Activities/Attractions: The view is outstanding, the air is fresh, the water is clear, the peace is overwhelming, the possibilities are endless. Due to our excellent location on the "Diamond Ring", we recommend at least four days stay.

One day in Myvatn area. One day in Dettifoss/National park area. One day to drive the Dimond ring round trip and visit all the interesting places on the ring. Last and not least we recommend one day in Husavik to go Whale watching, to visit the museums and restaurants and to relax in our small convenient houses, enjoying the beautiful view and a nice walk around the lake or in the hills. Activities include:

  • Husavik Whale Watching (the very best!)
  • Golfing (1500 meters)
  • Walking (excellent paths)
  • Horse riding
  • Bird watching (directly from the cottages!)
  • Fishing (free! 100 meters to the lake)
  • Hunting
  • Hot tubs
  • Swimming pool (2,5 km)
  • Outside natural warm bath (500 meters)
  • Skiing and snow scooter (only in winter!)
  • Do absolutely nothing, the Icelandic way, in close proximity to nature

"First the view is outstanding. You feel like you're away from everything but the town is very close. The inside of the cottages are like little doll houses. They have everything you need. I made my husband and I a lobster dinner and ate it on the porch. Just heavenly!"

"The setting was absolutely amazing. The cottage itself was nicely equipped and very cozy. The location was perfect for exploring all the attractions in the area."

"If you are going Whale watching in Iceland this is the place to stay. Me and my husband got a nice cottage with everything you need and outstanding view."

"It was a wonderful experience and our hosts had a lovely personal touch. Of course the town is in a special part of the world and we made the most of our time there. If you like the outdoors this is a real treat."

"We stayed here for one night during our trip around the country. By far, this was our favourite spot. The cabin was outfitted comfortably and accommodated two people quite nicely. The hot tub was a very short walk down from our cabin and was the perfect way to end a long day, with gorgeous views of snow-capped mountains out across the fjord. Cleaning up the cabin wasn't a problem. I'd definitely stay here again."

"This is by far the best time we had in Iceland. The view, the cottages, the service, everything was even better then our friends had told us from their stay here. We will visit here again."
