Come and enjoy the surroundings which include a beautiful valley with a creek trickling through it, smallest forrest on earth, beautiful old church and hiking paths or keep warm and cosy inside while you relax.

Where you’ll be

Hvammstangi, Northwest, Iceland

The cottage is located about 7km from the Icelandic ring-road (#1), above (view to the mountains) Hvammstangi village. Hvammstangi village is a sweet little town with fierce people in it. A stroll around town is a pleasant surprise.

As for the cottage's closest surroundings, there is a very small forrest, a beautiful valley and an old church and cemetery which are well worth taking a walk for. While it is dark in Iceland you have excellent chances to experience the northern lights. Since the cottages are in a secluded spot, there aren't many street lamps which gives you the best view to the stars.
