About the neighbourhood
The house is located along the spectacular Salmon River, Hvítá, one of the greatest salmon rivers in Europe. There are walking paths from the house, where you can enjoy the peaceful nature and walk by the river. If you are staying in the late summer or autumn you will find blueberries growing near the river. You are welcome to pluck them, it´s delicious. The house is a about just over one hour drive East from the Reykjavík Capital and about 20 minutes from Selfoss. In Selfoss you can enjoy one of the nicest swimming pools in Iceland, play golf, visit the great Sagnheimar folk museum where you can learn about the Icelandic culture and saga and shop at the Bonus grocery store. In Sólheimar you will find the interesting Farmers market.
Getting around
I would recommend a car rental to go about in Iceland. Good information regarding that in the pdf file that I will hand out before your arrival.
