West Iceland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

The house is on the fringe of an area where there are about 10 houses scattered in the lava, a few hundred meters from any other building. Tranquility and silence, disrupted only by bird song and the sound of water from a nearby brook.
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.
