We invite you to stay in our warm , inviting 2 bedroom farm house, situated on a horse farm in south Iceland. Our sweet house offers a great position just 81km from the capital Reykjavik; whilst offering easy access to the golden circle and many other tourist spots!
Hello, We live here at Arbaer with our family of mum, dad and four young children. Arabaer is a busy working farm where we train, breed and sell Icelandic horses. We also farm vegatables including turnips and carrots, this keeps us all pretty busy! I Louise, am originally from Scotland and have travelled, lived and worked abroad in several places including new zealand and Holland before settling in iceland nearly 12 years ago. My husband Saevar is Icleandic and grew up around here, we run the business together and enjoy our busy lifestyle with the farm, children and various pets ;) We speak English and Icelandic here at the farm
Arabaer is ideally situated to experience an authentic, rural working Icelandic horse farm whilst still maintaining relative ease of access to the amenitites of the nearest big toen Srelfoss (The largest town in south Iceland) only 26km away. To the back of the property we have access through our land to the River þjórsá, and we are spoiled year round by breath-taking sunrises and sunsets. Veiws from outside the house take in some beautiful vistas with the mountain Ingólfsfjall, and volcano Hekla, in the distance. On a clear day Eyjafjallajokull (The ash cloud causing Volcano) can be sighted from the back garden. You may also witness the majestic northern lights whilst staying at the house. Many activites can be enjoyd onsite or in the surroundings including, horse-riding, fishing and hiking.
