About Heidrun

About Robert and Heidrun

I work as a teacher and I have a BA degree in Icelandic literature. My husband Robert works as a Pilot in Europe. We´ve got two little boys.

We built our beautiful house during the last five years and lived in it the past two years so it includes everything we need.

Heidrun purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Heidrun chose West Iceland

We wanted to build a nice holiday home where we could relax and recharge the batteries.. and that´s precisely what we succeeded. Also the short distance to Borgarnes (swimming pool, gym and everything else) and to the Capital, Reykjavík.

What makes this cottage unique

Arcitecture, High standard and Peacefulness, you walk around the house on the large patio and enjoy the amazing mountain view in the peaceful surroundings, with no sound except for the sound from the small birds and a distance sound from the Langá river...

great and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5
After two weeks in the highlands with a 4x4 camper this house was the pure luxury. You will find there everything you need for a pleasant stay.
We are a family with 3 children and the house was perfect for us. It was spacious and clean.
The owners, Heidi and Rob, were very helpful all the time.
Thanks for a great residence.

Unique location to start your Icelandic discovery

  • 5 of 5
Having traveled for several years [with and without child(ren)] we can only endorse all the positive comments made already here.

During our 2nd stay in Iceland, we were happy to call Helluskogur our "Icelandic home" for 2 weeks. Not only its unique location (with a waterfall and the impressive Langá so near), but also the home decor was simply overwhelming.

The house has an open character and is built smart so that landscape, weather and light can be enjoyed day and night. Inside, all equipment is of very high quality and nicely organized, including some great toys for the kids, art and literature.

From here, even with young children who don't allow to make long distance trips, you can discover West-Iceland's nicest natural beauties and at the same time remain connected with the city of Reykjavik. A beautiful map of Iceland on one of the inner-walls inside allows to start dreaming about great trips one can make in Iceland. But this house is definitely one of the best places to start an IS-discovery.

Rob and Heidi, you have been amazing hosts for us. Thanks so much for your hospitality and good luck with all your activities.

Kindest regards from
Anna-Julia, Myrthe, Kristin & Dirk (Brussels - BE)

Time of our lives!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Heidi and Rob, we had a fantastic time staying in Helluskogur! The house is absolutely beautiful, and its location is perfect for visiting all of West-Iceland. We are in love with the built-in coffee machine, and we can't wait to come back and try out that hot tub you're going to install!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Great and easy booking process, great communications from the owners. This is in a fabulous area for exploring and with a great bakery in nearby Borganes. The house was an amazing eco house with great views and just one of those places you feel really relaxed in. The house felt bigger than the images suggested on the website and our little one had a great time running round. I cannot in anyway fault our stay here and would definitely stay again without hesitation.

Excellente adresse

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine en famille dans la maison d'Heidrun et Robert, la maison est très agréable, lumineuse sans vis à vis mais non isolée dans un environnement très calme et reposant. Borgarnes est une bonne base pour découvrir l'ouest de l'islande.
L'adresse est à recommander sans hésiter.

Very recommendable house

  • 5 of 5
The house is fantastic - modern and openly. Through the big windows you have a very good view about the closer surrounding. The photos are really realistic.
Our expectations were more than fulfilled.
Heidrun and Robert are very good hosts. Everything was clean and well prepared for us. We felt in good hands - almost like „at home“
We stayed there two weeks. A good starting point for day tours in all directions of Iceland.
In spite of rain we visited Pingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss, Snaefellsjökull, Reykjavik …and saw a lot of fascinated landscapes.
In Borganes you find some supermarkets, filling stations for all things you need for your stay.
with kind regards from Berlin / Germany

Only 45 min driving on to the Golden Circle to view the great Gullfoss and the hot spring Geysir. Also on the Golden Circle you will find the historical place Thingvellir (Þingvellir):

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is also home to Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

Parliament or Alþingi was established at Þingvellir in 930 and remained there until 1798. Þingvellir National Park was founded in 1930 to protect the remains of the parliament site and was later expanded to protect natural phenomena in the surrounding area. Þingvellir National Park was the first national park in Iceland and was decreed 'a protected national shrine for all Icelanders, the perpetual property of the Icelandic nation under the preservation of parliament, never to be sold or mortgaged.'

The house is located sidelong the spectacular salmon river Langá, one of the greatest salmon rivers in Europe.

Fantastic walking paths from the house, where you can enjoy the peaceful nature.

The house is a one hour drive north from the Reykjavík Capital and 10 minutes from Borgarnes. In Borgarnes you can go to one of the nicest swimming pools in Iceland, play golf at Hamarsvöllur, visit the great Settlement center where you can learn about the Icelandic culture and saga, go to the pub and shop at the cheap Bonus grocery store.

In the north direction, about 50 minutes driving, you will find the old fishermen´s town Stykkishólmur, where you can go sailing, Whale Watching and enjoy bird watching paradise.

Close to Stykkishòlmur, you'll find the great Snæfellsnes National Park. It is was voted one of **Iceland Top Five** to visit. There you can enjoy Snæfellsjökull, and it's magical and remarkable nature.

You can say about the location of the house that it is midway between the two great National Parks, Snæfellsnes and Thingvellir National Park and only one our from our Capital, Reykjavik.
