Great environment

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful house in a quite place. Like a ship in the mountain governing the valley of Laugarvatn.
Iceland is a nice destination to travel, and if the weather gives you two weeks of sunny days, the experience is unforgettable.... can you expect anything else?

Wonderful

The summerhouse is located in the Laugarvatn area, South of Iceland. The golden circle (Geyser & Gullfoss) is only 45km. away. The house lies up in a hillside, overlooking the valley, the lake and the mountains. The view is fantastic.

It takes 2-3 minutes to drive to downtown Laugarvatn village, where you can bathe in natural warm water, or use the local swimming pool. There are restaurants, shops and bistro´s in the village.

Nearby there are several attractions such as Skálholt, Kerid (Crater) and a small family zoo. There are also golf courses in the area.

During the first week in August there is a festival for all of Iceland, and Laugarvatn has had interesting family programs with bond fire and music.

South of Iceland is where most of tourist attractions are. Thingvellir, old Althingi is one of the major routes lying to Laugarvatn. Jökulsárlón, the glacier lake is further east.

Other Activities: Natural warm water,

Golf: There are several golf courses around in the area. A open mini golf area can be found in a nearby summerhouse area.
