Kirkjufell mountain in only 43 km dtance.
It also known as the Arrowhead mountain in Game of Thrones.
Lava water accommodations like something out of a fairytale. The apartments are a lovely mix of modern and classic cozy and we found them to be immaculately clean and well equipped. The plush bed, well functioning WiFi, TV, kitchen appliances and luxurious shower made for a comfortable stay where we felt right at home and were able to get plenty of rest and relaxation after a day of exploring.
You need not go far to experience the wonders of Iceland as just stepping outside their doors leaves you awestruck. The property nestled next to beautiful moss covered lava fields which lead to the foot of the majestic Light Mountains. A babbling brook traverses the property and Icelandic horses and sheep only adds to the charm.
As if things weren’t pleasant enough, it was here that I saw the most spectacular northern lights dplay I’d encountered in Iceland.
Needless to say, I can’t wait to return and highly recommend staying here to anyone viting Iceland.
