About the property

•4 Bedrooms •Beautiful dining area, seats 12 •Sleeps 10 Comfortable

Árhvammur, is situated near the renowned swimming pool , Laugaskarð in Hveragerði, a small geothermal town, only 45km away from Reykjavík.

The house is 200 m2 (2153 sqft) with an open family/ kitchen area. It features 4 spacious rooms (sleeps 10 easily) and 3 bathrooms.

The spacious deck is wonderful for outdoor enjoyment, as well as the property itself, which is 11400 m2 (123,000 sqft) or (2.82 acres).

Located 45 km from Reykjavik, Hveragerði may be seen from the vantage point of the Kambar mountain slope, as it spreads out across a 5,000 year-old lava field. Throughout the year, pillars of steam may be seen rising up out of the town – and in summer the town is truly a green community, abounding in trees. A green revolution is taking place as areas of woodland in and around Hveragerði expand, with the locals working together in order to further develop their blossoming town.

Beautiful home in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home in Hveragerdi (about one hour east of Reykjavik) was exactly what our family needed for our Icelandic vacation! It was beautiful inside and out with plenty of sleeping, living and storage space inside for our family of five and lovely river views outside. Also, the town was quaint with several restaurants, a grocery store, gas station, and thermal-heated community pool right down the road from this home.

The rental's location made it very convenient to get to all the Golden Circle sites as well as the many activities we scheduled - river rafting, horseback riding, glacial lagoon boat ride, ATV tour, Blue Lagoon, ice cave tunnel tour, etc.

Kristin made everything very easy for us in setting up the rental and was available by phone with any questions we had while there.

I heartily recommend this wonderful home to any family or group that would like to explore the beauty of Iceland!

Great Place for vacation

  • 5 of 5

The House offers great spacious and freedom for everybody. We have been 2 families of 4 (kids 16, 15, 14, 10) and enjoyed the stay for almost 3 weeks. In the house everything is available. Supermarkets, bakery, restaurant and sport facilities are within 1 mile. Great place for starting Trips to all sights in Iceland. Tip: less when 10 km you´ll find a 1,2 km vulcano Cave (headlights required), hot River, vulcano crater, hot spots .... No Need to buy beer at the Airport - vinbudin with all sorts of Drinks at the same price level is at the Bonus supermarket in the city. A better supermarket (Kronus) is in selfoss only 10 minutes by car. Thank´s to Krisitin - all tips are very good. We had a great time in a great country in a excellent house, Frank Berlin August 2016

Iceland Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 9 amazing days in Iceland. The house was in a great location for exploring this beautiful country. The house was just wonderful. It was warm, comfortable, spacious, and fully stocked. Kristin, the owner, was very helpful. There was a Bonus grocery store less than 5 minutes away. The town of Hveragerdi is so cute. It is nestled in a geothermal area, so there is a pool you can swim in, and a great hike up to a hot spring you can soak in. There are even boardwalks and changing areas up at the hot spring. Varma is a great place to have dinner. We spent a fun night at the Blue Lagoon which is about 90 minutes away. We did the Golden Circle Tour. Gullfoss is a unique and powerful waterfall. We drove to Vik which is about 2 hours away. There are waterfalls everywhere along the way. The ones not to be missed are Seljalandsfoss, which you can walk behind, Gljufurarbui which is a few hundred yards away, and the grand Skogafoss. Vik has black sand beaches, and nearby there are the basalt columns, and puffins. We took the ferry another day to Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands.) There is an incredible museum on Heimaey that tells the story of the volcanic eruption in 1973. We also hiked the rim of the volcanic crater. You can still feel the heat. We drove 4 hours to Glacier Lagoon. Unfortunately, it was a very cloudy rainy day, but despite that, the Lagoon is surreal. The next day we did a glacier hike at Skaftafell. This was a definite highlight of our trip. The black and white of the glacier like being in another world. For a different adventure, take a flight up to Grimsey Island. You will be rewarded with a certificate stating you crossed the Arctic Circle! I don't know of another country where you can see waterfalls, green mountains, glaciers, volcanos, beaches and lava fields all in one day. The unspoiled natural beauty if Iceland is something that must be preserved, respected, and cherished. There is so much more we would love to see, and we hope to return again in the future. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

Mejor imposible

  • 5 of 5

Poder pasar unos días en esta maravillosa casa ha estado una experiencia que recordaremos toda la vida. Visitar Islandia es muy atractivo, pero llegar a este "palacio" lo hace aún mas espectacular.

Comodidad, espacio, limpieza, electrodomésticos, etc... todo excelente.

Perfect home for exploring South Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful home! It was clean, well-equipped, and very comfortable. The location was perfect - close to town, but private with beautiful surroundings. We loved all the trails that were easily accessible from the house. We were a family of six - five adult siblings traveling with our eighty-eight year old mom, and found that we had plenty of room for all of us. Mom enjoyed resting at home, reading books and watching the river while we hiked to Reykjadalur and soaked in the bathing river. We highly recommend this beautiful home and the area in which it resides.
