About Sigurdur Olafsson

We, Þuríður (Thury) and Sigurdur (Siggi) are a married couple for 49 years, have four girls and 9 grandchildren, we are born 1945 and 1949. We are partly retired. Our land property is 140 hectares = 345 acres. We bought the property 17 years ago and started to build a summer cottage. We have now build a living house and are staying here all year round.

Our land is 50% naturally grown woodland of wild Icelandic willow and mountain birch. In the other half we have planted more than 100.000 tree seedlings, mostly Alaska Pine, Alaska Spruce, Siberian Larch, Icelandic birch and Rowan.

Sigurdur Olafsson purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Sigurdur Olafsson chose Iceland

We are very found of our land, in our eyes it is the most beautiful spot in the world. It is sheltered but have great view over a beautiful Icelandic countryside. If we take a walk few hundred meters up on the hill above us we have a panorama view inland and of the two big glaciers in the south; Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is ideally located if you like to explore south east Iceland. West boundaries of Vatnajökull National Park is only 30 km to the north of us and stretches more than 300 km to the east. Bus stops only few hundred meters away every morning, driving the mountain trail to Eldgjá and Landmannalaugar and comes back same evening. All major attractions in the south east are within 1 1/2 hour drive from us.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The cabin was cute and equipped with everything we needed. It was in an ideal location for exploring the south coast and the valley it is set in is breath taking. I would definitely recommend it.
