What an amazing property in the middle of nowhere! We managed to come at a wonderful time - we got to see the Northern Lights three nights in a row! This was a truly memorable trip for us and our children who will remember this for the rest of their lives.

Our final stay of a two week trip was here in 3 nights -- what a wonderful and lovely cabin. Situated ocean front, literally, it was remote and very private. Nearest home was easily 3/4 mile. The cabin did require some navigation and special attention to the road signs in the dar…

To sum up our stay is simple: It was a privilege to spend our time at Þórunn's cottage. The location and setting are magical. It feels wonderfully isolated, yet in truth it is not far from Reykjavik. We visited in late November. Our flight landed very early in the morning. …
