Our hosts had been welcoming and accommodating from booking, right through to meeting us at the roadside (we were late, there's so much to see on the way from the airport but it wasn't a problem). The cabin itself is very cosy and homely and in a fantastic location, the main sights are within easy reach and you can even make Jokulsarlon in a day if you set off early. Coming 'home' to the lovely warm underfloor heating and a relax in the hot tub was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning to Iceland one day. And... we were also fortunate enough to experience the Aurora... twice!

Modern and yet homey and comfortable. We enjoyed the simple family farm photos mixed in with the modern furnishings. Every appliance we could possibly need at our fingertips. Beds covered with fluffy duvets. Most convenient washer and laundry area! And the hot pot; most amazing views to settle us in for the evening! An unexpected pleasure was meeting the owners. Excellent hosts and people I hope to meet again!

Auch für Touren ins Hochland (Kerligarfjell und Hvervellir) ist Geysir Valley ein idealer Ausgangspunkt. Die Hütte ist sauber und bestens ausgestattet. Ein Bad im hauseigenen Heißwasser-Pool inmitten herrlicher Natur bietet ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Die Unterkunft kann uneingeschränkt empfohlen werden.
