Brúarhvammur, is within the town of Hveragerði, the hot spring capital of the world. The reason is geothermal heat the town is built above a hot-spring field, only 45 km away from Reykjavik.

The house is 255 m2 with an open family/kitchen area. It features 2 rooms (sleeps 6 easily) and 2 bathrooms. The spacious deck is wonderful for outdoor enjoyment, as well as the property itself, which is 3500 m2.

Few communities in the world can claim to have an active thermal site in the centre of town. Hveragerði´s, most precious gem is it´s geothermal park. There can not be many towns in the world with hot springs literally in peoples back yard. The geothermal park is centrally located and is open every day in the summer time. A natural clay foot bath can be enjoyed in the park and afterwards you can soak your feet in one of the hot springs.

The last weekend in june Hveragerði host an annual flower show that shows all the best from Icelandic gardening og horticulture. You wouldn´t miss it for the world.

The swimming pool at Laugaskarð is renowned for its lovely setting as well as excellent facilities, including hot pots, whirlpool pot and a natural steam bath. The pool is heated with steam coming directly from the ground and because of this many consider it to be good for your health.

Walkways and footpaths within town limits are excellent. Somewhat to the north of town is one of the country’s largest geothermal areas, Hengill, where plumes of steam can be seen for miles. Hiking and riding trails stretch from the town throughout Ölfusdalur valley, into the Hengill volcanic area and all the way to the Nesjavellir geothermal area and Þingvellir National Park. Along the way are warm springs where bathing is possible.

Real home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was the most lovely property and really made our stay in Iceland very special indeed. In 8 days of travelling we did not see anywhere we would rather have been. It is a lovely house and just felt so homely and as we were there for a family reunion that was important to us. Valdis has thought of everything to make you stay comfortable and relaxed.

Hverageroi is a lovely village with everything you could need available and we thoroughly enjoyed having the lovely warm swimming pool just around the corner and the hot river walk only a mile or so away!

We didn't have a lot of opportunity to enjoy the garden as the weather was very mixed but we did have a BBQ one day and just loved sitting down by the river.

A truly, truly special place which we would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the luxuries of home life in Iceland.

Beautiful House in Hveragerdi

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the property don't do justice to the actual house and land. The house is perfect for a family of 6 and is located in quiet area of town. Plenty of room for all with large stream out the back door with fire pit that we actually used. Centrally located to all of the sites you want to see in Southern Iceland. House is in great shape with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Two full baths served the 6 of us with no concerns. Getting in and out of town was a breeze to see the sites. Town is located in Geothermal area with many hot springs. There is a great hike (3.5km) in town up the mountain to the best hot spring/stream/pools area around. Soak your body while enjoying the views around.

Everything Was Five Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 have just returned home from spending an entire week in Iceland. Iceland is a beautiful country with friendly and accommodating people. Valdis's home made the perfect vacation even more perfect! The home is absolutely spectacular while being situated in a totally natural setting on the edge of a beautiful river. The outside of the home is surrounded by several comfortably furnished outdoor living areas. We enjoyed the swimming pool at Laugaskard which is only a 5 minute walk away. The property and the location are perfect for visiting the entire southwest of Iceland. Every evening after day long touring, we felt like we were returning to our very own private retreat, a luxury private retreat right here in Iceland. We could not have been more pleased with the arrangements we made to stay in Hveragerdi. Our only recommendation is to reserve this property as early as possible!

Thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect for our group of six adults. This location allowed us to cover the southwestern corner of Iceland and the comfortable atmosphere to relax and enjoy family.

We did struggle with the washer and dryer, I suggest directions in English to properly operate.

Absulutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The facilities, the decor, the comfort was all top notch. As well, the setting - at the edge of the river - was fantastic. We wish we had had more time, outside our busy activity schedule, just to enjoy our beautiful vacation home!

Amazing home in stunning country!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Iceland in July. The country is by far the most beautiful location we have ever visited from a nature's perspective, and Valdis' home was the perfect base camp for exploring it! The house is stunning; set between a birch grove and a river, it has large windows that let in tons of light and bring into the living area the peaceful views that surround you. It is beautifully appointed and very clean, with everything you may need for your stay. We are a family of four and we cooked dinners at home often; there is a supermarket in town with the basics and the kitchen has every implement you may need. Violette, Valdi's friend that showed us the property, is the sweetest person in the world. Don't miss the opportunity to visit her art studio, where you can find beautiful jewelry, porcelain and even clothes! And Valdis is a wonderful host; the Icelandic White Ale that was in her welcome basket became our new favorite beer in the world!. From the house you can comfortably visit the Golden Circle, Reykjavik as well as the blue lagoon. I love the outdoors, and the house let me feel like I was camping in the most luxurious of settings. And the 24 hours of daylight... I could not believe I was sitting outdoors at 9 pm, listening to the river sounds and reading a book; so peaceful. We loved our stay in this property and would definitively come back if our travels find us in Iceland again!

Before I forget, Valdis was very easy to work with; the reservation process was a breeze and it was very refreshing to work with somebody that values your word as much as any contract. Thank you for sharing your home Valdis! If for some strange reason you decide to visit Houston, give us a call!
