Near Mývatn, Aldeyjarfoss, Goðafoss and the Icelandic highlands. AN HOUR AWAY from Húsavík and Akureyri, we are in a rural area so the location can't be moved from Húsavík! It's quiet, quaint and isolated. Part of an active farm, the house has a big yard and a terrace. Ideal for couples, friends, families with children and adventurers. The house has 3 floors, but only the middle floor is for rent. The owner has access to the basement and the attic is out of bounds.

Truly an authentic old farm house, but quite comfortable and charming. Had everything we needed. Listed as Husavik, but actually about 50 kilometers south on a secondary road. Nice drive though!

We had a wonderful stay at Hjördís’s farmhouse. Our host met us at the house when we got in late at night, which was really nice of him as we were driving in on a very foggy night. The house was very spacious and quaint, with deep history and a lot of character. It fit our group …

We absolutely loved Hjordis,s place! Just as described! It is a way out. But it compensates by letting you experience the "real" Icelandic experience. A working sheep farm with a wonderful tour by Hjordis is available at no cost. In fact that evening she took the family and show…

Warm and friendly farmhouse just an hour drive away from Myvtan - a rare find! The farmhouse might be of history but it's grandly furnished, clean and warm at night! We had a short tour around the farm, met the hens and lambs, and learn a lot about the farming history and develop…

We wouldn't really call this a neighbourhood since it's in the isolated countryside. The crime rate is non-existent and there is almost always peace and quiet (word of warning though, there are a numb…

Getting around

There is no public transport. Getting here without a car can be very tough. We don't really recommend cycling here because the roads can be very bumpy for bikes. During the summer months the main road…
