sea-angling,
  • horseriding,
  • hiking,
  • kayaking,
  • scuba diving,
  • shorefishing,
  • visiting museums,
  • visit a fish factory and remote fishing towns,
  • sailing out to the arctic circle,
  • visiting Grímsey island.

If you’re planning to visit during winter, the snowy Tröllaskagi, almost at the end of the world,  is the place for viewing the northern lights (aurora borealis) and enjoying the peacefulness of the long arctic night.
