The 5 nights we spent at Signy's home with our two children were the highlight of our trip to Iceland. After spending 2 nights in Reykjavic exploring the city and parts of the Golden Circle, arriving arriving at Signy's felt like we were finally off the main tourist trail and really experiencing Iceland. The house itself is beautiful, comfortable and well appointed and Signy and her family were very accommodating. We were there in August, so really enjoyed the sunny front porch overlooking the lake and other outdoor spaces. From the house, we explored the area with a local guide from Iceland Activities who was amazing. In nearby Hveragerði we hiked to a hot spring bath, swam in a waterfall, explored biking trails, and even ventured to the black sand coast for a surf session. Returning to Signy's house at the end of a long day was perfect…and waking up to fresh espresso in the morning wasn't bad either!
