This CHARMING NEW COTTAGE is near NATURE WONDERS in the South of Iceland, the "Golden Circle".

As other old traditional farms in Iceland, Eyvindartunga is a sheep farm. We have some 200 ewes who roam freely with their lambs, during summer.

Since the year 1929, we have been harnessing the river Sandá, producing electrical energy for both the farm itself and the nearby area, including the village Laugarvatn.

The space

The view from the cottage is a scenic landscape towards Hekla, the famous vulcano. Including nearby river, meadows and lakes.

The cottage itself comes with two bedrooms, and can host a total of 6 guests. It is best suited for families or groups.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole cottage. Duvets with bed cloth and towels are included for every person. There are two single beds in each room and the living room is furnished with a convertible sleeper sofa.
For storing and cooking food, the cottage includes a stove, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and refrigerator.

Interaction with guests

It depends on what you want as a traveller if there will be alot of interaction with us, the hosts (Helga and Jón), because the keys are located at the place in a safety box. We could certainly meet up with you for a coffee or a chat as we both live nearby.

Great location, clean and well organized. Climbing the hill that can be seen from the cottage is a bit challenging but quite an experience. Super great view from the top.

The home is amazing. Perfect if you plan to do the golden circle. Located in a very private area and we got fresh snow when we were there and we got to enjoy it with the home having an amazing field around it. Very comfortable place for four of us that stayed there. Would love to go back anytime.

This was by far the best place we stayed during our week in Iceland. It had all the kitchen amenities to cook, a washer dryer , large bathroom and living area. Beds were super comfortable, and the place was immaculate. The views 360 from the cottage were absolutely fantastic and this is very convenient to visit the Golden Circle sites. Definitely recommend this place for your stay in Iceland.

We are family in south Iceland, running this new business together, mostly me Helga and my son Jón. I live on a nearby farm but Jón lives with his family at Eyvindartunga farm where the cottage is situated.

As a young girl I lived and went to school in England in the seaside town Bexhill-On-Sea. Later I studied at the University of Iceland to become a librarian.

Jón studied civil engineering at the University of Iceland, including one year as an exchange student in Karlsruhe, Germany. Currently Jón works both at a local secondary school in the nearby village Laugarvatn, as a science teacher and as an independant consultant.

The new cottage at Eyvindartunga farm is built mostly by Snæbjörn (my husband and father of Jón) who is a civil constructer. We love to travel, farming and enjoying nature.
