Company information

We are a family living at the farm. Anna and Sigurdur (Siggi), husband and wife. Siggi is a mechanicer and Anna is a lawyer (got bored of that profession and is now glad to serve her guests). We have two grown up children, Einar 22 years old, meat processor and Ingveldur Anna is 20 years old, wannabe lawyer, in university in Reykjavik. Siggi´s anchestors have been living here past at least 200 years. We run a small „gentlemans farm“, we have 10 sheep/ewes. We had hens but this winter a mink got in to the henhouse and killed them. We run our own electricity station and produce electricity from the creek behind the house, to use for our house. In the summer we have a big cabbage garden and catch trout in the lagoon below/south of the farm. In the summer we can always give you salad from the garden. And if you/we are lucky fisherman, you can get trout.

Neighbourhood information

We are located in the center on the south coast. It is a perfect place to stay several days and travel both to east and west. Activities in the neighborhood are many: We are located exactly between the two famous waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss about 10 km each way. Then the hot spring swimming pool Seljavallalaug is about 6 km to the east. We live beneath the famous glacier Eyjafjallajökull and the Eyjafjallajökul´s guest center is only 3 km away. The folkmuseum Skógasafn, the most popular museum in Iceland, is 10 km away. You just have to step out of the apartment to meet the elves because they live in the rocks and the big stones nearby the house. Good restaurants are in the neighborhood both fine dining, lunch, grill, bistro and cafe. In the wintertime you can often lay down in the snow and watch the northern lights/aurora borealis.
