Why Maja Siska chose South Iceland
These very cosy summer cottages are a beautiful country hide away with Icelandic flair! Also a great location in the South of Iceland; within easy reach of great day trips and excursions, in summer even into the highlands. And very practical: 80km from Reykjavik and with the little traffic it is always an experience to drive over the scenic pass Hellisheidi to go to town:)
The cottages are about 4 km from our farm and we gladly assist you during your stay if you wish.
