Rent this 2-bedroom cabin with space for four and enjoy a tranquil stay during your visit to South Iceland.
The location of the cabin sits on a farm in Hvolsvollur, just one and a half hours from Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik. There are fewer lights than in other urban areas and this makes the view of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) during winter more clear. The cabin has a porch from where you can also gaze at the stars as you relax.
