BIRD SAFARI

 

The cottages at Kaldbakur are situated next to Kaldbakstjarnir Lakes, an outfall from the geothermal electricity plant which supplies Husavik with electricity. The cottages sit just above a major nesting area for birds. There is a beautiful bird sanctuary between the cottages and the fjord with walking trails throughout. Many Icelandic bird species can be observed straight from the cottage terraces. Binoculars are to be found in every cottage.

DIAMOND RING ROAD

Here is the webpage for Diamond circle. Kaldbakskot is strategically located by the exceptional Diamond ring road. Many of the most stunning  and beautiful places in Iceland are on the route; to mention a few: Ásbyrgi, Hljóðaklettar, Dettifoss, Mývatn, Jarðböðin, Námaskarð Dimmuborgir and Goðafoss.

Here is the first webpage made by the founder of Kaldbaks-Kot.

HORSE RIDING

The first people to settle Iceland brought horses with them from Norway, as well as other domestic animals. The horses, now called Iceland horses, are small and sometimes referred to as ponies. The breed has been isolated in the country for over 1100 years and is therefore considered a unique breed. Just 3 km (2 mi) from Kaldbaks-Kot you can go horseback riding at Saltvík.

GUEST REVIEW

The photos do not do this place justice. The land they the cottages are on is simply spectacular. There is much to explore and discover along the footpaths and there are various hot tubs all with great views across the water looking towards the epic mountains on the other side of the bay. The cottages are simple and cozy and have pretty much all you need.  August 2019 Tripadvisor
