Our vacation cabin is secluded, yet not far from the small town of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. A small and cozy cabin, with one bedroom with a double bed and a sleeping loft with four mattresses. The cabin is small and the sleeping loft is not with a full height so adults might find it cramped. Perfect base for visiting the south, Skaftafell and the glacier lagoon.

The space
Small and cozy cabin. Beautiful view.

Living room, WC, shower, one bedroom with a double bed and a sleeping loft for two (mattresses on the floor). Everything you need is in the cabin kitchenware, BBQ grill, sleeping blankets and pillows.

In our small kitchen is a stove-top for two pots, a small fridge, a microwave and a small table-top grill-oven. You should be able to cook all your meals there.

Around the dining table are 6 chairs and there is also a table outside so if the weather is nice you can eat your meals there.

There is no TV in the cabin, but it isn't really needed as there is good 4G phone signal at the cabin, and it is also good to just relax and read a good book.

There is one bedroom with a double bed (140*200cm) and in the sleeping loft are 4 mattresses. Clean linen is provided for our guests. The cabin is small and the sleeping loft is not with a full height so adults might find it cramped.

The shower is in a separate room from the toilet and sink. There are bathroom towels and shower towels.

The cabin is small and cozy, only 45 m2 (420 ft2) and is close to the lake Hæðargarðsvatn (only 50 m). In the lake we have brown trout up to 5 pounds and arctic char up to 6 pounds and we have a few different species of ducks on the lake as well.

The cabin is our family vacation cabin, summer and winter. We are a family of four and try to go there as often as we can, all the year round.

We live in Hveragerði and our cabin is 260 km from Reykjavik, next to the village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur (short and easy name!). The cabin is just a few hundred meters from the main road, easily accessible all year. From the cabin there are another 69 km to Skaftafell and from Skaftafell another 57 to the magical Jokulsarlon (the glacial lagoon). On the way from Reykjavik there are numerous sightseeing stops including beautiful waterfalls and Dyrholaey. So, allow for 4-5 hours for the drive from Reykjavik to the cabin. The road from Reykjavik to our cabin, and all the way to Skaftafell is a very easy drive, a bit narrow but with asphalt and a 90 km pr hour maximum speed limit.

During winter we recommend using 4x4 cars as you never know when it comes to the Icelandic weather. It is better to be safe than sorry!
