Old farmhouse in south Iceland, from there you have a great view along the coast line and to the mountains nearby. Good location for travelling in south Iceland. Many nice attractions nearby.

The space
The house is an old farm house, build in 1939 by my grandfather Tómas Þórðarson and grandmother Kristín Magnúsdóttir. The house was reconstructed by me and my father in 2007. It is a typical Icelandic farmhouse from that time small but cozy. The small hill that the house is build on has been building up since the first farm was build there around the year 1200.

Where you’ll be

Hvolsvollur, Rangarvallasysla, Iceland

Our area is called Eyjafjöll (island mountains). It is south of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier and volcano (island mountain glacier). Agriculture is the main sector for the people living in the area. The surrounding is nice, black and coast, green farmland, steep hills and mountains and then the glacier so we can say that the surrounding is very diverse. We have nice waterfalls like Seljalandsfoss (62 m high) (15 min drive) and Skógafoss (62 m high) (15 min drive) as well as many others. It is only about 20 min drive to the glacier Sólheimajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. About 30 min drive to the black sand beach and the basalt collums at Reynisfjara, Reynisdrangar and Dyrhólaey (southernmost part of Iceland). The small village Vík is only about 40 min drive away. We have the geothermal pool Seljavallalaug only about 15 min drive away from Vallnatún. And if you like to see the famous airplane wreck on Sólheimasandur then that is only abou 20 min drive. We have some of Iceland most respected activity companys nearby, like Arcanum that offers glacier walk, ATV tours and snowmobile tours (30 km). Southcoast Adventure (20 km) that offer super jeeps tours. Horse riding tour company Skálakot (8 km). Óbyggðaferðir ATV tours (20 km). There are many good hinking trails in the area. If you have rental car then it is easy to do day tours to Skaftafell National Park, Jökulsárlón (glacier lagoon), Golden Circle (waterfall Gullfoss and geyser Geysir and Strokkur). Þingvellir National Park. In summer then you can also do some tours to the highlands like Landmannalaugar hot spring area. There are some restaurants nearby like Gamla fjósið (10 km), Hótel Skógafoss and Fossbúð (17 km). Halldórskaffi and Suður-Vík (47 km). Hótel Anna (8 km). Gallery pizza (37 km)
