Our new mobile home is located in a unique spot, situated right under the mountains, in front of a waterfall, with a glacier on one side and with a clear ocean view! A 10 minute drive from The Glacier lagoon (Jökulsárlón), on clear days, you can see the lagoon from the patio. This rural county has been one of the most isolated areas in Iceland, but now offers so many activities! The location is perfect for exploring the South of Iceland as well as if you´re driving the ring road.

The space
The home is fully equipped and should have everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The home has 3 bedrooms but please keep in mind that being a mobile home they're smaller than typical bedrooms. The biggest of the three rooms sleeps two persons, the second sleeps one or two persons and the smallest bedroom is most suitable for a child or teenager.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to make a home cooked meal. The bathroom has a shower with hot water (although you might need to wait for it between showers if you´re many).

The TV has no channels but you can bring your own cords and connect it to your computers.

The living room is quite large and great for relaxing, playing cards or enjoying a glass of wine with friends or family.

Guest access
The whole house and patio is yours during your stay!

Other things to note
The house is a new mobile home and the gps location showing on AIRBNB is not completely accurate as the site cannot find the remote area. It´s close enough though. For further instructions please see the directions category.

The next grocery store is 70km away so make sure bring supplies beforehand. Otherwise there's Gerdi guesthouse, 2.5km away that serves breakfast and dinner at an additional fee.

The closest town is Höfn, where'll you find grocery stores good restaurants and a public swimming pool. Oh and yeah, the town is famous for its Icelandic lobster.

Location

Reynivellir, Austur-Skaftafellssýsla, Iceland

With the biggest glacier in Europe practically in your garden, our mobile home is in a unique location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Hike up to the waterfall behind the house and enjoy a beautiful sunset with a panoramic view of the ocean. Or relax on the patio while watching the northern lights!

The area offers so many enjoyable experiences from the glacier lagoon, geothermal hot tubs, hiking, the best brewery/restaurant in the South of Iceland and Þórbergssetur, a museum and cultural center, devoted to Þórbergur's work, only 2 km east of Reynivellir. We highly recommend touring the museum.

You literally can't get bored in the area and if you want to go on tours there are ice-caving tours available, kayaking on a glacier lagoon and even a petting zoo where the main star is a world famous goat, well known for its performance in Hollywood movies!
