Árhvammur, is situated near the renowned swimming pool , Laugaskarð in Hveragerði, a small geothermal town, only 45km away from Reykjavík.

The house is 200 m2 (2153 sqft) with an open family/ kitchen area. It features 4 spacious rooms (sleeps 10 easily) and 3 bathrooms.

The spacious deck is wonderful for outdoor enjoyment, as well as the property itself, which is 11400 m2 (123,000 sqft) or (2.82 acres).

Located 45 km from Reykjavik, Hveragerði may be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field. Throughout the year, pillars of steam may be seen rising up out of the town – and in summer the town is truly a green community, abounding in trees. A green revolution is taking place as areas of woodland in and around Hveragerði expand, with the locals working together in order to further develop their blossoming town.

Easy to find, clean and cool interior design.

  • 5 of 5

Definitely worth a stay. The property is a good size and pretty cool inside. It also helps to be nearer to some of the best sites than you would be in Rek.

Kristin is very helpful

Perfect for seeing the Northern Lights

  • 5 of 5

Location worked for us as a home base. Every day we went in a different direction. Kitchen was well stocked for making meals for 10.

Bedrooms were very nice. Appreciated the toddler bed and pack n play. The toys and high chair were great!!

Loved the openness of the house with plenty of space for us.

The windows made it so bright and airy.

We saw the Northern lights 3 nights!! What a highlight of the trip.

Very comfortable and a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary and chose this house for the vacation. We loved being by the river and the walks around the house were great. The village is lovely with different things to see. The house itself was great. It was warm, had a very well equipped kitchen with a cupboard of herbs and spices for cooking and another with a variety of ingredients which we really appreciated as we cooked a lot. Lots of hot water in excellent showers, comfortable beds and chairs, lots of books, and a fantastic view. The location was great for the golden circle and for going along the south coast. The owner was very helpful with any questions and responded immediately when we had trouble working out the heating. I would definitely recommend it. We had a great time and would liked to have stayed longer.

Excellent location within the golden circle

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful location in Hveragerdi. Enough space for 4 adults and 4 teenager, particularly the large living room with open and well equipped Kitchen. Makes it easy to spend time inside if the weather is uncomfortable. Close to public pool and shops, restaurant etc. Perfect starting point to visit all the sights within the golden circle. The exchange with the ownership was uncomplicated and worked well. Highly recommended!
