This summer, in the summer of 2020, it is possible to rent the studio apartment on the ground floor. The seafront at Melar guesthouse has two hot tubs, Bakkaböðin, where guests can enjoy a relaxing time and also go for a swim in the ocean in an exclusive setting. Around there the birdlife is diverse, the lighting is unique and the peace and quiet along with the barren nature are dominant. The area is distinctive in terms of diversity in birdlife and there are bird watching houses in Kópasker. The village of Kópasker is about an hours’ drive from Húsavík, about 37 km from Ásbyrgi national park and Hljóðaklettar as well as only 60 km from Dettifoss waterfall. The village is a part of the Arctic Coast Way which receives increasing attention from tourists who choose to travel and experience roads less traveled in the northern part of Iceland.
