Our cosy cottage is only 38 km from Reykjavík but feels fantastically remote. Being situated quite high in the hill it benefits with magnificent views, overlooking Hvalfjordur, Eilifsdalur, Midfjordur and its surrounding mountains, rivers and ocean.

The space
Great location, only 35 minute drive from Reykjavik and 1h 20min drive from Keflavik international airport and Fagradalsfjall Volcano. The location is great for those who wish to explore the surroundings of West and South Iceland as it is close to the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park.

We are Biggi and Maria, a musician and a photographer.  We recently moved back to Iceland after 10 years abroad studying and working in London, Glasgow and Paris.  Moving back was a dream come true about having a peaceful family cottage in our home country. Exclusive, but surrounded with beautiful nature.  As well as being parents and nature lovers we are also working professionals so for us the cabin is perfectly located in just a short driving distance from the vibrant culture Reykjavik has to offer. We love the outdoors; fishing, hiking, horse riding and skiing and our cottage in Eilifsdalur and its surroundings fulfil most of our needs. We have two daughters, Hera 16 years old and Katla 3 years old who both love Eilífsdalur.  Katla especially loves to pick the blueberries in the Autumn and to pet the Icelandic ponies, which sometimes run freely in the valley.  And our much travelled teenage daughter really knows how to appreciate the fresh air and the solitude.  She tends to celebrate her 17th year old birthday at the cottage next summer.
