We booked this chalet near Hveragerdi as an operating base to visit the Golden Circle. When you drive from Reykjavik and enter Hveragerdi, you go right on the first roundabout. Then you can see Nupar on the right after about 2 km.
There is a house just before the chalets where you can pickup the key and pay for your stay.
The chalet was meticulously clean and everything needed was there. The chalet was quite small and the bedding was soft, but we had a very nice stay. The hot tob was indeed hot. You could check the temperature in the bathroom. The supermarket and the bakery is near the roundabout stated above. There is also a gas station with a liquor store.
Because we scheduled the Golden Circle tour the next day, there was enough time to visit the hot river near Hveragerdi. On the next day we visited the Kerið crater (there is an entrance fee), þingvellir, the geothermal area of Geysir and Gullfoss. After a beautiful day with blue skies we had a beer in the hot tub. I was thinking that this was the ideal situation for aurora borealis. You are outside the city and the weather was perfect (clear sky). That evening we were reading inside when suddenly the hostess appeared and informed us the northern lights were visible! It was beautiful with green and purple effects. We were grateful that we could experience it, because it was on our wish list.
Tip: The liquor store is open for a VERY short time. Check it at arrival.
