This beautiful house with 8 akers of land is in the heart of south Iceland. Driving to the nearest town, Selfoss, only takes 15 min and 50 min to Reykjavík or Thingvellir national park. Then its ideal to take the golden circle tour and drive to Gullfoss and Geysir. All around the old Geysir are spouting hot springs, such as Strokkur (the butter Churn), which erupts every 3-5 minutes.
We have a chicken coop so every morning you get fresh eggs for breakfast, we also have 7 very gentle Icelandic riding horses. Horseback rides can be arranged. Next summer 5 of our mares will have foals all of them will be born between 1 june and 25 of augu...st, witnessing the birth of a foal is unforgettable!
In the garden you get your own fresh vegetable and herbs during the harvesting season and there you also have a large out door hot tub.
The view from Hofdatun is astonishing, you can see the volcanic islands Vestmannaeyjar as well as Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull
