Where is it?


Our house is build in 1934 and it is close to the centrum of Reykjavík although it is a quiet neighborhood, 3 - 5 minutes walk away from the town center and the harbour. Closest swimmingpool (Vesturbæjarlaug) is 10 min to walk. 10-15. min. to the ocean walking path, and 20. min. more will lead you to Reykjavik beach Nautholfsvik with the water temperature of 20°C and the sand is white (very popular during summer). In area 101 we have lots of galleries and good restaurants. Closest golfcourse is 5. min. drive from our house (Seltjarnarnes). For a good mountainclimb there is mountain Esja (20. min. drive), very popular walk in Reykjavik.

We think that a visitor to Iceland should try to see some of the beautiful and quite unique nature we have in this country. A lot of interesting places can be covered by short trips by tourist buses or a car from Reykjavik, horseback riding, boat trips, hiking tours, air tours, arts, entertainments and whale watching. Here are a few web pages about traveling in Iceland:,,,,
Car-exchange is a possibility.
