The Hushed Residency

The pause before winter comes, Iceland’s quietest time, fewer visitors, sheep are gathered in the fjord, and great silence falls as the world turns punctuated by autumn wind. A meditative and creative time in the fjord. You may see some snow flurries.

No more Night Residency

Patches of winter snow in the mountains along the fjord will begin to vanish.  Your days begin about 20 hours long and reach 22 hours before your stay at Brekka comes to an end.  The grass grow longer, the sheep appear in the fjord with their lambs after a winter in the sheep sheds.

Thaw Residency (the last astronomical twilight)

The last of the winter snows signal a change.  The ice breaks up in the fjord, the waterfalls are gushing, and the night (absolute dark) is replaced by astronomical twilight (when the Sun is between 12 degrees and 18 degrees below the horizon). The days start out at 16 hours long and quickly moves to 19 hours before your residency ends.  You will have plenty of light to work.
