About the neighborhood
There's great view over Hvítá River from the cabin and short distance to all major nature pearls in South Iceland: Gullfoss and Geysir, Thingvellir, Kerið, Sólheimar, Laugarvatn Village, Skálholt, Arnarker, Landmannalaugar, Skógafoss, Háifoss, Thjórsárdalur, Jökulsárlón and Reykholt, Baula, Hraunfossar and Paradísarlaut in Borgarfjörður, and Keilir and Blóa Lónið on Reykjanes. The cabin is perfect for day trips to these locations, as well as to Reykjavík, since it is so conveniently located only an hour's drive from the capital.

There's only two minutes drive to one...

Getting around
You will need a car to get to our cabin and we recommend a 4x4 during the winter season. It may not snow in Iceland during the winter, but it can. Thus, it is better to be safe than sorry.

Due to a contract we have with a rental car agency, we can offer a coupon that gives you a 5% discount in their rates. They otherwise offer a 15% discount if prepaid upon booking.
