“Superb villa in a fantastic location”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Our second trip to Iceland and the Viking Villa was a fantastic treat.
Inga and Maggnus are superb hosts and we received a warm welcome and great hospitality from them - Their advice was as ever excellent, helping us get the best out of our break.
We toured the Golden Circle again and ventured west into Rekjavik, enjoying the culture and entertainment on offer, and had a great day at the Blue Lagoon. The weather was a stunning mix giving us about a seasons worth in a few days, and as ever the spectacular seclusion of the villa gave us the opportunity to rest and relax despite being a short drive from everything you could want to visit.
We highly recommend it!

“What an amazing trip to Iceland”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We were met by Magnus who made us very welcome and explained everything about the villa and the surrounding area. The views in every direction were amazing with the villa situated in a lovely unpopulated area. The village of Fludir is only a few minutes car drive away if you want supplies from the shop or to have a meal in the Hotel (which was very nice) or in the restaurant behind the shop (Also very nice). We all loved collecting eggs from the hens in the morning. If you want to do something a bit different I would recommend calling Joi (A local Guide, Magnus will give you details when you arrive) who has a large 4x4 and offers tailor made tips where ever you want to go at half the price of any of the other online 4x4 tours.
We visited one of the glaciers which was a highlight of the holiday.

We were very lucky to see the Northern lights for 3 nights, which were amazing.

Would recommend this villa to anyone and we will certainly be going back at some point in the future.

The night before you arrived, we were admiring the Northern Lights ourselves and we really wished you were here already. We're glad the conditions kept on being so favorable. We send our warmest regards from Iceland.

“Fantastic first trip to Iceland!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Magnus and Inga made us really welcome at Viking Villa. The villa is situated in a beautiful area with lovely landscapes. My sister and I enjoyed feeding the hens and playing on the trampoline. The fresh salad and strawberries from the local market garden were delicious. Hopefully the family can return to Iceland again.

In the heart of the Golden Circle, this house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable.

Best driving directions from the airport ever!

The owners were friendly and helpful.

Great view from the house.

“Wonderful holiday in Iceland at Viking Villa.”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Viking Villa is a beautiful house well situated to visit some of Iceland's best attractions. Whether you are casual tourists, hikers or fishing enthusiasts, this is a great location. The house itself is extremely attractive, clean and super-functional. Inga and Maggnus are wonderful hosts who are available to assist with questions-- or to stay away if that's your preference. This is a great rental.

“Luxurious, comfortable Home away from home”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A wonderfully clean, excellently appointed home in a gorgeous setting. We stayed here for our entire week's vacation in Iceland and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location is central to many of the well known landmarks such as Geysir, Gullfoss and Reykjavik city, all within short distance drive. The home is comfortable and cozy, with all the modern amenities. The landlords were attentive to every detail of our stay. The added bonus of farm fresh eggs from the nearby chicken coop was wonderful. The mountainous views and nearby fields of Icelandic horses were awesome. We can easily recommend this place!
