The area the house is in was so beautiful and we could have spent all our time there.As it was Iceland is amazing so we did lots of exploring too.

The closest town (and shop where you can easily get groceries and other major necessities) is in Reykholt Reykholt is well known for being the home of Snorri Sturluson, who was an Icelandic historian, poet, and politician and wrote for example the famous book “Edda”, which is the story of the Nordic Mythology. In Reykholt there is a beautiful museum dedicated to Snorri and his writings and very interesting if you want to inform yourselves on the Icelandic Sagas.

Deildartunguhver is located 10 min. drive from Búrfell. It is the highest flow, hot spring in Europe with 180 liters/second of 97°C hot water. Some of the water is used for heating in Borgarnes and Akranes after being piped 34-64 km.

Some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland are also reachable within 20 minutes drive from Búrfell. These are Hraunfossar and Barnafossar. Hraunfossar are stemming from an underground river that floats from under a lava field and into the glacial river Hvítá whereas Barnafossar are a magnificent waterfall in the glacial river itself.

Húsafell is located 30 min. drive away. Several interesting hiking paths can be found both for beginners and used hikers. For those whose interest is not hiking there is a also great geothermal swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course located in Húsafell.

The Lava Cave Surtshellir can be reached within 30 minutes drive from Búrfell, but beware the roads are not suitable fo smaller cars. The cave is approximately 1,5 km. long and thereby the longest such lava cave in Iceland.

From Búrfell you can also easily reach Snæfellsnes, but that is a peninsula situated to the west of Borgarfjör?ur. Snæfellsnes is sometimes named “Iceland in Miniature” because of the several sights of the area. The main sight is probably Snæfellsjökull (1446 m.), glacier and volcano, which is regarded as one of the symbols of Iceland and is also known as the setting of the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth by the French author Jules Verne. The area surrounding Snæfellsjökull has been designated one of the four National Parks by the government of Iceland.

On Snæfellsnes you do not only find beautiful nature but also several different fishing villages and small towns with cozy atmospheres and interesting history and happenings. Also near one of them is the tallest structure in Western Europe, the Longwave Radio Mast at Hellissandur.

For the sport fanatics the area is great. Numerous activities are available in the area for example horseback riding and several golf courses are reachable between a few minutes and an hours drive, and for the adrenaline junkies snowmobile tours are available on Langjökull, Iceland's second biggest glacier. In the winter time the area is also great for those who want to experience the magic of the “Aurora Borealis” also known as the Northern Lights. Away from the bright lights of Reykjavik City the uncountable stars and the dancing Northern lights can easily mesmerize you.
