The space
Hi, welcome to Þúfa – my lovely home! The word „Þúfa“ means a small Hillock.
My house is located next to the lake Mývatn, situated on my family farmland Vogar. The farm Vogar is on the northeastern Mývatn, a short distance from the village of Reykjahlíð.
It stands in a lava field that is grown moss, wild plants and birch trees. From the first floor of the house there is a great view to the mountains around Lake Mývatn and out to the lake with its many islands formed from explosion craters.
Here you can experience the tranquility of wild nature shaped by volcanic activity.
I live in the ground floor with my girlfriend and my lovely labrador dog Skuggi.
The rooms are under roof but comfortable. Each of them has a roof window and you will be able to inhale the nature directly from your room. They are equipped with two comfortable single beds and blackout curtains. The beds will be made at your arrival. The rooms are decorated in retro style and our handcrafts. My girlfriend loves to handcraft with sheep wool. You are welcome to wear her hand made houseshoes, keeping your feet warm during your stay.

Guest access
Guests rent a two-room apartment. Access to fully equipped kitchen, living room, two bathrooms and balcony.

Other things to note
We would like to ask our guests to pay attention to the neighbors and not to disturb livestock in the neighborhood. Note! The nature around the house is very sensitive. Especially the moss and small plants. Please help us to protect nature and treat it with respect. I have marked the walking paths that visitors may use and you will be given further instructions upon arrival.
