Entertainment & Activities
An volcanic archipelago island located off the South Coast (you can view the from the cottage directly to the south). The harbor is located about 40 km. from the cottage and it takes about 30 minutes to sail with the ferry to the island. This is an ideal day tour I can totally recommend. The bird life In the island are spectacular, including Puffins (summer). The one of a kind Volcano museum Eldheimar (eldheimar.is/en/) is a visit you will never forget. You can also enjoy the nature by going on a bus/history/nature/volcano tour around the island and/or select a bout tour around the island (vikingtours.is/) and so much more, see vestmannaeyjar.is/en/visit.

If you are up for a moderate hike in the neighborhood, the mountain Thríhyrningur is a great selection. From the top you can view the south towards the sea and Westman Islands as well as the High Land towards the north. To get there, you drive road 261 towards west for about 2 km. until you see the sign Tumastadir. Then you drive about 7 km. On the way you will pass 3 farmsteads. At the last one take a right turn before entering the farm unto a track. You'll come to a fenced gate, open it and drive through and remember to close the gate (the farmer will not be happy if you don't). When you see the river, park the car, you will see the hiking trail on your right leading towards the mountain.

Breiðamerkurjökull is an outlet glacier of the larger glacier of Vatnajökull in southeastern Iceland. Emerging as a tongue of the Vatnajökull, it ends in a small lagoon, known as Jökulsárlón (e. Glacier Lagoon). Icebergs break away from the tongue of the glacier and drift slowly to the mouth of the lagoon and eventually join the ocean. The distance from the Glacier Lagoon is about 276 kilometers (171 mi) away from the cottage. I would recommend to schedule a day tour as there are many interesting places to visit on the same route as for example Skaftafell National Park, see Guide Book.

If you are planing to do the Golden Circle tour, I recommend you pay Fridheimar a visit. At Friðheimar, they grow tomatoes all year round, despite Iceland’s long, dark winters, under artificial lighting in greenhouses. They welcome visitors to see their greenhouses, and then enjoy a taste of the crop. Visitors can also shop delicious food souvenirs, made of their tomatoes and cucumbers. They also breed horses, and put on a horse shows. Distance from the Cottage is 83 km (51.5 Mi).
Everything Else
Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths is located in the center of the most popular tourist route in Iceland, the Golden Circle. A unique experience of the healing powers of the geothermal springs. Soak in a natural pool, listen to the bubbling hot spring in the steam rooms, or for the venturesome, take a dip in the refreshing lake. As Fontana is part of the popular route the Golden Circle, I would recommend relaxing at the baths after an adventurous day exploring the attractions of the Golden Circle. Fontana is about 98 kilometers away from the cottage.
