The recreation house is set in a rural area characterized by lava and birch-wood. The distance to Reykjavik is about 90 km (thereof 15 km. gravel road), and there is an hours drive to Stykkisholmur or Budir (tip of the Snaefellsnes peninsula).

The panorama is 360°. Excellent hiking facilities through the lava fields/woodland, or on to the nearby hills and sloes. A very rich arctic flora. Nearby fresh water fishing in Lake Hitarvatn and Langavatn and fly fishing in the renown salmon rivers of West-Iceland.
