I love being close to nature, camping, fly fishing, watching wildlife being around animals and just listening to the sounds of birds. Even though I was brought up in the city I always long for enjoying our land and it´s energy. It brings me good emotions and I find it relaxing.

I have a boyfriend, Gisli and 2 stepdaughters 6 and 9 years old. We live in the city but we use every spear time to go to the summerhouse in Skorradalur.

I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2002, worked in the cancer unit for several years, have had a company called Hrif since 2005. At Hrif our main goal is to bring health promotion into companies. We assist companies to build up their future health policy, we do lectures and educational courses built in a positive and joyful way, to help the staff to stay focused how important it is to live our life in a healthy and nourishing way. Everything matters, our mind and body and surroundings and the people we meet, work and/or live with.

These 3 cottages are placed in this amazing valley, Skorradalur. Only 1 hour drive from Reykjavik (90 km). Skorradalur is known for calm weather and exceptional nature and has become one of the most popular cottage areas in Iceland for Icelanders. There you can see wildlife just before your eyes, beautiful fields, the lake of Skorradalur, forests and mountains. The cottages are small and simple but very nice. The location is great if you want to explore west of Iceland as day tour suits well for historical places like Reykholt, Husafell were the surroundings are f.ex. glaciers, waterfalls and many more. There is a little over one hour drive to the National park Þingvellir. Day trip to Snaefellsnes, Breidafjordur and the southern part of the Westfjords shows the best Iceland has to offer.

What makes the stay close to perfect staying at our cottages is the location to travel from and the surroundings in Skorradalur. One can feel and enjoy the nature and surroundings with beautiful view and just by 'being' there !

Permit for fishing in the lake for 1 person is included for those who like that sport. Free of charge for children.

Very well equipped cottage in nice surroundings.
Everything was neat and clean and you had everything you needed for your stay.

A car is essential to be able to discover Iceland, as the cottage is located quite far from the next city. It was a bit hard to find in the beginning at night, but once we got there everything was fine.

We would recommend the cottage, especially in winter when there are just a few tourists!
Owner's Response: Dear Markus.
Thank you for your stay with us.
We are just waiting for our road sign to be replaced again by the road. ;)

A small but very clean and neat cottage with an amazing view over the lake in front of the mountains. The cottage has everything as described, an electric kettle would certainly be appreciated! ;-) We'll definitely take this cabin into consideration if we come back to Iceland some day.
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you had a nice journey back home.
Kind regards

Nous avons passé une semaine dans ce chalet et nous en avons été très satisfaits.
Le chalet est très bien situé, au calme dans un paysage grandiose pas loin de Borgarnes pour les courses et l'essence.Les routes pour l'atteindre sont toutes goudronnées . Malgré sa petite surface le chalet est très fonctionnel et chaque chose trouve sa place.
Après les longues randonnées de la journée, nous avions plaisir à retrouver chaque soir ce petit nid douillet.
Merci aux propriétaires Agusta et Gisli qui habitent à 100 mètres.
Owner's Response: Dear Jocelyne and Dominiqe.

Nice to hear that you really enjoyed your stay with us in Skorradalur. Also nice to get to meet you even though it was only for a short while.

We did translate (google translate) your review to English, we hope that´s fine with you.

We hope to see you again.

With kind regards,
Ágústa and Gísli

Review submitted: 31 July 2013 Date of stay: July 2013
We spent a week in this cottage and we were very pleased. The cottage is well situated in a quiet magnificent landscape not far from Borgarnes for shopping and petrol. Roads to reach are all paved. Despite its small area of the chalet is very functional and everything has its place. After the long day of hiking, we enjoyed each evening this little nest. Thank you Agusta and Gisli owners who live within 100 meters.
