Fljótsbakki is an excellent place to enjoy The Northern Lights due to its vastness and no light pollution. It is a great option to stay for a longer period and do day-trips to explore the best of North Iceland in one go!.

It offers a superb location, centrally based in the north region, between the towns of Akureyri (38 km.), Mývatn (40 km.) and Húsavík (Known for Whale Watching Tours 50 km.)

It is also at the gateway to the highland road Sprengisandsleið which leads to Aldeyjarfoss, SprengisandurAskja and other extraordinary places.

Laugar is 15 km. away, with their excellent swimming pool and The Mighty Goðafoss  (The Waterfall Of The Gods) is only 4 km. away.


We are looking forward to welcoming you in our little quiet shelter.
