Husafell calls itself "a pearl between lavafields and glaciers," and it's so true. The Husafell camp/vacation home site is situated in a black birch "forest" (the trees aren't very tall), but it doesn' t take long to get from this property up to a glacier or down into a lava cave. The little store in Husafell has all the basics, and there are several sort-of-marked trails around the property that lead to wonderful surprises. The house itself is solid, clean, and comfortable. Beware that the DVD player will not accept U.S. DVDs (they do have DVDs for kids there that you can use), and we were majorly disappointed when the hot tub jets conked out on us, so make sure that is fixed if you rent. We made great day trips into the surrounding area, including out to the Snaefellsness Peninsula. Don't miss walking down to the beach from the black church in budir. Although it takes a while to get anywhere from Husafell once you've seen the nearby stuff, the countryside is so beautiful, that driving really isn't a hardship. Bring a detailed map, as directions to points of interest are not well marked. You can also ask anyone for directions, as Icelanders are super friendly and all speak English. I highly recommend renting this property.
