Cabin in Hafnarfjörður
The Secret Cabin with hot tube in Nature Reserve
The location is exceptional, located hillside in a beautiful nature reserve, still very close to the downtown Reykjavik. Sit out of an evening and watch for the Northern Lights, then rest on the stove-side rocking chair amid wood paneling that extends to the vaulted ceilings, and look out forest-wards from the deck. The International airport is 40-50 minutes drive. Ideal located for exploring the South West. Downtown Reykjavik is only 20 minutes drive
