Comfortable bed with high standard pillows and dunes. Nice view outside the bedroom window.View to the west, over the river Sogið. We have enjoyed some very peaceful moments exactly here.

Located 40 minutes south-east of Reykjavik, Thors cottage is a small but very cosy getaway . A 20 minute drive from the town of Selfoss, it is on the edge of a popular summer-house area, surrounded with rivers and mountains. Farmers in the area offer home-grown vegetables, eggs and even horse-back riding. A relatively short drive from the city, yet you feel like in the middle of nowhere. From the cottage, it is very easy to find sweet spots like Gullfoss waterfall & the Geysir hotspring area.

The space

The cottage and everything in it is new, so even though it is small, the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are very nice. We do our very best to make the cottage cosy and romantic with decoration.

Guest access

Full access to the cottage.

Interaction with guests

Most of the time we are not available or close by, but this is Iceland and we are rather flexible. We have helped people organize wedding ceremonies including the priest, church, hair/makeup and photographer before spending their night at the cottage, so don't be afraid to ask for help.

Other things to note

The cottage can be hard to get to during winter, when snow blocks the roads, so sometimes we don't have it available for visitors.

The cottage was absolutely lovely. Great location with a beautiful view. The cottage was so cozy and inviting. Asta had fresh fruit waiting for us when we arrived as well as a stocked refrigerator. Our favorite place we stayed in Iceland!

We had the most amazing time in Iceland also because of this super cozy and comfortable cottage we stayed in for 11 nights. It is very clean and feels so homely with all the lovely decorations. It has everything you need and more - we came home to a plate with cheese and a fridge filled with yoghurts and juices. The owners even invited us over for a lovely dinner. It was a great location for various day trips and we even saw the northern lights dancing in front of the cottage one night. We highly recommend it!

The perfect getaway! My boyfriend and I stayed for a long weekend and everything exceeded our expectations. The cottage was warm and inviting with so many thoughtful aminities. The location was perfect if you are looking to get away from it all. What a lovely host 5 Stars! We highly recommend!

We loved the apartment so much! The arrival was really easy with the detailed explanation we received via email, all worked perfectly. Very lovely and delicious was the marmalade, cheese and biscuits when we arrived, the hosts also putted some skyr and juices into the fridge. Really awesome! The apartment is like on the pictures, super cut and very cosy. The bed is awesome and the view as well. There is coffee and a coffee machine as well as a tea and a sandwich maker. The hosts Birtna and Ennart (not sure how to spell it) were really great. They also invited us for coffee and waffles before we left and told us many things about Iceland! That was fantastic and unique. They also have great tips for restaurants etc. We would definitely recommend this place! Thanks so much again!!!

The cottage is picture perfect and the view from the deck is stunning. An easy drive to Selfoss, plus there is a nice restaurant just 5 min. down the road that is excellent. Our favorite place to stay during our trip.

Cannot recommend Thor's cottage enough! Perfect jumping off point for Golden Circle and the south coast. After a long day of traveling, we were so happy to walk into the cottage. It was like a luxury hotel. Asta has thought of everything - and yes, fresh cheese and frackers were waiting for us as well as a fridge stocked with juice and yogurt. We slept comfortably and even watched a few of her DVDs. The shower was heavenly and we appreciated the robes. Thank you for everything!
