About Sigurbjörn Björnsson

In 2010 when we bought this beautiful summerhouse. At that time it was fairly new and the interiour almost ready, but outdors remained lots of work to be done. Since then we have invested our time in building a new veranda, installing the hot tub and preparing a good playground. Now when everyting is in pristine condition we want to share this wonderful log cabin with others.

Great Time in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very great time in your cottage! Your cottage is very comfortable, and it felt like it was our real home. Nothing was missing there, and everything was clean and tidy. A really good thing at your cottage was the hot spot, we liked it very much to go in when it was evening.
The only thing, that was not so good, was, that in on the page of the cottage was written, that there in the cottage would be internet, but there wasn't. It doesen't matter very much but maybe you can change this for the next people, so that they know there is no internet.

At the end, I have to say it again, it was really wonderful there, and we would be happy to come there again!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5
We were 3 adults and 3 kids. The cabin was imperssingly equipped, clean and well maintained, with a few minor glitches (see below). The owner was very nice, friendly and responsive. Location is great for one-day trips to the golden circle or even Reykjavik, navigation from the main road is a bit tricky (owner met us and guided us in person - othrwise we wouldn't have found it...). Good supermarkets are 15 minutes drive away. No unpleasant surprises - description and photos provided an accurate picture of the place. The cabin is more adequate for 4-5 people, and if you plan to use it for 6 - get ready for a crowded place...

Things to improve: No microwave oven - a must have in a cabin; Bad odor from the sewer - needs some maintenance work.

Things to remember: great location, cozy place, well maintained, well equipped, friendly owner.

Cosy cottage with relaxing hot tub

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the summer cottage. Everything is made of wood. Very well decorated which gives a very cosy feeling. It's located in a quiet, secured area and the owner met us at a junction so we could find the house easily.
The hot tub was very relaxing after a day out. The rain made it even more special.
It is well located near the magnificent waterfalls of Gullfoss, close to Strokkur and Thingvillir.
Unfortunately we coudn't sit outside on the beautiful and large porch because of the bad weather.
We can surely recommend this cottage, the owner is also very helpful!

Cozy well-kept cabin in a great location

  • 4 of 5
High marks for cleanliness and amenities but location is the biggest plus here. You're nice and central to the sights of the Golden Circle, southern coast, and Reykjavik, and the proximity to Selfoss for groceries etc is ideal. Our daily outings even included the Glacier Lagoon of Jokulsarlon, although it was about 13 hours roundtrip. Many thanks to Sigurdbjorn for everything he and the family provided.

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE! (60 away from Reykjavik and 20 min. away from Selfoss town)

The cabin is located a short distance from all major nature pearls in South Iceland: Beautiful waterfall Gullfoss (The Golden waterfall) and the world famous geothermal site of the spouting hot spring Geysir and the National park Thingvellir, Kerid, a volcanic crater is within a walking distance. Solheimar, eccovillage, Laugarvatn Village and Spa Fontana where you can take a bath in the wonderful geothermal hot water. Skalholt a historical site, where history of Iceland was made for centuries. Waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss are around 1-1.5 hours drive away as is the glacier outlet Solheimajokull where is the possibility of glacier hiking with special glacier guides is always at hand. Thorsmork valley with endless possibility for longer and shorter hikes (4x4 necessary). The Vestman Islands are a true paradise for birdwatchers with the biggest population of puffins in the world as well as being the historic site for the volcanic eruption of 1973 when the eruption stared on the outskirts of the 5000 population town. To reach the islands you take the ferryboat from Landeyjarhofn, the sail only takes around 40 minutes. Thjorsardalur is a valley where one of the highest waterfalls in the country lies, named Haifoss. Jokulsárlon, glacier lagoon is around four-five hours drive away.

In direction north and north west you will find Hraunfossar (the lava waterfalls), Deildartunguhver, the geothermal hot spring with the most amount of running hot water per second in the world. Historic site Reykholt is in that area as well, but historian Snorri Sturluson lived there in the 13th century. The world famous Blue Lagoon is located on Reykjanes peninsula 20 minutes from the international airport and around 85 minutes away for the cabin. The location of the cabin is perfect for day trips to these locations, as well as to Reykjavík, the capital.

The cabin is located in a small summer house area, and the closest village is Selfoss, with approximately around 15 minutes drive away. There you will find all necessary services: Medical service, Supermarkets, Gas stations, Restaurants, Banks, Pharmacy, Liquor store, Museum, Golf Course, etc.

The cabin is equipped with a hot tub. The new swimming pool at Borg is extremely good for a country-side pool. It has small hot tubs for children a play area and a swimming area, and geothermal hot water, of course, which is standard for Iceland. It is also only a half an hour drive to Reykjadalur, from the cabin, where there are hot springs and warm rivers, making the place perfect for outdoor bathing.

There's only ten minutes drive to Öndverdanes Golf Club which is open for everybody and a very short distance to the swimming pools in both Hraunborgir and Minniborg, and Minniborg also has horse riding, mini-golf, and a small grocery shop. Kidjaberg Golf Club also has a little restaurant.

There's a Jetski rental at Lake Svínavatn and angling for example in Lakes Apavatn, Laugarvatn, Úlfljótsvatn, not to mention in Lake Thingvallavatn itself. Hvítá River is also very popular for rafting.

There is prolific bird-life in the area, making it perfect for birding and birdwatching. There are also several beautiful hiking trails to be found, with breath-taking view over the area. It is also possible to do snowmobile tours, super Jeep tours, glacier walking, ice climbing, riding lessons and horse riding tours, visit the cultural historical sites, in addition to experiencing the fantastic natural sites in the area.
