    Skutustadahreppur, Lake Myvatn, Iceland

    Perfect spot for midnight sun and Northern lights. Within 15 minutes drive to magic volcanic landscape, restaurants and Mývatn Nature Baths. I rent two small double rooms. You share my home with me, my girlfriend, my dog and 2 other guests. I am native, born and raised on the farm Vogar. Once landscaper and local guide I am happy to share with you my knowledge about the area and the life around the lake. If you like a homely stay with locals and get knowledge about the area, welcome to book.
    My house is located in a quiet street in the village of Reykjahlíð, north east of Lake Mývatn. The HOUSE itself is an old, cosy and lovable small wooden house with soul. The floor cracks a bit when you walk, kind of talking to you, telling stories of the past. And the walls are thin, keeping no secrets. First you enter a small and cosy HALL, decorated in TRADITIONAL ICELANDIC STYLE, with new and old furniture and photos of my family on the walls. Feel welcome to have a seat at my small old family table, heat water for tea or coffee and enjoy your meal. The BEDROOMS are small but comfortable. They are equipped with comfortable single beds, reading lamps, table, mirror, chair and darkening curtains -blinder-. The beds will be made at your arrival and your towels is on your bed. The rooms are decorated with antique things from my parents farm usable as hangers. My girlfriend loves to handcraft with sheep wool. You are welcome to wear her houseshoes, keeping your feet warm. The BATHROOM is shared with us and two other guests. It is equipped with a shower, toilet, sink, a cupboard and a hairdryer. We live and sleep in the living room with a small KITCHEN. You are welcome to use our kitchen for breakfast and SIMPLE COOKING from 8am to 8pm. We want you to feel like home and If you like, take a moment to talk to us, we can exchange knowledge about both of our cultures, which I think will enrich the lives and experience of us both.
    WHAT TO SEE AROUND MY HOME: My house is in the suburbs of Reykjahlíðar village by the north east corner of Lake Mývatn. It is short on major services, restaurants, sightseeing outlets and the most popular travel destinations. A wide range of hiking trails can be found in the vicinity, golf course, gym, and outdoor activities. The highlands of Iceland are in the backyard of the area around Lake Mývatn, Askja and Víti. Dettifoss Waterfall is 50 km away. Húsavík and whale watching are 56 km away. Goðafoss waterfall 50 km away, Ásbyrgi 80 km It takes two minutes to drive to the town center where there’s a bank, post office, supermarket, gasoline station, information center and the unique local handcraft store Dyngjan with lot of sheep wool products, artcraft, home made bread, jams and more. It only takes five minutes to drive to the Mývatn Nature Baths, a perfect relaxing end to a long day. Several restaurants are within 5 minutes drive if you want to make your stomach happy. Popular nature wonders like volcanic active area Krafla with explosion crater Víti and Leirhnjúkur, Hverir high thermal area, the explosion crater Hverfjall, Grjótagjá - a fissure with two caves and hot underground stream inside, the troll garden Dimmuborgir and the pseudocrater area Skútustaðir are reachable within 5 to 15 minutes drive. .. NORTHERN LIGHTS: From late August and all winter through to middle of April the Northern Lights can be seen. Lake Mývatn is located high in the mountains, which gives good chances to spot the lights. We have more clear sky and higher rates of seeing the lights than other areas in Iceland. I am glad to give you hints to point out great spots to let yourself enchant from this nature wonder and to take magnificent photos MIDNIGHT SUN: You can experience midnight sun from mid-May to mid-July. This time is a unique experience of energy and timelessness. The night's lights are mild and soothing, the nature slumbering, the birds silent for a while. In 2 hours there is absolute silence, but then it all wakes up again at 4 o'clock when the sun comes up and the birds begin to sing joyfully again. I especially recommend waking up one night at this time and experiencing tranquility and quiet in the unique nature of Lake Myvatn. .
  • The stay with Oli and Bianca was very pleasant. We received a warm welcome from Bianca. The room was clean and big enough for two people. Generally the property was clean. We also got tips for things to do. The dog was sweet as sugar and very well-behaved (under no circumstances should you be afraid). Highly recommended!

    Bircan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cute little place. The couple gave great insight to what to do there. Doesnt really matter that the space is communal. We were out and about the whole time.

  • Make sure you

    Emma2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Here, it's a real Airbnb. You stay with the inhabitant and you share with him the common rooms: bathroom / wc and kitchen. For this to work, schedules are given for the use of the kitchen and the bathroom. Oli took the time to welcome us and introduce us to his homestay. It is open to all kinds of conversations. He will be able to guide you in your exploration of the environment. If you do not ask for it it will leave you perfectly calm and autonomous too. The house is decorated in a cozy and cozy way. We had a nice 2 night stay.

  • This farm and hotel is an absolute must if you are in the Myvatn area. It is with in extremely easy reach of the nature baths, volcano, and hot spring cave. The restaurant served some of the best dishes we had in Iceland and provided a unique opportunity to learn more about Iceland's farm-to-table movement. The hotel room was lovely and well appointed. We will definitely be back!

  • Smelling a little bit, but the rest was good. I recommend it.

    Eva2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Clean space. Very pretty around the property. My mother took many photos from on and around the property. The shared hallway is not an issue as only the bedroom is separate from the rest of the space and the hallway can be closed off by doors in the apartment. There is no couch in the (somewhat small) living space.

    Ryan2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and well equipped loft, with comfortable beds and everything you need for a couple of days stay at Lake Myvatn.

  • Location was perfect. Great hikes right across the street. Meeting Freydi, her baby girl and parents was the highlight while riding the icelandic horses through lava fields

    Carla2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Housing very well located and very clean. The family is very friendly and allowed us to discover the Icelandic environment through a very nice horseback commented.

    Jean-Luc2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place was close to the attraction on the south side of the lake and it is the quieter end. The owners were very friendly and they greeted us each time we went to the place.

    Bei2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Freydis Anna's place was exactly as described. Communication was excellent and the host checked us in happily even though we had some problems, and arrived very late at night. They don't speak much English, but Freydis' Mother was lovely, and tried her best. The apartment is comfortable and a good amount of space with all the amenities one would need. The bathroom is also quite large and every thing is brand new. We were a group of 4, so had also rented the additional bedroom that is across the hallway, and accessed via the host's hallway, but it was totally private with a divider, and we never saw the host while going back and forth. We only stayed for 1 night, and literally arrived late, and checked out in the morning, but it was a pleasant and comfortable stay, and a good location to visit all the sights around Lake Myvatn.

  • Stefan was one of our most personable hosts and was happy to spend time getting to know his guests. We enjoyed learning about his band and aspects of Icelandic culture. He recently renovated half the house as an Airbnb with several rooms + shared bathroom, and it is nicely updated and clean. While there isn't a full kitchen, there is a microwave and refrigerator, plus plates, mugs, silverware, coffee, tea, which allowed us to prepare breakfast and dinner there. The location is great, just minutes away from most attractions in the area. Thanks Stefan again for your hospitality!

    A brand-new nature lodge in the heart of Lake Mývatn's Laxárhraun lava-field. Birkilauf is situated right next to some of Mývatn's most stunning natural phenomenons, yet close to all the main establishments and services in the surrounding area. Birkilauf is family-owned and built from local materials, and offers accommodation in this quiet and peaceful area, where a family member is always on-site to receive guests, provide services, and to advise on activities in the surrounding area.
    Situated in a lava field next to Lake Mývatn, Birkilauf is a secluded guest-house in a fantastic location with 4 twin/double rooms, each with it's own bathroom and shower, and a private exit to a terrace. A large fully equipped kitchen, living-room, and terrace are shared. Fantastic lake and mountain views can be enjoyed from the terrace, where dining is also possible.
    Mývatn (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈmiːˌvaʰtn̥]) is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland, not far from Krafla volcano. The lake and its surrounding wetlands have an exceptionally rich fauna of waterbirds, especially ducks. The lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms, including lava pillars and rootless vents (pseudocraters). The effluent river Laxá is known for its rich fishing for brown trout and Atlantic salmon.
  • Great room and an even better common area to hang out. The kitchen is amazing if you want to prepare your own meals. If you don’t want to cook there are a couple restaurants nearby. Great location!

  • Real peaceful place and welcoming. Clean, comfortable and convenient. Great for a big family booking as well. Fully equipped kitchen.

  • From the spacious living room to the well-stocked kitchen, Johann has thought of everything! He was so welcoming and gave us tips for activities and restaurants! We also enjoyed chatting with other guests from other countries!

    Lorie2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful modern home

    Heather2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2019 and had a great experience. Communication with the host was clear, he lives downstairs so is never too far away if needed. There’s a total of 4 rooms, each with a private bathroom. There is a spacious common area and kitchen that is shared with other guests..the host provides all of the cooking basics you’d ever need plus some extras such as eggs, milk, juice, jam, and delicious homemade breads. The host is a wealth of information about Iceland and its history, who went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip. Would definitely stay here again if traveling through the area.

    Alyssa2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Super welcoming landlord + high-end decoration + superb view, high cost performance. The living room has 180 degree floor-to-ceiling windows, which are perfect for sitting in the living room at night and waiting for the aurora, we also waited for the aurora! The landlord Johann is super welcoming and knowledgeable. As Geek we have found a lot of common topics. Awesome night, thanks to Johann!

    Harry2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice with a fantastic kitchen and common area, so that even with others there, we didn't feel crowded. The beds were very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. We were greeted warmly and given a lot of assistance for local information, so we could make the most of our time in the area.

    Myvatn, Skútustaðahreppur, Iceland

    Perfect spot for midnight sun and Northern lights. Within 15 minutes drive to magic volcanic landscape, restaurants and Mývatn Nature Baths. I rent two small double rooms. You share my home with me, my girlfriend and my dog. I am native, born and raised on the farm Vogar. Once landscaper and local guide I am happy to share with you my knowledge about the area and the life around the lake. If you like a homely stay with locals and get knowledge about the area, welcome to book.
    My house is located in a quiet street in the village of Reykjahlíð, north east of Lake Mývatn. The HOUSE itself is an old, cosy and lovable small wooden house with soul. The floor cracks a bit when you walk, kind of talking to you, telling stories of the past. And the walls are thin, keeping no secrets. First you enter a small and cosy HALL, decorated in TRADITIONAL ICELANDIC STYLE, with new and old furniture and photos of my family on the walls. Feel welcome to have a seat at my small old family table, heat water for tea or coffee and enjoy your meal. The BEDROOMS are small but comfortable. They are equipped with comfortable single beds, reading lamps, table, mirror, chair and darkening curtains -blinder-. The beds will be made at your arrival and your towels is on your bed. The rooms are decorated with antique things from my parents farm usable as hangers. My girlfriend loves to handcraft with sheep wool. You are welcome to wear her houseshoes, keeping your feet warm. The BATHROOM is shared with us. It is equipped with a shower, toilet, sink, a cupboard and a hairdryer. We live and sleep in the living room with a small KITCHEN. You are welcome to use our kitchen for breakfast and SIMPLE COOKING from 8am to 8pm. We want you to feel like home and If you like, take a moment to talk to us, we can exchange knowledge about both of our cultures, which I think will enrich the lives and experience of us both.
    WHAT TO SEE AROUND MY HOME: My house is in the suburbs of Reykjahlíðar village by the north east corner of Lake Mývatn. It is short on major services, restaurants, sightseeing outlets and the most popular travel destinations. A wide range of hiking trails can be found in the vicinity, golf course, gym, and outdoor activities. The highlands of Iceland are in the backyard of the area around Lake Mývatn, Askja and Víti. Dettifoss Waterfall is 50 km away. Húsavík and whale watching are 56 km away. Goðafoss waterfall 50 km away, Ásbyrgi 80 km It takes two minutes to drive to the town center where there’s a bank, post office, supermarket, gasoline station, information center,pharmacy and the unique local handcraft store Dyngjan with lot of sheep wool products, artcraft, home made bread, jams and more. It only takes five minutes to drive to the Mývatn Nature Baths, a perfect relaxing end to a long day. Several restaurants are within 5 minutes drive if you want to make your stomach happy. Popular nature wonders like volcanic active area Krafla with explosion crater Víti and Leirhnjúkur, Hverir high thermal area, the explosion crater Hverfjall, Grjótagjá - a fissure with two caves and hot underground stream inside, the troll garden Dimmuborgir and the pseudocrater area Skútustaðir are reachable within 5 to 15 minutes drive. .. NORTHERN LIGHTS: From late August and all winter through to middle of April the Northern Lights can be seen. Lake Mývatn is located high in the mountains, which gives good chances to spot the lights. We have more clear sky and higher rates of seeing the lights than other areas in Iceland. I am glad to give you hints to point out great spots to let yourself enchant from this nature wonder and to take magnificent photos. MIDNIGHT SUN: You can experience midnight sun from mid-May to mid-July. This time is a unique experience of energy and timelessness. The night's lights are mild and soothing, the nature slumbering, the birds silent for a while. In 2 hours there is absolute silence, but then it all wakes up again at 4 o'clock when the sun comes up and the birds begin to sing joyfully again. I especially recommend waking up one night at this time and experiencing tranquility and quiet in the unique nature of Lake Myvatn.
  • Lovely hosts, lovely rooms, and gorgeous landscape.

  • Oli was such a wonderful host that we never felt like we are out of our home. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your very beautiful home, Oli. We talked for almost half an hour about the culture in Iceland and how life works there. He was a tour guider before, so he gave us very excellent tips about local places. He was very easy and kind person to talk with. So was his wife. She made a very good pair of shoes from wool at home. And they allowed us to use them during our stay and it was fabulous. She also has mini store in that she sells all handcrafted wool things. You should must visit that and JUST PURCHASE FROM THERE. (VERY FASHIONABLE AND CHEAPER THEN REYKJAVIK CITY STORES). We liked their home and interior so much that we decided to modify our bedroom little bit in our home. His home was located in very nice area. It was very quite at night and has good view out of the window to look for northern lights easily. Overall, it was excellent stay.

    Deep2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • They are wonderful people and are delightful to talk to. You’ll get great travel trips and lots of local lore. The rooms are great, but you share the WC and the kitchen with the hosts. There is a room where guests can eat their meals by themselves. It’s a very comfortable home.

    Chuck2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts, Oli and Bianca are wonderful. They are very generous with their time and space making our family feel very welcome. Would highly recommend to persons who want to meet and interact with locals!

    Erin2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very comfortable and perfectly located place. It works really well; we were four and we used the kitchen for our dinners and breakfasts. Would be delighted to come again!

    Douglas2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely dog, very friendly.

    Leo2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location is great! Within 5 minutes from the Mihu Hot Spring, the geothermal park is less than 10 minutes away. There is a gas station next to the supermarket. It is very convenient. I will come back next time.

    庆欣2019-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Oli and Bianca are amazing hosts who made us feel welcome and loaded us on information on all the right spots to visits around the area. And their super friendly dog is an added bonus :D! A definitely recommendation if you want to really get to know the people and the area you visit.

    Reykjahlíð, Iceland

    Vogafjós Farm Resort - a family owned property in the wonderful area of Mývatn. We have 26 rooms in romantic log houses and a 80 seat farm to table restaurant. While enjoying your meal you can watch our cows being milked or enjoy the amazing view of the lake. The guesthouses are located in a beautiful area, surrounded by lava rocks and birch trees. It is the perfect location for northern lights scouting. All our rooms have a private bathroom and WIFI. Check in is at Vogafjós Café/Restaurant.
  • Very good experience in the heart of the Mývatn area. Easily accessible, the central building is perfect for warming up in front of the craters and the lake. The cottages placed a little further are impeccably clean, underfloor heating is also greatly appreciated. The team is very available and welcoming. The whole team speaks English, little bonus by even crossing a French! A big thank you to Maria who advised us on places not to miss and which was a great help when we ended up with a flat tire. Thank you Maria!

    Morgane2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • A great hotel at Lake Myvatn! The restaurant was superb as well as the free included breakfast!

    Roman2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very well located at the crossroads of the points of interest of the region, beautiful rooms very clean, good mattresses.

    Daniel2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a cosy and classy log cabin in a stunning location, with the farm's top quality restaurant just across the road, for evening meal and ace breakfast, looking out over the lake. Hear the birds calling, see the volcanic cone change colour dramatically with the light, enjoy the wild flowers. A must for a return visit.

    Mike2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Clean rooms and comfy beds! The free breakfast was a bonus! This is a great place to use as a home base to explore the Mývatn area.

    Vicki2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, better than advertised. The staff is wonderful and the food from farm to table far exceeded my expectations.

    Brad2019-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Clean room, had everything we needed! Breakfast was incredible! Would absolutely recommend.

    Jordan2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • The room is a bit small and the room cannot be cooked. But breakfast is included, breakfast has freshly tied milk! The front desk and the house are separate and the location is good.

    Kathy2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • A nice host which we met during check-in, he has a large dining & living area in this house. We used the washer & dryer provided in the basement, very much appreciated due to travelling around Iceland (Some other places do not provide these).

    Alice2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived with very high expectations as the pictures looked very good. We were not disappointed. A great location and beautiful views of Lake Myvatn. In addition, you can do a lot from there, the owner has met us directly and gave us nice tips The decor is older, but personally we liked it very much. If we come again, we will definitely stop by again.

    Julia2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Cozy house and good location.

    Jimei2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time here. There is a beautiful view of the lake, and the home itself is cozy and comfortable. We took advantage of the well-stocked kitchen and cooked every night. The location is wonderful for traveling around the region - we visited Krafla, Dettifoss, the nature baths, Hverir, and more!

    Mary2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • The interiors and facilities are aging and the bedrooms are separated in the basement, which can make climbing up and down a bit difficult, but the lakeside location makes for a beautiful view.

    Soohyang2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The quiet and solitude at this house is quite amazing for someone who lives in the suburbs in the USA. I enjoyed the quaint farmhouse and Kristin’s photography. It had a lot of personal touch to it. Bedrooms and bathrooms were downstairs which was an interesting layout but the bathrooms were especially spacious. We were only here less than 24 hours but had a good stay and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

    Emily2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

  • We had a really nice stay at Ólis and Biancas place. Everything was extraordinary clean and we loved that the house was decorated with so much heart! We appreciate that both of them made sure that we had everything we needed and that they gave us tips to see the area. We would definitely come back!

  • Bianca and Óli were pleasant during the two nights we spent with them. We were charmed by the typical Icelandic decoration of their house. They were very helpful with advice on activities and routes. Even going so far as to allow us to stay a little longer on the day of our departure, until the road is unlocked following a snowstorm. We highly recommend this accommodation.

    Alexandre2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Oli's room was the perfect place for us to stay for our time in the Myvatn area. Everything was very clean and perfectly equipped and it was very nice that we could also use their kitchen. Also, they have a very cute dog :) We would definitely recommend a stay at the place.

  • A super cozy accommodation! Although it is in the converted cellar, but it still had a very comfortable impression and was very well equipped. All basics were included in the accommodation, the decor was also more than adequate. In the bathroom there is a floor heating, washing machine and dryer are available in the hallway and can be used as often as you like in the evening. There is also a hot pot on site, which can also be used. A gas station is a few meters further away, distance to Myvatn is also not large. Directions, check-in and check-out very uncomplicated. Therefore, we can highly recommend this accommodation!

    Ella2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • This charming studio had everything we needed and more. From the conveniently placed washer and dryer just outside the suite to the heated towel rack in the washroom and the comfortable bed and furniture, it all contributed to a welcoming and cozy space to rest and relax. I only wish I could have spent more time here to explore the property and the surrounding area! And if you play any Niantic games this is in range of a next door church portal/stop/greenhouse.

    Michelle2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • A very charming place to stay! We travelled here from Höfn on the south coast and this place was such a welcoming sight after an exhausting journey. It is clear that Audur and Gylfi have gone to great lengths to make Litla Rosa a wonderful place to stay. Thank you so much!

  • Very pleasant stay and good location. The stay was equipped with all amenities. There is a lot to do in the area. Stefán is a friendly and hospitable man. He is open for a chat and keeps his house very clean.

  • There is one bathroom, so it may be a bit uncomfortable, but the village is in a good location, the room is clean, warm, and especially if you ask the host in advance about Myvatn and other tours, please take advantage of the information that is not available on the Korean website.

  • Easy location to see all the sights in the area. Microwave available if you want to heat something from the supermarket instead of paying Myvatn prices for restaurants! One shared bathroom between 3 rooms so sometimes you’ll have to be patient when waiting for the toilet or shower.

  • Stefan's place is a good location for those visiting Myvan thermal springs, Hverir geothermal spot, Viti Crater, Grjótagjá cave, Hverfjall in North Iceland. His place was very clean, and while we did not meet Stefan (since we arrived very late), the check in process was well communicated to us and was super easy. The bathroom was shared, but sparkling clean. There is access to coffee, tea and a microwave.

  • Very nice room with a big window overlooking the sunset. Thanks for the great holiday. There were no kitchen, but we could use microwave and a kettle, so everything was fine.

  • I've been to Iceland several times and for me, Stefan's place was a real find. First off, Stefan is a real resource. He's been a professional guide and grew up in the Lake Myvatn area so he had some useful tips for me -- much more detailed info than you get in the guidebooks. I also liked the location, just 3 blocks from the gas station, visitor info center and local market. So I saved bucks by storing my food in the fridge and heating it up in the microwave. All the logistical stuff was easy as well. He was there when I arrived but even if he hadn't been, he had made sure I could get in. Good size room, parking, nicely renovated. And all that made a huge difference considering how expensive the Lake Myvatn area can be. Stefan was a great help and a neat person to talk to.

    Mývatn, Iceland, Iceland

    A brand-new nature lodge in the heart of Lake Mývatn's Laxárhraun lava-field. Birkilauf is situated right next to some of Mývatn's most stunning natural phenomenons, yet close to all the main establishments and services in the surrounding area. Birkilauf is family-owned and built from local materials, and offers accommodation in this quiet and peaceful area, where a family member is always on-site to receive guests, provide services, and to advise on activities in the surrounding area.
    Situated in a lava field next to Lake Mývatn, Birkilauf is a secluded guest-house in a fantastic location with 4 twin/double rooms, each with it's own bathroom and shower, and a private exit to a terrace. A large fully equipped kitchen, living-room, and terrace are shared. Fantastic lake and mountain views can be enjoyed from the terrace, where dining is also possible.
    Mývatn (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈmiːˌvaʰtn̥]) is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland, not far from Krafla volcano. The lake and its surrounding wetlands have an exceptionally rich fauna of waterbirds, especially ducks. The lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms, including lava pillars and rootless vents (pseudocraters). The effluent river Laxá is known for its rich fishing for brown trout and Atlantic salmon.
  • Our host was friendly and attentive. The accommodation and amenities exceeded our expectations.

  • Our family has a lovely 4-nights-stay on the farm. We thought it might be too long but neither of us wanted to leave after 4 days! It is located right next to Mývatn and in the middle of many attractions, such as krafla areas. We spent 2 days simply exploring the volcanoes, lava formations, black rocks simply around Mývatn, another day driving to Húsavík for whale watching and another day in Akureyri exploring the town. We love the peace on the farms and the food is great. Our children always say that they want to go the the cow’s place to have meals. The breakfast is so healthy and rich in variety. We even tried the fresh warm milk (while watching the cows being milked during breakfast)! The cafe’s scenery is also amazing. The background is the volcano and cows walking by the lake...We loved our stay on the farm and hope to revisit!

  • We loved staying at the farm. It was charming! We also absolutely loved the breakfast buffet. Meeting the cows was also very special. We were greeted in the morning by a friendly sheep dog and we enjoyed that as well. The Myvatn area is lovely! Everything is close by. We enjoyed the baths tremendously. Thank you for a great experience!
