Location

Mosfellsbær, Eilífsdalur, Iceland

The cottage is located in a clean, safe and quiet gated cottage area with around 100 cottages, each having approx. a hectare of land around it.

The cottage area is in a beautiful valley (Eilifsdalur = Eternal Valley) with small family farms, large mountains, waterfalls, rivers, creeks and a number of hiking opportunities.

The last 7 km, after you turn into Middalur, is a gravel road so please drive carefully. We will also be in contact if we see you need a 4WD that is essential when we have snow and slippery roads, we will let you know ahead of time it that is necessary.

The cottage has a private parking area with gravel for 2-3 cars.

The fjord (Hvalfjordur/Whale Fjord) is spectacular and is only a few minutes drive from the area.

Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is only a 30 min drive (city limit); 45 min to the city centre.

Keflavik, the International Airport, 70-80 min drive (89 km).

A small store called Kaffi Kjos - open during weekends in Apr-May and every day during the summer - is in the next valley (East) by Medalsfellsvatn, a 10 min drive.
Medalfellsvatn is a beautiful lake with trout and salmon where the public can fish for a small fee.

The closest gas station and a small convenience store (Kjalarnes), a 15 min drive towards Reykjavik. The closest (heated) swimming pool - not fancy.
The closest large supermarket/town (Mosfellsbaer), a 25 min drive (towards Reykjavik) with e.g. a fantastic heated outdoor swimming pool with three slides, several hot tubs and more.
One of the most famous salmon rivers in Iceland, Laxa i Kjos, a 10 min drive (East).

The tallest waterfall in Iceland, Glymur, a 20 min drive plus approx. 20 min walk (in the bottom of the fjord). A famous hike trail (Leggjabrjotur) starts there (22,51 km / approx. 3 hours).

The national park, Thingvellir (a part of the "Golden Circle"), a 40 min drive.

For additional information we do have restaurant recommendations for Reykjavík City centre and a little brochure can be found at the cottage to use at your convenience.

Systur & Makar, translated to Sisters & Partners, is a small designer company in Iceland. We produce and sell our own designs in the form of clothing, jewellery, accessories and home décor pieces in our own stores in Reykjavík as well as on-line. Being a family business of three we decided to take our creativity further and bought a lovely little summerhouse / bungalow 35-40 minutes outside of Reykjavík city. We renovated it and brought it to our standards to be enjoyed by ourselves as well as to be rented out. This is now our gem that we designed to be most of all: cosy! We are a group of three: sisters and one partner that love to do something fun, interesting and we really enjoy life! At the moment we live for our business and thrive to make it a success! Design and experiencing are the two topics of the hour, have been and will be for the future, as well as spending time with family and friends of course, but that's kind of a given right? We are total foodies, adore home cooked meals as well as gourmet plates of cheese and fruit. Movie fanatics to the core and we love to have a chilled evening with family and friends with a bowl of something to munch on! Generally we are quite an easy going little bunch that loves to meet and get to know new people and that is something we like to share on our blog. We have a little motto: Create your own happiness! Which is something we strive to live by!
