Björg Hörgárdalur farm stay apt. B
These two beautiful apartments are located on our amazing farm. The view you have out of the apartment you're in is the best view you can ask for. Surrounded by horses, fresh air and icelandic nature you can't help but feel relaxed and at home. Next to the house is a hot and cold tubs. And to top it all of, you have access to the best water in the world, which comes straight from our mountain called Staðarhnjúkur. You are looking at apartment B, the one on the right side on the picture.
