About the neighbourhood
The house is located along the spectacular Salmon River, Langá, one of the greatest Salmon rivers in Europe. There are many beautiful hiking trails near the house where you can enjoy the peaceful nature and walk by the river. There are several waterfalls in the river. The house is in about 10 minutes drive from Borgarnes. In Borgarnes you can visit the Museums Landnámssetur Íslands, where you can learn about the Icelandic Saga, and Edduveröld, located in the old merchant houses down by the old pear. The museum portraits an artists view of Asgard and other scenes from the Norse mythology. Both museums have very nice restaurants. In Borgarnes you can also enjoy one of the nicest swimming pools in Iceland, play golf at Hamarsvöllur and shop all necessities. The beautiful Borgarfjörður area is close by Helluskógur. In Borgarfjörður you can find many interesting places to visit. The largest thermal spring in Iceland, Deildartunguhver, is located near a small town called Kleppjárnsreykir and is about 40 minutes drive from Borgarnes. Close by Deildartunguhver is the historical place Reykholt. There you can find Snorrastofa which we recommend visiting if you are interesting in Icelandic Saga. If you drive on from Reykholt towards Húsafell you will see the beautiful waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss, which are absolutely worth a visit. From Húsafell you can go on a tour into the glacier Langjökull, one of Europe’s largest glacier. Amazing! We are here to help you plan your vacation and get the most out of your stay in Iceland. Later on we will send you an information package with the House manual and detailed directions, Restaurants and cafes in the area and Attractions in the area. You are welcome to contact us at any time if you have any questions.
Getting around
We do recommend a rental car for getting around in Iceland. We will then send you a detailed information email that includes rental cars companies.
How to get there
We will send you detailed directions on how to get to the house. On the way you can make a stop in the town Borgarnes where you can find all necessities. In Borgarnes there are also nice restaurants and museums to visit, so if you are early it is a good idea to visit the Settlement Center for example.
