SWAP or POINTS ANYTIME BETWEEN 15th OF MAY - 31st OF AUGUST 2017
This rural residence is located on Bifröst University campus, a rural university in the Western part of Iceland, only 1,5 hours drive from Reykjavík. The house is on one floor, built in 1986 and was renovated in 2009 with new wooden floors, new doors and a new kitchen. The interior style is mainly warm, Nordic minimalism - practical, yet comfortable. The house has four bedrooms (thereof two with a double bed) for 6 people, a good-size living room with a door opening to a porch and garden and 1,5 bathrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped with a breakfast table and the living room has a big dining table as well. There is a utility room accessible from kitchen and bedroom hallway with a washing machine. The living room has a wide-screen smart TV with access to many foreign TV-stations, a Netflix account and a PS4 game computer.
Next to the house is Hotel Bifröst, which has a restaurant and a small convenience store. You would also have access to a gym (at the campus, only 2 minutes walk from the house), a sauna and two hot tubs.
The campus is located in a very scenic environment - in the middle of Grábrókarhraun, a 3000-year-old lava field, next to Grábrók, a small volcanic crater which is now a major tourist attraction. Nearby are Hreðavatn lake, Mount Baula, Glanni waterfall and Deildartunguhver, which is the highest flow hot spring in Europe and have recently opened a big spa. Furthermore, Langjökull Glacier and Snæfellsnes National Park (with Snæfelljsökull Glacier, which served as the centre of the Earth in Jules Verne's novel Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864)) are in the vicinity, as well as Hallmundarhraun (including the longest and largest caves in Iceland) and Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland. It takes only 1,5 hours to drive to Reykjavík, The Golden Circle (Þingvellir, Gullfoss & Geysir) are only 2-2,5 hours away and the scenic South Coast (Vík) 3,5 hours away. Therefore, making day trips to major tourist attractions in Iceland is very doable from our location.
