About Bjarni Thor Jonsson

I am a 70 years old lawyer working for the building department of the capital city Reykjavik in Iceland. I was born in Reykjavik and live there.

Bjarni Thor Jonsson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bjarni Thor Jonsson chose Flúðir

I have many relatives and friends in this area and was working on a farm as a young boy. I have always loved this part of the country with all its attractions and beautiful landscape.

What makes this cottage unique

When this ground came for sale 10 years ago I did not hesitate to buy it. I could choose from several situations but this one had it all. On a hillside with mainly grass, moss and blueberries late August and September and a great view from the hillside over to the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is very nice and comfortable with lots of space. Everything is new and in perfect condition. The owner is very friendly and helpsome. Sitting in the hottop you have a beautiful view of the mountains and the sunset. We recommend the house very much.

The cabin and location were perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. We had the chance to see the Northern lights. They were amazing. There was nothing to block our view. We used the hot tub 2 out of 3 nights. The location was perfected for the excursion we did. Would stay here the whole week next time.

Everything about this property has been great. Thoroughly clean, modern, comfortable, and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I couldn’t have been more impressed with either the property or the property owner. We were met at the location the day we arrived by the owner and shown all of the various features of Thorsholt (of which there are many). Thorsholt offers a stunning view of mountains across a valley from its perch high on a hill. Spacious and modern, the cabin kept us warm and comfortable as we enjoyed the environment Iceland had to offer. This trip will be fondly remembered by our family.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the cabin met or exceeded our expectations. My family of 5 spent Christmas at the cabin and it was such a treat for the kids to have a small but beautiful Christmas tree set up for them by the extremely gracious host Bjarni! He was so thoughtful and helpful.

The beds were comfortable and the sauna/hot tub was such a treat for all of us!Location was perfect as well for the day trips we wanted to do

Thorsholt log cabin is located close to the Golden circle with Kerid, Thingvellir, Laugarvatn, Gullfoss and Geysir. Next to it are many other places of interest like the old bishopric Skalholt, the Eco-village Solheimar and Bruarhlod the top of 10 km. long canyon formed by the river Hvita and not far away from several major attractions in South Iceland, with endless activities to choose from. One of the biggest horse riding centers in Southern Iceland, Syðra- Langholt is only few min away from Thorsholt log cabin. River rafting tours are on the Hvita River and geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa. Fludir village has a grocery store, restaurants, liquor store and swimming pool with hot tubs and a steam bath.

The location is ideal for a day tour drive to many interesting places in south of Iceland like Tjorsardalur and Landmannalaugar, Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss, Eyjafjallajökull and to take the ferry to Vestmannaeyjar.
