There were 3 of us, and we wanted to see Vopnafjordur and the old farmhouse museum there. We also wanted to stay close to road 1 to be able to go to Askja.
That's why we rented a nice wooden cottage in Sireksstadir with all the kitchen facilites, so that we could cook and have a good rest. The bedroom was very comfortable, so was the sofa in the living room, where the 3d person slept. There are a lot of windows in the cottage, so you can see the mountains and sheep.
The hosts helped us out with the car, showed their farm and advised us where to go. There is an excellent open swimming pool within 15-20km, which happenned to be free after 21.00. The road is good, and the pool is situated on by a river, in a beautiful place.
