    Spacious, cute cabin with everything you need! We loved having multiple bedrooms and common space to spread out.

    Great first impression. On arrival it was already warm and felt very cozy. It is outside the city, but just by the ring road, without the need of a detour. The stream of water that runs next to the cottage is a great feature too Full-equipped...

Við-Bót is a beautiful cottage located 9 km from Egilsstadir, East Iceland. It sits on the banks of Rangá river (where guests can fish for free). The cottage has sleeping facilites for four people. Ideal for families or groups.
We are a couple living on a farm close to Egilsstaðir. We know East Iceland very well and we want to be as helpful as possible to our guests. We live on the farm across the road, around 300 meters from the cottage. We are not far away, and you can always contact us here on the site, by phone, or just drop by.
Our cottages are located right outside Egilsstaðir town. Around Egilsstaðir are many beautiful Fjords, such as Borgarfjörður Eystri (there you can see puffins) and Seyðisfjörður. Also there are a lot of hiking trails both in walking distance from the cottage and short car-rides away, we really recommend Hengifoss which is about 35 km away from the cottage.
