About Bjarni Thor Jonsson
I am a 70 years old lawyer working for the building department of the capital city Reykjavik in Iceland. I was born in Reykjavik and live there.
Bjarni Thor Jonsson purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Bjarni Thor Jonsson chose Southern Region
I have many relatives and friends in this area and was working on a farm as a young boy. I have always loved this part of the country with all its attractions and beautiful landscape.
What makes this Cottage unique
When this ground came for sale 10 years ago I did not hesitate to buy it. I could choose from several situations but this one had it all. On a hillside with mainly grass, moss and blueberries late August and September and a great view from the hillside over to the mountains.

The cabin and location were perfect!!
We loved the cabin. We had the chance to see the Northern lights. They were amazing. There was nothing to block our view. We used the hot tub 2 out of 3 nights. The location was perfected for the excursion we did. Would stay here the whole week next time.
Everything about this property has been great. Thoroughly clean, modern, comfortable, and beautiful.
I couldn’t have been more impressed with either the property or the property owner. We were met at the location the day we arrived by the owner and shown all of the various features of Thorsholt (of which there are many). Thorsholt offers a stunning view of mountains across a valley from its perch high on a hill. Spacious and modern, the cabin kept us warm and comfortable as we enjoyed the environment Iceland had to offer. This trip will be fondly remembered by our family.
Perfect Family Vacation
Everything about the cabin met or exceeded our expectations. My family of 5 spent Christmas at the cabin and it was such a treat for the kids to have a small but beautiful Christmas tree set up for them by the extremely gracious host Bjarni! He was so thoughtful and helpful.
The beds were comfortable and the sauna/hot tub was such a treat for all of us!Location was perfect as well for the day trips we wanted to do
GREAT PLACE , GREAT LOCATION , GREAT OWNER !!!!!
Had everything we could ever want and more . Sat in hot tub and watched northern lights right in front of us . Next time in Iceland , I Would definitely stay here again . This cabin was secluded , relaxing , and had everything a family of 5 would need . The owner was so gracious and prompt with any questions I had . I can't say enough good things about my experience . 5 STARS
This is a beautiful lodge in an amazing location. 7 of us stayed for 3 nights. I could thoroughly recommend it.The host was very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to book this again
Great stay in a great house !
We had a fabulous three night stay in this charming place. It was spotless and well equipped. The view from the hot tub can’t be beat.
