Cottage, lava and evening sun
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Our cottage is perfectly situated on the south coast if you plan to explore many of the islands wonders such as the GOLDEN CIRCLE and THINGVELLIR. Only 50 MIN. drive from/to REYKJAVIK and 10 MIN. drive to nearest town SELFOSS with 7000 inhabitants and all services. It feels remote but yet there is a restaurant with in a less than 5 min. drive.
The cabin got four beds / TWO bedrooms and a new sleeping couch in the living room. The kitchen got everything needed plus the world best water running - no extra costs! Also a small gas stove, fridge, cattle and coffee makers. There is a good gas grill standing in storage at the back, an excellent choice in the evening sun.There are always good chances of „dining out“ in Sóltún.
It s quiet surrounding is priceless. Distances are short and many of our nature jewels such as KERID, GULLFOSS, GEYSIR, the national park THINGVELLIR, mountain HEKLA and of course the famous EYJAFJALLAJOKULL are within a reach.
If you are traveling with kids they very likely find elves all around the cabin
In the spring time you will meet various bird species, newly landed for the summer. April and Mai are wonderful. So the summer and late summer is colorful with berries and mushrooms by the door. The autumn and winter is also amazingly nice and we reccomend Sept. and Okt. for foraign travellers if the weather gods are good.
You DO NOT need 4x4 wheel drive to visit Sóltún.
There is a security gate on the road.
On the south coast of Iceland there are old historic places from the old sagas such as Skalholt and Thingvellir, small towns, great scenery and short and comfortable travel to amazing VESTMANNAEYJAR - islands-,
In 10 minutes drive you will find excellent SWIMMING POOL at Borg with hot pools and watergliders. Good hamburgers, sandwitches etc. may be found at THRASTARLUNDUR just "around the corner " situated by the beautiful salmon river Sog.
