About the owner: We are family that just love this place and its spectacular and unique nature.
Why the Owner Chose Reykjavik: This cottage is located on the border of the National Park in Saefellsnes just under the famous Glacier Snaefellsjökull that is believed to be one of the seven energy fields of the earth that attracts thousands of people every year. The view from the cottage is straight up to the Glacier to the North and to the Sea from the South. It’s the best location to explore the Peninsula and be filled up by the energy from the Glacier.
