Having traveled for several years [with and without child(ren)] we can only endorse all the positive comments made already here.
During our 2nd stay in Iceland, we were happy to call Helluskogur our "Icelandic home" for 2 weeks. Not only its unique location (with a waterfall and the impressive Langá so near), but also the home decor was simply overwhelming.
The house has an open character and is built smart so that landscape, weather and light can be enjoyed day and night. Inside, all equipment is of very high quality and nicely organized, including some great toys for the kids, art and literature.
From here, even with young children who don't allow to make long distance trips, you can discover West-Iceland's nicest natural beauties and at the same time remain connected with the city of Reykjavik. A beautiful map of Iceland on one of the inner-walls inside allows to start dreaming about great trips one can make in Iceland. But this house is definitely one of the best places to start an IS-discovery.
Rob and Heidi, you have been amazing hosts for us. Thanks so much for your hospitality and good luck with all your activities.
Kindest regards from
