Ásbrandsstaðir is near the sea, on the north side of Hofsárdal, about 7 km. from the village of Vopnafjörður along road nr. 917 toward the airport, then right on road nr. 920.
In the summerhouse is accommodation for 4-6 people. There is a good kitchen, bathroom, washing machine and a sundeck with a beautiful view.
Campground with all necessary conveniences, such as a kitchen area. The Vopnafjordur Golf Course has a diverse nine-hole challenge where it stands in rocky hills immediately south of Vopnafjordur. The unusual landscape surrounding the golf course, and scenic views to the mountains across the bay, make a round at the course a refreshing experience for golfers of all skill levels. We can provide our guest our golf equipment for free.
The last area postal delivery man in Iceland was Runólfur Guðmundsson who lived at Ásbrandsstaðir. His father, Guðmundur Kristjánsson was also “land-postman”. In memory of them we plan to set up a small exhibit here at Ásbrandsstaðir. Certainly the work of the area postmen was often extremely difficult as they struggled to deliver the mail in spite of opposition from nature and weather. Travel was either by horseback or on foot over mountains and wildernes areas.
