Four bedroom apartment with one kitchen and one bathroom that sleeps up to 9 people in either made up beds or you can bring your own sleeping bags. The apartment is on the top floor in this farmhouse that was built in 1960. At the farm are around 200 sheep in the winter time, 8-10 horses, 1 dog and 1 cat.
This farm is 15-20 minute drive from the beautiful Þjórsárdalur that is the start of the Sprengisandur highland road. Nearest towns are Árnes 9 km, Flúðir 25 km and Selfoss 50 km away.

The space
This is a farmhouse on three floors. The apartment is on the top floor with a beautiful view to the south of Iceland. I live on the middle floor and the dog lives in the basement. There are 2 other family rooms in the basement that can sleep up to 4 people each that can also be rented out as well as 2 cottages next to the house that sleep 2 people each. There is also a bathroom with a shower in the basement.

Guest access
Guests have access to a hot-tub that is located in the garden front of the house. I really recommend lying in the hot-tub on a clear winter night and watch the stars and the northern lights.
Guests are also welcome to go out to the stables in the wintertime to take a look at the sheep, but in the summertime they are all up in the mountains.

Other things to note
You might hear the tractor, quadbike or other machinery going to do some farmwork but it should not be running until after 8 in the morning and should be done well before bedtime in the night. Otherwise you should not hear anything but the silence of nature

Þjórsárdalur is only 15-20 minute drive away where you can enjoy both beautiful nature and rich history. To name a few locations are the waterfalls Háifoss and Hjálparfoss, and the old ruins of the Viking farm Stöng that was deserted during the Hekla eruption in the year 1142. Landmannalaugar and Veiðivötn are also within a driving distance from the Sprengisandur road (nr. F26).
The closest village is Árnes about 7 minute drive away. There is a mini-market and a swimming pool. Flúðir is a larger village, about 25 minutes away that has a supermarket, golf course, wine store, swimming pool and the Secret Lagoon.
