Family vacation to Iceland
Went on a family vacation with our 2 kids and 4 grand kids. The property was excellent and exceeded our expectation. We very much enjoyed the heated floors and the kids had a blast on the trampoline. The location was centralized to most of the major sights which helped minimize drive times. Did not get to see the northern lights, but based on forecast, probability was low anyway.
Was a nice property. plenty of room for 6 of us.
This house was one of the best houses we've stayed at. My group of 10 was very comfortable. It was just like they advertised. We even saw the Northern Lights from the hot tub! Location is really nice for hitting all the major sights. Beds were comfortable and kitchen very easy to use, wonderfully big table to have family time after a full day of hiking. Doing the Zodiac Boat tour on glacier lagoon was a highlight. Don't forget to bring rain jackets if you go in Sept, it was very rainy and windy on some days.
Great for families
Great space for our family of 5 and another family of 4. Great location close to golden circle. No frills but clean, comfortable beds and good cooking kitchen. The trampoline was a favorite for my kids. The hot tub was way too hot the first few nights but we figured it out and it got used the last day. We had a wonderful time, thank you!
Spacious, Clean, and Beautiful
This home was the perfect setting to celebrate my parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary. Location was ideal and beautiful. Hot tub was amazing. Had everything we needed. Only had to contact Bergur once and he was immediately available. Highly recommend.
Perfect for families
This place is a family’s haven !!!! It is perfect. Enough room for everyone , other than the beds for ten people there was a crib too, plenty of towels.
The kitchen was well equipped and the pantry too.
The space was safe for the kids to go out and about and play on the football field and trampoline. Also inside there was plenty of board games and TV entertainment options.
The host was friendly and so welcoming.
We are definitely staying again here !!
The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area, with a small river few meters from the house and a panorama view. The house is close to the golden circle, Gullfoss, Geysir and the national park Tingvellir. 5 minutes from the house is a outdoor public swimming pool ( at Minni Borg) with jacuzzi and water slites and two good 18 holes golf courses. There is also a good nine hole golf course which you can play for free. ON the way to Minni Borg swimming pool you pass Kerid, a volcanic crater with lake in the Bottom. The closest village Selfoss is approx. 15 min. driving with all service needed. Eyjafjallajökull is one hour by car.
Berg house is close to Thingvellir, one of the most beautiful place in Iceland. In 2004 Thingvellir was officially added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Thingvellir is not only a natural shrine of outstanding natural beauty, but also a place with a history. Althingi (Parliament) was founded in Thingvellir in 930 and continued to assemble every summer until 1798. Althingi was to regulate common affairs of the country, pass common laws, and arbitrate the disputes between the local areas and decide judicially regarding killings and lawlessness. Prior to the formation of this Althingi each area of the country had its own local thing (governing general assembly) headed by the local godi, the chieftain.
For 868 years every summer, chieftains, farmers who owned land and ordinary men and women from all parts of Iceland left their homes and villages and headed towards Thingvellir for the annual fortnight long meeting which would start on the first Thursday in the eleventh week of each summer. For people coming from the east part of Iceland, the trip on horseback could take up to 17 days.
At Logrétta (Law Council) the Godar, the all powerful local chieftains and bishops gathered to debate and pass new laws and amend old ones. Then the Law-Speaker (lögsögumaður), the president of Lögrétta would stand on a nearby tall cliff, the Law Rock (Lögberg) in Almannagjá and recite the laws from memory. The high lava flank of the fissure behind him gave good accoustics which gave resonace to his voice. His words were recited by other speakers standing on farther cliffs to reach the entire audience.
