“Great cabin in a great location”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
people found this review helpful

The cabin is just as described in the details given. Well equipped, warm and cosy with a wood burning stove that can really pump out heat (but plan on buying a bag of wood at the supermarket in Selfoss unless the previous renters have left you some). It's on an 'estate' of similar cabins,so you're not completely alone, but they are all at least 30m apart.

The location is really good. It's about an hour's drive east of Reykjavik. This means that you can easily visit Guyser, Gulfoss and other places on this section of the Golden circle AND you can also access the A1 coast road and drive to Vik, which takes you past some truly wonderful waterfalls.

If you are up for a drive of 4 1/2 hours each way you can visit the Glacier Lagoon. We did, and it was well worth it. Just a little tip though. If you plan to go to GL don't stop and look at anything on the way there or you'll never get there. Note places that you want to see and stop on the way back when you know how much time you've got. Plan another day to do the section from the cabin to Vik and back, then you can spend time at each of the waterfalls in this area. There is a nice little petrol station/cafe/burger bar at the roundabout at Kirkjubaerjarklaustur.

My other recommendation is don't skimp on car hire. Between arriving on Saturday afternoon and leaving on the following Thursday (giving us 4 full days for sightseeing) we drove 1,000 miles. We'd hired a Volvo XC60 from Thrifty at the airport. One look at the deeply treaded winter tyres with metal studs and I knew we'd chosen the right car from the right hire company.
