The cottages are easily reached in 2 hours from Kevlavik airport. We used the cottage as a base for day trips in SW Iceland. For this purpose Minniborgir Cottages are excellent. We made it even to Jøkulsarlon (Icelake) in the East along Ringroad1. In June 24 hours daylight make this possible (we returned to Minniborgir at 2 in the night). All other highlights are easy day trips from Minniborgir. The attractions keep you busy for at least 2 weeks. We rented a ordinary car and were able to reach all attractions without any problem.
The cottages are comfortable and very well equipped. Nearest shopping is in Selfoss. 22 km away (we recommend Bonus marked at road 1 direction to Hella). Minniborgir is currently extended with additional cottages and a restaurant and other facilities. This leads to considerable construction noise during the week. Therfore we only give 4 stars instead of excellent. The situation may improve after the construction work. more
