The space

Tunga is a beautiful house out in the country side in Borgarfjörður, Iceland. It is 134 km away from the center of Reykjavík. From Tunga there is a view to the following glaciers: Eiríksjökull, Langjökull, Þórisjökull, Geitlandsjökull and OK. Tunga is in the lava field but has grass and birch trees all around the house. Close to Tunga you con go fishing, swimming (10 km away at Húsafell), enjoy the aurora borealis during the cold winter nights or enjoy the midnight sun. Tunga sleeps 7 with one single room and 3 bedrooms with double bed (queen size in two of them and sleeping bed in the third one). Only 25 km away is the famous medieval cultural center Reykholt.

Tunga is perfect if you want peace, view of glaciers and lava. It is perfect for reading, writing and relaxing. The kitchen is good and wide and the saloon is nice. Good hiking options are in the neighborhood and the host will help you to go around the area with great tips. There are several summerhouses in the neighborhood but the closest restaurant is 8 km away. You would have to rent a car to go to Tunga as the closest bus stops 25 km from Tunga.

Dear Tim. The pleasure was mine and be sure that I contact you if I travel in the Pacific Northwest. I am always a bit homesick to the US:) Take care and should you need anything from Iceland, just let me know. If you would like to come again and with a group, Mundo would be happy to help. All the best Margrét
