Our house is a magnificent old converted school house in the rural lowlands of south of Iceland.

We are perfectly placed; with proximity to many of the main attractions, with view of glaciers and volcanoes.

We are close to the beach and the mountains, and all amenities are a 10 min drive away.


We are ideal for any kind of group travel or gatherings:  family, friends, students, geologists, birdwatchers, horse lovers, walkers, cyclists, fishing enthusiasts, book-clubs, girls trips, boys trips, seminars, training and team building...

Or your group basically.


The house has an amazing spirit.  Everyone feels good in it.  

The air is so pure; stand outside and breath it in, inhale the vastness of the sky!  

We love it and are sure that you will too!

Fantastic for stargazing and Northern Lights  

With 360 degrees view all around. Our sunrises are wonderful and our sunsets amazing
