About Ragnheidur

I live in Reykjavik with my husband and children and grandkids. My summers as a kid (and since!) were spent in the great outdoors of Iceland, hiking and fly-fishing. Feel free to contact me about anything I can help you with related to your stay.

Ragnheidur purchased this Cottage in 2008

Why Ragnheidur chose Southern Region

My family had a cottage in this part of the country when I was a kid. It's a fantastic area with all the varieties of nature and close to some of my favourite spots in Iceland.

What makes this Cottage unique

The cottage is comfortable and warm. It is heated with water from a local geothermal drilling hole which is owned by the farmer up in the valley. It has lots of room, it's accessible in the wintertime and has great views. You can even see the tip of Hekla volcano towards the south-east. The perfect place to unwind.

                                                      Great location, remote but easily accessible. One hour drive from Reykjavik and two hours from Vik. Very close to Gulfoss and Geysir and only half hour drive to Thingvellir. Wonderful house with lots of added extras, like home from home; warm, comfortable and spacious.

                                                      Christmas at Geysir valley - Fantastic

                                                      Nicholas W.

                                                      We stayed over Christmas and new year had a wonderful time. The cottage is warm and has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. It is great to be able to walk down to the Geysir and withing a very short drive of Gullfoss. It is a great location and you can see so much within a very easy distance. We visited the black sand beach, several waterfalls, Pingvellier and the secret lagoon at Fludir is a must as our kids loved it! The Northern lights were fabulous from this location, we walked out onto the decking in the evening and looked up and were treated to a great display. The owners were really helpful and communicated with us so we felt happy we had help if we needed it especially with advice on driving and weather in Iceland in winter which from a safety aspect you must listen to carefully. Overall I would fully recommend this location and cottage to all of our friends and family. When we left we felt like we were leaving a real home which is a great indication of our enjoyable visit. Thank you so much we had a fantastic holiday and have fallen in love with Iceland.

                                                      This cottage was fantastic! It was clean, looked just like the online photos, had a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and sofa, and the surrounding area was beautiful. Our 4 year old daughter loved the ladder and attic, as well as playing on the deck outside. You can hear two waterfalls in the distance, on the mountainside behind the house. One evening, we came home and saw horses in the pasture nearby. We walked up to the fence, and the friendly Icelandic horses came to greet us. Some of our best photos in Iceland were shot with them (it was sunny that day!). The cottage is near Thingvellir, Geysir and Gulfoss. The owners are very responsive and informative, and helped to make our vacation planning easier. We would definitely recommend a stay at The Geysir Cottage!

                                                      Location

                                                      Southern Region, Iceland

                                                      The Geysir Valley Cottage is perfectly located on the magnificent Golden Circle route. It is nestled in a beautiful secluded nature valley right at the edge of the amazing highland wilderness with its mountains and glaciers. A beautiful river runs through the valley. It's an easy 15 minute walk to the Geysir Hot Spring and Geothermal area, with its restaurants, shops, golf and hotel. A car is recommended for exploring the numerous sites and activities in the area. In winter a 4 wheel drive car is usually necessary. The warm and spacious Geysir Valley Cottage is a 75 minute drive from Reykjavik, right on the Golden Circle route. You will be conveniently close to all the greatest natural attractions of South Iceland. Thingvellir is only a 30 minute drive and the majestic Gullfoss waterfall only 10 minutes away. The Geysir geothermal area is literally around the corner, only a 15 minute walk and the edge of the Highland Wilderness just a 15 minute drive starting just above Gullfoss. Other South Iceland attractions are all within short reach of easy day trips, including glacier trips, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, the Vestmannaeyjar volcanic islands, numerous waterfalls, hiking areas, pony treks, and river rafting. A number of trips and activities, such as the snowmobile trips to the Langjökull glacier can be booked and leave from the nearby Geysir or Gullfoss tourist centres. The valley itself and the surrounding area, with its mountains, woodlands and rivers is also great for hiking. Secluded enough for enjoying the stillness of summer mornings with birdsong or watching the nortern light free from street lights in winter. Yet close the main routes for sights.
