About Ágústa Erna Hilmarsdóttir
I love being close to nature, camping, fly fishing, watching wildlife being around animals and just listening to the sounds of birds. Even though I was brought up in the city I always long for enjoying our land and it´s energy. It brings me good emotions and I find it relaxing.
I have a boyfriend, Gisli and 2 stepdaughters 6 and 9 years old. We live in the city but we use every spear time to go to the summerhouse in Skorradalur.
I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2002, worked in the cancer unit for several years, have had a company called Hrif since 2005. At Hrif our main goal is to bring health promotion into companies. We assist companies to build up their future health policy, we do lectures and educational courses built in a positive and joyful way, to help the staff to stay focused how important it is to live our life in a healthy and nourishing way. Everything matters, our mind and body and surroundings and the people we meet, work and/or live with.

Why Ágústa Erna Hilmarsdóttir chose West Iceland
These 3 cottages are placed in this amazing valley, Skorradalur. Only 1 hour drive from Reykjavik (90 km). Skorradalur is known for calm weather and exceptional nature and has become one of the most popular cottage areas in Iceland for Icelanders. There you can see wildlife just before your eyes, beautiful fields, the lake of Skorradalur, forests and mountains. The cottages are small and simple but very nice. The location is great if you want to explore west of Iceland as day tour suits well for historical places like Reykholt, Husafell were the surroundings are f.ex. glaciers, waterfalls and many more. There is a little over one hour drive to the National park Þingvellir. Day trip to Snaefellsnes, Breidafjordur and the southern part of the Westfjords shows the best Iceland has to offer.
