Here you can benefit from the peaceful countryside with all principal services and recreation of the area within your reach. Excellent walking facilities are in the vicinity and many places of interest are closed by. Stunning nature is at the tip of your finger where the river Héraðsvötn floats peacefully by, only a short distance away from the guesthouse.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
