Where you’ll be

Hvolsvöllur, Iceland

The cottage is located in an quiet and beautiful area, which is perfect as starting point to discover South Iceland. During the summer there is a mini market, which is also a café and restaurant, only a few metres next to you. Our farm is about 200 meters away and sometimes we have our sheep and horses on the field next to the house. If you walk just 10 minutes from the cottage you can discover the Rútshellir Cave, which is man-made.

If you're going to drive easterly there are many beautiful places. Only 5 minutes away there is the Skógafoss waterfall and a little further you can get to the parking for the Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck. The beautiful town Vík is approximately 30 minutes away. If you want to visit it, you should definitly make a detour to Reynisfjara (the infamous black beach) and Dyrhólaey (a small peninsula), as they are right on the way to Vík.

Surely there are also beautiful places to the west of your cottage. If you want to swim in one of the oldest pools in Iceland, which is also a natural hot water spring, the Seljavallalaug pool is only 8 minutes away. A 20-minutes drive separates you from the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Gljúfrabúi. A little further you can drive to Hvolsvöllur, a smaller town with supermarkets, museums and much more, it's just 35 minutes away.

Of course, you can also take day tours from the cottage. You could for example drive to the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón (228km), Gullfoss and the Geysir (140km) or the national park Skaftafell (175km).
