Centrally located - near the golden circle: The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route in South Iceland, covering about 300 km looping from Reykjavík into central Iceland and back.
The golden circle is in short driving distance from Nonnahús.
The three primary stops on the route are the national park Þingvellir, the waterfall Gullfoss (meaning 'golden falls'), and the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.
Þjórsárdalur Valley: Nonnahús is located near Þjórsárdalur Valley, a valley that includes many interesting places to visit. Þjórsárdalur lies between mount Búrfell alongside the river Þjórsá to the east and mount Skriðufell to the west. The valley has been formed and given unique look by repeated eruptions of the nearby volcano Hekla as well as other volcanoes in the vicinity. Don’t be afraid – Nonnahús is not located on a bed of lava beside any volcano.
Gjáin is a very beautiful location in Þjórsárdalur valley. The river Rauðá runs through this valley with many small waterfalls, ponds and volcanic structures. It’s in about 20 min walking distance from the historical farm Stöng, and can be driven very close to in an off-road vehicle.
The volcano Hekla can be seen from the site.
Some find this place so beautiful they (secretly) have strewn their ashes in the river to be forever be united with monumental nature in this 'paradise on earth'.
Landmannalaugar: The Landmannalaugar area is a popular tourist destination and hiking hub in Iceland's highlands. The area displays a number of unusual geological elements, like the multicoloured rhyolite mountains and expansive lava fields. The many mountains in the surrounding area display a wide spectrum of colours including pink, brown, green, yellow, blue, purple, black, and white. Two of the most popular mountains among hikers are Bláhnúkur (meaning 'blue peak') and Brennisteinsalda (meaning 'sulphur wave').
Landmannaluagar is a popular tourist destination. Tourists visit the area from June through late September, after which time the road is closed.
Many hot and cold springs create a bathing warm brook, where people bath throughout the entire year. The banks of the brook are boggy and lushly vegetated and people are kindly asked to use the wooden path across the bog to the brook. It is forbidden to use soap.
Nonnahús is great place to visit Landmannalaugar from.
Free high-speed internet.

Sjöfn purchased this house in 5
All was very good for all our family. We stay here 15 days. We are 7. The situation of the house for visiting all Sud Iceland is well. We were under the charme!!!
We had a great time & loved the house & the hot tub! It was always nice to get back after a day's sightseeing to the house & relax in the evening. It was really well appointed & nicely furnished.
There were four of us staying & the only thing which would have improved our stay further would have been to have had an extra bathroom.
Beautiful house, stunning views and very clean. We were fortunate enough to see the Aurora Borealis after a snow storm while in the hot tub and felt very blessed.
I would recommend this house for anyone looking for quality accommodation in a secluded spot close enough to drive to many of the natural attractions Iceland has to offer.
Thank you for providing us with our very special home from home.
