In the living room is a luxurious leather furniture, wall fireplace, 40 'Sony Bravia LCD with DVD player and multi-casts TV and a free internet.

It is only 15 minutes drive to center of Reykjavik.

Intresting places near Hafnarfjordur: Some 25 km from Hafnarfjördur (about 25 minute drive) is the famed Krýsuvík geothermal area with its amazing solfataras, boiling mud springs, blowing steam vent and astonishing palette of colour. Just a few minutes’ drive from there are the stunning Krýsuvíkurberg cliffs, where sea birds by the thousands nest and the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash against the rugged shore. Both are examples of amazing natural beauty.

The landscape at Krýsuvík was formed by volcanic activity and upheaval.

The Grænavatn, Gestsstaðavatn and Augun lakes are explosion craters created by volcanic eruptions at various times. Of those, Grænavatn lake is the largest, some 46 meters deep. Its water is green due to thermal algae and crystals which absorb the sun. Gestsstaðavatn lake draws its name from Gestsstaðir, a farm abandoned during the Middle Ages. On either side of the main road are small crater lakes, called Augun, or Eyes.

Hafnarfjordur: Looking for an enjoyable and unique place to visit? Look no further.

Take a break in Hafnarfjörður, the warm-hearted town in the lava,

just south of Iceland’s capital Reykjavík.

Hafnarfjörður’s name simply means ‘harbour fjord’ and refers to

the excellent natural harbour, which has Iceland’s longest history of

continuous port trade - since the 1300s.

Hafnarfjörður is Iceland’s third-largest town, with just over 26,000

residents. And yet that number is open to debate, since legend has it

that some of Iceland’s elves and hidden people live in Hafnarfjörður’s

lava cliffs and rocks, in peaceful coexistence with the town’s human

residents. In fact, it is possible to tour the elf lands, and those with

second sight may even be lucky enough to spot one or two!

Naturally the town also offers plenty of more conventional outdoor

activities, from golf and swimming to horse riding. Museums and

galleries turn the spotlight on history, music and visual arts.

Golf: In 1993 the Oddur Golf Club (GO) – an open golf club – was established and became forthwith a member of the Golf Association of Iceland (GSÍ). Its foundation was of two reasons, firstly to enable the members of GOF to participate on golf tournaments on national basis, and secondly to give all people interested in playing golf an access to this unique golf course.

Both clubs, GOF and GO, have enjoyed a gradual increase in membership in the past and currently the combined memberships of both clubs rank among the highest in the country.

The attendance at the Odd Fellow Golf Course (Urriðavöllur) is by good weather, particularly on week-ends, often quite brisk. Therefore, it is advisable for players to book their round of golf in the early morning hours or the day before.

Ski: The ski areas of Bláfjöll and Skálafell are both only 25 minutes away from the city. Bláfjöll is south west of the city and Skálafell east of the city. Both areas have great ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as tracks for cross-country skiing. Bláfjöll has 15 lifts. Skálafell has 4 lifts.

Awesome ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Johanna's apartment! Even before our arrival, she communicated throughly and promptly. She met us upon arrival to give a brief tour, answer any questions that we had, and to turn over the keys for our stay. It was extremely clean and located in a very nice area of town. The photos online are beautiful, however, it is much nicer in person! All amenities you need are available, from kitchen items, appliances, to linens, as described on her posting. The beds were very comfortable as well as the bedding linens provided on them. It is in walking distance to several eateries, pubs and coffee shops. We were an adult party of 4, and felt quite comfortable with the 2 bedrooms. It was very quiet from room to room, as well as the neighboring apartments (you couldn't hear any outside noise)!! We drove each day to different hiking areas on the western side of Iceland and felt this apartment was a central location to many of the sites. I would DEFINITELY recommend this apartment!!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

This was a very lovely apartment with lots of room to relax after busy days of sightseeing. The beds were very comfortable and no outside noise made it easy to get a good night's sleep. The view of the water is magnificent. The rooftop dining area added a special touch and would be a good place to view the Northern Lights if they appeared. This apartment is highly recommended.
