Margrét Jónsdóttir Njarðvík
Tunga is on the farm where my father was born. It is a beautiful house out in the country side in Borgarfjörður, Iceland and 134 km away from the center of Reykjavík. From Tunga there is a view to the following glaciers: Eiríksjökull, Langjökull, Þórisjökull, Geitlandsjökull and Ok. Tunga is in the lava field but has grass and birch trees all around the house. Close to Tunga you con go fishing, swimming (10 km away at Húsafell, 4 star restaurant and bistro), enjoy the aurora borealis during the cold winter nights or enjoy the midnight sun. Tunga sleeps 7 with one single room and 3 bedrooms with double bed (queen size in two of them and sleeping bed in the third one). Only 25 km away is the famous medieval cultural center Reykholt. Tunga is perfect if you want peace, view of glaciers and lava. It is perfect for reading, writing and relaxing. The kitchen is good and wide and the saloon is nice. Good hiking options are in the neighborhood and the host will help you to go around the area with great tips. There are several summerhouses in the neighborhood but the closest restaurant is 8 km away. You would have to rent a car to go to Tunga as the closest bus stops 25 km from Tunga.
